Choosing the correct industrial solution for your exact applications and industry needs is important to ensure you are getting the most out of your flooring system. There are many different options available when it comes to industrial flooring, so what are the different types and which would be best suited to you?

Epoxy Resin Flooring:

Arguably the most popular choice, epoxy resin industrial flooring is known for its strength, durability and longevity! Composed of epoxy resins and optional RESPOL co-reactants (including but not limited to anti-static, anti-slip and heat or chemical-resistant properties), this flooring can be tailored to a variety of industries, such as pharmaceutical (including clean rooms) automotive and food and beverage. This is due to its performance and durability even in high-traffic areas, but also thanks to its easy-to-clean nature, making it ideal in environments where hygiene is essential! It’s also a long-wearing solution that is easy to maintain.

Polyurethane Flooring:

Polyurethane screeds and coatings are often considered an alternative to epoxy flooring, as they are also renowned for their performance and durability. This makes them suitable for heavy-duty environments and, again, due to their easy-to-clean nature, for those that have stringent hygiene requirements. Typically, it is used for clean rooms and residential or commercial environments, but at RESPOL, we offer a more heavy-duty formula that can stand up against industrial challenges. It is more versatile than epoxy resin, despite being a synthetic resin, and can also be used for decorative as well as functional purposes.

Polymer Flooring:

Another popular type of industrial flooring is polymer floors. One of the major benefits of polymer flooring is its resistance against external factors, corrosion, thermal fluctuation, and heat. It is also a strong, cost-effective solution for both internal and external industrial use. Therefore, it is often used in factories, as well as hospitals, as it works well in heavy-traffic environments where spillages or consistent footfall may occur. At RESPOL, we offer both traditional and pumped polymer screed flooring solutions, depending on your exact industrial and application needs.

MMA Flooring:

Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) flooring is a seamless industrial flooring that comprises thermoplastic resins which chemically bond between installation layers. This allows for a monolithic finish as well as unparalleled strength. At RESPOL, we offer a range of MMA industrial flooring solutions that are hygienic, durable and can withstand extreme temperatures. This makes them particularly ideal for the automotive and car, chemical and electronic industries, where heavy machinery and dangerous substances may be present.

Concrete Densifier Flooring:

If you are looking for maximum durability and longevity in your industrial facility, concrete densifier flooring is the perfect solution! Concrete densifiers are chemical hardeners that spread across a floor to create a seamless, durable and long-wearing surface. This occurs because the hardeners penetrate the surface of the concrete to fill any gaps or porous holes. This industrial solution is suitable for both polished and non-polished floors and helps to maximise the performance and wearing of your floors. At RESPOL, we offer a range of concrete densifiers specifically designed for a variety of applications, including warehouse and factory environments.

Decorative And Specialist Industrial Flooring:

If you are looking to enhance your industrial flooring, we also offer a large range of decorative flooring options, including but not limited to health and safety line markings, floor painting, decorative flakes, and coloured aggregates. This way, you can make your solution both functional and decorative. As mentioned before, we also offer a range of co-reactants that can give your industrial flooring important properties, such as higher levels of heat, anti-slip, chemical and impact resistance. We also offer an innovative industrial solution called Air Bearing Floor. This uses air flotation technology to create a cushion-like layer between the surface of your floor and heavy objects or equipment, making it an ideal solution for industries or warehouse and factory facilities that utilise or move larger or heavier goods and equipment, as it prevents damage to the floor surface from impact.

From design, preparation and installation to repair and maintenance, you can rely on RESPOL for high quality, reliability and longevity!
