How To Install Metallic Epoxy Floors
Metallic epoxy floor coatings are a hot new trend that is slowly finding its way into the home as a very high tech and exotic looking garage flooring option. These coatings create a glossy and deep looking floor with a variety of different colors and visual effects. Some even create a beautiful three-dimensional appearance that gives the illusion of craters, ripples, and swirling rivers of metallic looking plasma. So let’s take a closer look at this relatively new coating and see if a metallic epoxy garage floor is an option for you.
Epoxy floors are a flooring surface that is made up of multiple layers of epoxy. Epoxy floors do not only look glossy and seamless, but also are strong and resilient, perfect for room and garages.
Made of 100% solids epoxy with metallic pigments added, this self-leveling epoxy coating is designed to be manipulated to create the different visual effects. Once applied to the floor, various solvents such as denatured alcohol can be applied to diffuse and move around the metallic pigments in the epoxy. This is what can create the look of flowing rivers and spots of fractured looking molten metal that sits upon the surface of the coating.’
