Bring the beauty of metallic paint to your concrete foundations with the extra resilience and toughness of epoxy coatings from West Coast Epoxy. Create floors with brilliant shine, pearlescence, iridescence, metallic sparkle, depth and swirl. The boring concrete foundation in your showroom, home, lobby, gym or hallway can appear like waves, clouds, swirling currents, or the depths of deep space.
What Creates the Sparkle?
Metallic epoxies combine durable glossy coatings with pigmented undercoats and sparkling mica or metal nanoparticles. In addition to picking different colors of base coat, you can also decide upon different colored nanoparticles for a variety of special effects. Here are some of the possibilities:
- Sparkle— Mica and metallic particles are exceptional light reflectors. Increase or decrease the sparkliness by altering the size and number of nanoparticles in the epoxy.
- Iridescence— Imagine the feathers of a hummingbird or peacock and you can visualize the effect of iridescence. When applied with epoxy coatings, the floor changes color, based on the source of light or viewpoint.
- Pearlescence— Akin to iridescence, pearlescence is more subtle in the color change effect, resembling the luster of pearls. This light effect reminds you of looking through prisms or the vibrance of a rainbow.
- Depth— By skillfully adjusting the pigment layers, gathering nanoparticles in some areas as well as leaving fewer in others, our craftworkers create a sense of a third dimension. Depth, motion, waves, currents, atmosphere and more are suggested by an artfully designed and executed metallic floor.
- Gloss— Shine and gloss are tightly related terms. Basically, the level of gloss your floor has tells you exactly how much it will shine. And shine represents the amount of light reflected from the surface. Therefore, the glossier a surface, the more it will shine.
