Is resin floor better than tiles?

Resin floors are heavy-duty flooring materials that can be installed in many different commercial and industrial settings. Depending on the kind of resin chosen, these floors can have high levels of slip, chemical and electrical resistance – all of which can be very important for safety purposes in many settings. These floors are also highly customisable, allowing them to be fitted to meet various design requirements in different environments.

Resin is a type of plastic that is created when mixing specific ingredients in order to initiate a quick and controlled chemical reaction. The result is a floor that is extremely hardwearing and able to handle a great deal of traffic and use, as well as being aesthetically pleasing, based on the kind of resin used.

It is for this reason that resin is often used as a floor coating for commercial spaces, as it can offer high levels of durability while still being very visually appealing. These floors can be customised to match the look and feel of any particular space, with the addition of colour options and even decorative chips/flakes or aggregates that are mixed into the resin in order to create a unique look for the surface.

Aside from their aesthetic appeal, the majority of floors that are made from resin will be incredibly easy to maintain. They are hygienic and resistant to harsh chemicals, which makes them perfect for food industry environments where it is particularly important that health standards are met. These floors are also incredibly durable, and can be easily repaired in the event of damage or wear and tear.

The preparation process for a resin floor contractors is incredibly important, and is one of the most important steps in the entire installation. RenderRight prepare the floors by shot blasting, removing any existing coatings and cleaning the surface before a primer layer is applied. After the primer has had time to harden, a base coat is applied and finally the main body coat of the resin is applied. This ensures that the floor has a smooth finish and is a safe surface for foot traffic.

Epoxy resin is a kind of floor coating that is often seen in factories and other similar commercial spaces. It is a hard-wearing material that offers a range of benefits, including resistance to impact and chemicals. It can also be customised with additional aggregates such as mother of pearl, glass and marble to create an aesthetically pleasing finish for the floor.

Another popular choice is polyurethane resin, which is a fast-cure solution that can be installed and cured within a day or two. It offers the same levels of slip, chemical and electrical resistance as epoxy resin but can be customised with different finishes and colours in order to suit the needs of any setting.

Both of these kinds of resin are ideal for industrial spaces, and both can be customised to offer enhanced levels of chemical, slip or electrical resistance as required. However, advice should always be taken from the resin manufacturer on specific cleaning procedures to be implemented and a small spot test is recommended to ensure that the flooring will not be adversely affected by any cleaners.
