decorative concrete and resinous flooring systems

Decorative Quartz Flooring System

Duraamen’s Decorative Kwortz Flooring System (Quartz Flooring System) is a combination of beauty and strength that is engineered to keep your floor looking and performing well for years to come. This 100% solids resin epoxy is second to none, and can be used with a variety of graded quartz, marble or ceramic fillers. Our graded fillers provide stunning aesthetic qualities, as well as, anti-slip properties, high impact and abrasion resistance. Duraamen’s decorative quartz flooring can be finished with a wide selection of gloss or satin top coats. Custom blends and other flooring options are available to help you create a uniquely beautiful floor.

Just because Duraamen’s epoxy quartz flooring is beautiful, doesn’t mean it’s delicate—far from it. Kwortz flooring is ultra-tough. It has been engineered for use in industrial applications, commercial properties, and other facilities where a decorative floor surface is needed and high-performance characteristics are required. It can be installed at different thicknesses for various amounts of impact resistance and can be top-coated with Novolac epoxy resin to provide chemical resistance.

Our decorative quartz flooring is often used where the existing substrate is worn or in a deteriorated condition. Examples of its use include: chemical processing plants, laboratories, rest rooms and locker rooms, light and heavy manufacturing facilities, food processing and warehouses. These are just a few of the uses for this beautiful, high-performance flooring system.

Installed using broadcast, slurry, or trowel methods, Duraamen’s decorative, epoxy quartz flooring is extremely versatile. A trowel application adds to the abrasion and impact resistance of the flooring and also looks slightly better, though this will add cost to the project. Where cost is an issue, broadcasting may be the preferred application method.

When it comes to decorative epoxy quartz flooring Duraamen can’t be outshined. Contact a Duraamen representative to learn more about Kwortz, and for guidance on putting together a flooring system that meets your project requirements.

key considerations:

  • On or below grade installation must have an efficient vapor barrier under the slab
  • Special treatments are necessary where hydrostatic pressure or
    moisture vapor transmission may be present
  • Substrate temperature must be a minimum of 550F
    (low temperature cure system available upon request)
  • Substrate must be free of dirt, waxes, curing agents, and other foreign materials
  • All control joints and expansion joints in the substrate must be revealed with
    the appropriate divider strips in the topping

Kwörtz flooring system can be installed in different thickness and top coated with 100% epoxy resin, Novolac epoxy resin or solvent based polyurethane depending upon the performance requirements and application environments.
