What Creates the Sparkle?
Metallic epoxies combine durable glossy coats with pigmented undercoatings and sparkling metal or mica nanoparticles. In addition to choosing different colors of floor coat, you can also opt for different colored nanoparticles for a variety of special effects. Here are some of the choices:
- Iridescence— Birds like hummingbirds or peacocks have iridescent feathers. The colors of the feathers alter as either the bird moves in the light. When iridescence is added to epoxy coatings, the floor stunningly changes color as you pass through the room.
- Pearlescence— Similar to iridescence, pearlescence is more subdued with the color altering effect, resembling the luster of pearls, opals or abalone shells. This light effect reminds you of looking through prisms or the vibrance of a rainbow.
- Sparkle— Mica and metallic flakes are specifically known for this effect. By adjusting the number and size of nanoparticles, and their color, you decide upon the resulting level of sparkle.
- Depth— By artfully shaping the pigment layers, concentrating nanoparticles in some areas while leaving fewer in others, our craftworkers create a sense of a 3D. Depth, movement, waves, currents, atmosphere and more are suggested by an artfully designed and executed metallic floor.
- Gloss— Shine and gloss are tightly related terms. In effect, the level of gloss your floor has tells you approximately how much it shines. And shine represents the amount of light reflected from the surface. So, the glossier a surface, the more it shines.
