Acrylicon Hygienic Industrial Flooring
For more than 30 years, Acrylicon has been providing high-quality, long-lasting industrial flooring across the globe. Our hygienic resin flooring has been proven to last longer and out-perform all other resins in the world market. We pride ourselves on the highest quality and best value possible. We have regional licensed contractors across the UK able to provide turnkey solutions from design to installation.
Acrylicon resins are very different to other resins on the market. Our key advantages are as follows.
Fast-cure resin flooring
Full chemical cure is completed within one to two hours. Although many companies give the ‘dry’ time, full cure can often take several days or even weeks. Even though a dry floor can be walked on, until it has reached full cure it is not resistant to chemicals – including water. Acrylicon’s short cure time means that repairs can be carried out overnight, with the floor being put back into full use just two hours later. The cure time enables other trades to follow on much sooner, dramatically reducing down-time or project build time.
Non-toxic, hygienic flooring resins
Current EU legislation requires all flooring in areas of food production, processing or preparation be non-porous. All Acrylicon floors are completely non-porous throughout the system. We do not suffer pinholes or micro-pores, unlike traditional PU or epoxy resins. Acrylicon is completely non-toxic, both cured and un-cured. We are solvent free and have no harmful plasticisers or VOCs. Once fully cured it is completely inert and carries an ISEGA certificate. When burnt, Acrylicon only gives off carbon and water steam, unlike traditional resins which give off dangerous gasses.
High-strength resin flooring
Acrylicon has a compressive strength of up to 104N/mm.sq. This is the highest strength resin on the market and ensures that dirt and debris will always remain on the surface – no matter what its use. It has been proven that Acrylicon floors are the easiest to clean out of all resins, and are comparable to stainless steel and Teflon.
Long-lasting industrial flooring
Acrylicon started laying its unique flooring systems in 1977. Since then, we have not changed the formula of our resins, only improved our laying techniques. It is a testament to the chemical composition of the flooring that our oldest jobs are still available to view. As one customer said, "It’s realistic to believe in a longevity of 30-40 years". With a true life expectancy of four to eight times that of traditional resins, we offer fantastic value for money. Many of our customers have carried out little or no maintenance over the first 15 years.
Antimicrobial product protection for industrial flooring
With the addition of Microban the Acrylicon floor will remain more hygienic between cleanings, 24/7, for the life of the floor. Microban antimicrobial product protection is effective in inhibiting the growth of microbes, such as bacteria and mould that can cause stains, odours and deterioration of the floor. Microban protection is built-in during the manufacturing process making it a durable part of the product inside and at the surface. Acrylicon with Microban has full EEC and FDA food contact approval.
