Resin Flooring Systems

The use of resin flooring systems in industrial and commercial environments is almost limitless, with options to suit every budget. Resin flooring can be applied to offer protection to the concrete floor surface against everyday wear and to protect the floor from spills and chemicals. It can be applied in a non-slip finish for safety requirements and as a decorative finish to enhance the appearance in the work place. From the application of a basic sealer coat, through to a thicker trowel applied resin floor screed, CG Flooring Systems have many years practical experience in the application of industrial resin floor systems.

There are different resin flooring systems available that are typically divided into epoxy, polyurethane and acrylic (MMA) resins. The different types of resin provide different combinations of application characteristics and through life performance and there are a number of factors to consider when selecting a resin flooring system. At CG Flooring Systems we have the knowledge and expertise to offer you sound professional advice on the most appropriate and cost effective resin flooring system to meet your operational requirements.

Critical to the success of any resin flooring system application is the level of surface preparation carried out before the resin can be laid. It is part of our ethos that detailed surface preparation is carried out on all our projects, where we will pay particular attention to:
  • Floor Joints – Location, Type and Condition
  • Surface Contamination – Oils, grease, etc
  • Cracking to the surface
  • Service Conditions (how the floor is expected to be used)
Our aim is to ensure you have the best possible experience with your resin flooring project. Please contact us and let us be your guide.

An essential criteria in selecting a resin floor system is to ensure the correct products are selected, with the resin applied at the correct thickness to meet the intended service conditions.

At CG Flooring Systems we follow the guidelines in British Standards, BS 8204-6, for the application of the various resin floor systems that are available:
