One of the favorite styles of paint jobs for show cars is sparkling metallic. These dazzling paint schemes add a luster and depth that grabs the attention and holds it with the beautiful changes in color that result from iridescent and pearlescent effects, or the fascinating sparkle made by thousands of tiny metal particles. If you ever wondered what it would be like to have a floor with a metallic coating that matches these spectacular paint jobs, now you have your chance! West Coast Epoxy is a metallic flooring specialist eager to add a splash of brilliance to your concrete floors!
What Creates the Sparkle?
Metallic epoxies combine the durability of two-part coatings with colored pigments and sparkling mica nanoparticles. Besides choosing different types of base color, you can also select different colored micas for a variety of special effects. Here are just some of the options:
- Iridescence — the floor seems to change color, based on the light or point-of-view. Imagine the feathers of a peacock or a hummingbird and you can recognize the effect of iridescence.
- Pearlescence — similar to iridescence, pearlescence is more subdued in the color change effect, resembling the luster of pearls or abalone shells. This optical effect reminds you of looking through a prism or the vibrance of a rainbow.
- Sparkle — Metallic pigments are excellent light reflectors. Careful lighting design highlights the finish and creates a dazzling room!
- Depth — By skillfully shaping the pigment layers, aggregating nanoparticles in some areas while leaving fewer in others, our craftworkers create a sense of 3-dimensionality. Depth, motion, waves, currents, clouds and more are suggested by an artfully designed and executed metallic floor.
- Shine — While sparkle is like the twinkling of stars, shine is the reflection of light from a surface. Epoxy flooring is already known for creating a quality shine, but metallic flooring takes it to a whole new level! Although much depends on the design, maximum shine is attainable with metallic flooring.
