Technical information

FeRFA (The Resin Association) do not consider anhydrite, hemi-hydrite and calcium sulphate screeds to be suitable for overlayment with resin floor finishes.

All thicknesses are nominal.

Altro resins are specifically designed for use in industrial and commercial environments and perform well in these areas. However, Altro do not promote resin products for use in domestic applications, on-site support is not available for such installations.

Altro resin products provide a tough and practical solution. However, as with most industrial and commercial flooring, in some situations resins may suffer chemical attack or staining particularly on premature or prolonged contact with chemicals including water. Please consult Altro for chemical resistance details.

Always use the correct maintenance and entrance matting to help minimise potential wear and maintain a clean environment.

Flooring surfaces with a texture shall require use of an appropriate cleaning method and materials. A build-up of dirt on a textured floor negates the benefit of texture.

Curing times are dependent upon the ambient and substrate temperature. Low and high temperatures will affect the application, appearance and service performance.

Other colours may be made to order. Pale colours may show some cosmetic discolouration on exposure to UV light. Please be aware when placing these products into areas where colour is important.

Please refer to the most up-to-date technical documents, including safety data sheets, for the Altro resin variant prior to beginning your installation.

PTV – pendulum test values are a general guide and measured in optimal laboratory conditions.

We strongly recommend carrying out a risk assessment in any area in which the installation of resin systems is considered, focusing on the potential risk posed by contaminants from spillages.

On extended contact, certain tyres may leach plasticiser. This may be difficult to remove or leave a permanent stain.
