Types of Poured Resin Flooring
There are three types of resin flooring, namely:
PMMA (Polymethyl Methacrylate):
It is a type of thermoplastic resin that is popularly known as acrylic glass. It can be customized to provide electrical resistance, chemical resistance, and antislip to suit different industrial needs. Moreover, it cures very fast and can be installed in just a single weekend, therefore results in minimal disruption of production activities. This type of resin is also extremely long-lasting and easy to upgrade, making it more expensive than other options.
It is a type of thermoset resin and has an advantage over other types in that it can withstand too high thermal temperatures and direct heat. As such, it is an excellent option in bakeries that have hot trolleys and ovens. It also provides excellent resistance to most chemicals, abrasion, and impact. On the flip side, however, it takes longer to cure, which means that it has more operational downtime when it’s installed and repaired.
It is perhaps the most common choice for businesses and other commercial entities. Epoxy resin is a type of thermoset resin that is safe, attractive, and long-lasting. During installation, it is bound fully to concrete and forms a tough surface, offering a protective coat from oil, moisture, impact, chemicals, and abrasion as well. This makes it the type that has the longest cure time of all of them. It also needs to be entirely replaced once damaged, so it needs to be maintained well.
