Metallic epoxy flooring coatings are similar to traditional high-performance resinous systems made to resemble a marble floor. In other words, tiny, almost glitter-like pigments are mixed into an epoxy resin and then poured onto the floor or substrate. When these pigments become agitated with a paintbrush or roller, they gather, separate, twist and turn to reflect light at different angles. Eventually, the epoxy hardens and the metallic pigments are locked into place and give a three dimensional, swirly look. The installation technique is what determines the final look of the floor and is a critical part in attaining the desired look.

Then, a squeegee or roller is used to apply the coating. An optional UV resistant or 100 percent solids epoxy may be added. The mixture is created for a particular floor. A unique flooring solution with a glassy finish that is noticeably smooth is the result.
