Bring the beauty of metallic paint to your concrete floors with the added resilience and longevity of epoxy coatings from West Coast Epoxy. Create floors with eye-catching shine, pearlescence, iridescence, swirl, depth, and metallic sparkle. The plain concrete foundation in your home, lobby, showroom, gym, or hallway can look like clouds, waves, swirling currents, or the depths of deep space.
What Creates the Sparkle?
Metallic epoxies combine durable gloss top coats with pigmented undercoats and sparkling mica or metal nanoparticles. In addition to choosing different colors of floor coatings, you may also choose different colored nanoparticles for a variety of special effects. Here are some of the possibilities:
- Iridescence — Imagine the feathers of a hummingbird and you can visualize the effect of iridescence. When applied on epoxy coatings, the floor changes color, based on the source of light or viewpoint.
- Pearlescence — Similar to iridescence, pearlescence is more subtle with the color altering effect, resembling the lustre of pearls or opal. This light effect reminds you of looking through prisms or the vibrance of rainbows.
- Sparkle — Metallic and mica particles are remarkable light reflectors. Increase or decrease the amount of sparkle by altering the number or size of nanoparticles in the epoxy.
- Gloss — Shine and gloss are tightly related words. In effect, the intensity of gloss the floor has tells you exactly how much it will shine, and shine describes the amount of light reflected from a surface. Therefore, the glossier a surface, the more it shines.
- Depth — By skillfully adjusting the pigment layers, aggregating nanoparticles in some areas as well as leaving fewer in others, our team members create a sense of three-dimensionality. Depth, movement, waves, currents, clouds, and more are realized by an artfully designed and executed metallic floor.
