What does a trowel floor consist of
The basis of this floor consists of PMMA resin and fine gravel. The resin binds the fine gravel together, as it were. A sealer is applied over the trowel mass – as this mixture is called. This ensures that the trowel floor is completely sealed for liquids and dirt. A trowel floor can be applied to different surfaces.
The advantages of a trowel floor
The top layer of a trowel floor is sealed with a gel layer, which means that no dirt or liquid can penetrate into a synthetic floor. This makes it a low-maintenance floor that also has a high chemical resistance. Furthermore, epoxy resin is twice as strong as concrete, which results in a high mechanical load-bearing capacity and can be installed seamlessly. Installing this seamlessly contributes to easy cleaning of the floor as well as its appearance. For example, large open spaces will look sleek, but it is also possible to install an entire floor of an office building with several rooms. Due to the versatility of the floor, it is suitable for many branches and purposes.

Installing the floor yourself: easy or not?
Installing a trowel floor yourself is done in a number of steps. First, a good and clean surface is of great importance. If the subfloor is not clean, the trowel does not adhere well. Therefore start by sanding and cleaning the subfloor. Then apply a good adhesive primer and allow it to dry for about 24 hours before continuing. After that, the challenging part of a trowel floor begins: the application of the intermediate layer: the trowel mass. It must be applied by hand and finished off very evenly. Then a sealer can be applied over the top, which will provide extra protection. Because of the quick-acting resins, the floor is completely cured and ready for use within 2 hours. The big advantage of the trowel floor is that it can be installed in one day (up to 1,500 m2).
