We search far and wide for materials that offer an order-of-magnitude improvement over traditional means and methods of construction in cost, sustainability or install-ability. In the resinous flooring world, the product universe is filled with toxic materials that emit nasty VOC's are dangerous for workmen to install and dangerous for building occupants to breathe.
Made from natural ingredients - castor oil and gypsum- plasticized gypsum is the eco-friendly, NON-EPOXY floor solution!
Plasticized gypsum was invented in the 1990's and has a long history of successful use in the oil and gas industry, in frac tanks, waterproofing applications and linings in seriously harsh environments. The coatings have been used on ships at sea as traffic membranes with salt-spray exposure and constant vehicle traffic. This material WAY outperforms traditional epoxies in adhesion and elongation. It generally requires less surface prep, sticks to everything and will not pop loose. It's flexible, will not shatter and can take some movement of the substrate. It's tenacious bond, tough wearability and superior chemical resistance makes this material perfect for industrial flooring.
Benefits of Plasticized Gypsum:
Where the rubber meets the floor is the final layer in our system. Our top coat is not some off the shelf, thin material that will fade or amber like traditional epoxies. We use only industrial grade, UV-stable, chemical and hot-tire resistant materials. This final coat gives a glossy appearance that is easy to maintain and will maintain its fantastic look over time.
This is THE leading, sustainable flooring solution made tough from natural ingredients.
