This modern concept of flooring is a joint-less decorative floor created from applying a solid epoxy metallic base coat, and a solid top coat in either the same metallic or a different metallic color. An epoxy is created from combining a resin and a hardener, mixed together to create a strong, rigid material. The addition of metallic powder creates the unique one-of-a-kind effect, providing a metallic flooring with a deep color and a high-gloss with varying visual effects.
No two metallic floor coatings are the same with visual effects that can mirror a three-dimensional look giving the illusion of ripples, swirls, craters and plasma all with a metallic shine. You can choose to use the same solid color for both the base coat and metallic resin, or you can create a two-tone effect by using two different solid colors. The glossy shine is beautiful in many applications in both commercial and residential spaces.
Metallic epoxy flooring costs a bit more than our regular epoxy coatings because of two things
1) the metallic finish requires multiple coats usually requiring 4 or more coats.
2) it takes more time and ability to create the unique design that metallics will create.
You may pay a little more, but the long-lasting durability and elegant look can go a long way to attract and retain customers in certain applications.
In addition to residential spaces metallic epoxy floor coating is also ideal in commercial settings such as automotive showrooms, offices, hotel rooms and lobbies and retail establishments that are cleaned regularly Metallic flooring is also dazzling in garages and basements, although residential customers should be prepared to keep their floor clean for maximum effect.
Metallic floors gives a choice of huge decorative color spectrum by combining different RAL range colors to create the blend of your choice
A metallic epoxy floor coating can be applied with a roller or squeegee to the floor or can be poured from a bucket or water spout. A primer coat is required, and an optional UV resistant urethane may be included if an interior room is exposed to sunlight which can turn the finish yellow in light colors. Using a darker color when exposed to sunlight will help to avoid a yellow tarnished look after years of exposure.
Special effects can be achieved with metallic floor coatings by using various application methods and manipulating the top coat. With proper application, your metallic epoxy floor will provide long-lasting, durable beauty. You will enjoy your dream floor for many years to come.
