Resin-based Floors combine a high aesthetical look, with easy-to-use performance and anti-dust effects.
Resin-based surfaces cover a wide range of utilization needs, being made of innovative materials.
Resinous mortar coatings
Such products are created using resin-based mortars and mineral granulated compounds. Resin-based parts are Epoxy and Polyurethane Resins, sometimes are also used and applied Acrylic-thermoplastic compounds, using an hydraulic linking compound.
Polyurethane-cement is a product based on those two components, adding water. Colored, highly resistant, it is perfect for floors dedicated to high loads, strong abrasion and chemical exposures.
Multi-coating layers are applied using several applications of the product and inserting between those layers inert material, generally quartz, in order to improve the thickness of the coating itself. Rules&Regulations usually prescribe a thickness between 1,5 and 5 mm, even if it is recommended to start at least from 2 mm. on.
Such effect is created through application of high gluey products in order to push self-leveling, using pigments solvent-free, in condition to create a continuous and homogeneous film even on small areas. Generally they are made of Epoxy-based or Polyurethane-based Resins, or even the mix of both, and need to be mixed at determined speed using spiral blades.
Coating using a film
Film based coatings are actually done using generally colored paint: such floors can be done using a relevant number of colors offering a wide choice of esthetical effects. Such effects can also perform other tasks such as definition of a specific area, delimitation of a space, design of a brand or of a product.
In principle, impregnation System is based on resinous products to penetrate into the inner part of the coat, between 0,5 and 2 mm, in order to saturate any porosity, without the side effect to have a continuous but irregular coating of the floor. In some, exceptional cases, impregnation can reach 2 mm deepness, via special impregnation process.
