  • What is epoxy resin?

    Epoxy plastics belong to a group of substances called polymers. They are manufactured from two components: a base component consisting of epoxy resin, and a hardener component consisting of different types of amines.

    In addition there are also various additives in the base component and hardener, such as reactive thinners, pigments, fillers and other additives.

    These additives modify the epoxy plastic to suit the application in question. When the base and hardener are mixed there is a chemical reaction which forms a transverse structure: epoxy plastic.

    Yes, resin systems from Flowcrete can be applied to stairs if a wooden baton or retaining strip is fitted as a stair nosing to the front of each step to enable our approved contractors to flood each stair tread with resin.

  • What colours are available?

    We can install a resin floor in almost any colour. We have a range of standard colours available for each of the products that we supply.

    If the colour you would like is not available as standard we can have a colour specially blended to match as close as practicable any colour sample that you provide.

    Non-standard and specially blended colours are more expensive than standard colours, but create a more individual floor.
