Unique, super heavy duty ArmorStone allows the creation of stone-looking surfaces by using standard painting tools. The ArmorStone System consists of the application of textured primer, epoxy, and sealer/topcoat. The finish of the surface is determined by the type of roller you use. A smooth, standard nap roller gives a smooth, but slightly textured surface. Our available ’tile’ roller gives the look of tile, while the available ’stone’ roller mimics the look of rougher stone or slate, and makes for a more non-slip surface. ArmorStone comes in a stock ‘natural white’ base color and on our ‘Tech’ links have formulas to print up and take to your local paint store to have it tinted to one of 9 beautiful colors, or you can tint to whatever color you want to match your project! (Please note, ArmorPoxy does not offer tinting services).
ArmorStone is a superb product for refinishing steps, walkways, pool decks, sidewalks, locker and pool rooms etc. It is fully UV stable and will not fade in the sun. It’s textured surface is naturally non-skid.
ArmorStone can be made to look like tile by the application of our available ‘grout tape’. The tape is applied over the primer (which ends up showing through as the grout lines so make sure your primer is tinted to your preferred grout color), and then removed after the ArmorStone is applied. Virtually any design or tile pattern can be made with ArmorStone! You can also make ArmorStone look like fieldstone by the same method, but using masking tape and cutting the masking tape with a shop knife in varying widths to mimic loose stone! (We suggest that you get the DVD which shows this method clearly.) ArmorStone is not hard to apply and just ‘rolls out’ like paint. Varying colored surfaces that look like stone accents can be achieved by the use of multiple layers of different tint colors (see DVD for full info). Stone-looking results are effectuated by your imagination and technique!
Note: If you don’t tint both the primer and the ArmorStone, since ArmorStone is semi-translucent you may experience a lightening of the surface or you may need more material to cover the lighter-colored primer.
ArmorStone is UV stable and won’t fade. It’s an amazing product with virtually limitless applications for almost any surface. Once applied and cured, if you attempt to scratch it with a coin, the coin will wear down and will not affect the ArmorStone. It’s waterproof, superbly durable, non skid, and adheres to most any clean/dry surface. Great for refinishing shower areas, pool decks, stairs, garages, counters and more. There are endless possibilities for the use of ArmorStone.
We recommend you read the instructions to familiarize yourself with ArmorStone prior to application. A DVD installation video is available for a nominal charge which is refundable against your purchase. ArmorStone is available exclusively from us and is made to our exacting specifications by a leading manufacturer in Canada.
Please note that the ArmorStone is only shipped in the ‘Natural White’, and can be tinted to virtually any color. For tinting the primer, select a color at your local paint store and advise them to use 25% of the recommended tints for your color selection when tinting the primer, and 10% of the recommended tints when tinting the rollable stone layer. Please note to check your color visually in the can and add color tints if desired.
