So, as contractors of many quality flooring technologies, here is everything you need to know about resin flooring.

What Is Resin Flooring?

Poured resin flooring is often the name given to a number of different types of flooring (not just epoxy resins.) They are specifically designed to be hard-wearing and highly chemically resistant. When applied onto concrete, a chemical reaction between the two component parts takes place. During this, the resin absorbs the concrete and becomes a far stronger surface than the original concrete alone.

A Strong and Tough Material

Resin floors are incredibly strong in comparison to other industrial floor systems. In environments which experience heavy flows of tragic, or areas where large machinery is used, industrial resin flooring is an ideal option and one that can improve both the efficiency and the safety of a particular area. Resin flooring can withstand high impact and provides an efficient degree of flexibility when under stress.

A Chemically Resistant Material

A resin floor coating is also resistant to a number of damaging solutions, including acids, alkalis, solvents and oils. Due to these solutions’ ability to wear down many other flooring types, resin flooring can in fact withstand most damage, and ensures the risk of health and safety issues is at a complete minimum.

The Application of Resin Flooring

The properties of commercial resin flooring systems mean that it can be applied fast, to a variety of different surfaces, including concrete and metals. However, before attempting to ever do it yourself, seek the professional advice of a resin floor specialist, as mistakes to large quantities of floor space can be costly to repair.

The Aesthetic and Hygienic Qualities of Resin Flooring

Other industrial floor types can often quickly become worn, posing various health and safety risks throughout an industrial setting. The finish that is applied with our resin systems is smooth, seamless and completely unnoticeable over both large and small space areas. Resin floor paint can also be applied in a wide range of colours, encouraging not only a safe work space, but an aesthetically pleasing and high-quality one.

Resin floors are also easily maintained. They are resistant to direct chemical application, making regular cleaning tasks a hassle-free and easy process. If looked after well, resin floors will provide a long-lasting and effective product, offering the same quality throughout as the day it was originally placed.

The Types of Resin Systems

There are a number of different types of resin used throughout the industry, including acrylic, polyurethane, epoxy and water based.
