Stepping out with fabulous flooring

Coating resins for the flooring market

Scratches, dents and black heel marks, not to mention general wear and tear, are just some of the indoor flooring challenges you face. We can help you meet these challenges through a broad range of resin solutions, from tough urethanes and two-component systems to the latest sustainable technologies like UV and even waterborne UV. Whether in wood, PVC, linoleum, or even concrete for outside flooring applications, our protective resins can deliver fast drying times with a swift return to service, and are resistant to everything from stains and chemicals to abrasion.

Instant on-site re-coating system

Is a strong, solvent-free flooring that looks great with a single coating solution really possible? It is now… a waterborne UV-curable coating, suitable for a variety of floors built on our NeoRad resin technology.

The advantages of UV-cured resins are well known: not only are they VOC-free, but they enable the flooring to return to service almost immediately thanks to a drastic reduction in drying times, which can be as little as one hour. However, on site UV flooring is also highly resistant to everything from stains to detergents. In fact, it retains its excellent aesthetics with no need for an annual re-coat. Truly, fantastic flooring. 

Formula for flooring success

“Without doubt, formulation can make or break a coating system. The message we hear again and again from our customers is that they want a resin that’s easy to formulate, but also sufficiently flexible to be tailored for their precise needs – and all while delivering a solid, reliable system performance. This is really our core strength at Covestro, across a really broad range of technologies. Yes, the resin is the backbone of the coating. But there’s a great deal of knowledge behind it, which we really enjoy sharing with our customers.”
