Multi-layers flooring, often referred to as a ‘sandwich’ system, and requires highly specialist application techniques. A type 4 system is generally laid from 2mm upwards depending on its specifications, and may be sealed or aggregate dressed to provide a textured finish. It is formed using resin coats and suitable aggregates, then further resin coats to give a finish of the desired texture and thickness.


This type of resin floor system is suitable for medium to heavy-duty applications including regular foot traffic, constant fork lift truck traffic and hard plastic-wheeled trolleys with resistance to some impact.
