How durable is it?
Ecoflor® is known for its durability, making it a popular choice for various surfaces, including floors, walls, stairs and countertops. Its durability is attributed to several key factors:
Resistance to Cracking: Ecoflor® creates a seamless and flexible surface that is less prone to cracking compared to traditional materials like tiles or concrete. This flexibility helps it withstand slight movements in the substrate, reducing the risk of cracks.
Hardness and Wear Resistance: Once properly cured and sealed, Ecoflor® forms a hard and resilient surface. This hardness contributes to its resistance against wear and tear, making it suitable for high-traffic areas in both residential and commercial spaces.
Versatility: Ecoflor's versatility allows it to be applied to various surfaces, including existing tiles, concrete, or even furniture. This adaptability contributes to its overall durability as it can be seamlessly integrated into different environments.
Longevity: When installed and maintained correctly, Ecoflor® can have a long lifespan. Proper application, sealing, and regular maintenance contribute to its overall durability and longevity.
It's important to note that the durability of Ecoflor® also depends on the selection of the products, the expertise of the installer, and adherence to recommended application and maintenance guidelines, and consulting with professionals during installation can enhance the durability of Ecoflor® surfaces.
Does it crack?
Ecoflor® inherently resists cracking, yet it's crucial for the installer to be aware of potential substrate joins movement, as any cracking in those areas may reflect through the Ecoflor® finish.

Is it stain proof?
The sealers applied to the Ecoflor® MicroConcrete System offer stain resistance but are not entirely stain-proof. They provide a limited timeframe to address staining agents on the surface. Prevent contact with staining substances like food colouring, oil, grease, or paint. Swiftly wipe off any spills, ensuring they do not penetrate. Exercise caution with hot items, such as matches or cigarettes, to prevent direct contact with the floor.
Rubber feet on tables and chairs are recognised for releasing substances that may cause a yellowish stain on floors.
Is it scratch proof?
The sealers applied to the Ecoflor® Micro Concrete System do provide scratch resistance, but they are not scratch proof. Avoid sliding heavy objects directly over the floor; consider using cardboard sheets or similar protection. Always utilise appropriate glides, rollers, castors, and furniture bearing pads or felt pads to prevent scratches or indentations.
