Epoxy Overlay Aggregates for High-Friction, Non-Slip Surfaces
Kafka Granite produces over 40 different types of crushed marble, granite, quartz, and recycled aggregate for use with epoxy overlays. Our aggregates have been used in overlays of road surfaces, rooftops, and many other applications where a hard stone that won’t break down over time is necessary.
Kafka Granite works with individual state Department of Transportation specifications to produce strong, durable aggregates for high-friction, non-skid road surfaces. Whether bridge decks, exit/entrance ramps, curves, or other preexisting roadway, driving conditions can be greatly improved when this aggregate is applied with a two-part epoxy. Read more ➞
Kafka Granite’s bright White Quartz, Recycled Porcelain, and naturally round Birchwood Granite can be utilized for a new trend to offset the heat-island effect, often referred to as “White Roof” or “Cool Roof”. The Quartz and Porcelain can be applied with an epoxy, while the Birchwood Granite can function as a more traditional roof ballast. Read more ➞

How is epoxy overlay aggregate different than standard aggregate?
The aggregates are the same, however their applications are different. While Kafka manufactures the same aggregate for non-epoxy applications, an epoxy overlay used with our aggregates renders surfaces impermeable, very durable and long-lasting.
