In modern construction, polymer floors have recently been very popular, and especially their variety of epoxy-based self-leveling floors. This is facilitated by their high reliability and simplicity of the device. In addition to the actual epoxy floors, polyurethane, epoxy-urethane and methyl methacrylate self-leveling floors are also widely used. Each of them has its own unique features..
The most common self-leveling epoxy floors are a very durable and waterproof coating that can withstand not only moisture, but also withstand significant mechanical stress. Thanks to this, epoxy-based floors are maximally wear-resistant..
But, experts appreciate not only the excellent resistance of epoxy floors to various external mechanical and chemical influences, but also their attractive and unique appearance. Therefore, such coatings are used not only in various industrial premises and laboratories, but also in design projects for the arrangement of residential premises..
Epoxy-based self-leveling floors look best in large halls and large areas. Floorings of this kind compete with more expensive floors due to the variety of colors and special gloss. The uniqueness of epoxy floors is achieved by the use of fine dispersion quartz sand as a filler, as well as various wear-resistant dyes, carefully selected in shades of color to the enamels of the general interior design.
In the process of making floors on an epoxy base of small thickness, a high quality of the base should be ensured, and the base coat itself, on top of which the decorative epoxy layer is built up, should be perfectly even. In this regard, special attention should be paid to the process of grouting and surface grinding..
In order to ensure the maximum strength of the epoxy self-leveling floor, you can both increase its layer and provide the required ratio of the constituent components in the recipe. The content in the mixture of quartz sand should be strictly 6: 1 to the epoxy component. Failure to do so may result in a defective coating that will peel off very quickly and the epoxy layer will separate from the base substrate..
