What Makes the Brilliance?
Metallic epoxies combine durable glossy coatings with colored undercoatings and sparkling mica or metal nanoparticles. In addition to choosing different colors of base epoxies, you may also decide upon different colored nanoparticles for a variety of special effects. Here are some of the choices:
- Sparkle— Mica and metallic particles are remarkable light reflectors. Decrease or increase the amount of sparkle by altering the size or number of nanoparticles in the epoxy.
- Iridescence— Birds like hummingbirds or peacocks have iridescent feathers. The colors of the feathers alter as either the bird or you move in the light. When iridescence is applied to epoxy coatings, it is the floor that changes color as you walk through the room.
- Pearlescence— Akin to iridescence, pearlescence is more subdued with the color alteration effect, resembling the luster of pearls, abalones or opals. This optical effect reminds you of looking through a prism or the vibrance of rainbows.
- Depth— By artfully adjusting the pigment layers, collecting nanoparticles in some areas and at the same time leaving fewer in others, our team members create a sense of the 3rd dimension. Depth, motion, waves, currents, clouds and more are suggested by an artfully designed and executed metallic floor.
- Gloss— While sparkle is like twinkling stars, gloss defines the reflection of light from surfaces. Epoxy flooring is known for providing a quality shine, but metallic flooring takes it to a completely new level! Although much depends on the design, maximum shine is possible with metallic floors.
