What is metallic epoxy resin floor finish?
Metallic epoxy resin floor finishes are defined as low yellowing resins mixed with metallic shavings. To give you a better idea, glitter-sized metallic strips (shavings) are added into the epoxy resin and then applied to the floor or substrate. These shavings, when spread with a paintbrush or roller can be gathered, separated, and twisted to reflect light at various angles. Eventually, the resin sludge solidifies leaving the metallic shavings sandwiched in place and create a three-dimensional swirl effect. The method of application is what determines the finish of the floor and is an important part of the aesthetic that is desired.

Benefits of metallic epoxy resin floors
The major benefits of using metallic resins for your floors is they are very resilient and long-lasting. The compressive strength of metallic resin floor finishes is stronger than concrete. This means they’re able to withstand more pressure than tiles, concrete or vinyl without any damage.
They are also more practical under pressure, this makes them suitable for industrial and commercial complexes where heavy machinery like forklifts and a high number of human traffic is expected to pass over it. Resin floors contain a special membrane that prevents damage from moisture and water so water cannot weaken it, unlike vinyl which can eventually debond or crack when water penetrates it. You can also use your hard washing powder on the resin floor finish without fear because water is unable to penetrate meaning there will be little to no damage. You also do not have to fear to spill chemicals or substances on the floor because they will not cause any damage, these advantages spread onto the substrate the resin is placed upon because it is completely protected from hazardous elements.

Providing a continuous finish with no joints or welding required and slip resistance if necessary, resin floor finishes are highly beneficial. They are bonded to the substrate under high pressure and will not lift or peel like a vinyl floor. Resin floors are becoming more popular than traditional floors and the major reason for this is resin floor finishes can be applied to a variety of substrates including concrete and metal.
