Bring the beauty of metallic paint to your concrete foundations with the extra strength and durability of epoxy coatings from West Coast Epoxy. Create floors with dazzling shine, pearlescence, iridescence, swirl, depth, and metallic sparkle. The boring concrete foundation in your lobby, home, showroom, gym, or hallway can appear like waves, clouds, swirling currents, or the depths of space.
What Makes the Sparkle?
Metallic epoxies combine durable glossy coats with pigmented undercoats and sparkling metal or mica nanoparticles. Besides selecting different colors of floor coat, you can also choose the colored nanoparticles for a variety of special effects. Here are some of the options:
- Sparkle — Metallic and mica particles are exceptional light reflectors. Increase or decrease the sparkle by adjusting the size or number of nanoparticles in the epoxy.
- Iridescence — Visualize the feathers of a hummingbird or a peacock and you can visualize the effect of iridescence. When applied on epoxy coatings, the floor changes color, based on the source of light or point of view.
- Pearlescence — This effect is similar to that of iridescence, but with a focus on matching the soft colors produced by pearls reminding you of a rainbow or the colorful light of prisms.
- Gloss — While sparkle is like twinkling stars, gloss defines the reflection of light from surfaces. Epoxy flooring is known for creating a quality shine, but metallic flooring takes it to a whole new level! Although much is dependent on the design, maximum shine is reachable with metallic floors.
- Depth — By skillfully shaping the pigment layers, aggregating nanoparticles in some areas and leaving fewer in others, our team members create a sense of three dimensions. Depth, movement, waves, currents, atmosphere, and more are suggested by an artfully designed and executed metallic floor.
