General Questions

The reason why you won’t be able to find an easy answer to this question is that there is no pin point because per square meter answer. There are so many factors which influence the cost of a resin floor. Amongst them are are four main factors; the size of the project, what product is being installed, its location and the preparation behind the project. The more preparation which is needed and the larger the area the more the project will cost. If you would like a quotation or some more information about pricing then please use our contact form at the bottom of this page with as much detail as possible and we can get back to you. 

Monarch installs resin flooring within domestic garages in and around Derbyshire and Yorkshire where our main offices are based. We do not at this time install resin flooring within living spaces such as kitchens and dining rooms. 

There are instances where small projects may want to be installed by customers local to our Derbyshire office. In this instance it is advised that they get in touch with us so we can determine whether the product wanted is suitable and easy enough to install with the level of experience stated. 

Curing time depends on the product which has been used and the temperature at installation. Some epoxy flooring products can take as little as 24-48 hours for light traffic. Fast curing resin flooring products such as polyaspartic can cure in a few hours depending on the thickness and temperature installed at.

We have been working with resin products for over 30 years so have a lot of experience with all types of floor. This includes commercial, industrial, pharmaceutical and many more sectors. Get in touch for some free technical advice. 

Ideally we would prefer to apply resin flooring products onto a concrete or cementitious base. If the concrete has been previously painted and worn then we would then diamond grind off the existing floor to create a smooth surface to install on top of. Resin can also be installed on asphalt, wood and tiled areas but please contact our technical department for suitable products. 

Yes, no resin floor installed can guarantee that it is scratch proof. However, installing a decorative floor such as Monarflake or Monarquartz will help to make any scratches a lot less noticeable.

Yes, certain types of resin have strong odours. Other resins, however, are odour free. Please contact us for advice on this. 

If you are working in an setting such as a food and drink factory which has open food then you should be having a food grade or ‘food safe’ resin installed. Please contact our technical department to access products being used and advise potential taint products. 

About our Products

Epoxy resin flooring products have some chemical resistance, are tough against day to day use and can come in anti-slip, self-levelling and decorative systems. This type of flooring is used mainly in the automotive and industrial sectors in garages, factories, warehouses and ares which want a decorative finish. 

Polyurethane products such as Monarthane have a high chemical resistance. This type of flooring is mainly found in food factories, breweries and laboratories. 

Liquid linoleum is a more eco friendly option of flooring. It is sometimes described as ‘comfort flooring’ and has noise dampening qualities. It also has a ‘memory’ element which allows its surface to return to a smooth finish when compressed. This type of flooring is mainly used in offices and within the healthcare sector.

A polyaspartic floor has fast-curing properties. It is often used in areas which are in constant use. The resin will cure in a few hours as opposed to a few days when in the right temperature conditions. 

As well as installing Monarch products, we also install resin flooring products from a number of well known manufacturers. 

Yes, our full range of Monarch products are for sale to experience resin flooring installers. Please contact our sales desk for technical advice. 

Line marking can only be considered temporary and will require re-application on a two-three year cycle depending on use.

Technical Queries

We would expect Monarthane life span to exceed 10 years, whereas a Monarcoat 720 will last 2-4 years depending on amount of trafficking. Resin flooring systems are generally long-lasting as they are made to be hard wearing. However, it’s difficult to predict a generalised amount of time for each product as they will have different amounts of wear in different situations. This can all be discussed with our technical team.

The thicker the resin flooring product then the more wear and tear from machinery and forklifts it can withstand. Products such as Monarthane and Monarflow are the most heavy-duty flooring products we install. The thinner systems are more likely to be damaged, particularly when pallets are not being lifted properly and dragged across the floor. 

Generally speaking, the chemical resistance of polyurethane products is superior to epoxy resin flooring products. However, some chemicals and concentrations are too harsh for any resin products. Please advise our technical team of chemicals which are likely to come in contact with the floor including concentrations, temperature and timescale of contact with the floor and we will be able to offer other recommendations. 

Some of Monarchs resin flooring products and systems are designed to be anti-slip in their natural form. Other Monarch products can be made anti-slip to suit the individual requirements. 

It is ideal to install resin flooring in clear, open areas. However, in some instances where machinery cannot easily be moved plant and equipment can be worked around.
