it is probably concrete using pea gravel in it instead of granite gravel, and they work the top and bring it to a cream, then take a hose and wash off the mortar which will expose teh pea gravel. Then they wait a bit and roll it down with a heavy roller.

I''ve seen some of that epoxy handiwork...but I''ve never seen any of it that lasts. UV is pure he** on epoxy.

Before you invest in that product, I''d suggest you ask about UV resistance. If you are using it indoors and out of the sun, I can''t see why it wouldn''t last forever.

There is a produdct out there that is used around swimming pools, On a sight seeing trip a few years back I was at the south fork ranch in Dallas. All around the pool there was the same thing but it wasn''t solid it was firm and would hold weight but water would run right thru it. It looked like wet pea gravel all the time. Ground water would not run into the pool just soak in.

I went to the grand opening of a certain overpriced motorcycle dealer today and was left largely unimpressed...except for the floor. Yes,folks..20 grand plus bikes all around and im checkin out the floor. I thought it was carpet at first but then seen it was made of small pebbles. They were about the size of pea gravel and rolled very flat. They were,i belive,glued down with some kind of sealer over the whole thing. Has anyone seen this before? It looked like it would hold up forever. Does anyone have any info on a floor of this type? Thanx for the input.[}:)]
