If you are in the need of floor resurfacing, you will find that you would be better off with the kind that is a floor resurfacing self leveler. As you will see, there are a number of reasons for this.

Due to the many interior designers who love the look, concrete floors are now the flooring of choice for commercial as well as even residential use. The best reasons for this are that since the newer artistic designs have risen, humans have become more conscious of their world, and durable flooring is now considered “green flooring”.

Thus, while remodeling and renovation of the existing building, there often already exists vinyl tiles or “glue on” carpeting that must be removed to install the new concrete flooring. That adhesive that then remains is called cutback adhesive, and unfortunately it is one of the utmost difficult substances to remove from the concrete. Chances are just removal of it could pose serious health concerns since it must be blasted, sanded, or ground off, and that may entail the release of asbestos. Granted that’s what solvents were created for, however solvents smell too much to be utilized in an occupied building, and then there are always the VOCs, or Volatile Organic Compounds. If a building utilizes such solvents that will significantly affect the LEED points.

Thus prior to using floor resurfacing self leveler products the contractor must be sure to remove all loose adhesive. Once thoroughly removed then concrete resurfacing may begin. Of course everyone knows for sure that there is no better concrete product than Silikal.

Now at this point you should understand why a self leveling product is so important. Each of the minute particles of adhesive that was allowed to remain on the substrate must be completely and painstakingly covered, and the Silikal itself must adhere and so thoroughly bond that it will never even have the opportunity to come apart. However as Silikal is totally seamless, completely non porous and won’t ever even harbor a pinhole in it, you can be sure that it will remain in place for as long as your building stands. The reason for this is that Silikal is monolithic through and through, thus when it takes a bite out of your concrete it’s there forever.

With Silikal, you will get a beautiful floor that looks as good years from now as the day it was installed. Just remember that only Silikal uses enhanced MMA to bring beauty with your floor resurfacing self leveler.
