Bring the beauty of metallic paint to your concrete foundations with the added strength and durability of epoxy coatings from West Coast Epoxy. Make floors with remarkable pearlescence, iridescence, shine, swirl, depth and metallic sparkle. The ordinary concrete floor in your showroom, home, lobby, hallway or gym can look like clouds, waves, swirling currents, or the depths of space.
What Creates the Sparkle?
West Coast Epoxy makes your personalized metallic epoxy by combining colorful undercoatings with specialized metal or mica nanoparticles. In addition to selecting the colors of the epoxies, you also pick the types, colors and sizes of sparkling flakes. Applying these possibilities, here are the effects you can create:
- Sparkle— Mica and metallic particles are outstanding light reflectors. Decrease or increase the sparkliness by altering the size and number of nanoparticles in the epoxy.
- Iridescence— Visualize the feathers of a peacock or a hummingbird and you can imagine the effect of iridescence. When applied with epoxy coatings, the floor changes color, based on the source of light or point of view.
- Pearlescence— Akin to iridescence, pearlescence is more subtle in the color change effect, resembling the luster of pearls. This optical effect reminds you of looking through a prism or the vibrance of rainbows.
- Gloss— While sparkle is like twinkling stars, gloss defines the reflection of light from a surface. Epoxy flooring is known for allowing for a quality shine, but metallic flooring takes it to a totally new level! Although much is dependent on the design, maximum shine is possible with metallic flooring.
- Depth— Depending on the arrangement of the epoxy layers, and by bunching the metal or mica flakes accordingly, your floor can come to life with 3D! The illusions of depth, atmosphere, motion, waves, currents, and more are realized with the properly designed use of metallic epoxies.
