Metallic epoxy flooring is as durable and easy to care for as it is beautiful. Essentially, it is composed of mica pigments added to clear epoxy, as opposed to pigmented epoxy. The pigments are designed to be dispersed in a variety of binders to produce a unique three-dimensional appearance with the color or colors showing through.
One amazing benefit of having a metallic epoxy flooring system installed is the sheer amount and variety of customization available to make your floor truly unique. Elite Epoxy offers a selection of base colors, and we can use multi-colored or single colored flakes or metallic pigments to create a stunning and original floor. There are even options for the store owner and extreme enthusiast! We can place your store’s emblem or your favorite brand’s logo directly into the flooring system itself, so you can promote your brand or show how proud you are of your favorite team or car manufacturer.
The key to a mesmerizing metallic floor is the artist behind it. Unlike a solid or chip system, metallic epoxy flooring produces floors that are one of a kind. Installers each have their own techniques for applying metallics. No two rooms with metallic epoxy flooring are the same because even using the same technique, the particular ways the pigments move and catch the light will be different every time. The installers at Elite Epoxy have the skills and experience to give you the beautiful and unique floor you want in your home or business.
Epoxy floors are one of the most durable systems on the market when high-quality materials are installed by experienced professionals. You can’t get the same durability from DIY products available in home improvement stores. It can handle impact from a variety of objects, the use of heavy machinery, and will even resist the effects of heavy foot and vehicle traffic for as long as twenty years.
Because of their high-gloss finish, however, metallic epoxy flooring is more susceptible to scratches. For retail and residential interior jobs, metallic floors can be protected by applying four layers of wax. This way scratches will be embedded in the wax and not the floor, and can be recoated relatively easily. Whenever the floor is stripped and rewaxed, it will look brand new again. For exterior residential jobs, such as garages, polyurethane can be used. It offers the best scratch and UV protection for metallic coatings.
Metallic epoxy can be used in both residential and commercial settings. In commercial spaces, you could find this flooring in salons, hotel lobbies, retail stores, restaurants, hotels and offices. In residential homes, you could find metallic epoxy flooring in living rooms, kitchens, basements, and garages.
