What is a PU cast floor?

A PU floor is a floor made of polyurethane (PU). Polyestershoppen's polyurethane cast floor has a number of specific characteristics:

  • Very UV resistant (unlike other PU floors).
  • Modern and warm appearance.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Seamless.
  • Strong and elastic.
  • Sound-damping.
  • Waterproof.

These characteristics make a PU cast floor very suitable as a floor in, for example, a living room, bathroom (anti-slip is possible), bedroom, office or similar areas!

Benefits of RESION PU Cast Flooring

Many PU screed systems are aromatic and therefore not UV-resistant. Therefore, the floors still need to be finished with a UV-resistant layer in color with a transparent topcoat over it, such as a matt gloss coating. Compared to other PU floors, the RESION PU Cast Floor is, is also UV-resistant without this additional finish! So this means that a RESION cast floor will not yellow under normal daylight exposure. In addition, the PU floor from Polyestershoppen is easy to process due to its good application properties and available in every possible RAL color. So you can always lay a floor according to your wishes and taste!
