A Guide to Polyurethane Resin Flooring

Most polyurethane resin flooring is installed in a vertical fashion by using long bolts or large steel rods in order to adhere the sheets directly to the concrete floor panels. Longer bolts or larger rods are typically used in order to ensure the maximum amount of strength and longevity for the floor system. Once the polyurethane resin flooring is secured to the panels, the flooring is sanded down to make it smooth and flat before being scuffed up slightly with a machine shovel in order to prepare the surface of the flooring for the first coating of paint.

Painting the flooring involves spraying a specially formulated paint over the surface of the flooring in order to provide a glossy metallic finish. Some coats may need to be scraped back and reapplied if there is an excessive amount of paint residue so that the first coat of paint has sufficient time to dry. If necessary, the polyurethane floor coating can then be topcoated with additional polyurethane resin for further protection and durability of the floor. The entire process of applying and finishing polyurethane coatings should then be completed only after professionals have cleaned and degreased the flooring in order to remove any loose dirt and dust particles that might have remained behind during the cleaning process.
