JOINTLESS FLOORINGS

For over 35 years, CERVERA Sistemas de Pinturas, S.L. has specialized in advising on and installing paint and resin-based jointless floorings for the industrial and construction sectors. Our technical knowledge, experience and close working relationships with the leading manufacturers of resins and cements on the market have enabled us to successfully complete several large products for clients as important as ABERTIS, AIGÜES DE BARCELONA, BAYER, BOEHRINGER, CABLAUTO, COTY ASTOR, DIPUTACIÓ DE BARCELONA, DRAGADOS, ENI, FCC, HINES, H&M, IKEA, LLUCH ESSENCE, METALDINE, METROVACESA, NOVARTIS, SALICRÚ, ETC.

Jointless flooring enables indoor and outdoor floors to be repaired affordably without the need for construction work or the removal of the old flooring. This kind of flooring requires less installation time than traditional systems and, depending on the type of process, it can be applied without having to interrupt production, thanks to the fact that it dries quickly, has a low toxicity level and gives off no odours. There is a very extensive range of finishes, both in terms of colours and textures, with the systems being widely used to cover large commercial and industrial surfaces.

Preparing the surface effectively is essential for ensuring an optimal result. Using a range of techniques, all impurities and contaminants are removed from the surfaces, giving them the ideal texture for enhancing the adhesion of the product.

At CERVERA Sistemas de Pinturas, S.L., we offer you all our experience and knowledge to assess which products and systems best suit your specific needs, giving you sound advice taking into account both technical and financial aspects. We give you access to systems with high mechanical, chemical and heat resistance, anti-static and conductive systems, elastic systems and non-slip finishes, as well as floorings with decorative qualities for both indoor and outdoor. Our highly-trained team and top-class equipment enable us to carry out large projects effectively and reliably. We adapt our work schedules to ensure that the impact on our clients’ activities is minimized, working on bank holidays, weekends and during vacation periods.

Our objective: Generating value for our clients.

 

BENEFITS OF JOINTLESS FLOORING:

  • Jointless flooring offers excellent properties and performance at highly competitive prices in comparison to traditional systems (jointed flooring). They can be applied both indoor and outdoor, catering for all mechanical and chemical resistance requirements at the very highest levels.
  • Being jointless, these floorings meet the strictest hygiene (antibacterial) standards demanded by sectors such as the pharmaceutical, food and chemistry industries, etc.
  • Maintenance is very economical, as they can be repaired and renovated simply without the need for construction work or the removal of the old flooring. Depending on the type of resin, the floors can be in service very quickly (in just a few hours).
  • Their application in building and interior design projects offers a broad range of decorative options. There is an extensive selection of finishes, colours and textures. The evolution of the materials and innovations in application techniques enable us to customize the floorings to our clients’ tastes, modernizing and giving a fresh look to conventional alternatives.

WHAT IS THE CORRECT PROCESS?

1. Analysis of the floor condition:

First of all, before choosing the best coating system to apply, a thorough analysis of the existing floor is required to identify its properties and features, including the level of humidity, consistency, potential contamination and the existing material, among other aspects, in order to provide the client with the most suitable solution and meet their expectations effectively.

2. Surface preparation: sanding, grinding, milling or shot blasting

Preparing the surface effectively is essential for ensuring an optimal result and preventing the insufficient adhesion of the product. The vital surface preparation process is often skipped to save time or money, but resolving any subsequent problems is always far more expensive than doing things right in the first place. Using sanding, diamond grinding, milling and shot blasting techniques, all impurities and contaminants are removed from the surfaces, giving them the ideal texture for enhancing the adhesion of the primer.

3. Application of the coating:

The right coating to be applied depends on the mechanical, chemical and decorative properties required of the flooring, taking financial aspects into account. Firstly, we apply a primer layer based on epoxy resins, followed by the chosen type of coating, the most common of which are as follows:

  • Paints and Sealants: Based on different types of resin binders (epoxy, polyurethane, acrylics, etc.), with or without the use of solvents, the pores in the surface are sealed to enhance the flooring’s strength against wear and tear, give it anti-dust properties, and make it watertight, easier to clean and more resistant to abrasion. These products are particularly suitable for car parks, industrial warehouses, etc.
  • Self-levelling mortar: Consisting of a binder based on the resins used in the case of paints, but combined with mineral loads to form a fluid mortar that, once set, has a uniform, very flat appearance and a low degree of porosity. These are particularly suitable for extreme hygiene requirements and provide high resistance against abrasion and wear. In addition, they offer a broad range of decorative possibilities.
  • Multi-layer coatings: Developed from self-levelling mortars, these coatings also use the resins mentioned above. They consist of an initial application of primer mixed and sprayed with sand, on top of which a specially pigmented resin is applied, especially formulated by thin layers and quartz sand in variable proportions. The top layer enables the application of decorative aggregates.
  • Cementitious and micro-cement coatings: Coatings based on mineral aggregates and resins that can be applied in variable thicknesses between 3 and 10 mm, which can be used as screeds and levellers with very good mechanical properties. As they can be used to produce decorative effects that are currently very popular among architects and interior designers, their use has become widespread in commercial premises, kitchens, bathrooms, etc. Using a range of working techniques and different materials, a multitude of properties and effects can be achieved.
  • Hardening, polishing and glazing treatments for concrete using lithium silicate: Surface treatment for concrete (or other stony surfaces) that uses a hardening, densification, polishing and glazing process to transform them into industrial, commercial or decorative flooring with excellent protective qualities and resistance to wear and tear.
