One of the hottest trends in decorative concrete floors are metallic coatings.
Metallic coatings are ideal for upscale commercial or residential applications to create a contemporary and stunning look. Because of their dazzling color effects, they are often used as focal points in high-end retail stores, lobby areas, hair salons, hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, and offices.
Metallic floor coatings are a very exotic-looking flooring option. Unlike with solid-color pigment or chips, no two metallic floors are alike.
These floors use a clear epoxy or polyaspartic base, and the translucent floors are colored by whatever affects are being used. These coatings create a glossy and deep-looking floor that can contain a variety of colors and visual effects. Some even have a beautiful three-dimensional appearance that gives the illusion of craters, ripples, fire and clouds.
As gorgeous and stunning as these floors look, the high-performance epoxy or polyurethane resin and a very high solids count make them extremely durable too. They are just as resistant to oil, salt, chemicals, acids, water and wear as any other high-performance epoxy floors.
Maintenance is easy, and the amount of light they reflect is outstanding due to the glossy nature of the surface. Like any other epoxy coating, they can be a little slippery when wet.
Metallic Coatings are for the areas that demand a "wow factor". Many colors and effects can be combined to create endless looks and patterns. These floors have a high shine and work perfectly in game rooms, garages, home gyms and businesses that want to make a statement.
