FAQ's

How long is the processing time? (after mixing)
The processing times of the Arturo products differ from product to product. For most Arturo products, there is a processing time of at least 20 minutes. There are products (1 component or water-based) that have a longer processing time. For the processing time per product, please refer to the product documentation.

How long should the components be mixed?
With two-component products, a minimum mixing time of 2 minutes should be respected. Is there a 3rd component added than it should be mixed at least 1 minute additionally. A good mixture provides a consistent product and gives the best results.

How fast can a resin floor be used?
In general, after applying the last layer, the floor can be charged mechanically after 3 x 24 hours and after 7 x 24 hours chemically and with water.

Is a resin floor resistant to everything?
No, a resin floor is not resistant to everything. It is however true that most of the synthetic resin floors to a greater or lesser extent are chemically resistant. There will always substances or products which the floor is unable to withstand. For specific chemical resistancies, please refer to the chemical resistance lists on the website.

Is a primer always necessary?
No, a primer is not always necessary. For the adhesion, a primer is not necessary. Under mortar, mastic and pebble floors Unipro recommends a primer. Under coating floors advises Unipro in special situations to use a primer.

Substrates must always blasted / sanded?
No, not all substrates must be blasted. Unipro recommends dense, non-absorbent substrates to be sanded or blasted. Also soiled substrates should be (flame)blasted, with the ultimate objective, to obtain good adhesion to the subfloor.

What is the total duration of the application of a flooring system?
This is different for each system. There are systems that are applied in two days (coating), but the application of a system can also take 4 to 5 days (e.g. mortar floors with a seal layer).

What is the difference between a self levelling floor and a coating?
The main differences are the thickness and application method. Self-levelling floors have are a minimum thickness of 1 mm and the material can be poured. Coating Floors are floors with a maximum thickness of 0.5 mm. These floors are applied with of a roller.

Are all colours available?
