West Coast Epoxy is a metallic flooring specialist excited to add shine to your concrete floors!
What Creates the Brilliance?
West Coast Epoxy creates your customizable metallic epoxy by combining colored undercoats with specially made mica or metal nanoparticles. In addition to picking the hues of the epoxies, you also opt for the types, sizes and colors of sparkling flakes. Applying these options, here are the effects you can create:
- Iridescence— Birds like hummingbirds or peacocks have iridescent feathers. The hues of the feathers alter as either the bird or you move in the light. When iridescence is applied to epoxy coatings, it’s the floor that changes color as you move through the room.
- Pearlescence— This effect is akin to that of iridescence, but with a focus on matching the soft colors made by abalone or pearls. It reminds you of a rainbow or the colorful light of a prism.
- Sparkle— Mica and metallic particles are excellent light reflectors. Increase or decrease the sparkle by adjusting the size and number of nanoparticles in the epoxy.
- Depth— By artfully shaping the pigment layers, aggregating nanoparticles in some areas while at the same time leaving fewer in others, our team members create a sense of the 3rd dimension. Depth, motion, waves, currents, clouds and more are realized by an artfully designed and executed metallic floor.
- Gloss— While sparkle is like star twinkle, gloss means the reflection of light from surfaces. Epoxy flooring is known for allowing for a quality shine, but metallic flooring takes it to a completely new level! Although much depends on the design, maximal shine is attainable with metallic flooring.
Using a metallic floor design from West Coast Epoxy, you are assured that your floor will be like no others! To see the fascinating possibilities with metallic floor coatings, talk with the professionals at West Coast Epoxy for metallic floors in Diablo.
