    When asking a question, choose and state the title of your question correctly so that the relevant expert can answer your question in the shortest possible time.
    Below are some frequently asked questions about resin-based flooring material along with their answers.
  • What are the advantages of using BASA Polymer floorings?

    Concrete surfaces are weak against water penetration, abrasion and chemicals. Also, stone surfaces have seams and after a short time, the seams absorb environmental pollutants and cause many health problems.
    If BASA Polymer resin flooring is applied on concrete, stone and ceramic surfaces, a seamless layer is formed on the surface, which protects them against water penetration, and damage due to chemical leakage.
    In addition, the flooring will have superior mechanical strength and properties to concrete, mosaic, stone and ceramic.
  • How does new advances in technology help BASA Polymer portfolio?

    BASA Polymer has used technologies such as nanotechnology, VOC-free products, self-healing coatings and water-based products in the production of some of its products. The use of these technologies has resulted in products of much higher quality and safety than in the past.
  • How long is the service life of BASA Polymer floorings?

    BASA Polymer floors have a long service life. Depending on the type of product selected and the intended use, they generally have between 1 and 20 years of suitable use. However, this efficiency is directly dependent on factors such as the type of flooring applied, the amount and type of traffic on the floor surface, the chemicals used on the floor surface, and also the method of maintaining and cleaning the floor surface.
  • Do dust and debris particles, damage the surface of BASA Polymer floorings?

    The presence of dust and other physical contaminants on the surface flooring does not damage it. However, the wear of large abrasive particles on the floor surface due to the movement of people and vehicles, causes scratches on the floor surface, which can be easily prevented if the surface is cleaned properly.
  • Can BASA Polymer resin flooring be used outdoors?

    Yes, for this purpose applying a thin layer of anti-UV products as the final layer or top coat, will prevent the resin-based flooring from turning yellow in areas that are exposed to sunlight.
  • How long does it take to install BASA Polymer resin-based flooring?

    BASA Polymer resin flooring usually consists of two to five layers. The time required to install each layer is directly dependent on the area of the substrate. Considering the curing time of each layer, the installation of a resin flooring takes almost 5 days on average. It is worth mentioning that as the required thickness of the floor increases, the duration of its installation may be longer.
  • Can BASA Polymer rein-based flooring be installed over an old flooring?

    Yes. Before the installation, you must make sure that the previous floor is well-prepared, clean, and strong and it is well-adhered to the substrate.
  • Is the surface of BASA Polymer floorings slippery?

    The spillage of water or oil on the surface, make surface becomes slippery. In work environments where the presence of liquids on flooring is permanent, the use of anti-slip BASA Polymer flooring is recommended.
  • What is resin flooring?

    Resin-based flooring material is a liquid, two- or three-component product that is used as flooring in various industries and applications. The components are mixed before installation and then applied over the substrate in different layers. This mixing initiates a chemical reaction that changes the material from liquid state to a hard and solid surface in a certain amount of time. Each layer of the flooring system is installed after the previous layer is cured. The number of layers and their combination is determined according to the final application. 
    Being liquid at the time of installation, these products are seamless and no fixed dimention so that they do not leave any waste and can fit into any room geometry. Also, no adhesive will be needed to install these flooring materials. There are different types of resin-based flooring based on the type of resin used in their formulation (epoxy, polyurethane, polymethyl methacrylate, etc.) or the final thickness of the applied system.
  • On what surfaces is resin flooring installed?

    Concrete, stone, mosaic, ceramic, metal, and old resin flooring are all surfaces on which new resin flooring can be installed. Interestingly, there is no need to remove the previous flooring as long as it is well-adhered to the substrate with no sign of crack or delamination. That is why resin-based flooring material is a good solution for refurbishment projects.
  • In what places is resin flooring used?

    1- Hospitals, pharmaceuticals, and GMP-regulated production halls: due to compliance of these products (resin floor) with the rules of the Food and Drug Administration and GMP;
    2- Multi-story car parks: due to high durability, complete surface sealing, the possibility of design and installation very quickly compared to other products;
    3- Industrial factories: due to the facilitation of current processes, creating a healthy and pleasant environment and a significant reduction in repair and maintenance costs; and
    4- Showrooms, exhibitions, and shops: due to easy cleaning, the possibility of creating special designs, and ease to use.
     
  • Does spillage of oil, brake fluid, or bottles of antifreeze damage the surface of the BASA Polymer flooring?

    All BASA Polymer floors have chemical resistance to these materials. But these materials should not remain on the floor surface for a long time.
    Information on the chemical resistance of BASA Polymer flooring against various chemicals is provided in the product specification datasheets.
     
  • How long after casting the concrete to the floor, can resin-based flooring be applied to it?

    At least 30 days must have passed, since the concrete was laid, to allow the concrete to dry completely and be ready for resin flooring. otherwise, there would be a risk of blistering and delamination.
