Floor protection and restoration provider Thermal-Chem Corp. has rolled out a new decorative system designed to be LEED-friendly and traffic-tough.

DecoEssence is a three-coat polymer flooring system that uses a metallic pigment to produce a three-dimensional appearance with depth and vibrancy.

Engineered for interior applications, DecoEssence is designed to provide superior wear surface protection in a range of colors, the manufacturer reports.

Available in 11 colors, DecoEssence uses a metallic pigment to produce a 3D appearance. The LEED-compliant system is designed for commercial and residential applications.
