types of resin we install
There are three main types of resin flooring which we install across Derbyshire and the UK. These are epoxy resin, polyurethane resin and polyaspartic fast-curing resin. Each can be adapted to different resin systems and can be installed to many different specifications.
All are installed to meet specifications required in many different settings. If you would like free specialist advice, please visit our contact page to get in touch or call us direct at our main office on 01246 412 222 and speak to a member of our technical team.
Epoxy resin flooring is one of the most common resinous floor toppings. Like most resin systems it is installed by combining a base and hardener together which when dry forms a tough surface. Epoxy resin is a versatile substance and it comes in many systems. These systems have properties which make them individual.
We install epoxy resin flooring throughout the UK in its many forms. We have over thirty years of experience and install epoxy in many sectors.
Automotive sectors are where you would mainly find epoxy resin. This includes showrooms, workshops, garages etc.
Some of the main benefits or epoxy resin are its durability and hard wearing nature. You can use forklift, machinery and have constant pedestrian traffic over it. As long as you maintain the floor and patch any repairs you need to over the years, your resin floor with be easy to manage and long lasting.
Polyurethane resin flooring is another example of a hard wearing resinous material. It has good to high levels of chemical resistance depending on the product installed and can come in self smoothing options just like epoxy. It has many uses within industrial settings as well as commercial.
One of the main areas which you will find a polyurethane floor system is within breweries. This is due to the chemicals which are involved in the brewing process. On a concrete surface the chemicals will attack the floor and make it break down. Polyurethane, on the other hand, will not break down in the same way so is perfect for breweries, microbreweries and distilleries.
Like epoxy, polyurethane flooring can be self smoothing, which means it will create a more even surface on an uneven floor.
Polyurethane can also be used as a resin coved skirting. This is where a junction is created between the floor and wall. As there is no edge, dirt, oil, bacteria etc cannot get trapped. This allows for a more easy to clean and sanitise floor.
In contrast to epoxy resin and polyurethane resin systems, a polyaspartic system has a low cure time. This added advantage means that your flooring system can be ready to walk on in much less time. Polyaspartic floor coatings are used in instances where the area of floor is essential to use such as stairways, hallways, around fire exits and building entrances. This fast cure system is also used in busy factories, manufacturing plants and other places which are in constant use.
