Caring for elastic coating
The impact of negative factors
Although smooth and elastic solid surface coatings determine their relatively high resistance to various aggressive environments, these water supply, we also have "enemies". The most powerful destructive to elastiki is abrasive. Once on the surface of the soles of our shoes with dirt streets, abrasive particles are like Emery, repeatedly accelerating depreciation floor covering. Typically, high elastic surface coatings in the manufacture of security film. The heterogeneous PVH-pokryty prestigious brands are thin protective layer, most educated hard polyurethane film, the linoleumov as a "guardian angel" is usually akrilatnaya compositions. Surface Protection designed to improve both coverage and durability make it immune to pollution. Particles coated destroy protective film and increase surface roughness floor, thereby increasing its usage and increasing the coupling with other pollutants, have domestic origin. Therefore, on the floor, damaged material remain stains from red wine, coffee, intensely colored sauces, etc. The elastic coating, production technology that provides a protective layer of, signed with the even faster.
Understand that elastic coating highly resistant to the actions of reactive materials. For example, the natural linoleum "not afraid" of alcohol, vegetable and animal fats, is resistant to 5% acetic, citric acid and milk, 2% hydrogen peroxide. But it is easy to see that the list of chemicals included severely diluted acid. The more concentrated acidic environment is detrimental to a natural elastikov. The same applies to alkalis. The polyvinyl, in comparison with natural surfaces, he has shown great resistance to alkali and acid. But for the actions of acetone and other solvents containing volatile hydrocarbons equally volatile and natural and artificial elastiki. The exceptions are specialized PVH-pokrytiya intended for use in chemical laboratories. In addition, polyvinyl sensitive to high temperatures. Heating the floor to 45 ° C is considered a major test for the material.
Terms of the operation and maintenance
As the elastic cover damage caused by particle material contained in the ground, first and foremost, we must consider that the street dirt not reach the premises. How to do this is described in the chapter on textile coatings.
The next step for the long-term preservation floor covering -sistematicheskaya cleaning the floor, which should be carried out on a more-than the better ". Incidentally, one of the characteristics of elastic coating is that their regular hygiene services is not a difficult one, confined to remove dust with a vacuum cleaner and slightly wet cleaning. If we get on the floor of their local pollution removed by pyatnovyvoditelya and woven napkins. To clean the shallow contamination elastic coating remover used the same as for carpets. After removing surface stains should be washed with purified water. As a preventive measure, it is recommended to use special polishes, on the floor creating a thin protective film. Polishes be on the safe floor through a special broomstick, or a few added to the water and evenly distributed to meet at the end of the harvest.
The frequency of the operation of flexible coatings determined arbitrarily, as a stain on the floor that can not be disposed in the regular cleaning. As a general cleaning is using powerful cleaners, "striperov and professional polishing technology for this important procedure specialists from kliningovoy firm. "Stripery" capable of dissolving any pollution, even stubborn as cement, synthetic adhesives, nail polish, chewing gum. But for cleaner prejudicial to the surface, it's essential to select "Striper" on the composition and spread it to the desired concentration. For natural floor coverings not use acid cleaners. Regarding "striperov", which is alkaline, the concentration should not exceed pH9. In regard to cleaning products at 1 meter, it must be said that to clean the rubber coating of approximately two times greater than for linoleum and PVC. This is a relatively high porosity rubber. Exceptions include rubber coating from some manufacturers, which face no time, and therefore adhesion to any pollutants. To clean these coats neither the "stripery" no remover. In particular the German company FREUDENBERG products.
The general cleaning was obespylivanii cover of "stripera and rubbing it into surface coatings. Black made with odnodiskovyh polishing machines or special shvabr-mopov. Within 10 to 15 minutes, "striper" left on the floor in order to be able to dilute cleaner deeply vevshiesya pollution, then cleaner and Hélène cover the dirt removed from a vacuum cleaner or detergent vodososom and thoroughly wash the floor with clean water.
The set of activities related to the professional services is a flexible cover of preparations for the long-protected area. Handling defensive preparations made after three hours after the general cleaning. This time it is necessary to cover the surface completely dry.
Currently, as a protective coating for elastikov use mastic with varying degrees of excellent. Mastika "block" and then smooths rough areas on the floor, thus preventing the entry of a pollutant. In addition, creating a protective surface film, paste, increases resistance to abrasion floor.
Depending on the composition, divided into putty wax and polymer. The positive qualities paste wax should be their relative cheapness, availability and the perfect use of technology. Disadvantages : low durability and lack of coverage in those areas, which opened in the wall. Polymer putty most expensive wax, but retain the security of the much longer and, because of their high plasticity easily be on the elastic coating placed on the walls of the factory. Furthermore, as the product of artificial origin polymer putty in the production process may acquire additional mineral quality, which - antistatichnost, bactericidal and fungicidal effect, Anti properties to a degree matovosti or excellent, etc. Even more important, however, that plastic putty more economical to use. Usually they are two, at least four layers. The wax coating can be six or even eight walks. To maximize the protective effect of polymer putty cause so that the first layer to go across the light beam and the second on the beam, perpendicular to the first. This allows the surface to conceal completely, without "propleshin."
Still on the subject of protection of elastic floor, it must be said that recently appeared on the Russian market, two special polyurethane varnish used to improve durability and women prone to extreme operational loads. The original features of the product include high economic effect of its use on the premises of the high road, especially where it is not stored on the floor of a high homogeneous PVH-pokrytie without protective polyurethane layer. Usually, such coverage is from 5 to 6. e. 1 meter, while his counterpart with polyurethane plant protection costs the buyer on average twice as much. If coated with polyurethane to protect the lacquer, two, the operation would cost to the customer in January. e. 1 meter, with polyurethane varnish much larger than the tensile plastic putty.
How often should update surface protection, formed mastic? Where coating speed, evenly distributed throughout the floor, it makes sense to replace full protective layer and removing the old putty every one to three months. Usually, such operations resort if no paste, a 50% floor. When surface coating affects the wear and uneven, the so-called experts are "tracks" dilapidated stations protective layer appropriate "repair". To this end, "track" is peeled from the old putty to the surface and cause a new defence. "Repair" putty to where it sterlas at 20 - 30% of the field. Where paste retain their protective properties, but its surface area created local air-only special preparations remove contaminated surface layer of putty, then restore it.
Good results are achieved when the daily care of the floor covered with mastic used special tools, which also removes light pollution and enhance the protective surface layer putty. Such prevention paste can be restored only once in five months.
