Bring the beauty of metallic paint to your concrete floors with the added resilience and toughness of epoxy coatings from West Coast Epoxy. Make floors with brilliant shine, iridescence, pearlescence, swirl, metallic sparkle, and depth. The standard concrete foundation in your showroom, home, lobby, hallway or gym can look like clouds, waves, currents, or the depths of space.
What Makes the Sparkle?
Metallic epoxies combine durable glossy topcoats with pigmented undercoats and sparkling mica or metal nanoparticles. In addition to selecting different colors of base coats, you can also opt for different colored nanoparticles for a variety of special effects. Here are some of the choices:
- Iridescence— Visualize the feathers of a hummingbird or a peacock and you can imagine the effect of iridescence. When applied with epoxy coatings, the floor changes color, based on the light source or viewpoint.
- Pearlescence— Similar to iridescence, pearlescence is more subdued with the color alteration effect, resembling the luster of a pearl or opals. This optical effect reminds you of looking through a prism or the vibrance of a rainbow.
- Sparkle— Mica and metallic particles are superior light reflectors. Decrease or increase the sparkle by altering the size or number of nanoparticles in the epoxy.
- Gloss— Although sparkle is like star twinkle, gloss is the reflection of light from surfaces. 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, maximal shine is attainable with metallic flooring.
- Depth— Depending on the arrangement of the epoxy layers, and by aggregating the metal or mica flakes accordingly, your floor can come to life with 3D! The optical illusions of depth, clouds, movement, waves, current, and more are suggested with the properly designed use of metallic epoxies.
