What can I do to resolve my concrete flooring problems?
Resin flooring is one of the best solutions to most concrete flooring problems, especially those relating to hygiene, continuity, waterproofing and protection against chemical spills.
Resin flooring helps to consolidate the support surface, prevents the formation of dust, improves wear resistance and the smooth transit of vehicles, even offering a wide range of decorative possibilities.
The resin, however, cannot replace the proper design of the concrete flooring itself, which must take into consideration the mechanical properties, the shrinkage and expansion joints, the dimensions, gradients, and the flatness.
One quick and easy solution for resolving concrete flooring problems is that of dust coating, which can be applied to industrial concrete floors and traditional cement screed. This treatment involves the application of a sealer resin (either transparent or coloured) to the concrete support. This decreases the porosity of the surface, thus drastically reducing the formation of dust and facilitating the cleaning of the flooring itself.
The Api products designed for concrete floors include APIDUST®, a two-component epoxy resin-based transparent sealer treatment that's particularly suitable for environments subject to light vehicular traffic. It resolves the problem of dust due to the transit of trolleys and reduces the absorption of liquids, thus facilitating cleaning of the flooring itself. It provides for a "wet look", which gives shine to the floor and enhances its colour shades.
