The popularity or the demand for the seamless floor around the world started in 1930’s. But fragrance for seamless reached India in the mid 1980’s and 1990’s it has bought a demand for seamless floors like Epoxy and Polyurethane. The usage of tiles and stones in the industries were slowly fading and monolithic floors have taken its place.
But due to the increased globalization and restructuring the floor coating industry, a shift in the industry trends is observed owing to rapid economic growth.
Moreover, the growth in population in the country is expected to boost the demand for commercial and industrial infrastructure, which in turn is projected to drive the floor coating market.
Modernizing the infrastructure of the existing plants to meet the demands of the modern era was the difficult phase especially the flooring which takes minimum 7 days to 28 days for the 100% curing. This is the period where people are looking for quick curing floor without disturbing much of their production period. So, Methyl Methacrylate is one of the products that will have 100% percent mechanical strength in 1 hour after their application.
