Polyurethane floors are seamless coatings based on several types of polymers. Such surfaces have gained immense popularity, as they are characterized by minimal shrinkage and high strength.
Polyurethane-based coatings have many positive aspects:
- High strength combined with elasticity. A well-laid floor easily withstands static or dynamic shocks.
- The top layer of the floor is difficult to scratch or wipe.
- The service life of the surface can exceed 10 years. At the same time, the floor structure is practically undamaged or changes are minimal.
- Polyurethane does not absorb moisture at all. Therefore, the floor can act as a protective layer for the substrate.
- The structure of the material is smooth and high density, which does not allow the absorption of dirt. This in turn simplifies the maintenance of such surfaces.
- Injury safety. Although the material is smooth to the touch after curing, it is not slippery at all. Therefore, materials of this type cover clusters and sloping surfaces.
- Resistance to high temperatures and aggressive mixtures. Polyurethane floor does not burn, which makes it relatively safe. When heated, the material begins to melt and evaporate, releasing toxic components into the air.
- You can operate the products at low temperatures, but not below -25 degrees.
- Antistatic. Special additives do not allow dust to be attracted to the floor surface.
- Adequately respond to the actions to which they are exposed, for this reason, they are suitable in food and beverage processing plants.
Two-component polyurethane floor DRACO FLOOR 500
The product is characterized by excellent elasticity, mechanical and chemical resistance. The product can be applied as an anti-dust coating or as a thin-layer or thick-layer floor. To achieve better adhesion of the polyurethane floor, the substrate must be prepared in advance by removing insufficiently strong parts and applying DRACO PRIMO 800 primer. PRIMO 800 and quartz sand prevents the coating from cracking.
In order to achieve greater mechanical and chemical resistance of the floor, a top coat of DRACO TOP 500 is applied, which can be done by sprinkling quartz sand for anti-slip finish of the finished floor.
The process of food and beverage processing must take place smoothly and without unnecessary costs. It is understandable that the floors are not an absolute priority for the investor, ie the factory owner, but the impact of costs incurred due to deterioration or unsatisfactory functionality of the floor can be very large.
