About Resinous Flooring: Kwörtz Flooring

Resinous Flooring: Kwörtz Flooring

Kwörtz flooring system is a seamless decorative resin flooring system consisting of clear, 100% solids epoxy resin filled with a variety of graded quartz, marble or ceramic fillers which can be modified to create the best design mix for ideal performance and appearance. A wide selection of gloss and satin finish coats are available for varying appearance and exposure requirements. The finished flooring system can be textured or smooth as per the specifications. The decorative quartz aggregates are available in a series of pre-blended patterns or solid colors. Custom color blends are available subject to approval, minimum quantity requirements, and lead time for production.

Crack-free installations of Kwörtz flooring system can be achieved when installed in conjunction with a Perdüre FE80 and Perdüre MVT. An integral cove base can be installed in areas requiring seamless wall to floor coating.

Key Considerations:

  • On or below grade installation must have an efficient vapor barrier under the slab
  • Special treatments are necessary where hydrostatic pressure or
    moisture vapor transmission may be present
  • Substrate temperature must be a minimum of 550F
    (low temperature cure system available upon request)
  • Substrate must be free of dirt, waxes, curing agents, and other foreign materials
  • All control joints and expansion joints in the substrate must be revealed with
    the appropriate divider strips in the topping

Kwörtz flooring system can be installed in different thickness and top coated with 100% epoxy resin, Novolac epoxy resin or solvent based polyurethane depending upon the performance requirements and application environments.
