Reliable independent organizations verify that AcryliCon is so uniquely different from Epoxy and other resin products that AcryliCon has been given a resin class category of its own. Backed by a 10-Year to Lifetime Warranty, AcryliCon proves to be the strongest, longest-lasting and most cleanable resin flooring product in the world.
How AcryliCon Saves Money
AcryliCon's installations from the 1970's are still looking great today. We offer a 10 Year Performance Warranty as well as Lifetime Product Warranty. Proven real world life-expectancy is well over 20 years.
With each layer of the system chemically fusing together and our primer penetrating deep into the substrate, there is no risk of delamination - Other products only mechanically bond. Guaranteed.
Quick and Easy to Install
Unlike other resin floors, which can take days or weeks to cure and become chemically resistance, AcryliCon take under 2 hours - so you can get back to work on an AcryliCon floor almost immediately after installation.
HSE Approve Slip-Resistance
Keeping your staff safe and your company legal, AcryliCon keeps workplace safety a key priority.
High Compressive Strength
AcryliCon has outstanding durability and cleanability - similar to stainless steel - which makes the floor easy to keep clean and less likely to mark or wear. Repairs and costly maintenance become a non-issue when using AcryliCon.
Food factories, dairies, pharmacies, kitchens and retail shops know how important it is to keep floors clean and avoid bad smells caused by bacteria. AcryliCon's unique ability to chemically bond and its non-porous nature saves time and money while helping our customers pass those critical audits.
AcryliCon resin chemically bonds with its own layers and into the concreate substrate. Other resin flooring products mechanically bond, which leads to delamination and significant maintenance repercussions.
AcryliCon is certified by the many of the world’s most renowned independent agencies including quality control, emission control, indoor air quality, food contact material, fire safety and many others.
DOES ACRYLICON ACTUALLY SAVE MONEY?
Yes, it does. In addition to the multiple areas of cost benefits, AcryliCon customers save a tremendous amount of money on flooring repairs because they simply last longer. Below is an independent 10-year study showing how AcryliCon saves real money on repairs.

WHY IS EPOXY AND PU DIFFICULT TO REPAIR?
It has been found, however, that maintenance only makes Epoxy and PU worse. Thermo-Set resins cannot chemically bond which means there is no way for the new, repaired Epoxy to bond with the old, existing Epoxy. Problems become intensified with maintenance because additional joint lines are continually added into a supposed-to-be jointless floor.
AcryliCon (Thermo-Plastic resin) is a chemically bonding resin, making it repairable at any time in the future without adding needless joint-lines into a flooring system. This is just one of the many reasons why AcryliCon stands behind its product with a 10-Year to Lifetime Warranty.
Thermo-Set resins such as Epoxy and PU are of the cheapest resins to produce which tends to attract businesses looking to cut costs. However, they quickly become porous and brittle causing them to crack and delaminate which leads to costly, intensive maintenance making it difficult to achieve operational objectives and to pass GMP, ISO and other important audits. The “cheapest” floors then become the “most expensive”.
