Yes! West Coast Epoxy is a metallic flooring specialist eager to add luxury to your concrete flooring!
What Creates the Sparkle?
Metallic epoxies combine durable glossy topcoats with pigmented undercoatings and sparkling mica or metal nanoparticles. In addition to selecting different colors of base coatings, you can also choose different colored nanoparticles for a variety of special effects. Here are some of the choices:
- Sparkle — Mica and metallic flakes are specially known for this effect. By adjusting the size or number of nanoparticles, and their color, you opt for the resulting sparkling.
- Iridescence — Birds like peacocks or hummingbirds have iridescent feathers. The hues of the feathers shift as either you or the bird moves in the light. When iridescence is added to epoxy coatings, it is the floor that changes hues as you stroll through the room.
- Pearlescence — Similar to iridescence, pearlescence is more subdued in the color alteration effect, resembling the luster of abalone or pearls. This light effect reminds you of looking through prisms or the vibrance of rainbows.
- Depth — By skillfully adjusting the pigment layers, aggregating nanoparticles in some areas and at the same time leaving fewer in others, our craftworkers create a sense of the 3rd dimension. Depth, movement, waves, current, atmosphere and more are realized by an artfully designed and executed metallic floor.
- Gloss — While sparkle is like star twinkle, gloss is the reflection of light from a surface. Epoxy flooring is known for creating a quality shine, but metallic flooring takes it to a completely new level! Although much is dependent on the design, maximal shine is reachable with metallic floors.
