Resin Flooring: A Chemical Resistant Solution
Protectant against staining, mold, mildew and foul odors, resin flooring has vastly become a popular flooring option amongst healthcare facilities, restaurants, commercial kitchens, veterinarian clinics and much more.
What is resin flooring?
Resin flooring is a combination of materials that, when mixed together, form a chemically hardened plastic-like surface. While there are many different types of resin floors to choose from, the most common types are epoxy, polyurethane resin, and acrylic resin. Each of these types are part of a two-way system consisting of a base material and a hardening material. Once combined, a chemical reaction between the two causes the materials to harden creating a chemical resistant epoxy flooring.
Why are the benefits of choosing industrial resin floors?
When it comes to benefits, a properly installed resin floor can provide your facility with a durable, safe, and flexible walking surface. Not to mention, resin floors are one of the most hygienic and chemical resistant flooring solutions on the market. Much like cleaning a kitchen countertop, spills can be easily dealt with by simply wiping them away as they will never settle or sink below the surface. Resin flooring is also one of the most popular flooring options in regards to aesthetics. With a wide range of design options and customizations, industrial resin floors are capable of meeting any design vision with elegance and charm.

Resin flooring installation
Upon installation, it is crucial that the concrete substrate is checked and properly prepared. The surface of the concrete must be even, slightly textured, and free from dust, dirt, or any other particles that could keep the resin from connecting to its surface. Once complete, the base material and the hardening material are mixed and ready for application. To ensure a quality finish, we recommend working with an experienced flooring contractor who can help you bring your design visions to life.

Resin flooring cost discussion
To better understand the cost of resin flooring, certain factors need to be taken into account. First, resin floors can be installed rather quickly, which translates to minimal or no downtime, which also equates to saving money. Secondly, resin flooring can last up to three times longer than that of other flooring types; thus, preventing the need to spend money on replacing flooring material.
