Rapid curing–even in cold temperatures, excellent impact and water resistance, good chemical protection and moderate thermal shock resistance.
PermaFloor offers durable, fast-curing Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) seamless flooring systems that, in many cases, can be installed overnight and ready for service the next day. Our MMA systems are strong and resilient, offering you high resistance to abrasion and chemicals, in addition to moderate thermal shock protection. Excellent UV protection prevents fading and yellowing even in direct sunlight. MMA formulations are non-porous, pinhole free to keep out water, dirt, bacteria and mold for a stain-resistant, easy-to-clean floor. MMA systems bond on any substrate and are easy to fix in the unlikely event damage should occur. Can also be installed in cold temperatures as low as -20°F.
A wide variety of decorative color blends, patterns and textures including vinyl chips and quartz are available.
Typical Thickness: 1/8 to 1/4-inch.
Drytime: Typically 1-hour cure.
Specification Sheet: Coming soon.
Considerations: MMA is particularly well suited for restaurant and grocery store floor renovation projects where a rapid turnaround is required. MMA’s fast cure time, and PermaFloor’s willingness to work around your schedule, help to minimize downtime for your business. Fast cure time reduces downtime during renovations, however a skilled crew that can work with the rapidly curing system is essential for proper installation. PermaFloor’s experienced crews are factory trained to do the job right, so your floor will remain beautiful and trouble free for years to come.
Though VOC compliant and odor free when dry, MMA has a very strong odor during installation. MMA is also flammable before curing, which necessitates extra safety precautions.
For applications where a deep, high gloss appearance is desired, our Vinyl Chip Polyurethane Floors should be considered. Urethane Concrete Flooring Systems are an excellent alternative for heavy-duty food processing applications requiring greater mechanical strength, and our Decorative Epoxy flooring systems are suitable for applications not requiring fast cure time or thermal shock protection.
