The Process Of Applying Polyurethane Flooring

Group 15

Surface Preparation: The Foundation of Quality

The process required to create a top-quality polyurethane floor begins with preparing the base. We start by thoroughly cleaning the existing substrate or concrete surface to remove all dirt, dust, grease, or other contaminants. This step is an important step to make sure the polyurethane coating adheres properly. Depending on the floor’s condition, we might use grinding, shot blasting, or other techniques to get a clean and suitably rough surface to work with.

Patching and Repair: Creating a Flawless Base

Next, we fix any existing floor imperfections such as cracks, holes, or other flaws. These are filled and repaired to create a smooth, even base. This step is essential to make sure that no flaws affect the final appearance and quality of your flooring.

Primer Application: Enhancing Adhesion

Before the polyurethane goes down, we apply a primer. This step is to strengthening the bond between the floor and the polyurethane coating. The type of primer we use depends on the flooring system and the current state of your floor.

Mixing and Application: Precision and Care

Polyurethane coating is a two-component material, comprising a base and a hardener. We mix these components together as per the manufacturer’s instructions. This process guarantees the correct chemical reaction and optimal curing properties.

Once mixed, the polyurethane is ready for application. We apply it evenly to the prepared surface, using rollers, brushes, or sprayers, depending on the project’s size and complexity. The goal is to achieve an even coverage without any pooling or streaking.

Curing: Setting the Stage for Durability

After application, the polyurethane coating enters the curing phase. This is when it hardens and gains its final properties. The curing time varies based on the product, usually taking several hours to a few days. During this period, we keep the area clear of foot traffic to protect the coating.

Additional Coats: Customizing for High-Traffic Areas

In high-traffic areas or where a thicker coating is needed, we may apply multiple polyurethane layers. Each coat is allowed to cure before adding the next, enhancing the floor’s durability and longevity.

Final Inspection and Maintenance: Ensuring Longevity

Once cured, we conduct a final inspection to ensure the highest quality. To prolong your floor’s life and performance, we recommend regular cleaning and periodic resealing.
