We have put together a list of some of the most commonly asked questions we hear from potential customers, together with the answers from our team of experts.

What is Resin flooring?

Resin flooring is best described as a combination of ingredients which undergo a controlled chemical reaction to create a hardwearing, waterproof and multi-resistant surface.

The resin flooring usually contains epoxy, methyl methacrylate (MMA), polyurethane (PU) or a combination of these.

How long will it last?

Resin flooring is very durable and depending on the product formulation used, if it is installed by a reputable company and is well maintained, it can last more than 10 years.

Will the resin floor take long to set?

The curing time depends on environmental conditions and the flooring system used.  Our team will make sure you know exactly when you can walk on your floor and when it will be fully cured.

What can damage resin flooring?

Chemicals can damage a resin floor.  It is ESSENTIAL that you choose a resin floor that is compatible with your industry and environment. 

Excessive heat damage.  The structural integrity of resin can be compromised with excessive heat.  Again, it is ESSENTIAL that you choose a resin floor that is compatible with your industry and environment. 

The resin floor should be installed correctly by experienced resin floor layers, and proper cleaning and maintenance will minimise any wear and tear and provide you with the long-lasting resin floor you expect.
