Decorative Flakes for Epoxy-Coated Floors

With a flick of your wrist, you can change the entire look of your floor using a sprinkle of decorative flakes that come with a variety of color and coverage options. Good for covering imperfections and breaking up the look of a solid floor, color flakes can even approximate the look of terrazzo or granite.
