EpoMatte is engineered to be used as Matting agent additive in Epoxy, Acrylic, Urethane and Polyurea.
SHIMICOAT EpoMatte is used to convert high gloss epoxy resin into satin or matte finish. EpoMatte can be used in Epoxy, Acrylic, Urethane and Polyurea resins. The product is added to any of SHIMICOAT Clear or Tinted Epoxy Resin/Part A. Mix for 2-3min to ensure ideal suspension. Add the required amount of Curing Agent/Part B followed by mixing and application to your surface.
Add into paint/resin at a rate of 10-20gr/Lt and apply using Roller, Brush or squeegee. Constantly mix to maintain suspension of EpoMatte and infirmity of the pot. While someone is applying the product onto the surface, another installer should go over the floor and back-roll and cross-roll and ensuring the entire surface is being coated evenly.
SHIMICOAT Epomatte is suitable for use in residential, commercial and industrial areas providing a long-lasting Satin or Matte finish surface.
Why is Slip Resistant Flooring important for Homes
Although many homeowners prefer installing finely polished shiny tile floors, hardwood floors or gorgeous looking granite, these materials always come with the risk of causing potentially dangerous slips and trips. We all know that smooth floors are easier to slip on, particularly when water is spilled. The condition can worsen, particularly when children and seniors are involved. This emphasizes the need to consider a slip resistant floor that can replace hazardous flooring and increase traction, especially for certain areas exposed to rain or high traffic such as entries, balconies, steps, etc.
Most homes feature hard flooring that includes vinyl, linoleum, ceramic smooth tile, smooth stone, concrete and others in some part of the home interior like the bathroom, laundry, kitchen and even garage. These areas are more prone to slips and trips as the chances of water spillage are higher.
What to do:
When it comes to young children and an aging population, it is especially important to create an accident-free home. One of the first areas that can be addressed is by eliminating any types of slip inducing flooring and replacing them with a safer option.
One option to consider is SHIMICOAT range of decorative polyaspartic and epoxy coatings. SHIMICOAT provides a unique and decorative alternative to tile and other flooring. With added benefits of SlipRes Xtra Grip, these ?Rolled? floor coatings can be applied over old and new concrete and other substrates, providing the home owner with a choice of beautiful colours and a finish that is both slip-resistant, durable, modern, hygiene and functional.

? Anti-slip treatment can be effective for five years and over, reapplication is easy and economical.
The slip resistance test classification and the mean angle of inclination:
SHIMICOAT implement Australian Standard for characterization of surface materials and determination of friction factors under wet and dry conditions.
This Standard is also intended for evaluating surface applications and treatments including products such as sealers, polishes and etchants which may modify the surface characteristics of pedestrian surfaces.
The method for the measurement of wet slip resistance being used for external and internal pedestrian surfaces and those pedestrian surfaces that have a reasonably foreseeable risk of the presence of wet substances such as water, grease and oil.
