Is there really such a thing as a crack resistant floor? We say yes! The GraniFlex Decorative Broadcasting System is a flexible, permanent, and esthetically decorative system. GraniFlex will prove itself by holding up through the most brutal winters and conditions. The coating cures up to ¼” into your concrete resulting in the floors being as tough as a truck tire. You will never have to be concerned with this protective and decorative coating coming off.
The application of GraniFlex happens in a system of applying different components and adding decorative elements such as quartz, sand, or polymer flakes to create a high performance and durable coating that is crack proof and slip proof. GraniFlex exceeds past the competition by having unlimited color options available. The GraniFlex system can penetrate up to 1.5 inches deep into prepared concrete with its flexible tentacle-like rubber. They expand tightly against the capillaries in the concrete making it impossible to remove the coating. Often with other systems this is a problem, but not with GraniFlex!
There are three features of the GraniFlex system:
Flexible Penetration® - The flexible penetration component lets GraniFlex withstand extreme negative hydrostatic pressure without problem. It is able to deeply penetrate the material and cure so that it will never bubble or peel.
Elongation Memory® - This technology makes sure that GraniFlex is relaxed and compressed. It holds its original size and shape preventing any distortion which is a major reason why coatings unbind from forces such as freezing and thawing cycles, gas or water pressure, sudden shock, and vibrations.
Permanent Elongation® - GraniFlex never hardens or become brittle thanks to its ability of 590% elongation. It becomes stronger and maintains its flexibility with age and doesn’t break down like other coatings do. GraniFlex penetrates deeply while strengthening weak concrete or mortar joints preventing any separation.
Proper preparation of surfaces should be completed to ensure the adherence of the coating for many many years. This includes grinding, pressure washing, acid etching, and more to the surface that the GraniFlex is being applied to. A professional should be hired to ensure that the process is accomplished correctly to guarantee lasting results.
