From do-it-yourself to the most sophisticated techniques: the executive process to apply the resin to perfection. The materials, the tools to be used and the preparation of the support. How to proceed to obtain a smooth and regular surface in a few, simple but indispensable steps. The resin, by now, has become one of the most used materials in the building industry. The maintenance practicality of this material, the economy and the excellent aesthetic yield, make the resin an excellent ally for the realization of coatings suitable for all tastes and all needs.
To complete the picture of an excellent material, the characteristics of excellent resistance to wear, scratches and chemical agents also contribute. Precisely for these peculiarities, the resin has been used, for a long time, in industrial environments, but also in places such as hospitals and food production laboratories. Nowadays, however, the resin (resin driveways) is adorned with a new look and becomes a precious component of home furnishings, able to give preciousness and brightness to homes.
The absence of joints and the simplicity of installation are also among the positive characteristics that signal the victory of the resin on the other types of building material. How, then, is the installation of the resin for the realization of any surface? What is extreme ease? The main difference between the laying of the tiles and that of the resin consists in the complete absence of joints in the second.
In fact, while the ceramic or terracotta tiles (or even the parquet planks), are laid on the surfaces, inevitably using precision joints and tools that guarantee the correct positioning and correct planimetry, the resin avoids these complex processes, because, the material is applied with the help of a simple spatula that allows to level the resinous mixture.
In the case of tiles and planks, utmost care is required in laying each individual element next to the other, so as to create and respect small, medium or large joints (depending on the size chosen) that will then be filled with the appropriate mixture of a color very close to that of the coating.
When, on the other hand, the resin is to be applied to a given surface, it is decided to use a single mixture, made of resin and polymers, which gradually solidifies once applied to the affected surface; if a surface is already present, the resin will be one solid and resistant with it. The resin is a very resistant and practical building material: the compact structure and the complete absence of joints, at first, have facilitated its use within industrial buildings , over time, however, its fame has spread , even to conquer domestic environments . Any type of surface seems to be suitable for the application of the resin: the floors, walls, furnishing accessories , in practice, it is possible to cover a whole room with resin, so as to create a unique and striking environment aesthetic.
The resin is not subject to cracking, as long as the soil on which it is to be applied is adequately prepared and leveled. Furthermore, the resin (resin driveways) can also be installed on an existing floor , both in stoneware and in terracotta, however, it does not have a good grip on the glass. In this way, the resin avoids the costs of removal and installation and, thanks to the reduced thickness, it also avoids having to intervene on the sizing of various doors or projections.
Moreover, it is necessary that the substrate on which the resin is laid is not subject to moisture , since the latter is the main cause of cracking and deformity. In some cases, when the base is not perfectly smooth and regular, it is possible to resort to an elastic and insulating mat, in order to protect the resin surface.
