Nature Stone® flooring is an unequaled blend of natural stone and specially formulated epoxy that is expertly hand troweled to create a seamless, slip-resistant floor covering surface. The result is a showroom quality floor. Our topcoat adds a shiny, diamond-like finish, which enhances the beauty and color of natural stone that will last for a lifetime.
Nature Stone® is a unique floor covering system that is durable, long-lasting and stain resistant.
Nature Stone® covers unsightly concrete and its thickness can be adjusted up or down to correct
uneven concrete floors.
Nature Stone® flooring is a porous product that allows moisture/ dampness to pass through the matrix eliminating puddling and leaving the surface safe, clean and dry. Water, hydrostatic pressure, even flooding will not harm a Nature Stone® floor covering.
Nature Stone® flooring is a blend of specially formulated, high-quality 100% resin. Unlike other stone epoxy products, Nature Stone® does not add solvents to dilute the epoxy or cut cost in any way. Nature Stone® epoxy is pre-measured in units to guarantee consistent quality, proper performance, to ensure UV resistance, and to provide gloss retention, adhesion, strength and proper curing of your epoxy flooring. The quality and amount of the epoxy is crucial to produce a superior product.
Nature Stone® is consistently striving to improve our floor covering products and provide our customers with an unparalleled stone and epoxy flooring. We continue to make a substantial investment in research and development in our effort to offer superior stone and epoxy flooring materials and installation processes to our customers.
Type of Stone
Nature Stone® Aggregate: Just as important as the epoxy is the size, type and cut of the stone being used. Nature Stone® selects and offers the best stones for our stone flooring system. The stone type, whether small or large, flat cut or rounded, a river stone, or a marble or quartz stone, will determine the proper ratio of stone mix to the amount of epoxy required for maximum performance.
The Nature Stone® mix ratio was developed to ensure the proper amount of stone to epoxy unit. The mix ratio can vary from 100-lbs. to 250-lbs. of stone to epoxy depending on the type of stone. The cost of materials can vary dramatically depending on the mix ratio.
Nature Stone® floor covering is typically installed 1/2" to 3/4" thick for maximum strength and durability. Our proven mix stone and epoxy mix ratio and application is designed to provide:
- Proper compressive strength (PSI).
- Proper "flow through" to self-prime and guarantee maximum adhesion to concrete.
- Proper stone-to-stone binding/adhesion.
- Proper amount of hydrostatic parts (to relieve pressure and allow air circulation)
Protective Topcoat: Our Exclusive Stone and Epoxy Flooring System is top-coated with a non-yellowing, protective topcoat. It has been proven that this topcoat provides longer gloss retention, protection from UV exposure and wear, ease of cleaning and lower maintenance costs over the years.
Nature Stone® Flooring Expansion Strips
Our specially designed Nature Stone® flooring expansion strips are unique to Nature Stone® and were developed by and manufactured exclusively for Nature Stone®. Used in appropriate areas, they work with the concrete floor expansion and control joints to dramatically reduce the risk of stress cracks in your basement or garage floor.
Nature Stone® uses 40 different types of stones that can be combined to create a wide range of exotic colors such as Alabama Rainbow, Razorback Red, and White Rose Marble. Borders can be created from a different shade of stone for a dynamic look.
Nature Stone® can also be used to create special designs such as a monogram, fleur-de-lis, or even a logo inlaid into your floor.
