Resinous flooring

Resinous flooring

To eliminate the flaws in concrete floorings, protective layers are applied- epoxy floorings, which guarantee great endurance to mechanic stress (wearing down, pressure) e.g. road traffic, great chemical endurance to diluted acids and base, petroleums and easiness of maintaining cleanness. The flooring are from 0.5 to 6mm thick and applied in internal rooms, also in the food and pharmaceutical industries, working in temperatures between -30°C and +50°C.

They can be divided into:

Thick and thin layered and, depending on the method of application, into: painted, covered, flow applied, trowelled.

Choice of the right flooring depends upon many factors, such as:
- purpose of the flooring – production hall, high storage warehouse, and such alike
- mechanical stress – pedestrian traffic, handcarts, forklifts...
- potential exposure to chemicals – ho water, oils, chemicals
- type of production - dry, wet
- room in danger of explosion
- aesthetical expectations
- cost of the flooring

If the aim of the protective layer is to protect concrete against dust and petroleums and pedestrian traffic will take place in the room, a thin layer flooring can be applied. Thickness of about 0.5 mm enables to keep the concrete flooring away from corrosion factors but the aesthetics is to a high degree dependent on the evenness of the flooring (it can be smoothed by applying a smoothing layer) which is repeated on the surface of the flooring. This sort of flooring is characterised by low cost and specific endurance but a low resistance to mechanical and chemical stress. An example of such flooring is the Thin-layer epoxy flooring.

In case of professionally protected concrete flooring, only thick- layer floors come into account. Laid 2mm thick, they ensure a long- standing, failure- free exploitation.

The easiest in applicability are flow applied floorings, providing smooth surfaces of a high polish. Easy to maintain cleanness, but susceptible to scratches, in the course of exploitation they become evenly matt, and because of a high amount of resin used- expensive. Applied in high storage warehouses, production halls, social rooms, sanitary rooms. E.g. industrial epoxy flooring.
In places, where antislip is requires, e.g. in meat processing plants, underground car parks, covered floorings are recommended, where by the accurate choice of the aggregate and the method of covering, a porous surface is achieved, which at the same time, is easy to maintain cleanness. E.g.. Antislip epoxy flooring.

If apart from chemical and mechanical advantages, an attractive appearance of the surface is expected- orange peel with a combination of any tone colours of sand, a trowelled flooring is recommended, so called stony carpet. An example of it is Decorative epoxy flooring „stony carpet”
