Among the competitive advantages of the composition, one should highlight its durability, an excellent indicator of elasticity, no shrinkage and resistance to moisture. After drying, a film is formed that does not lose its qualities under extreme temperature loads and under the influence of aggressive environmental factors.

It is noteworthy that such a mixture has increased resistance to chemical reagents and mechanical stress, therefore it is actively used in public and industrial premises. As for apartments and private houses, the use of polyurethane mixtures is impractical due to their high cost and the absence of heavy loads on the floor.
  3. Acrylic floor enamel - with the ability to form a wear-resistant film on the working surface, characterized by amazing elasticity.
