An Ode resin floor can take a beating
Ode resin floors were once developed for companies and industries. This means that an Ode floor is designed for very intensive use.
Due to the elasticity, the floor is scratch resistant, but no floor is 100% scratch-free. Over time, small scratches and/or smears will become visible in the top layer. This is inherent to the use of a floor in general and therefore also occurs with an Ode resin floor. We advise placing white felt under all furniture to prevent possible scratches. It is true that due to the tough elastic properties of seamless floors, damage is less visible. By keeping the floor clean, light damage is less noticeable.
Is an Ode resin floor colorfast?
By using high-quality natural color pigments, the Ode resin floors are 100% UV resistant, i.e. under the influence of sunlight, the Ode floor will not discolor.
We recommend use of carpets and mats with an underlay that is produced without dye. There is a chance that tannins, antioxidants, plasticizers, tannic acid and dyes are present in these rubber, wood and carpet products. These fabrics can seep into the floor and cause stains. To prevent a reaction on the floor of these fabrics, we recommend using felt pads under rubber, wood and carpet products.

The Ode resin floor is ideal in combination with underfloor heating. The heat-conducting properties of the Ode floor ensure that the floor heats up quickly and therefore always feels comfortable. The faster warm-up time also results in lower energy costs.
How is an Ode resin floor applied?
An Ode floor is applied in liquid form and consists on average of 4 layers. The application of a seamless floor is labor intensive and the work must be spread over several days. Our own professionals need 5 days to apply the seamless floor.
After the last layer has been applied, the floor can be walked on after 12 hours and can take heavy weight after 48 hours.
Ode to green
Ode uses natural, non-rare raw materials. The renewable, responsibly sourced raw materials are based on biopolymers, extracted from plant seeds. Ultimately, we strive to work only with natural raw materials.
Furthermore, Ode does not use organic solvents and we work with water-based products.
Speaking of sustainable; Ode sustainable floors have a technical lifespan of about 30 years! A new layer can be applied to the existing Ode floor or, if desired, a different type of floor can be laid. In this case, an Ode resin floor is used as a subfloor and has, therefore, an indefinite life. That makes an Ode seamless floor very durable.
