In order to get your project off to a flying start, we have taken a look below at the types of resin flooring currently available.
Epoxy – The most popular and widely use resin flooring, epoxy options come in several different types. Whichever option our clients choose, however, they guarantee themselves a material that bonds fully to concrete, thus protecting the subflooring from wear, abrasion, impact, water ingress as well as oil and chemical spills.
This thermo-set material provides optimal performance and durability but also makes a great choice for electrically conductive flooring too.
PMMA – Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) offers an industrial and commercial flooring option with an incredibly quick installation turnaround. Depending on the size of the area being covered, the application and curing process, even with temperatures under 0°C, can usually be finished within a weekend. For businesses in Hastings, Brighton and the surrounding areas looking for minimal downtime, PMMA makes the ideal choice.
The material itself also goes by the name of ‘acrylic’ or ‘acrylic glass’. Manufacturers use this to create well-known products such as Perspex, Lucite and Plexiglas. PMMA holds classification as a thermoplastic resin and offers impressive chemical, electrical and slip resistance.
Polyurethane – As with epoxy resin flooring, polyurethane options come with thermo-set classification. This means that a significantly longer installation time needs to be accounted for, unlike PMMA. However, the finished result has outstanding resistance to direct heat and high temperatures. As such, polyurethane resin flooring makes a great addition to areas directly in front of bakery ovens or where hot trolleys stand and cool.
As with every other resin flooring option available to our clients in Hastings, Brighton and the neighbouring areas, polyurethane provides impressive impact absorption.
Choosing the right resin flooring option depends entirely on its intended use because different chemicals have varying effects on these materials. For example, organic lactic acids in dairy, cheese and milk production have a corrosive and yellowing effect on epoxy floors, but no effect at all on PMMA or polyurethane. Likewise, industries that utilise sulfuric acid need to be aware that this chemical damages polyurethane floors.
