Layers Of Industrial Floor Coating
Multi-layer flooring systems are used to provide multiple layers of floor coating with each layer incorporating an aggregate, giving a build up of thickness to provide excellent properties of both wear and slip resistance. As opposed to a single colour, flow applied system, multi-layer flooring is often used to provide a highly decorative finish. This can be a flake type system as seen in the picture below, or a coloured quartz aggregate system. This type of floor finish is ideal for reception areas, showrooms, sports centres etc. and can include corporate logos or other designs as part of the floor.
Benefits of Multi-Layer Flooring
- Good anti-slip
- Can be used in wet environments
- Internal / External ramps
- Light pedestrian traffic
- Highly decorative
- Company Logo / designs can be incorporated
One major advantage of multi-layer resin flooring systems is the ability to apply them to substrates that are particularly weak or porous. The system allows multiple coats of low viscosity resin to penetrate the sub floor to initially strengthen and stabilise, so that when applying the final two to three coats that incorporate the decorative aggregates or flakes, the substrate that is being treated is extremely strong. These systems can be installed using the latest polyaspartic resins, which have cure times as low as twenty minutes, meaning that areas can be treated with a four to six coat system with the whole process being completed overnight ready for start of business the next day.
