Resin engineering flooring – what is it?
Our resin flooring is available in epoxy, polyurethane and methyl methacrylate (MMA) and has many benefits that are necessary for all types of engineering flooring. Benefits include:
- Strong and fully bonded to the substrate
- Excellent resistance to a wide range of aggressive chemicals and substances
- Impervious to liquids
- Durability and resistance to impact or abrasion
- Hygienic and easy of cleaning
- Create a safe workplace
- Bespoke levels of slip resistance
- Greater resistance to cracking
- Low applied thickness
Resin flooring is extremely tough and durable, making it the perfect option for engineering flooring as it can withstand the demands that these types of floors require. All benefits and information on resin flooring can be found on our What Is Resin Flooring page.
Engineering flooring contractors
As resin flooring specialists, we advise the ultimate product for engineering flooring is FEFRA 8 Altro Crete or Resdev Pumadur HF, which provides all characteristics vital for an engineering flooring. As well as its impeccable impact and chemical resistance, its is also a long lasting, easy cleaning product available in a range of thickness from 2mm-8mm.
Reliable industrial resin flooring and maintenance
The expectations of an engineering flooring system must be very high due to the nature of the environment. We would recommend FEFRA type 8 products such as Pumadur HF and Altro Crete installed at 6mm which benefit from high impact resistance, natural slip resistant profile, high chemical resistance, ideal for forklift truck and other wheeled traffic and can offer outstanding life cycle costs due to the minimum 10 years anticipated life expectancy.
If the correct cleaning and maintenance is used, the appearance of your floor can be easily maintained. For floor with a high gloss finish, it is acceptable practise to lay a sacrificial layer of an acrylic polish, which will keep the high gloss finish, give a hard-wearing surface, can allow for the removal of surface scratches or blemishes and where carefully selected, will maintain slip resistant characteristics. Once applied, this seal should be maintained using a product designed to clean your floor along with carrying properties to re-enhance and protect the finish.
It may be necessary to occasionally remove the polish and start a fresh. This can be achieved by using a stripping product. This should be selected to ensure removal of any existing polish without detrimental effect upon the flooring system and any slip resistant characteristics.
FEFRA guide to cleaning resin floors covers a range of topics including cleaning, cleaning methods, static controlled flooring, cleaning materials, waste disposal, maintenance and spillages which can be used from all types of floors from FEFRA classification 1 to 8 which is from a basic floor seal up to a 150 microns thickness up to a heavy duty trowel applied polyurethane screed installed at 6-9mm.
