Resin flooring is a combination of chemicals that, when mixed together, form a chemically hardened plastic-like surface. While there are many different types of resin floors to choose from, the most common types of flooring resins are epoxy and polyurethane resins.

and logistics centers with heavy forklift traffic. Polyurethane floors are usually softer and more elastic, which makes them more resistant to scratching as their elasticity tends to absorb some of the impact. The elasticity of PU floors also makes them a preferred choice in freezing chambers where the storage temperature can reach -30 degrees Celsius (-22 F). They are also a good choice for multideck car-parks since the elastic coating can act as a waterproofing and crack-bridging layer.
