Now the company owner, Kolleck is the fourth generation in the 1939-founded family business. He adds that he had a long apprenticeship, starting when he was 8 years old. Their business involves “hard-core” industrial epoxy coatings and ship coatings, as well as high-end decorative work on the other end of the continuum. He says their service area includes the entire U.S. market, as well as some international work.
Kolleck laid out his pattern for the demo with tape. Then he cut pattern lines with a diamond blade on an angle grinder. Most of his work, however, involved laying down applications of metallic epoxy colors to make his pattern come alive. Achieving variability within a color is an artistic skill for this kind of work.
To finish his work and to bring everything together, he applied a coating of clear epoxy.
