An overview of the different types of resin we install
There are three main types of resin flooring which we install across the UK. These are epoxy resin, polyurethane resin and polyaspartic fast cure resin systems. Each can be adapted to different resin systems and can be installed to many different specifications.
All are suited to industrial, commercial and domestic applications through the different resin systems. If you would like specialist advice, please call our main office on 01246 412 222 and speak to a member of our technical team.
Epoxy resin is likely to be the most well-known resin floor topping as it a durable, cost-effective resin floor paint used predominantly in the automotive sector as commercial garage flooring and car workshop flooring. The epoxy resin comes in many different systems such as Monargrip and Monarflor which is a self-smoothing resin coating. Epoxy resin is used in high traffic areas due to its heavy nature and can withstand constant vehicle, forklift or pedestrian traffic. It can also be beneficial in commercial flooring areas as well as being a durable car park flooring solution. It is hard-wearing and a very cost-effective option to consider.
A polyurethane coating on a floor increases its chemical resistance as well as strengthening the floor. It can handle moisture which is why it is ideal for testing and safety purposes. As businesses such as breweries deal with fluids on a day to day basis, this flooring solution is perfect to handle that environment.
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.
In conclusion, choosing the right resin flooring system is important to research before making a decision. To help with the decision-making process, Monarch offers free technical advice and conducts site surveys to give our best recommendation.
