What Makes the Brilliance?
Metallic epoxies combine durable glossy coats with pigmented undercoats and sparkling metal or mica nanoparticles. Besides selecting different colors of base coatings, you can also decide upon different colored nanoparticles for a variety of special effects. Here are some of the options:
- Sparkle— Mica and metallic flakes are specifically known for this effect. By altering the size and number of nanoparticles, and their hues, you pick the resulting sparkliness.
- Iridescence— Visualize the feathers of a peacock or hummingbird and you can imagine the effect of iridescence. When applied on epoxy coatings, the floor changes color, based on the light source or viewpoint.
- Pearlescence— This effect is akin to that of iridescence but focuses on matching the soft colors produced by pearls, opals or abalone shells. It reminds you of rainbows or the colorful light of prisms.
- Depth— By artfully arranging the pigment layers, gathering nanoparticles in some areas and leaving fewer in others, our craftworkers create a sense of the 3rd dimension. Depth, motion, waves, currents, atmosphere and more are suggested by a creatively designed and executed metallic floor.
- Gloss— Shine and gloss are closely related terms. Essentially, the level of gloss your floor has tells you specifically how much it shines. And shine represents the amount of light reflected from the surface. Thus, the glossier a surface, the more it shines.
