The products behind our floor and wall systems are at the cutting edge of technology. Only AcryliCon can provide these unique systems. For over 40 years, AcryliCon has been providing high quality, long lasting industrial flooring to clients from different market sectors. Based on our customer references in some of the harshest environments, we think Acrylicon Systems out-perform all other types of flooring in the world market. We pride ourselves on the highest quality and best value possible. We have regional licensed contractors across the world, able to provide solutions from design to installation.
A full chemical cure is completed between 1-2 hours. While many companies give the drying time, the full cure can often take several days or even weeks. Although a dry floor can be walked on, until it has reached full cure it is not resistant to chemicals - including water. Acrylicon's short cure time means that repairs can be carried out overnight, with the floor being put back into full use just 1-2 hours later. This short cure time enables other trades to follow on much sooner, dramatically reducing downtime or project build time.
AcryliCon started laying floors in 1977, and since then we have improved our systems and laying techniques. It is a testament to the chemical composition of the flooring that our oldest jobs are still available to view. We offer fantastic value for money, with many of our customers carrying out little or no maintenance over the first 15 years. As one customer said, "It's realistic to believe in a longevity of 30-40 years".
AcryliCon resins are thermoplastics, which means they are reactive and achieve a chemical bond between each installation layer. This results in a monolithic system with virtually no risk of delamination. Each new layer (primer, body coat and sealer) chemically fuses to the previous layer, creating nearly an unbreakable bond. Acrylicon Systems can be easily repaired and quickly refurbished in the case of any mechanical damage. It can also be bonded directly to drainage channels, without the need of an expansion joint, which creates a weakness that is often the cause of future issues.
Our systems have an extremely high compressive strength because of the way the resins are formulated in production, and with 40 years of successful track record, we are confident that our compressive strength does not diminish with time. Some of our oldest references that are 20 or 30 years old show no significant signs of degradation, cracking or brittleness in full service, offering proof that the strength has not deteriorated with age. Acrylicon’s formulation and design ensures our floor systems maintain their physical properties over time, unlike many other resin floor companies in the market that cannot offer references of more than 5-10 years old at best.
EU rules regarding food hygiene cover all stages of the production, processing, distribution and placing on the market of food intended for human consumption. The regulations say all floor surfaces should be easy to clean and require the use of impervious, non-absorbent, washable and non-toxic materials. For decades AcryliCon has made flooring systems that meet these requirements but are also solvent free and low VOC.
Using the latest technology and processes, AcryliCon resins are exclusively manufactured from our modern production facility in Germany. All installations are carried out by trained and experienced regional installers. This guarantees our quality throughout specification, manufacture and installation. Depending on the specification, we provide floor systems that meet modern day safety and comfort standards for indoor air quality certification, contact with food certification, fire resistance, slip resistance and even electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection.
