  • Why Choose Resin Flooring?

    Resin flooring provides a tough, chemical resistant floor finish suitable for domestic, industrial and commercial projects.

    Resin flooring provides a tough, chemical resistant floor finish suitable for domestic, industrial and commercial projects.

    Resin has the advantage of being extremely tough as well as having a degree of flexibility under stress; this property gives it durability under impact and thermal shock. Resin also has a compressive strength that is far greater than concrete, it will dissipate loading and can increase the weight bearing limit of the base concrete.

    The chemical interaction between the two component parts creates a surface that can be stronger than concrete itself because of the way resin combines with and is absorbed by the concrete, chemically fixing the surface and forming a continuous layer (providing the concrete is correctly prepared and primed).

    The benefits of resin flooring:

    Strength

    Abrasion Resistance

    Low Maintenance

    Hygiene

    Chemical Resistance

    Attractive

    Safe

    Anti Slip

    Flexible

    Chemical Resistance

    Hygiene and Maintenance

    Seamless resin floors provide an impervious barrier and enable floors to be cleaned easily and effectively. Its properties ensure it should not taint and can be pressure washed (check product specifications). Epoxy resin is also resistant to most cleaning products.

    Chemical Resistance

    Epoxy Resin Systems are resistant to a variety of chemicals including acids, alkalis, solvents, oils and petrol. When applied as a seamless floor they prevent damage to the concrete beneath.

    Attractive and safe

    An extensive range of finishes are possible using resin based systems from colour choice to the addition of coloured quartz, and decorative flake systems including natural and dyed aggregates. An anti slip surface can be achieved by adding graded aggregates within the base layer, different properties can be produced by the size and or coverage rates ensuring the best choice for wet or greasy floors can be achieved.

    Resins can protect, prolong life expectancy and prevent potential problems of damage or wear to unprotected concrete floors e.g. marks and impact damage or chemical damage to the structure of the material. It is worth noting that such damage may not only be unsightly or inconvenient but may also constitute a structural or Health and Safety issue.

    The choice of Addagrip Terraco Flooring systems are as follows:
    Floor Coatings ( EP Addaflor, EP Addasol Shieldcoat, EP Addalevel SL2K)

    Hard wearing floor treatment.

    Light to medium duty with mild exposure to chemicals.

    Easy to clean and reduces dust.

    These systems can be used to produce decorative flooring systems for residential as well as commercial applications.

    Heavy Duty - Industrial (EP Addagrip HD Mortar & EP Addapatch)

    Thicker Application Usually 6mm - 9mm

    Iincorporate properties of the floor coating systems, however, will withstand tougher environments and use.

    The properties of resins make them suitable for application to a range of surfaces including;

    Concrete

    Marine Plywood

    Metals (subject to preparation)

    (Formulations may be specific so always check suitability prior to application)
