industrial coatings and polished concrete flooring systems

Macrylex

For completing new industrial floor coating projects and refurbishments on a tight deadline, reactive resins are the product of choice. Reactive resins differ from other floor resurfacing and repair materials because they contain the monomer Methyl methacrylate (MMA).

MMA provides allows an ultra-fast cure time and super-tough physical characteristics. In fact, Düraamen’s Macrylex floor coating system is ready to use in as little as two hours after its application. Additionally, MMA floor coatings can cure in temperatures as low as 40°F.

The Macrylex Floor System provides maximum protection against abrasions, wear, stains, thermal shock and impacts. Macrylex also provides maximum versatility as it can be finished as a solid color, have resin chips added or in decorative quartz which provides anti slip properties. Its seamless finish is easy to clean and maintain.

Because the Macrylex reactive resin floor system was engineered to withstand the harshest industrial and manufacturing environments, It can be used anywhere that a tough floor needs to be installed with minimal down time. Light manufacturing facilities, hospitals, hospitality, commercial, retail, labs, and chemical plants are just a few applications where Macrylex is an effective flooring solution.

Our Macrylex line of products consist of:

  • Macrylex B18: methyl methacrylate binder / bodycoat
  • Macrylex S26: methyl methacrylate resin topcoat
  • Macrylex P12: methyl methacrylate primer
  • Macrylex F32: methyl methacrylate resin used for waterproofing and leveling the substrate
  • Macrylex H00: dibenzoyl peroxide hardener—when mixed with reactive resin it promotes the hardening of the flooring system.
  • Macrylex Crack Sealer: methyl methacrylate resin sealer used for filling cracks and fortifying porous concrete.

Macrylex H00 | dibenzoyl peroxide hardener

Macrylex H00 is a dry white powder made up of 50% BPO, Dibenzoyl Peroxide. It must be mixed thoroughly with Macrylex resins before adding other fillers and/or aggregates to ensure the hardening of the mixed materials. Any exception to this mixing sequence must be confirmed with Duraamen Technical Representative.

Macrylex H00 is soluble in Macrylex resin. After mixing the powder into the reactive resin the reaction initiates the polymerization reaction that leads to the hardening process of the floor system.
