Why Choose Resin Flooring?

Resin flooring provides a tough, chemical resistant floor finish.

The chemical interaction between the component parts creates a surface that can be stronger than concrete itself because of the way resin combines with and is absorbed by the concrete, chemically fixing the surface and forming a continuous layer (providing the concrete is correctly prepared and primed).

Resin has the advantage of being extremely tough as well as having a degree of flexibility under stress; this property gives it durability under impact and thermal shock. Resin also has a compressive strength that is far greater than concrete, it will dissipate loading and can increase the weight bearing limit of the base concrete.

Some very good reasons for choosing resin flooring:

  • Strength
  • Abrasion Resistance
  • Impact Resistance
  • Hygiene
  • Low Maintenance
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Attractive
  • Safe
  • Anti Slip
  • Flexible

Hygiene and Maintenance

Seamless resin floors provide an impervious barrier and enable floors to be easily and effectively cleaned, its properties ensure it should not taint and can be pressure washed (check product specifications) Resin is also resistant to most cleaning products.

Chemical Resistance

Resin Systems are resistant to a variety of chemicals including acids, alkalis, solvents, oils and petrol. When applied as a seamless floor they prevent damage to the concrete beneath. Some resins are formulated to provide specific chemical resistance for specialist applications.

Attractive and safe

A huge range of finishes are possible using resin based systems from colour choice to the addition of coloured quartz, and decorative flake systems including natural and dyed aggregates. An anti slip surface can be achieved by adding graded aggregates within the base layer, different properties can be produced by the size and or coverage rates ensuring the best choice for wet or greasy floors can be achieved.

Why specify a resin flooring system?

The benefits of resin systems are numerous, however an important consideration should also be risk damage or wear to unprotected concrete floors these can be anything from marks and impact damage to chemical damage to the structure of the material.

It is worth noting that such damage may not only be unsightly or inconvenient but may also constitute a structural or Health and Safety issue.
Resins can protect, prolong life expectancy and prevent these potential problems.
