Creature Comforts

Comfort floors or cushioned floors are made up of a cork or rubber mat and then overlaid with a coloured polyurethane base coat and a PU top coat, sometimes called liquid vinyl. They are seamless, extremely hygienic and easy to clean.

Overview

Comfort floors or cushioned floors are seamless resin floors made up of layers of polyurethane and installed directly onto a primed substrata, rubber mat underlay or a poured cork (depending on the manufacturer). The underlay gives the floor some added elasticity, added cushioning and noise reduction. They are popular  in both the domestic and commercial environments. They are extremely hygienic, and very easy to clean given the smooth finish. There are a number of products on the market from many of the large flooring manufacturers.

 

Characteristics and Benefits; Seamless, easy to clean, hygienic,

System Build up

As with all flooring systems, the condition of the sub strata is most important. The first stage of the process is to prepare the sub base, ensuring that it is smooth and free of dust and sealing the surface with a suitable epoxy primer.

A rubber matt (Comfort Floor Pro) or a cork matt is adhered or poured onto the surface to give that little bit of cushion. A pore filler is applied to the cushioned surface. Once the cushioning sub strata this has cured, a polyurethane base coat is applied to the surface, before installing the final polyurethane finishing coat.

These floors are sometimes referred to as liquid vinyl.

A comfort or cushioned floor is a non breathable surface, that is air cannot travel from a concrete slab (the substrata)  and permeate out. A common problem during the installation process is outgassing. This is where air tries to escape from the surface before the epoxy or polyurethane coat has had time to cure. This causes very small bubbles to appear on the surface, that must be dealt with before the final coats go down.
