A seamless floor is a coating made of thermosetting or thermoplastic resin. Eradur AB delivers liquid flooring where component A + B is mixed by the flooring contractor on-site for installation and application to the substrate. After application, the product cures to a hard and very durable floor without joints. Usually, several layers of different products are combined to create a finished floor system. Seamless floor coatings are often referred to by other names such as compound- resin- acrylic- and epoxy flooring.
Curing resin coatings become very robust thanks to the strong chemical network: "polymer" that is formed during the curing process. A seamless resin coating has good temperature resistance, very good mechanical durability and is well resistant to chemicals. The thermosets used for seamless floors can be chemically divided into three different classes, depending on their chemical composition:
Epoxy, polyurethane, and acrylate. The chemical composition affects the properties, both during installation and on the finished product.
Annually, approximately one million square meters of seamless resin flooring is laid in Sweden and the products have been on the market for over 50 years.
What are the advantages of seamless flooring?
What distinguishes a seamless floor is that it is applied as a liquid mass and thereby forms a homogeneous surface without joints and cures to a very strong polymer. These factors provide a hygienic, easy to clean and extremely durable surface against both chemical and physical effects. A seamless floor can also be made self-levelling, which gives a smooth surface even on slightly uneven surfaces. The application of a seamless coating takes place quickly, and the floor is ready to use after only a few days.
Most substrates can be coated after a proper pre-treatment. Old or new surfaces; concrete, levelling compounds, metals, wood and board products, asphalt and more. The conditions may differ but it is solved with the right pretreatment.
Through access to different chemistry, the coatings can be adapted to a variety of environments with specific requirements for function and aesthetics.
