One of the favorite styles of paint jobs for custom cars is sparkling metallic. These dazzling paint schemes add dimensions to attract attention and hold it! Gorgeous adjustments in color result from the iridescent effects and fascinating sparkles produced by thousands of small shiny particles. Can a concrete foundation match these most impressive paint jobs? West Coast Epoxy is a metallic flooring specialist excited to add “brilliant” to your concrete floors!
What Creates the Sparkle?
Metallic epoxies combine durable gloss topcoats with colored undercoats and sparkling metal or mica nanoparticles. Besides choosing different colors of floor coatings, you may also choose different colored nanoparticles for a variety of special effects. Here are some of the possibilities:
- Sparkle— Mica and metallic particles are superb light reflectors. Increase or decrease the sparkle by altering the size and number of nanoparticles in the epoxy.
- Iridescence— Birds like 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 color as you walk through the room.
- Pearlescence— Akin to iridescence, pearlescence is more subdued with the color change effect, resembling the lustre 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, gathering nanoparticles in some areas and at the same time leaving fewer in others, our craftworkers create a sense of the 3rd dimension. Depth, motion, waves, currents, atmosphere and more are realized by an artfully designed and executed metallic floor.
- Gloss— While sparkle is like twinkling stars, gloss represents the reflection of light from a surface. Epoxy flooring is known for creating a quality shine, but metallic flooring takes it to a completely new level! Although much is dependent on the design, maximum shine is reachable with metallic flooring.
