What Creates the Brilliance?
Metallic epoxies combine durable gloss coats with colorful undercoatings and sparkling metal or mica nanoparticles. In addition to choosing different colors of base coatings, you may also decide upon different colored nanoparticles for a variety of special effects. Here are some of the options:
- 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 light source or viewpoint.
- Pearlescence— This effect is akin to that of iridescence but focuses on matching the subtle colors made by pearls or opal. It reminds you of a rainbow or the colorful light from a prism.
- Sparkle— Mica and metallic particles are outstanding light reflectors. Increase or decrease the amount of sparkle by adjusting the number or size of nanoparticles in the epoxy.
- Depth— By skillfully adjusting the pigment layers, collecting nanoparticles in some areas and leaving fewer in others, our craftworkers create a sense of 3D. Depth, movement, waves, currents, clouds and more are realized by an artfully designed and executed metallic floor.
- Gloss— While sparkle is like the twinkling of stars, gloss stands for the reflection of light from a surface. 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, maximal shine is possible with metallic flooring.
