Micas Color

What are Natural ColorMicas™?

ColorMicas™ make resinous flooring glisten with natural crystalline beauty. These unique flakes are derived from a group of sheet silicate minerals, called mica, which include muscovite, phlogopite, biotite, clintonite and others. The mica family of minerals contain highly perfect basil cleavage. Through a highly technical manufacturing process, the distinctive hexagonal atom arrangement of the mica minerals is separated into sheet-like pieces, seperated into natural color groups and broken down into standardized flakes sizes. These unique flakes provide a natural metallic luster that cannot be achieved with other engineered minerals.

Natural ColorMicas™ resinous flooring media is currently available in 6 unicolor-styles and two standard size ranges (Macro & Micro) that can be blended, mixed and matched to customize your floor and complement any décor.
