Polymer Flooring Services
Polymer flooring allows for the complete protection of concrete floors, making them resistant to harsh environments and general wear and tear. It is also a viable restoration method, coating over damaged surfaces to make them as good as new.
There are various types of polymer flooring that we offer — epoxy, polyurethane, acrylic, MMA, vinyl ester, and chlorinated rubber. However, before you choose which one is best suited to your needs, here are some factors to consider:
Chemicals Spills: Will the flooring be subject to the spillage of certain corrosive chemicals?
Human & Vehicular Traffic: How many people/cars will pass over the flooring each day?
Moisture: How much moisture would the polymer flooring be exposed to?
Temperature: What temperatures would the polymer flooring be exposed to?
The application process of the polymer flooring, vital to the final appearance and the functionality of the flooring, has to be decided on next. Below is a list of the application processes we offer.
Flooring Application Processes
- 300µm thick (Epoxy, Polyurethane, Acrylic, MMA, Chlorinated Rubber)
- 2-3mm thick (Epoxy, Polyurethane)
- 4-6mm thick (Epoxy)
- 2-3mm thick (Epoxy, Vinyl Ester)
Application Processes and Functions
The various functions of the polymer flooring application processes are explained here:
Polymer Coating: A layer of polymer floor coating about 300µm thick is painted above a supporting substrate. Thus, this method of application is recommended for floors that are in a generally good condition.
Self-Leveling Polymer Flooring: Self-leveling resurfaces are resin-rich flooring systems that are suitable for heavy use areas. 2-3mm thick, this form of flooring is the system of choice for large areas that require medium to heavy-duty flooring.
Polymer Mortar: Ultra-tough, this is the strongest polymer flooring system available. Epoxy resins are combined with a hardener and an aggregate to form a rigid plastic material — epoxy — that is strong, durable, and resistant. This material is then troweled into place, creating a thick 4-6mm layer of epoxy flooring that is highly impact- and chemical-resistant. It is also the system of choice in the reparation of old floors.
Fibre-Reinforced Coating: In this polymer coating, a resin (either vinyl ester or epoxy) is infused with fibre, creating an extremely strong and flexible compound that is 2-3mm thick. Durable and non-porous, this system is suitable for areas that have a high rate of chemical or water contact.
