Bring the beauty of metallic paint to your concrete floors with the added strength and toughness of epoxy coatings from West Coast Epoxy. Create floors with astounding pearlescence, iridescence, shine, metallic sparkle, swirl and depth. The simple concrete floor in your showroom, lobby, home, hallway or gym can look like clouds, waves, flowing liquids, or the depths of the universe.
What Makes the Sparkle?
Metallic epoxies combine durable gloss coatings with colorful undercoatings and sparkling mica or metal nanoparticles. In addition to selecting different colors of base coats, you may also select different colored nanoparticles for a variety of special effects. Here are some of the possibilities:
- Sparkle— Metallic and mica particles are remarkable light reflectors. Increase or decrease the amount of sparkle by adjusting the size or number of nanoparticles in the epoxy.
- 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 added to epoxy coatings, it’s the floor that changes hues as you stroll through the room.
- Pearlescence— Similar to iridescence, pearlescence is more subtle with the color altering effect, resembling the lustre of pearls, opals or abalones. This light effect reminds you of looking through prisms or the vibrance of rainbows.
- Depth— Depending on the arrangement of the epoxy layers, and by collecting the metal or mica flakes accordingly, your floor can come to life with a third dimension! The optical illusions of depth, atmosphere, movement, waves, current, and more are realized with the perfect designed application of metallic epoxies.
- Gloss— Although sparkle is like the twinkling of stars, gloss is the reflection of light from a surface. Epoxy flooring is known for providing a quality shine, but metallic flooring takes it to a totally new level! Although much is dependent on the design, maximal shine is reachable with metallic flooring.
