How do I apply a liquid plastic floor?

A plastic floor can also be applied in liquid form, then the material forms the closest possible connection with the substrate. Water could still run under a PVC floor, but a liquid plastic has a completely insulating effect if it is really applied over the entire area. High-quality materials are also very robust and can withstand a wide range of mechanical loads. And the aesthetics don't suffer either.

That speaks for the liquid plastic floor

We have already mentioned the most important advantage: the perfect protection of the substrate from all kinds of liquids. There are even chemical-resistant materials that are used in appropriate warehouses. The surfaces are extremely easy to care for.

Some liquid coverings, which naturally harden when they dry, are even suitable for being driven over with a forklift. Others look really nice, they serve as eye-flattering decorations on the terrace and balcony. Here is a list of possible rooms:

  • washrooms
  • Warehouses
  • Balconies
  • Terraces
  • Stairways
  • Storage rooms
  • workshops

This is how you apply your plastic floor in liquid form

As always, when you apply a coat of paint, you first need a clean, dry, stable and grease-free surface. Anything that is loose and flaking must definitely be removed! An existing coat of paint should be sanded carefully beforehand to improve adhesion. Here we go:

Stir the liquid plastic bottom thoroughly before using it. Then apply the first layer evenly on the floor. Let it dry and possibly add one to three more layers.

The following rule of thumb applies: the more the plastic flooring is used later, the more layers you will need. However, there is always the end of a certain thickness: Observe the instructions for use!

How can I paint my plastic floor liquid??

You can use several different tools to distribute your liquid plastic flooring. Large tools are of course also recommended for large areas. Here is a selection of the options:

  • wider flat brush
  • large radiator brush
  • large paint roller
  • wide paint brush (China bristles)

Of course, you can also switch between the different tools in order to get into all corners with your plastic. Work as quickly as possible so as not to tear any grooves in the drying material.
