Metallic Epoxy Flooring
If you are wanting that WOW factor for your commercial project in Brisbane, then don’t settle with just any flooring. You want a genuinely extraordinary surface. You want floors that could pass as works of art themselves. If this sounds like you, then metallic epoxy coatings are a perfect choice! That’s because metallic epoxy has a ton of customizable options. There are tons of colours to choose from, and it has a unique three-dimensional look. In fact, no two metallic epoxy-coated floors look the same due to the installation process. At My Floor, we excel at installing metallic epoxy coatings in Brisbane and Gold Coast. Let’s take a peek at what metallic epoxy flooring is and where they work best!
What is a Metallic Epoxy Coating?
You may already know that epoxy is a combination of resin and hardening agents. You might not know that there are tons of variations of epoxy coatings. They are heavy-duty industrial grade coatings, anti-microbial coatings, and decorative coatings. Metallic epoxy would qualify as a decorative coating. While the main appeal is visual, metallic epoxy is rock-solid and chemically resistant. For this reason, it has applications in residential, commercial, and industrial areas.
A metallic epoxy coating is a seamless, multi-layered epoxy system. It uses metallic powder and thousands of tiny, glitter-esque pigments. These pigments and powders get mixed into a clear epoxy resin. When we pour the coating onto the floor, the colors and dyes become agitated. The pigments twist, turn, separate, and combine to reflect light. As it hardens, it forms gorgeous three-dimensional patterns. These can be waves, swirls, and ripples. You can select any of these designs based on your preference.
Also, you get unique choices of color, depth, and texture. As a result, options for customizing your metallic floor are genuinely endless. That’s why metallic coatings have become so trendy in ritzy areas that are looking for glamor.
There are many applications for these decorative concrete coatings in Brisbane and Gold Coast. If you run an expensive restaurant, art gallery, or showroom, metallic epoxy is a great choice. Trendy spots for metallic epoxy floors include:
Bars, and night clubs. The options for colour, texture, and design make metallic epoxy all the rage in night clubs. Also, the reflective glass-like surface adds to the dance atmosphere. It’s like the floor is a disco ball!
- Retail businesses. Metallic epoxy coatings can make your retail business shine, literally! Not only will it showcase your merchandise, but it can handle all the foot traffic. Metallic epoxy coatings are incredibly durable and chemically resistant. Also, you can add a non-slip additive to make your floors extra safe for customers.
- Residential homes. Metallic epoxy is slowly taking over the housing market in Brisbane and Gold Coast. That’s because the options are truly endless. Do you want to feel like you’re walking on puffy clouds? No problem. Would you instead want to feel like you’re in outer space? We can do that, too! With metallic epoxy coatings, your imagination is the only limit!
Epoxy flooring offers a ton of cost-saving benefits in the long run. They include but are not limited to:
- Superior durability. Metallic epoxy coatings can take abuse from high temperatures, chemicals, traffic, and more. You can also add anti-microbial additives to make them resistant to bacteria.
- Quick turnaround time. Do you not have time to install polished concrete or traditional epoxy flooring? Then you’re sure to love metallic epoxy since it’s so quick to install. In fact, our professionals at My Floor can install your metallic epoxy in just 2 to 3 days for smaller projects! That means your business doesn’t need to shut down for very long. Also, we can work during off-hours and downtimes.

Do you want three-dimensional ripples that resemble a lava lamp? Or maybe you’d like green floors that are completely seamless? It’s all up to you!
As previously mentioned, the installation process is quicker than other flooring options. Our experienced technicians at My Floor can tackle the installation in 2 to 3 days. Here’s a very brief breakdown of the process:
Step #1. Firstly, the most important step of all is to prepare the surface by grinding the concrete, then repairing any crack or holes in the surface.
Step #2. We use a drill mixer to combine the metallic powder and pigments with clear epoxy resin. From there, we pour the combined coatings out onto the floor.
Step #3. Using a squeegee, we spread the coatings across the entire surface. Our installers make sure the coating covers every inch of the floor, so there are no gaps or cracks.
Step #4. At this stage, we add any accent colors in and mix them with a roller. We also add any decorative patterns or ripples to the surface at this time. The depth of color and design all depends on customer preference.
Step #5. To ensure protection from heavy traffic and chemicals/liquids, we use a final top coating. This step is also where we can add slip-resistant agents and anti-microbial additives.
As you can see, the installation process is relatively quick and easy. If you’re after metallic epoxy coatings in Brisbane or Gold Coast, you need to use My Floor! We excel at installing gorgeous metallic epoxy concrete coatings. Please don’t wait to try us out today!

The average lifespan of a metallic epoxy floor is roughly 30 years. With proper maintenance and low traffic, your floors can last even longer. With heavy traffic and abrasion, you can expect about 20 years out of your surfaces. Only the top coat coating needs to be re applied every 2-6 years to keep your floor maintained. There’s no need to scrap your foundation to start over completely.
The short answer is yes, but it goes deeper than that. All polished and coated surfaces tend to get slippery when wet. We mitigate this by applying a no-slip agent during the final step of the installation. That will ensure that your metallic epoxy floors never get too slippery for safe use.
Absolutely! In fact, metallic epoxy coatings have risen in popularity in residential homes. They’re popular in kitchens, garages, living rooms, and garages. They look gorgeous, you can customize them to your hearts’ content, and they’re easy to clean. What’s not to love about that?
