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.
We install our own brand of resin products as well as using products from approved manufacturers.
All are installed to meet specifications required and each have their own benefits. 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. We are always happy to answer any questions you have on our resin products.
What is epoxy resin? Epoxy resin is a material that is used to install flooring in industrial, commercial and domestic settings. It is a versatile substance and is used as a key material in many flooring systems. This includes Anti slip systems, Self levelling floors and within more Decorative finishes.
We install epoxy resin flooring throughout the UK and have over thirty years of experience. One of the most common sectors where epoxy-based systems are used is within the automotive sectors. This includes within car showrooms, workshops and garages.
Some of the main benefits of epoxy resin are its durability and hard-wearing nature. It can withstand the weight of a forklift and other machinery. It can also have constant pedestrian traffic going 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 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 in 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. Ideal in food production areas.

A polyaspartic resin has a low cure time. This has the added advantage that your flooring system can be ready to walk on in much less time. In the right conditions, if using a fast cure system your floor could be ready for light traffic in a few hours time after the final coat has been applied.
Polyaspartic floor coatings are used in busy factories, manufacturing plants and other places which are in constant use. This fast cure system is also used in instances where the area of floor is essential to use such as stairways, hallways, around fire exits and building entrances.
