Bring the light of metallic paint to your concrete foundations with the added strength and endurance of epoxy coatings from West Coast Epoxy. Create floors with remarkable pearlescence, iridescence, shine, depth, metallic sparkle, and swirl. The ordinary concrete floor in your showroom, lobby, home, hallway, or gym can appear like clouds, waves, currents, or the depths of space.
What Creates the Sparkle?
West Coast Epoxy creates your custom metallic epoxy by combining colored under coatings with specialized mica or metal nanoparticles. Besides choosing the hues of the epoxies, you also select the types, colors and sizes of sparkling flakes. Using these options, here are the effects you can create:
- Sparkle — Mica and metallic particles are outstanding light reflectors. Decrease or increase the amount of sparkle by altering the size or number of nanoparticles in the epoxy.
- Iridescence — Visualize the feathers of a hummingbird or peacock and you can imagine the effect of iridescence. When applied with epoxy coatings, the floor changes color, based on the light source or point of view.
- Pearlescence — Akin to iridescence, pearlescence is more subtle with the color change effect, resembling the luster of pearls or opal. This optical effect reminds you of looking through a prism or the vibrance of rainbows.
- Depth — By artfully adjusting the pigment layers, collecting nanoparticles in some areas as well as leaving fewer in others, our team members create a sense of three dimensions. Depth, movement, waves, current, atmosphere and more are realized by an artfully designed and executed metallic floor.
- Gloss — Shine and gloss are tightly related words. Essentially, the amount of gloss your floor has tells you approximately how much it shines. Shine describes the amount of light reflected off the surface. Therefore, the glossier a surface, the more it will shine.
