Can a resin floor affect the thermal transmittance of a floor heating? Oltremateria resin surfaces ensure perfect thermal conductivity.
In the area of heating, the new energy saving technologies qualified in class A are mostly those consisting of radiant systems that are placed in the floor.
They are certainly very different from those made in the past (the classic wall elements).
The difference is due both to how the heating circuit is distributed and to the temperature of the water in the system, which is of another kind.
Clearly there is no unique way to create the underfloor heating system but the most used one requires that the heating coil is covered with cement that is cast up to achieve a thickness of 4-6 cm.
In the whole it is also included the preparation of a reinforcing metal mesh and, sometimes, additional reinforcement fibers that are inserted directly into the dough.
A pressing material is applied to insulate the substrate along the perimeter, right along the walls.
This allows the substrate to dilate excessively avoiding damage related to the compression phenomenon.
When casting, expansion joints are also provided.
The question that arises is whether such a heating can then be coated with a resin surface without affecting the performance of the same.
In fact, when using underfloor heating, thermal conduction is important.
The eco-sustainable continuous surfaces Oltremateria, characterized by a thickness of only 3 mm. , have always been used to cover every type of flooring, including those that have underfloor heating systems.
This is because Oltremateria resin surfaces are certified for radiant flooring.
It has been proven that they have a Lambda coefficient of λ=0, 63 (the ability of the material to transmit heat) which is a higher value than traditional resin floors and more than double that of a wooden surface.
This ensures high thermal conductivity, lower consumption and, consequently, better performance of the plant.
