What is Metallic Epoxy?

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.

Benefits of Metallic Epoxy

About Benefits of Metallic Epoxy Singapore

Stain-proof
Our Metallic Epoxy creates a stain-proof and waterproof layer of protection due to its non-porous properties. It protects against spills, leakages, and moisture, allowing for easy clean-up and protection from damage.

Highly Heat Resistant
Our Metallic Epoxy is highly heat resistant and withstands temperatures of up to 200°C, allowing safe and durable use in industrial and residential environments.

Highly Chemical Resistant

Metallic Epoxy is a chemically inert material after it sets, making it the preferred choice in industrial applications against potential chemical, oil, and acid spillages.

100% Seamless

Its seamless finishing eliminates the crevices and pores in normal grout finishing, where gathered dirt may result in the potential growth of bacteria and mold.

Non-Toxic Finishing

Metallic Epoxy Singapore products are certified non-toxic by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). It is VOC compliant, has no fumes, and no airborne particles allowing for easy installation indoors without the need of a respirator.

Highly Impact and Scratch Resistant

Extremely tough, durable, and engineered to last for decades, Metallic Epoxy Singapore finishings are resistant to impact and scratch from everyday wear and tear in industrial environments with heavy machinery and works. We bring the same durable and long-lasting finish for commercial and residential use.

Customizable 3D Design
From lava-flow or pearlescent designs to marble or wooden themed finishings, our Metallic Epoxy designs are highly customizable to your preferences.

HOW WE DO IT

Primer Process
Step 1: Sealant
(Only necessary for Flooring Application)
A sealant is used to bond the substrate towards the epoxy. It is also used to create an airtight and waterproof layer to prevent air and moisture rising from the substrate during the epoxy application.
self-levelling
Step 2: Self-Levelling Compound
Our self-levelling compound does exactly what it is named for: to help level, even out and flatten the installation surface area removing unsightly grout lines and uneven surfaces to allow proper agitation and crafting of the gorgeous metallic epoxy effects for your interior surfaces.
Metallic Epoxy Primer
Step 3: Metallic Epoxy Primer 
The base primer acts as a waterproof base coat, eliminating moisture, oil and dirt particles before the epoxy is applied. The strong bonding properties of the primer is crucial in allowing the epoxy resin to bind effectively. It also acts as a neutral base colour, overlaying the original surface to prevent discoloration in the final design.
Epoxy Flooring Process
Step 4: Metallic Epoxy Design
Applied over the primer as the next step of installation, the pigmented epoxy resin is where the magic happens; the colours, designs and effects are molded and shaped before it is left to harden and cure.

Step 5: Metallic Epoxy Top Coat
There are 5 main finishings to choose from:

  • Mirror – Permits the most vibrance and fidelity to colour of the design beneath, and is highly reflective. However, its scratch and impact resistance is the lowest of the three. (Only available for art panels)
  • Gloss – This clear finishing provides adequate protection against scratches and impact, while showcasing the colours and effects of the design well. The smooth surface allows for exceptionally easy cleaning and maintenance and it is recommended for most environments with low to medium traffic.
  • Gloss Anti-Slip – Similar to gloss, it provides more traction than mirror and gloss topcoats, but with a slightly grittier and rougher texture for more grip on wet surfaces.
  • Matte – Provides the best protection of all due to its thick and gritty characteristics. Recommended for environments with medium to high traffic for its robust and durable nature. (Only available for art panels and countertops)
  • Matte Anti-Slip – Provides the highest level of traction amongst all 5 topcoat selections. Highly recommended for areas with extremely high foot traffic or wet environment.
