Metallic Epoxy comprises of two key components, mainly a clear epoxy base and a metallic pigment powder (or mica nanoparticles). These components blended into a homogenous mix, and when applied, create a glossy and exotic-looking lava-flow or pearlescent effect.
Pour over the flooring, substrate, or solid surface, the metallic pigments move through the Epoxy as it cures and can be agitated with a paintbrush or roller to create effects such as swirls, ripples, craters or waves. When the Epoxy hardens, these pigments are locked in place, resulting in a beautiful, three-dimensional look.
Skill and installation techniques are critical to attaining the desired look and feel of the surface, and due to the fluid nature of the metallic pigment suspension, each metallic epoxy finish is unique.
