What Makes the Sparkle?
Metallic epoxies combine durable glossy coatings with colored undercoatings and sparkling mica or metal nanoparticles. In addition to picking different colors of floor coat, you can also select different colored nanoparticles for a variety of special effects. Here are some of the choices:
- Sparkle— Mica and metallic flakes are specially known for this effect. By altering the size or number of nanoparticles, and their hues, you decide upon the resulting sparkle.
- Iridescence— Birds like peacocks have iridescent feathers. The colors of the feathers change as either you or the bird moves in the light. When iridescence is added to epoxy coatings, it’s the floor that changes hues as you walk through the room.
- Pearlescence— Akin to iridescence, pearlescence is more subdued in the color change effect, resembling the luster of pearls, opals or abalones. This light effect reminds you of looking through prisms or the vibrance of a rainbow.
- Gloss— While sparkle is like the twinkle of a star, gloss defines the reflection of light from surfaces. Epoxy flooring is known for allowing for a quality shine, but metallic flooring takes it to a whole new level! Although much is dependent on the design, maximum shine is seen with metallic floors.
- Depth— By skillfully 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 third dimension. Depth, movement, waves, currents, atmosphere and more are suggested by an artfully designed and executed metallic floor.
