Bring the beauty of metallic paint to your concrete foundations with the added resilience and durability of epoxy coatings from West Coast Epoxy. Make floors with brilliant iridescence, pearlescence, shine, depth, metallic sparkle, and swirl. The boring concrete foundation in your lobby, showroom, home, hallway, or gym can appear like clouds, waves, swirling liquids, or the depths of the universe.
What Creates the Brilliance?
West Coast Epoxy creates your personalized metallic epoxy by combining colorful undercoats with specialized metal or mica nanoparticles. In addition to picking the colors of the epoxies, you also select the colors, sizes, and types of sparkling flakes. Applying these choices, here are the effects you can create:
- Sparkle — Metallic and mica particles are superb light reflectors. Decrease or increase the sparkle by altering the number and size of nanoparticles in the epoxy.
- Iridescence — Imagine the feathers of a hummingbird or peacock and you can imagine the effect of iridescence. When applied on epoxy coatings, the floor changes color, based on the light or viewpoint.
- Pearlescence — Similar to iridescence, pearlescence is more subtle in the color alteration effect, resembling the lustre of pearls, opals, or abalone shells. This light effect reminds you of looking through a prism or the vibrance of a rainbow.
- Gloss — Gloss and shine are tightly related terms. In effect, the intensity of gloss the floor has tells you approximately how much it will shine and shine describes the amount of light reflected from the surface. So, the glossier a surface, the more it will shine.
- Depth — By skillfully arranging the pigment layers, aggregating nanoparticles in some areas while leaving fewer in others, our craftworkers create a sense of 3-dimensionality. Depth, motion, waves, current, atmosphere and more are realized by an artfully designed and executed metallic floor.
