Metallic Color Chart

 

Metallic coatings are created from a metallic pigment that is blended with a variety of clear coating resin binders and depending on the application method pigment colors and primer color create a metallic like seamless surface each one with a one of a kind appearance.  Unlike acid stains and standard coloring methods the pigments in this metallic resin reflect light rather than absorbing it creating incredible depth and dimension.

There are two primary trade offs in color selection between light reflectivity and the ability to hide dirt and wear.

The first consideration in selecting a flooring color is expected abuse and cleaning schedule. If a floor is going to be exposed to heavy abuse and a dirty environment and/or lack regular cleaning, a darker colored floor will better hide dirt and disguise wear. If on the other hand a clean environment is desired, a lighter colored floor will show dirt better highlighting areas in need of cleaning.

The lighter the color the more light a resinous floor will reflect thus increasing the ambient light allowing for reduced lighting and/or a better lit area. A high gloss, light gray coating will roughly double the ambient light over an uncoated concrete floor. The downside is in general the lighter the floor the more apparent dirt and wear are on the surface. These effects are even greater on a white floor.
