Back to Mica Basics

Mica is a natural, reflective silicate mineral found in granite. Therefore, when broadcast into an epoxy, polyurethane or polyurea-polyaspartic color coat, this reflective mineral provides the flooring with unique texture, pattern and quality. Because of it’s reflective property, it simply outshines standard polyvinyl acetate (PVA) flooring.

A problem, however, is that mica crystals are so light they tend to “float” in air. This makes for a very difficult and messy broadcast during installation. Why? Because mica “dust” gets into nooks and crannies, prolonging clean-up and providing a potential health hazard for installers.

In addition, some of the mica crystals “sit up” vertically atop the color coat post-broadcast, producing what we call “mica razor blades”. They’re extremely sharp. Therefore, installers must return the following day and sand these down. As a result, it adds up to one needless day of labor to the installation process!

But the mica used in our Bagari SE and Vintage Mica blends is unique. Because our branded “weighted” technology prevents the mica crystals from floating, it makes for a trouble-free broadcast. The same design that prevents floating also allows our mica to embed in the color coat. Therefore, it eliminates the problem of mica razor blades. As a result, installers can immediately apply the final clear coat and drastically cut installation time.
