Yes! West Coast Epoxy is a metallic flooring specialist eager to add wonder to your concrete floors!
What Creates the Sparkle?
West Coast Epoxy creates your customizable metallic epoxy by combining colorful undercoats with specialty mica or metal nanoparticles. In addition to choosing the hues of the epoxies, you also pick the types, colors, and sizes of sparkling flakes. Applying these options, here are the effects you can create:
- Sparkle — Mica and metallic flakes are especially known for this effect. By altering the size and number of nanoparticles, and their hues, you select the resulting sparkling.
- Iridescence — Visualize the feathers of a hummingbird or peacock and you can visualize the effect of iridescence. When applied on epoxy coatings, the floor changes color, based on the source of light or viewpoint.
- Pearlescence — Similar to iridescence, pearlescence is more subdued in the color altering effect, resembling the lustre of pearls or abalone shells. This optical effect reminds you of looking through a prism or the vibrance of a rainbow.
- Depth — By skillfully arranging the pigment layers, collecting nanoparticles in some areas and at the same time leaving fewer in others, our team members create a sense of 3-dimensionality. Depth, motion, waves, currents, clouds, and more are suggested by an artfully designed and executed metallic floor.
- Gloss — While sparkle is like twinkling stars, gloss means the reflection of light from surfaces. Epoxy flooring is known for making a quality shine, but metallic flooring takes it to a completely new level! Although much is dependent on the design, maximum shine is seen with metallic flooring.
Using a metallic flooring design from West Coast Epoxy, you are guaranteed that your floor will be like no other! To find out the fascinating possibilities with metallic floor coatings in Grass Valley, call the skilled installers at West Coast Epoxy.
