Metallic floor coatings are a very exotic-looking flooring option that simply can’t be duplicated by even the most intricate of stone or marble designs. Unlike with solid-color pigment or chips, no two metallic floors are alike, their appearances are completely dependant upon the artisan’s abilities and design ideas. These floors utilize a clear 100% solids epoxy or water-based epoxy, and the translucent floors are colored by Dura-Kote Metallic Pearls. 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, and swirling rivers of metallic-looking plasma. 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.
The finished look is a smooth, glass like finish that has a unique and subtle reflective sparkle. There are endless creative techniques that can be used to create a style that you can call your own. One of the more interesting things about Dura-Kote Epoxy Metallics is it’s ability to be applied without a large degree of professional training. The floor designs that show through with Epoxy Metallics lend themselves to more random application patterns than typical decorative concrete flooring systems. That being the case, it can be applied by both skilled artisans and DIY homeowners alike with relative ease.
