Metallic pigments create a beautiful, marblized look that is completely customizable.
What are metallic pigments? Metallic pigments are special effect pigments composed of crushed mica particles coated with various organic and inorganic pigments used to create pearlescent and iridescent effects that mimic the natural look of stone and other minerals. These unique pigments are designed to be blended with 100% solids clear epoxy binders. When the metallic particles are mixed with epoxy they give the coating a shine that reflects light and creates and eye-catching dramatic color. The shimmering play of light and color created by the pearlescent effects with metallic pigments combined with durability of resinous epoxy create contemporary and edgy pearlescent effects. Optimally enhancing the aesthetic and ergonomic qualities of your surface to withstand the most challenging environments.
At Armortech, we use metallic pigments in many of our epoxy projects. Metallic pigments are used in the application of our metallic epoxy flooring systems as well as in our hand-poured epoxy countertop projects. They are also employed in creating our matching epoxy backsplashes, shower surrounds, wall art, and in the creation of our one-of-a-kind bar tops, and our custom table tops.
