You may have heard about hard wearing epoxy resin flooring in some context, but what are the facts behind this particular choice of industrial flooring? As floor coating technology has progressed over the years, the term “resin flooring” has become associated with epoxy flooring.
Customers are often heard asking for epoxy flooring, when in fact what they need is a hard wearing resin floor or finish. A hard wearing resin floor can be acquired through a variety of different ways; epoxy, polyurethane, methyl methacrylate, polyaspartic and polyester, with each compound having a range of additives and thicknesses.
There is no need to make the assumption that this sort of hard wearing industrial flooring is only designed to be used within large factories, warehouses, or other working environments of that nature. Resin floors and finishes are installed in more commercial environments such as retail outlets, pubs and bars, schools, hospitals, and shopping centres.
Resin floors are created by mixing together a range of chemicals and materials that, when put together right at the moment of installation, will initiate a chemical reaction, which when finished produces the hard wearing and durable finish. The thickest form of resin floor can often be far more durable than concrete.
However, the decorative options available when installing resin floors makes for a much attractive option when compared to concrete. The decorative options can include special pigments, and decorative chips or flakes. Many resin flooring installation companies also provide a graphic service, which allows for company logos or any graphic image to be placed into the flooring.
Not only do resin floors provide industry sectors with incredibly durable floors, but are also able to be installed in a short space of time, leaving production at a stand fill for the least amount of time possible. Keeping a resin floor clean is another efficient attribute; the surface allows for optimal hygiene in working environments such as kitchens, hospitals, and garages.
