Resin Flooring Systems

The use of resin flooring systems in industrial and commercial environments is almost limitless, with options to suit every budget.

Resin flooring can be applied to offer protection to the concrete floor surface against everyday wear and to protect the floor from spills and chemicals. It can be applied in a non-slip finish for safety requirements and as a decorative finish to enhance the appearance in the work place. From the application of a basic sealer coat, through to a thicker trowel applied resin floor screed, CoGri USA have many years practical experience in the application of industrial resin floor systems.

There are different resin flooring systems available that are typically divided into epoxy, polyurethane and acrylic (MMA) resins. The different types of resin provide different combinations of application characteristics and through life performance and there are a number of factors to consider when selecting a resin flooring system. At CoGri USA we have the knowledge and expertise to offer you sound professional advice on the most appropriate and cost effective resin flooring system to meet your operational requirements.

Anti-Slip Finish

resin systems

Resin floor systems can be adapted to suit different requirements such as adding aggregates to provide a slip resistant finish.

Decorative Finish

Resin Screed With Decorative Flake

Decorative systems are available in a variety of colors and finishes. The addition of colored aggregates or flakes give a different appearance to the floor. Ideally suited for reception areas or showrooms where first impressions count.

An essential criteria in selecting a resin floor system is to ensure the correct products are selected, with the resin applied at the correct thickness to meet the intended service conditions.

At CoGri USA we follow the guidelines in British Standards, BS 8204-6, for the application of the various resin floor systems that are available:

Type Name Description Duty Typical Thickness

2 Floor Coating Applied in two or more coats. Generally solvent free LD/MD 150µ to 300µ
3 High Build Floor Coating Applied in two or more coats. Generally Solvent Free MD 300µ to 1000µ
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 >2 mm
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 minimise porosity MD/HD 4 mm
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 6 mm


Duty Abbreviation Description
LD Light Duty Light foot traffic, occasional rubber tyred vehicles.
MD Medium Duty Regular foot traffic, frequent fork lift truck traffic, occasional hard
plastic-wheeled trolleys.
