Benefits of Urethane Floor Coating

Concrete floors may be resurfaced using urethane flooring systems (sometimes called polyurethane flooring systems), and colored markings can be added to denote pathways and other features. Slip, chemical, and abrasion resistance are just a few of the performance benefits they may provide. Urethane flooring is a seamless solution for sanitary protection and may be used for waterproofing and pitch for water drainage.

Since urethane floors may be made in any color, they can be used to create any kind of decorative finish or pattern in any commercial or industrial building. The resistance to thermal stress and thermal cycling offered by urethane flooring makes them a desirable option. 

Slip-resistant

Various textures and finishes can be used to increase the traction on a urethane floor. This can be valuable in pool decks, gyms, porches, industrial areas, and kitchens.

Abrasion resistant

Urethane coatings are extremely strong and flexible, meaning moving furnishings or machinery is less likely to cause gauges in the flooring.

Protection against moisture

Urethane flooring is water-resistant because it can withstand some moisture before giving way. Waterproofing urethane flooring requires a membrane and expert installation.

Relatively sustainable

Because urethane floor coatings are poured in place by the contractor or DIY-er, they don’t end up in landfills when fixed or replaced.

Heat resistant

Urethane floors are necessary for settings that experience thermal shock from processing, heavy machinery, and cleaning, as well as regular temperature variations. Urethane flooring is very flexible and can bear the strain of expansion and contraction. Urethane flooring helps prevent the spread of germs, fungus, and mold because of its antimicrobial qualities. Because there are no joints, welds, or grout lines in a poured-in-place urethane floor, it is inherently resistant to the growth of germs and fungus.

Outstanding top coat and sealer

Urethane is an outstanding topcoat and sealer for most epoxy applied over concrete floor coatings in Nashville. A urethane garage floor coating is a great option to protect your garage floor from leaks and increase its traction.

Urethane vs Epoxy Floor Coating

Epoxy and urethane floors seem similar, making choosing between them confusing. Urethane (PU) is more flexible than epoxy, which is stronger. Both materials have strengths and downsides for commercial use. Chemical resistance, temperature resistance, moisture resistance, strength and flexibility, texture, UV sensitivity, installation time, and cost distinguish these two commercial flooring materials.

Different epoxy flooring kinds add to the complexity. Broadcast epoxy is a cheap, popular parking garage or loading dock floor. Back-of-house spaces in restaurants, hotels, and other businesses are painted gray using epoxy floor paint. Hair salons, hotel lobbies, and car showrooms use metallic epoxy flooring for decoration. Silica epoxy boosts impact strength. Finally, epoxy flooring producers often apply polyurethane top coatings for longevity. All epoxy flooring systems are multi-layer. They’re cheaper than urethane flooring, but each application takes a day, and they’re neither waterproof nor durable.

Chemical Resistant

Epoxy resists professional kitchen cleansers but not chemicals. Food and beverage producers, manufacturing plants, healthcare institutions, medical laboratories, R&D labs, warehouses, loading docks, and breweries should utilize urethane because it can endure regular, rigorous cleaning.

Heat Resistance

Urethane is usually superior to epoxy for excessive temperature tolerance in industrial kitchens and dish rooms. Urethane can endure hot- and cold-water washdowns for brewery floors, pharmaceutical operations, and industrial manufacturing.

Water Resistance

Epoxy floors without seams are moisture-resistant, watertight, and slip-resistant in industrial kitchens, dish rooms, cooler boxes, laundry facilities, and more. Urethane concrete is waterproof and moisture-resistant. Even after cleaning, sanitizing, and decontaminating, urethane flooring resists bacterial and fungal development. Urethane works well over porous concrete, which retains moisture.

Flexibility and Strength

Epoxy may fracture and scrape, making it unsuitable for commercial floors with heavy equipment and industrial usage. Urethane may be the finest option for industrial, manufacturing, and warehouse floors because of its flexibility and resilience to abrasion, impact, and thermal shock.

Texture

Hand-troweled epoxy might become chalky or brittle over time. Urethane is used for industrial floors, warehouses, loading docks, machine shops, and almost any back-of-house or high-traffic area in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, hospitals, hotels and casinos, schools and universities, correctional facilities, and more.

UV Resistance

Epoxy fades or yellows in the sunshine, so it’s best for business floors that don’t get much sun. Urethane flooring can withstand direct sunshine and maintain its color. UV-resistant top coatings are always available if you want the look of epoxy floors.

FAQ’s on Urethane Floor Coating

Urethane floor coating is a durable floor solution that is poured on site, meaning it has no seams or cracks. It’s resistant to UV rays, bacteria, and scratches, making it ideal for heavy traffic areas and industrial buildings. 

When urethane flooring is drying, it can have some unpleasant and harmful fumes, depending on its formula. You may need to leave the area for about a day to let it dry. However, urethane floor coating is considered generally safe once it has dried. 

Epoxy floor coatings and urethane floor coatings each have advantages and can be combined to maximize them. Urethane floor coatings are the best when you need a long-lasting floor coating resistant to UV rays, bacteria, scratches, and heat. 

When you are applying urethane floor coatings, you will need to pour three to four coats. Water-based urethane floor coatings require more coats. Check your product details or contact us for questions. 

Olive oil softens paint. Cover the paint and let it soak for an hour. If the procedure works, the paint should come off with a cloth or a plastic paint scraper.

It costs 40 to 80 cents per square foot. Additional coats can add to labor costs if you hire a contractor, as they may need drying time.
