Metallic epoxy flooring has a “Wow!” factor unlike any other. The smooth, glossy finish and unique sparkle is sure to make your guest’s or client’s jaws drop. Metallic epoxy is a special multi-layered epoxy floor coating in which we add a special metallic powder to a low yellowing clear epoxy coating to create stunning effects. The tiny, glitter-like pigments are moved through the epoxy as it cures to create a unique design.
The installation technique is what determines the final look of the floor and is a critical to attaining the desired effect. When the metallic pigments are agitated with a paintbrush or roller, they twist, gather, and separate to catch the light in different ways. Solvents like denatured alcohol can be used to drag and disperse the pigments throughout the epoxy surface as it dries. A leaf blower may even be used for certain effects. We can also splotch and blend with several colors to create an even more original design.
Using various techniques, metallic epoxy flooring can be made to look like marble, lava lamps, liquid metal, colored glass, storm clouds, moon craters, or even lightning strikes. 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. At Elite Epoxy Floors, our experienced installers know how to get the look you want.
Metallic epoxy flooring isn’t just stunning, it has several other advantages as well. Like all epoxy floor coatings, it is extremely durable and easy to care for. It can be customized to be seamless, antimicrobial, slip resistant, and chemical resistant. Not only do these floors look beautiful, but they will meet all of your performance needs.
Metallic epoxy flooring can be used in both residential and commercial settings. In commercial spaces, you may find this flooring in salons, hotel lobbies, retail stores, restaurants, hotels and offices. In residential homes, it is ideal in kitchens, bathrooms, and basements.
