A polyurethane sealer is a high-performance floor coating that is often referred to colloquially as 'urethane. The most apparent benefit of a urethane clear coat is that it is U.V. stable or non-yellowing when exposed to U.V. rays. It is highly durable and scratch-resistant, and even chemical-resistant. 

 

It is solvent-borne, like solvent-based epoxy, which means it is resistant to most chemicals and will not be damaged by oil. Polyurethane sealers are also flexible and waterproof, as most sealers are. 

 

When the proper safety precautions for working with urethane clear coats are observed, it can provide a non-yellowing U.V. stable floor coating that will be durable and long-lasting. 

 

When to use urethane clear coats?

One of the many advantages of polyurethane coats or urethane is their capability to be applied in various materials across other industries, mainly as industrial coating systems. 

 

Urethane coating's versatility makes it compatible with concrete, wood, steel, aluminum, fiberglass, and more. One of the most common applications is to be used as a top coating for garage floors.

 

Is urethane better than epoxy?

There is no straight answer to which chemical is better, as it will vary depending on your application. Urethane's advantage is that it provides more strength and flexibility to surfaces, making it ideal for commercial purposes that deal with heavy equipment and are vulnerable to heavy-impacts daily.

 

How long does urethane coating last?

Urethane clear coating typically lasts around 5-10 years before it shows some sign of deterioration and may require some re-coating. The daily wear and tear on the surface from foot traffic and heavy equipment certainly determine how long your coating could last.

 

What are the benefits of a urethane top coat for epoxy floors?

If you want to enhance your garage floors for a more robust and better-looking finish, you can't possibly go wrong with urethane top coats. Here are some of the most common benefits of applying a urethane top coat for epoxy floors:

 

High abrasion resistance -Urethane coating generally has a three times higher abrasion resistance than epoxies. This means it is well equipped to handle loads of where and tare from heavy equipment and materials you'll often find on manufacturing and commercial buildings.

 

Chemical resistance - Chemical resistance is valuable in ensuring that your coating is well-protected from harmful chemical spills like oil, acids, and more. This also significantly lowers your costs from floor damage repair.

 

U.V. stable - Urethane clear coating can effectively safeguard your surface from damaging U.V. light rays and helps it become stable even when exposed to sunlight.

 

Nonyellowing finish - A yellowing surface is often a result of unwanted chemical reactions that slowly affects the floor's overall finish. With nonyellowing properties, urethane coats will help prevent that from occurring.

 

Scratch resistant -Polyurethane coatings also do an excellent job keeping off scratches and marks that can affect your surface floor's overall finish. 

 

Glossier-looking finish - Urethane coats provide an elegant-looking glossy surface that is both strong, flexible, and visually pleasant.

 

Easy application - Lastly, a urethane coating is relatively easy to apply and maintain compared to other alternative coatings.
