What is Metallic Epoxy Flooring?
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.
What are the Advantages of a Metallic Epoxy Floor?
These coatings are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also have many other advantages. Metallic epoxy floor coatings can be customized to be extremely durable, low yellowing, seamless, antimicrobial, slip resistant, and chemical resistant. Not only will these floors look beautiful, but they will meet all of your performance needs. They are great for places like waiting rooms, show rooms, restaurants, galleries and more.
Is It Used in Commercial or Residential Settings?
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 or basements.
