Poured floors in bathroom: types and features
Most often, either ceramic tiles, or stone – artificial or natural, is used for finishing the floor in the bathroom. However, not so long ago one more option has appeared. It got popular very fast and turned out to be one of the most demanded on the market. It is poured floor.
The reason of the popularity of such a material is quite understandable, because it has a lot of benefits, such as:
- exceptional water resistance, which is the best characteristic for a room with high level of moisture;
- absence of joints, durability, multi-layering;
- good heat and sound insulation;
- ease of cleaning and neatness.
If you are also interested in poured floors, it makes sense to find out which formulas are used for their installation, and what design will match your bathroom best.
Formulas based on polyurethane are the most famous and are used everywhere. Their main benefit is that such a finishing is a single solid monolith.
However, it should be remembered that polyurethane can be different. It is necessary to have a highly filled liquid floor for the bathroom, which includes at least two components. The more layers of material are, the higher the strength is, and the more resistant the finishing to temperature changes will be.
Polymethyl methacrylate, which is often called plexiglas, has been significantly improved over the past few years and now it is used as a floor finishing. It can be in use up to 40 years with proper care. It is characterized by increased wear resistance and strength.
This material is resistant to any external influence, such as temperature changes, direct sunlight, falling of any objects. However, only specialists should install it.
Why? It’s simple. Methyl methacrylate is drying up quickly, so you need to install it very fast and neat. If you’ve never done anything like this, it’s better not to try.
According to its technical characteristics, this kind of finishing is not worse than the previous one. However, it should be taken into account that a crystallized epoxy mastic gum may be fragile for heavy machinery.
Apart from that, it is perfect, especially for those people who like the original designs and want to experiment with the design of the bathroom. You can recreate any picture on the epoxy floor – from a miniature elegant ornament to a picture of a famous artist.
