Their ComfortFloor systems have been designed to be fire-resistant, with good impact sound insulation and noise absorbance. They are also easy to clean and maintain with great wear and impact resistance. Sika ComfortFloor has a liquid application which means that it is possible to achieve a seamless floor finish with a unique design. Described as ‘liquid applied vinyl’ the possibilities are endless! Especially when you take into account that Sika has 70 standard ComfortFloor colours available, with the ability to match RAL, BS, NCS and Pantone colours. This design flexibility will ensure that corporate colours can be incorporated into the floor, or the floor can be colour matched to walls and furniture.

The specific Sikafloor PS23, PS24, PS25, PS26 and PS27 systems address defined environmental needs, whether it’s reducing impact noise, resistance to moisture and chemicals or long-lasting durability for heavy traffic areas and furniture stress. Read more about these systems below.

Sika’s ComfortFloor system is also refered to as ‘PS23’ on the Sika website. It is a great solution for flooring in residential, public or commercial buildings. They recommend using the Comfortable PS23 system for residential stairs and hallways, shopping areas, offices and meeting rooms, cafeterias, classrooms and many more. The ComfortFloor system is comfortable to walk or stand on, contributes to a healthy indoor environment as no dust can bind nor will any bacteria or fungus be able to grow.

The system build-up contains three layers and the total thickness of the floor will range from 2-3 mm.

Use Sikafloor 161 primer. It is a two-part, low viscosity epoxy resin and levelling mortar for Sikafloor systems. It has excellent bond strength with good penetration. Follow up the primer by a wear layer consisting off Sikafloor 330. Sikafloor 330 is a two-part, solvent-free self-smoothing PUR resin. As it is permanently elastic, it is great for crack bridging. To finish the SikaFloor Comfort PS23 system, apply the mandatory seal coat of Sikafloor 305 W. For an anti-slip finish, Sika Anti Slip Agent can be added to the final coat. Sikafloor 305 W will provide a matt seal coat with excellent UV resistance. It is also non-yellowing, very easy to clean with a low odour.

System Build-Up Overview:

Primer: Sikafloor 161

Base coat: Sikafloor 330

Sealer: Sikafloor 305 W

Total system thickness: ca. 2–3 mm

sika-ps25

Sika’s ComfortFloor Pro system is also referred to as ComfortFloor ‘PS25’ on the Sika website. The features are similar to the ComfortFloor PS23 system above, but offers additional impact resistance and high impact noise reduction. Sika recommend using this flooring system in residential, public and commercial buildings where high impact noise reduction is a special requirement. The ComfortFloor Pro system has previously been used in libraries, art galleries, office buildings, operating theatres and high schools. Just like the ComfortFloor system, it contributes to a healthy indoor environment as dust cannot bind and fungus or bacteria won’t be able to grow.

The system build-up contains five layers and the total thickness of the finished floor will range from 6-7mm.

To start the system build-up, begin with Sikafloor Comfort Adhesive. It is used to adhere the next layer to concrete and cementitious screeds. There is no shrinking after curing and it is non-flammable. The next layer will be Sikafloor Comfort Regupol 6015H. It is a prefabricated rubber shockpad that will give the ComfortFloor Pro system its additional impact resistance and high impact noise reduction. As a pore sealer, use Sikafloor Comfort Porefiller. It is a two-part total solids PUR used for sealing and levelling the prefabricated Regupol sheets. After this different priming system, the ComfortFloor Pro build-up system follows the same final layers as the ComforFloor system. Follow up this three-part system with a wear layer of Sikafloor 330 and finish with a seal coat of Sikafloor 305 W.
