What Makes the Brilliance?
Metallic epoxies combine durable glossy topcoats with pigmented undercoats and sparkling metal or mica nanoparticles. In addition to selecting different colors of floor epoxies, you can also opt for a variety of colored nanoparticles for special effects. Here are some of the choices:
- Iridescence — Imagine the feathers of a hummingbird and you can visualize the effect of iridescence. When applied with epoxy coatings, the floor changes color, based on the light source or viewpoint.
- Pearlescence — Akin to iridescence, pearlescence is more subtle with the color altering effect, resembling the lustre of pearls, opals, or abalone shells. This light effect reminds you of looking through a prism or the vibrance of rainbows.
- Sparkle — Mica and metallic flakes are specifically known for this effect. By altering the number or size of nanoparticles, and their color, you decide upon the resulting sparkle.
- Gloss — While sparkle is like twinkling stars, gloss represents the reflection of light from a surface. Epoxy flooring is known for making a quality shine, but metallic flooring takes it to a whole new level! Although much depends on the design, maximum shine is possible with metallic flooring.
- Depth — By artfully adjusting the pigment layers, bunching nanoparticles in some areas and at the same time leaving fewer in others, our team members create a sense of 3-dimensionality. Depth, movement, waves, currents, atmosphere, and more are suggested by an artfully designed and executed metallic floor.
