Metallix - Mutiple Color Combination ExamplesWhat is Metallix -100% Solids Pearlescent Metallic Epoxy Floor Coating?

Metallix floor coating is a 100% solids, two component epoxy. It is a special formulated epoxy with a metallic pigment. It is roller or squeegee applied to your floor. The finished look is a smooth, glass like finish that has a unique and subtle sparkle. No two floors will ever look the same. There are endless creative techniques that can be used to create a style that you can call your own.

In these four examples to the left; you can choose from any of our 21 Metallix effects colors. You can create numerous type of color combinations as listed below:

Two-Tone Effect
a two-tone metallic effect which is the basecoat color plus a single Metallix effect color on top.

Same Color Effect
A same color effect can be achieved by using the same color Metallix basecoat and Metallix effect.

Two Color Effect
Two color effects are achieved by using a Metallix basecoat with two different metallix effects colors on top.

We limit the maximum number or Metallix effects colors in our store to three. We've tested that any more than three colors become too busy and muddy. We recommend only using two colors but if you would like a third, it is available. More info at out www.puremetallic.com website.

Metallix is made from 100% Solids Epoxy, which is considered the industry-standard for Commercial Epoxy Flooring and not normally installed by homeowners. This type of epoxy, though very durable, can be difficult for inexperienced applicators.   Please read the tutorials and watch the videos to prior to ordering and or installing, if you do not feel you can apply this unique coating then we recommend seeking out a local contractor to install it.

The final step is to apply the clear coat. You have the option of using the WBU-520 Urethane Clearcoat (perfect for interiors where harmful odor cannot be present) Or you can upgrade to the HPU 747 VOC Solventborne Urethane clear top coat (perfect for garages or areas of good ventilation).

After applying your basecoat epoxy and color chips (comes with a medium coverage of chips), allow that to cure overnight. The final step is to apply the clearcoating.

After applying your basecoat epoxy and color chips (comes with a medium coverage of chips), allow that to cure overnight. The final step is the solvent-borne UV resistant urethane clear top coat. This coating will give you better chemical resistance and complete uv protection. The HPU 747 VOC Urethane Clearcoat emits hazardous vapors while curing and should only be used in well ventilated areas. Please keep windows and door partially open while drying. Turn off all ignitable devices such as hot water tanks in your garage while applying.

Original Color Chips System System 4 (garages/warehouses)

System 4 is our most popular system that we recommend for garages and warehouses.

Etch the concrete with an acid wash or floor grinder (to open up the pores of the concrete). After you successfully sweep and vacuum up the debris, apply the preprime 167 sealer in a thin coat to soak deep into the substrate, wait until dry and apply the 224V basecoat epoxy, sprinkle chips on top of the wet epoxy. Wait overnight to apply your urethane clearcoat.

In the end, you’ll have a coat that seals off the floor and gets a good bite to the concrete, a coat that offers a high build color coat, and a chemical resistant / uv resistant layer as your finish coat.

Note: The etch n’ clean is not included in this kit. Most users of this kit grind the concrete with a concrete floor grinder or use Muriatic Acid. (muriatic acid instructions)

What Makes The Original Color Chips Different From The Epoxy Kits In Home Depot & Lowes?
 
We offer endless custom options, provide you with the tools and knowledge necessary to get the best and longest lasting floor on the market today.
 
Here at the Original Color Chips, we stand by a few general rules to ensure you you achieve the best results:
 
Rule 1:
Concrete preparation is the key and most important aspect of the process. You must chemically or mechanically profile your concrete to ensure sufficient adhesion of the epoxy.
 
The epoxy kits you have seen in Home Depot & Lowes state that they are "no prep epoxy kits". This statement is not completely false but if you want to avoid epoxy peel-ups and extend the life of you epoxy coating, concrete preparation is a must.
 
There are two forms of concrete preparation:
1. Etch n' Clean (Acid Wash):
 
Use Etch n' Clean (Included in all of our kits) to open the pores of the substrate as well as remove oil and other unwanted contaminants. This ensures maximum adhesion, resulting in a sandpaper like finish.

2. Mechanical Grinder:
 
The ideal method for concrete preparation whether it's bare, new or previously coated concrete, would be to use a floor grinder. If you're coating concrete that has been sealed with a sealer, it is necessary to use a floor grinder to prepare the concrete. Using the floor grinder will open up the pores of the concrete to allow the epoxy to sink in, therefore achieving maximum adhesion.
Rule 2:
 
The second most important part of the process is using a primer coat. The epoxy kits you have seen in your favorite "Big Box" store do not offer this option. Priming the substrate will not only allow give you a higher build and uniform sheen but it will assist in adhesion, giving your floor more longevity. The primer coat is designed to sink deep into the concrete substrate and acts as a glue coat between the concrete and epoxy basecoat. Essentially, this process has the same concept of priming your walls of your home before you apply your colored wall paint. 
 
We do offer similar chain store kits ("Classic") for customers that are staying within a certain budget but we highly recommend using our full ("Deluxe") kit systems.
 
Rule 3:
 
Applying a clear topcoat is a great sealer for your epoxy floor system. It protects your color chips from coming loose from the epoxy or discoloring from contaminants or sunlight. The clearcoat is also easy to clean and provides a high-gloss sheen and depth that will improve the look and life of your floor. Your average store kit does not include a clear protective topcoat. In our experience over the years, customers that did not apply a clear topcoat, wanted to redo their floors within as little as six months because of the aforementioned elements.

I recently ordered your product and I'm happy to report that I could not be more pleased with it. Part of my garage makeover project was a better looking garage floor and your product did exactly what it was advertised to do. My friends and neighbors are begging me to do theirs now! I've attached a couple of pics of my garage project that show my new floor. Thanks for a wonderful product and for all of the great customer service that I received before during and after I placed my order. Everyone on your staff were very easy to talk to and very eager to help.

It may not be the case nation-wide but customer service is alive and kicking in Warren, Michigan!

Hey folks, just put the finishing touches on my garage and thought you might like the results as much as I do! You have basically turned our garage into beautiful living space with the extraordinary help of the color chips system! We spend a lot of time in the front yard keeping an eye on the kids and we love to get together with friends and family, and your floor covering has made our garage a low-maintenance, spill proof, outdoor entertaining, kid friendly, "dad so proud of", outdoor living room! Thanks so much! Your product was just as described with no questions to ask! Thanks for offering such an awesome product!!!!

Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful website. I did a lot of research before I painted my garage floor and was really worried that I would not be able to do it myself. However, the quotes that I got from contractors put me in a position that it was either do it myself or not have it done at all. Then I found your website, your epoxy floor system videos and how to do each step and felt pretty comfortable that I could do it. I have one more step in the process which is to apply the urethane and I will be done. My neighbors call me the "queen of the color chips" since I really applied them heavy. But I like it that way. One warning "do not throw color chips on a windy day".
