NOVOFLOOR POINT ELASTIC
Point-elastic sports floor system
The point-elastic sports floor system is a set of polyurethane resin based materials for making elastic, multilayer sports floor systems. It is designed for professional indoor use in such objects as sports halls, gymnasiums, recreational rooms, body building gyms, health care facilities (e.g. physical rehabilitation rooms), etc. It is applied directly to concrete substrates.
The advantages of the floor are: high elasticity, good efficient damping of impact energy, high coefficient of friction, aesthetic appearance due to many available topcoat colour compositions, seamless and easy to clean.
The floor system consists of rubber granulate mat. Thickness of rubber granulate mat is 7 mm. This mat has very specific volumetric weight (using another type of mat of comparable thickness can cause failure to comply with the requirements of the standard). Rubber granulate mat is glued by NOVOFLOOR P21 adhesive to the substrate (which has been primed by NOVOFLOOR P10 sealer). In next step mat is sealed by NOVOFLOOR P32. After preparing the surface in the described manner, a layer of the NOVOFLOOR P42 elastic self-levelling polyurethane coating is applied. Once NOVOFLOOR P42 has cured, the pitch lines can be set. The surface of NOVOFLOOR P42 shall be painted with a NOVOFLOOR P66W water-borne coloured topcoat, which gives the abrasion and matt values required by EU standards. The next stage involves painting the pitch lines with NOVOFLOOR P68.
The thickness of the point-elastic sports floor is ca 9 mm. In case of fitness, where an investor does not require compliance with the European Standard, 4 mm rubber granulate mat could be used and the total thickness of system is ca 6 mm (special, additional mats have to use in case of bodybuilding gym areas).
