What is a Metallic Epoxy Floor?
It is a multi-layered epoxy painting method that utilizes a metallic component blended with a transparent epoxy to produce eye-catching visual effects known as metallic epoxy. As the epoxy dries, the metallic powder moves through it, providing the lava flow or iridescent effect.

Metallic Flooring System Design
For metallic epoxy flooring, the quality of your final finish is largely dependent on the skills of the installer. Furthermore, the lighting in the space plays a huge role. Most metallic epoxy systems start with a black primer to provide maximum contrast with the floor's shiny finish. This is followed by suspended metallic pigments which have time to conform before being coated. Some of the benefits we offer here are that our epoxy is high quality and clear enough to see through, which allows for the perfect effect.
The metallic epoxy can be reshaped after being applied mechanically or chemically, changing its appearance. Additional colors are also readily available to create an even more amazing look to your floor. When a metallic epoxy coat is cured it can then be sanded and top-coated with a topcoat of your choice. Gloss or satin finishes are available for urethane topcoats, which are highly durable with better traction.

Here's how we do it!
Step 1: The Tools And Materials
Installing a metallic epoxy floor requires many tools to do it right. The three most difficult steps are surface preparation, mixing and application. One of the most important tools is a stand-up or handheld grinder with diamond tooling, the correct type of roller applicators, your metallic epoxy kit, spike shoes, mixing paddles, premium urethane topcoat as well as many other items. Some people use the wrong cleaning methods and just can't achieve the necessary concrete surface profile required for metallic epoxy application. The best way to do so is by grinder or media blasting the surface. If you aren’t going to do that, just use concrete paint, because the epoxy resin won't be able to bond with the concrete base properly unless it is ground down and porous.
Step 2: Choosing Metallic Pigments
To create an epoxy floor in 3 colors, for example black, red, and silver. Make sure to split the pigment evenly between the colors. For example, 50% of dark red pigment, 30% of dark silver pigment, and 20% black pigment. The metallic pigments or dyes are added to a high-quality, clear epoxy. Basically epoxy is a type of resin that can contain different metallic pigment colors. A floor could have up to 5, but we recommend using two or three. If you use too many, it will start to look too busy, and muddy the overall appearance.
Step 3: Concrete Surface Preparation - CSP
It's important to prepare the surface of the concrete before starting work. This is done by profiling the concrete, which makes it rougher so that paints and sealants can stick better. It also creates little 'abrasions” of sorts on the surface. By profiling the surface of the concrete, you are creating tiny ridges that allow the epoxy to grip onto it better.
For epoxy to adhere properly and create a suitably strong bond, the concrete surface should have a CSP of at least 2. If it is too worn, imperfect or damp then it should be recoated before any more procedures are attempted. If you need a CSP 2, the surface can be ground with a 16-grit diamond tooling. If you need a CSP 3, use a shot blasting machine. Once the surface is vacuumed it is ready for an epoxy coat. Ensure you have removed all visible dust before proceeding with the coating procedure.
A thorough grinding and vacuuming of the concrete slab will make the end result much better. It can be really hard to clean the floor so that it is 100% debris free. There's dirt and dust sticking to the floor from simply air movement throughout the room. The EZ Roller is an 18-inch roller with perforated sheets that are sticky like lint rollers. It is designed for cleaning smaller particles - even those unseen, and can help when properly preparing the surface.
Step 4: Installing A Concrete Moisture Barrier
Manufacturers usually recommend coating new epoxy floors with a layer of moisture/vapor resistant barrier. The moisture barrier acts as your primer (1st coat.) Epoxy coatings are not breathable, meaning any moisture that gets through can cause them to fail. A key sign of this is bubbles or peeling. Moisture barriers are rated based on how much hydrostatic pressure they can withstand. Most of these are generally around eight to ten-pounds of hydrostatic pressure, while others can withstand up to 25 pounds. If you have any doubts or concerns about moisture in the concrete, it's important to conduct readings in different areas. Otherwise, all your work will be for nothing.
Always use the ratio that the manufacturer has preset to mechanically mix resin with hardener. If you're using a 2:1 ratio, then you'll need 2 parts of A to 1 part of B. Mix the ingredients for two-three minutes, being careful to avoid bringing air from outside into the mixture. Proper mixing can help you avoid getting bubbles trapped in the bucket and ending up on the floor. Once you have your resin and hardener mixed, quickly apply the mix onto the floor in thin ribbons. The material must be applied systematically with a crew before it starts to set up & become unworkable.
When it comes to applying an epoxy moisture barrier, you should always wear spiked shoes and use a mohair roller. To make sure the moisture barrier/primer is evenly applied, you should back roll the surface. This is the solid color base coat, which means it’s not really important to apply it perfectly. You just need to make sure you cover the moisture barrier in an even layer at the manufacturer’s recommended thickness (mil).
Step 5: Cleaning up
Once the moisture barrier has dried, use a microfiber mop and acetone to clean all dust off the floor. The floor must be well-cleaned & prepped in order to avoid unsightly "comets" when the metallic epoxy is applied.
Step 6: Mixing Metallic Epoxy
To make your metallic epoxy coating look nice, you need to mix two parts epoxy resin with the appropriate pigment. Before you start metallic flooring project, make sure you have enough metal pigment for the amount of color you want in the finished product. You’ll need multiple mixing containers, and have them pre-mixed and ready to pour.
The best way to achieve great blending of the pigments is to mix them into part A thoroughly before adding part B. A dust mask should be worn when working with metallic pigment because the small particles can enter to the lungs.
Combine the two parts of the metallic epoxy and mix them for 2-3 minutes. Be sure to strain the mixture with a strainer to make sure there are no clumps or debris before pouring it.
Step 7: Application of Metallic Epoxy
As stated, the metallic coat should be poured out in small ribbons. Quickly empty the contents of the bucket. Do not tip it over on the floor. A and B can mix and harden in their container. Sometimes part A or B can stick the sides of the bucket, and cause soft, uncured spots - best to just empty the bucket and set it aside rather than turn it over on the floor.
Put spiked shoes back on and using a Magic Trowel or a foam roller, spread the material around evenly. A notched squeegee can help with making sure you’re applying at the correct mil.
Adding different colors to the already-layered metallic epoxy can be a great way to accentuate certain areas. You can also try different techniques like “figure eights” or “river flows” to manipulate the overall appearance. The working time for metallic epoxy can be 25-60 minutes. Avoid overworking the epoxy, because it may start curing.
Step 8: Applying a Protective Top Coat
Generally, the experts refer to this as the money step. It is a very important stage of the metallic epoxy color application process. Consideration should be made for whether or not to install a protective coat that has a gloss finish or a satin finish. Protective coatings can have somewhat of an “orange peel” texture, but offer the maximum protection for your floors. If you live in an area where traffic is heavy or sun exposure is high, it's recommended that you use a polyaspartic or urethane sealer. Polyaspartic top coating is great for protecting your epoxy from UV exposure. It also provides some additional scratch protection for the resin, because this hybrid coating offers exceptional scratch protection. However, no coatings can offer 100% protection against scratching & scuffing over time.
