What is a Polymer?

Polymerisation is, in simple terms, a chemical reaction between multiple components to create a polymer.

Although the components of a polymer floor are primarily liquid (other than added decorative flakes, filler aggregates, texturising sand or anti-slip quartz beads), the chemical reaction results in a hard, durable surface for your floor.

There are different types of polymer flooring, that Resin Surfaces can design, supply, and install for its customers each with its own unique performance characteristics.

Food processing plant resin floor

Resin flooring Technologies:


  • Epoxy - Applications where durability and chemical resistance are required.

  • Polyurethane - Applications where elasticity, impact resistance and UV stability are required.

  • Polyurethane Concrete - Heavy-duty applications and areas of thermal shock.

  • Comfort PU Liquid Vinyl - Commercial applications where design and improved indoor environmental quality are paramount.

  • Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) - Speedy applications, where a quick turnaround is required.
