What is Metallic Epoxy?
Metallic epoxy uses a metallic additive mixed into a clear epoxy coating to create artistic designs.
The first step after prepping the floor is applying a colored epoxy base coat for your metallic epoxy floor. After it’s done curing, the next step is to add different colored metallic pigments or powders. Various techniques are used to create a 3D look with the illusion of water ripples and craters. Because epoxy is free-flowing, it’s easier to work with.
Later on, the final touches can be added over the base coat. These include drizzling different metallic pigments and tweaking the designs. The metallic particles continue to shift or move as the epoxy cures—this gives it a flowy, lava-like design. This also ensures that no design is repeated; each floor truly looks one of a kind.
Once applied, the concrete surface reacts to the pull of gravity. This allows the metallic epoxy to display its effects. It’s particularly popular among our clients since it allows them to choose from a wide array of designs. Here are some of the popular ones:
· Designs resembling quartz flakes or chips with glitters
· Multi-colored effects that give the look of polished marble
· 3D swirls or ripples
· Designs that resemble galaxies.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, slip and fall accidents account for the majority of general industry accidents.
This makes epoxy floors ideal for areas that see more foot traffic, where the chances of people getting injured are significantly higher.
Easier to Clean
Because metallic epoxy flooring has a seamless finish, it’s easier to clean spills from. This saves time while cleaning the surface.
Strong and Durable
Another factor that makes metallic epoxy more appealing is that it’s extremely durable. It has layers upon layers of epoxy that harden over time. This makes it extremely difficult to scratch or crack,which ultimately adds to the floor’s lifespan.
