3D Epoxy Elooring | 3D Flooring

In recent years, 3D technology has become very popular in resin flooring. 3D epoxy flooring has been used more than before in shopping centers, halls, offices, houses, and apartments due to its visual appeal. This design is the latest fashion in the fantasy world of flooring.
3D epoxy flooring installation is different from vinyl stickers that stick directly to the floor. This type of flooring creates depth by creating a visual error. In addition to creating visual beauty, 3D epoxy flooring prevents possible damage to the building.
The installation process of 3D epoxy flooring is performed layer by layer like simple epoxy flooring. With the difference that after applying the epoxy primer, the selected image printed on a mesh fabric is overlayed the primer.
In this article the advantages and disadvantages of 3D flooring, its installation method, and the price of 3D flooring are discussed.

3D Epoxy Eloor Installation Tutorial

Installing a 3D epoxy floor consists of installing a layer of self-leveling primer and then applying the printed image. Next, a layer of clear self-leveling epoxy or polyurethane coating is applied. And finally, an epoxy protective varnish is applied as the top coat.
Unlike floor stickers and patterned vinyl flooring, 3D epoxy flooring are resistant to liquid penetration and physical damage. They create a seamless surface which is non-absorbent and washable.

 How to do 3D Epoxy Floor Designs:

The best way to install 3D resin flooring is to use printed polyester fabric. This cloth has a net shape, and epoxy material is used to attach the fabric to the floor. In this method, after the surface preparation and primer application, the printed polyester fabric is attached to the surface using epoxy material. After that, the transparent epoxy varnish is applied and in the last layer, a protective varnish is also applied to protect the floor from scratches.
The advantage of using polyester fabric instead of labels and stickers is its mesh, which increases the contact surface and strengthens the inter-layer adhesion of the flooring. In cases where a poster is used instead of mesh fabric, problems such as air gathering under the poster and poster delamination from the 3D flooring layers have been observed. The most important point in installing a 3D epoxy flooring, is to avoid the smallest errors in installation process. Therefore, it is suggested to get help from a professional supplier and contractor both for purchasing 3D epoxy flooring material and for its installation. If the installation of 3D epoxy flooring is not done correctly by professional contractors, it will separate from the floor, change color, blister, and crack in soon after its installation. Since the printed fabric is encapsulated in the flooring system, it is not possible to repair the flooring locally. In cases where there is a need for flooring repairment, the flooring should be installed all over again which would lead to additional cost.

Advantages of 3D Flooring:

Among the advantages of three-dimensional resin flooring the following can be mentioned:

Visual beauty:

The most important advantage of 3D epoxy flooring is its stunning visual beauty. In addition to its gorgeous appearance, it can solve many interior room problems due to its unique aesthetic quality. By choosing the right design, color, and pattern of 3D flooring, you can make the room look bigger. This product can help realize the infinite imagination of the designer and attract the eyes infinitely. 

High strength:

Another advantage of 3D epoxy flooring is that epoxy resin flooring is almost impenetrable and highly resistant to acid, chlorine, and other substances such as bleaches and daily cleaners. For this reason, these floors (3D epoxy) are also used for industrial sectors. A good installation of epoxy flooring will make it last for at least 15 years without changing its color.
Applying a polyurethane top coat will reduce scratch marks and wear due to the daily traffic, making the 3D flooring suitable for use in commercial centers with high traffic.
By using the final BASADUR®E 401 (Epocy Floor Coating Semi Matt) lacquer, you can have a fire-proof floor that will make a significant contribution to the safety of the building.

With the use of polyurethane coating, scratches and wear against high traffic are reduced, making the 3D flooring suitable for use in commercial centers with high traffic.

Easy maintenance and cleaning:

  The absence of seams and cracks, along with the non-absorbent surface of the 3D epoxy flooring, has made these flooring products resistant to any pollution and makes it unnecessary to spend a lot of time cleaning the floor.
The fact that there are no seams and cracks, as well as the waterproofness of this flooring, makes it suitable for use in bathrooms or toilets that are always wet. 
 

Disadvantages of 3D Epoxy Flooring

In general, the disadvantages of 3D resin flooring include the following:
• Sensitive and difficult installation
• More expensive than plain epoxy flooring
• Long-term installation of 3 to 7 days

3D Epoxy Flooring Price

3D epoxy flooring price depends on many factors: the substrate and substrate of the 3D flooring, size, type of material, selected design, durability, lifespan, etc., all affect the price of 3D epoxy flooring.
In general, due to the high durability of 3D flooring, easy and low-cost cleaning and maintenance, as well as easy repair, it can be said that using this flooring will be economical.
Note that the flooring may be slightly worn due to high traffic. In this case, with a little sanding and reapplying protective coating or lacquer, your floor will be like the first day, and there will be no need to remove and repair the entire floor surface, therefore, the repair of the three-dimensional floor surface will not be high.
