you want a seamless high end finish that is easy to maintain,
durable, and very hard wearing then HTC Superfloor is the answer.
After all the years and thousands of square metres of tiles
that we have laid, HTC Superfloor is still our favourite type
of floor. The concept is straight forward, the result? - a floor
with natural appearance that’s aesthetically pleasing.
It works incredibly well in either a domestic or commercial
environment with many advantages over other types of floors
Superfloor can also be coloured with either water based or solvent
based dyes to give your floor a translucent appearance with
a colouring of your choice. From garage floors to bedroom floors
the concept of Superfloor is the future especially when combined
with under floor heating.
major U.K companies are seeing the advantages of Superfloor
. Supermarkets for one see a huge difference in lead times
before opening a store. Where traditionally terrazzo is
used which involves concrete slab, screed, terrazzo tile
then grinding Superfloor only requires the concrete then
grinding. This not only saves the cost of the screed and
tile for the supermarket it also produces a finish that
is easier to maintain and that has better slip resistance.
are four different concepts to HTC Superfloor:
Platinum - This is
the most popular of the four and involves the most stages
of grinding. It exposes all the aggregate and the end result
is a durable floor with a glossy appearance that also reflects
Gold is the next concept.
This leaves out the first grinding stage which leaves the
floor showing much less aggregate. This is an ideal finish
if the floor is already even and level, the surface finish
is almost as high as platinum.
Silver is basically the same
concept as platinum but without the polishing. All the aggregate
shows but you are left with a matt finish.
Bronze is by far
the hardest of the four concepts to achieve. It uses the
fewest grinding and polishing stages because the concept
of this finish is that you only grind and polish the top
layer of the concrete, the aggregate is not shown. This
can be very difficult on an un even floor because the high
spots can expose aggregate which is unwanted.
Wood Grinding is certainly a step forward in the world
of wood preparation and wood floor finishing. The problems caused
by traditional floor sanders are solved with this concept. The
main issues with traditional machines are stop start marks,
machine digging in when turned in the corner of rooms and sanding
against the grain. All of these issues are solved with EZ
We can get within 20mm of wall’s and then use edge working
machines where we can get within 3mm. When combined with an
extractor the grinding is also virtually dust free. So you can
now grind rough planks to parquet floors with a planetary system
fitted with either diamonds or sand paper, the system can also
be used to oil the floor as well.
planetary machines are ideal for prepping floors. They can remove
epoxy, carpet adhesive, tile adhesive, self levelling compound,
paint and many other types of surfaces. Super prep differs from
other types of surface removal because it doesn’t damage
the underlying surface unlike scarifying or shot blasting.
You can also get a lot closer to the perimeter of the room which
isn’t normally possible with the other two concepts of
removal. Once the floor is ground you are left with a smooth
surface which will take a new covering or paint and which will
provide an excellent key.
Flooring contractors look towards having perfectly smooth floors
to lay coverings on and HTC Superprep is the
ideal solution for this. The
main problem with scarifying and shot blasting is you cannot
level a floor, the surface may well also require grinding or
self levelling to rectify the unevenness.
One major concern again is they generate a lot of dust, vibration
Superprep is different , you can prepare floors
whilst other works carry on. Dust is not an issue because
it is extracted out the same way as if you were concrete
polishing, vibration and noise are also kept to a minimum.
