WEARMAX® Transparent System
The fast, robust solution for a wide range of applications
Our transparent system: ideal for renovating and care of heavily worn floors.
Restores the original appearance of wood or resilient floor coverings.
Due to its outstanding technical properties, WEARMAX® Transparent can be used on almost any surface such as plastic / PVC, linoleum, synthetic rubber flooring, and rubber, as well as wooden and parquet floors.
The unique technology from WEARMAX ® High-Performance Ceramic Coating anchors 120 million ceramic particles per square meter floating on the surface in a flexible paint system.
During processing, a wafer-thin ceramic layer that cannot be seen with the naked eye is applied. It protects the floor highly effective against signs of wear, abrasion, and soiling and improves slip resistance.
Take advantage of the following advantages:
· Largely resistant to disinfectants (ask for our positive list of disinfectants)
· Significant extension of the service life of existing, heavily worn floors
· Long-term protection against wear and tear, abrasion and signs of wear
· Increased scratch resistance in the end surface
· Positive effects on the slip resistance class
· Less re-soiling
· Economical and environmentally friendly
Three layers in one. Quick to apply and economical
“Our Transparent System (3 in 1 product): ideal for the renovation of heavily worn floors. Restores the original look of wood or resilient floor coverings. ”
The Transparent System consists of three layers: the primer, the ceramic layer and the top layer.
Here we show you the main steps of the processing process. Watch the video on our Youtube channel to follow the entire process of application on a 40 year old linoleum floor in detail.
The first layer
WEARMAX ® Universal Primer is applied with a roller on a clean, sanded and neutralized floor.
The second layer
<p> Machine mixed with hardener and water, WEARMAX <sup> ® </sup> Ceramic is applied three hours after applying the primer with a roller and T-bar. </p>
Die top layer
Machine mixed with hardener, WEARMAX ® Top Coat is applied after the approx. 3-hour drying time of the previous layer with a roller (hydro-flow roller). The floor is therefore restricted after eight hours and completely usable after 72 hours. The final chemical hardness is reached after eight to ten days.
Let´s do this!
In our video you can see all processing steps of the WEARMAX ® Transparent System. The processing stages depend on the condition of the original subsurface, so they vary from project to project.

SUCCESS STORIES OF OUR CUSTOMERS
Case study: Premiere League Club
Sports and event stadiums are iconic across the UK and are home to some of the premier league’s biggest clubs.
With thousands of fans and staff present on match days and stadium tours becoming increasingly popular, these venues are often subject to heavy foot and vehicle traffic.
Many stadiums opt for a floor covering made of rubber – a robust floor covering that is easy on the joints, easy to lay and is well suited for large venues. Despite its longevity, the sheer volume and nature of the traffic can cause wear and tear on the floor surface over time, making it gradually more difficult to maintain and protect. In addition, the inadequate entrance mats of some stages are unable to remove the excess moisture and dirt carried in with shoes and trolleys, adding further stress to rubber walkways.
Our B2B partner Traffik was very pleased about the request for advice from LSS, which is responsible for the maintenance work on behalf of one of the largest Premier League clubs. LSS provides support services for the sports and leisure market and ensures operational excellence at each of its customer locations, including soccer stadiums.
In this particular case, LSS and the customer were looking for a floor sealing solution that would protect the existing rubber floor, enhance the aesthetic appearance of the surface, and exceed a UK slip resistance rating of 36 (pendulum rating BS7976).
What was needed was a floor seal that withstands the demands of traffic, but at the same time is also suitable for machine and manual cleaning and has a consistently attractive appearance. The new floor covering should allow easier cleaning and reduce the effort for ongoing maintenance of the floor. Due to the size and popularity of the venue, it was also important to be able to ensure a quick and easy relocation with minimal disruption.
After several consultations with the customer, Traffik recommended WEARMAX ® Transparent System as the optimal solution for rubber floors.
The excellent abrasion resistance offered by WEARMAX ® creates a much more durable surface than other floor sealants and is well suited for sports and event venues.
WEARMAX ® can also be applied very quickly and easily, which meets the requirement for quick processing.
WEARMAX® is a floor sealer that anchors ceramic particles floating on the surface. After it has dried out, the existing floor surface has been provided with a ceramic coating, so to speak – unlike other seals in which ceramic is used to harden the core of the seal.
The costs for core cleaning are significantly reduced (by up to 50%), since WEARMAX ® can also be cleaned with just water. No peeling, sealing, buffing, polishing, burnishing, or maintenance pads are required. This reduces labor, supply, chemical storage and disposal costs.
In addition, WEARMAX ® seals from edge to edge, offers increased slip resistance and demonstrably high abrasion resistance.
Traffik visited the customer, “a Premier League Club”, on six different occasions from April to July 2018 to prepare and seal sections of rubber flooring in one area of the hall according to customer specifications.
A total area of approx. 950 m 2 was treated with the WEARMAX ® Transparent System. In order to keep disturbances at the venue as low as possible, all work was carried out in the specified zones in the early morning. Each installation was completed within 24 hours and included:
• Preparation and cleaning of the rubber floor to remove dirt and polish residue and to sand the surface. This also included the removal of chewing gum, adhesive tape and glue residues.
• Rinsing and neutralization to ensure the pH neutrality of the floor surface.
• Covering door sills and skirting boards
• Dusting with a microfiber mop and suction
• Application of the WEARMAX ® Universal Primer
• Application of the WEARMAX ® ceramic layer
• Application of the WEARMAX ® < / sup> Top Coats
After WEARMAX ® was applied and fully cured, pendulum tests were performed to ensure the new flooring was fully compliant with UK standards. In addition to our own certified tests, the floor was also subjected to an independent test.
WEARMAX ® Transparent has equipped the surface of the rubber floor with a transparent top layer. The new surface is very abrasion-resistant and easy to care for. The surface does not require any polishing, buffing, peeling or sealing and can be cleaned quickly and effectively with water.
The overall result is a revitalized floor with a longer lifespan.
Traffik is very proud of the collaboration with LSS, which has led to a successful end result for the customer:
“LSS commissioned Traffik with an assessment of the hall area of a Premier League club in order to determine the wear and tear on the rubber floor, which was mainly caused by the heavy foot traffic. On the recommendation of Traffik, WEARMAX ® ceramic was applied in a hall area in order to preserve and protect the existing floor. “
“Traffik always worked professionally and tried to implement the project quickly and efficiently.
After 18 months the floor still looks” like new “.”
“The surface is smooth and has proven to be much more durable, withstanding the pressure of heavy foot traffic. Black spots have been visibly reduced and the overall effect is a floor that looks great and is much easier for our cleaning teams to maintain. ”
