Metallic Epoxy Floors for Businesses

Posted by Jeremy Gillespie on Jun 21, 2017 9:48:00 AM

Looking for a unique way to impress customers and make your business’s physical space stand out? A metallic epoxy floor coating will transform a boring concrete slab into an attention-grabbing work of art.

Offering all the practical features of regular epoxy flooring (such as high durability and longevity), these specialty coatings use pigments and other additives to create a number of visual effects, including:

  • A satiny, metallic shimmer
  • Glitter or reflective quartz-like flakes
  • Two-toned swirls or ripples for a 3D water effect
  • Subtle, multi-color tones that look like polished marble
  • Bold patterns that look like galaxies or moon craters

Colorful, high-contrast designs can dress up a science center or art gallery, while a subtle shimmer can add elegance to a high-end car dealerships, salon, or premium retail center. No matter what pattern is created, the floor still maintains a smooth, high-gloss surface.
