Worried about the time it will take to install the flooring aspects of your project? Many resins can now be installed on the fast track – ideal for locations that want to speed up a construction schedule or minimise downtime during a refurbishment. Those in charge of busy commercial environments, whether an airport, a department store or a hospital should look at the various fast track MMA flooring systems which can be put into service for traffic after as little as a few hours.
Fast track resins are suitable for the following environments:
- Food & beverage
Using methyl methacrylate technology (MMA), these flooring systems are ready to walk on after one hour and full service use within 2-3 hours of installation (generally not possible with epoxy and polyurethane flooring systems). In addition to unrivalled installation and cure times, these systems also offer an decorative finish.
Key characteristics of MMA include:
- Extremely fast curing
- Strong odour which can be mitigated with correct ventilation at the application site
- Varying degrees of slip resistance can be attained
- Range of colours available
- High durability
In addition, MMA systems are versatile, combining excellent wear and impact resistance with good chemical resistance, enhanced UV stability whilst giving a seamless hygienic finish, that is easy to clean and maintain.
Installation of resin flooring systems should only be carried out by an experienced contractor with a documented quality assurance scheme.
