Key Quartz B-65/125 Decorative Resin Flooring System

KEY QUARTZ B-65 & B-125 are decorative resin flooring systems consisting of clear, 100% solids, epoxy resin and colored quartz aggregate. The durable quartz system is finished with clear catalyst-cured coats of resin available in a satin or gloss finish. The installed system can be textured or smooth as desired. Easy maintenance minimizes bacterial growth. The decorative quartz aggregates are available in a series of pre-blended patterns or solid colors.

Crack-free installations of KEY QUARTZ B-125 can be achieved when installed in conjunction with a Key Waterproofing and Crack Isolation Membrane. An integral cove base can be installed in areas requiring seamless wall to floor coatings. For chemical resistant applications, specify KEY QUARTZ B-65-HP or B-125-HP

Key Advantages
  • Decorative Appearance
  • High Wear and Abrasion Resistance
  • Low Maintenance
  • Safe (non-skid)
  • Chemical Resistant Finishes are Available
Key Considerations
  • On or below grade installation must have an efficient vapor barrier under the slab.
  • Special treatments are necessary where hydrostatic pressure or moisture vapor transmission may be present.
  • Substrate temperature must be a minimum of 55F (Low temperature cure system available on request).
  • Substrate must be free of dirt, waxes, curing agents, and other foreign materials.
  • All control joints and expansion joints in the substrate must be revealed with the appropriate divider strips in the topping.
Typical Uses
KEY QUARTZ B-65 is a 1/16″ system ideal for light foot traffic areas such as powder rooms or hotel/motel bathrooms.

KEY QUARTZ B-125, a 1/8″ system, is the best choice for heavy duty use in corridors, auditoriums, kitchen areas, classrooms, shower rooms, cafeterias, laboratories, correctional and health care facilities, or light production areas.

Application
Concrete surfaces must be in sound condition and properly prepared prior to any KEY RESIN COMPANY flooring system installation. Refer to Key Resin Company Technical Bulletin 1 for specific preparation guidelines.

Installation of KEY QUARTZ B-65/125 involves several steps including priming, applying successive base coats, broadcasting colored quartz, grouting, and sealing. For specific installation guidelines consult Key Resin Company’s Installation Instruction Manual.

Maintenance
After completing the application of KEY QUARTZ B-65/125, the installer should provide the owner with maintenance instructions. If floors become slippery due to animal fats, oil, grease or soap film, clean and rinse thoroughly.

KEY QUARTZ B-65/125 are easily cleaned with neutral soaps or detergents. Routine mechanical scrubbing is recommended for all surfaces having a non-skid texture. Waxing is optional. Long periods of heavy traffic may cause wear patterns necessitating a maintenance application of a finish coat.

Composition
100% solids clear epoxy resin with decorative colored quartz aggregates Urethane and epoxy finish coats provide specific performance characteristics
