Types Of Synthetic Resin Flooring

Synthetic resin flooring is classified into eight specific types, each exhibiting its own particular performance characteristics.

BS 8204 -6, Section 6.2 (following the FERFA scheme) classifies the types, varying in thickness and surface finish, as follows:

 

Type Name Description Duty Typical thickness
1 Floor seal Applied in two or more coats. Generally solvent or water borne. LD up to 150 µm
2 Floor coating Applied in two or more coats. Generally solvent free. LD/MD 150 µm - 300 µm
3 High build
Floor coating
Applied in two or more coats. Generally solvent free. MD 300 µm - 1000 µm
4 Multi-layer flooring Aggregate dressed systems based on multiple layers of floor coatings or flow- applied floorings, often described as ‘sandwich’ systems. MD/HD > 2mm
5 Flow applied flooring Often referred to as ‘self-smoothing’ or
‘self-levelling’ flooring and having a smooth surface.
MD/HD 2 mm to 3 mm
6 Resin screed flooring Trowel-finished, heavily filled systems, generally incorporating a surface seal coat to minimize porosity. MD/HD > 4mm
7 Heavy duty flowable flooring Having a smooth surface. HD/VHD 4 mm to 6 mm
8 Heavy duty
Resin flooring
Trowel-finished, aggregate filled systems effectively impervious throughout their thickness VHD > 6mm

Some of these types of flooring may be produced with special decorative effects by the incorporation of coloured particles or flakes in the surface.  Terrazzo-like finishes (ground exposed aggregate) may be produced from certain trowel-applied floorings of Types 6 and 8.  Slip resistant or anti-static/conductive versions of all these categories may also be available.

The following tables have been produced to explain the relationship between the properties available within a particular flooring type and the conditions under which that flooring type will be applied and used in service.
