Why would I need a urethane topcoat on an epoxy floor system?
When it comes to flooring, performance and lifespan are the two most important factors. While epoxies certainly offer both, urethane topcoats are typically tougher than epoxies. These products can help increase the protection for a floor coating system, increasing both performance and lifespan, as well as the value of your investment.
- Harsh chemicals, acids, oils, solvents and grease
- UV exposure, so it will not yellow over time
They are available in satin and high-gloss finishes. Additionally, many come in both colors as well as clear, so any intricate design or branding you have as part of your epoxy finish can be imbedded within the floor and shine through.
Most are also low odor and low VOC, with LEED credits available.
Minimal Downtime, Too
Time to cure depends on various environmental factors, such as temperature, humidity, air movement, and others.
