Metallic epoxy is a special multi-layered epoxy floor coating system that incorporates the use of a metallic additives that are mixed into a clear epoxy coating to create exotic effects. This metallic powder continues to move through the epoxy as it cures creating the lava flow or marble pearlescent design. Because of this constant movement of the metallic pigment, even floors that use the same colors will never look the exactly the same, making each floor truly unique.

Here at UCoat It we offer three different types of metallic finish within our Metallon system.  These systems vary based on where you’ll be applying them, your budget, and the look you are trying to achieve:

Metallon 50 – A three coat, completely water based floor coating system that is excellent for basements, office areas and non-automotive traffic surfaces.

Metallon 100 – This is a three coat floor coating system that features two coats of a water based epoxy and a one component solvent based urethane that is budget friendly and great for garages, showrooms and light to medium traffic areas.

Metallon 500 – A three coat high build epoxy system that will provide the ultimate metallic finish with incredible depth of color.  Metallon 500 will provide excellent wear and is ideal for any non-exterior area.

All our metallic epoxy floor coating systems use the same commercial-grade products as our other systems and feature a lifetime warranty against peeling and blistering.

How Is Metallic Epoxy Applied?

Metallon 500 is a high-build metallic floor coating that will provide the ultimate metallic finish with incredible depth of color and the ability to use multiple different within the same floor. Once mixed properly with a drill mixer, this coating is poured out onto the floor and spread over the entire surface using a squeegee. Optional accent colors can then be poured onto the floor and gently mixed together with a roller. A final top coat is then added to ensure proper protection from high traffic and corrosive chemicals.

There are a few different techniques to apply our metallic floor coating systems depending on which system you choose.  Some applications are as simple as using a roller to apply, some require a squeegee to spread and roller to backroll.  To learn more about application view the links below:
