Epoxy floors are known for being tough and durable, making them the ideal choice for industrial settings with heavy forklift traffic. Easy to maintain, these floors also resist chemicals such as solvents without staining over time.
Polyurethane boasts many additional qualities that make it the superior choice for any room in which it’s installed, including superior heat, cold and thermal shock resistance as well as being resistant to lactic acid-producing food processing industries.

Easy to Clean
Epoxy and urethane floor coatings are generally recognized for being easy to keep clean. Their smooth surfaces do not permit debris to penetrate into their material, and regular sweeping or vacuuming is enough to remove loose dirt. In contrast, concrete floors require more intensive cleaning with special cleaners to avoid damage or staining from spills.
Apart from sweeping, epoxy flooring should also be mopped regularly when there is high traffic in a facility, to reduce build-up of dirt, oil, and other liquids that could cause permanent damage to its surface. Mopping can be performed either using a hard foam mop or microfiber mop combined with an approved cleaner for epoxy floors; non-enzymatic soap products will help avoid leaving behind soap scum that dulls its shine and should be preferred over synthetic soap-scums that dull its shine.
Protecting epoxy coating from grit is also vital, as this can damage its finish and require more frequent cleaning and maintenance. A walk-off mat at the entrance or soft pads under vehicles and heavy machinery are great ways to do this; alternatively welding/grinding activities should use weld mats that protect floors against excessive impact from welding/grinding activities which can be especially harsh on coatings.
Resistant to Scratches
Epoxy floor coatings are tough, durable surfaces that can withstand impacts from heavy equipment and cleaning chemicals used in warehouses and office buildings, making them a suitable option for warehouses and office buildings alike. Unfortunately, however, epoxy can still be damaged by sharp objects like nails and screws which could penetrate its surface resulting in unsightly dents in its flooring surface. To minimize such incidents use padding under heavy equipment when moving objects across its surface. To minimize unnecessary dents on epoxy flooring layers use padding under heavy equipment and never drag objects across it! To protect it against such incidents place padding under heavy equipment when moving objects along its surfaces or drag objects over its surfaces when possible – as both actions will prevent unsightly dents to appear on this type of flooring surface. To help protect it against this happen to use padding under heavy equipment when moving them across it’s surface surface creating unattractive dents which in turn affect warehouses or office buildings alike. To minimize such potential damages use padding under heavy equipment and never drag objects across its surfaces to protect it dents on its surfaces to protect it dents avoid these damage simply not drag objects over its surfaces when possible to avoid drag them across it’s surface without first using pads dragging.
Polyurethane coatings provide greater resilience, scratch resistance, thermal shock resistance, and thermal shock absorption compared to traditional paint. They are therefore well suited to environments experiencing frequent traffic impacts from heavy equipment like forklifts or carts as well as areas that experience frequent temperature shifts on an ongoing basis.
Urethane stands out as being less vulnerable to humidity changes than epoxy, making it an attractive option in busy 24-hour facilities that cannot afford any downtime for their floors.
Epoxies and urethanes differ in that urethane remains clearer longer and won’t yellow under direct sunlight, unlike epoxy. Both coatings offer great protective, maintenance, aesthetic, and safety properties for commercial floors and industrial environments alike, including protecting floors from liquid spills, creating safe work environments through non-slip surfaces that promote worker safety, and being easy to clean up afterwards.
Resistant to Chemicals
Chemical resistant urethane floor coatings are specifically designed to safeguard floors against harsh chemicals that corrode them, such as antimicrobial additives for added defense against pathogens and higher temperatures. Furthermore, their ability to resist exposure to organic acids, thermal shock and higher temperatures makes them an excellent option for food and beverage facilities as well.
Polyurethane floor coatings tend to be harder and can withstand greater amounts of impact without cracking or peeling, making it the ideal choice for warehouses and factories where heavy machinery is regularly utilized. They also have significant heat tolerance as well as humidity-controlling qualities compared with epoxy alternatives.
Aliphatic polyurethanes are particularly adept at withstanding harsh chemical spills and solvents, making them suitable for trenches, internal tank linings and pump pads. They are resistant to acids, alkalis, metals and solvents such as paint strippers, gasoline and diesel fuel – perfect for trenches!
Not all resins are chemical resistant in equal measures, and so it is vital that you choose a flooring company with experience providing custom resistance levels tailored specifically to meet your individual requirements. This will guarantee safe and long-term flooring solutions.
Easy to Install
Epoxy flooring is easy to install, making it perfect for areas with heavy traffic that requires minimal upkeep. Ideal for garages, warehouses, showrooms, and many other commercial and industrial floors such as garages or showrooms with liquid spillage issues or anti-slip requirements and enhance light reflectivity, epoxy can protect floor surfaces against liquid spills while promoting safety through anti-slip properties and increasing light reflectivity.
Professional epoxy contractors can install this form of flooring correctly to extend its longevity for years without the need to recoat or wax. Before beginning application, however, the concrete surface must first be prepared; this involves grinding and sanding to create a rough surface to facilitate mechanical bonding between epoxy primer and concrete, as well as filling cracks, filling divots, and cleaning thoroughly prior to installing an epoxy coating.
Success with any project relies on following the manufacturer’s product instructions for mixing and application of epoxy. A tarp or cardboard piece placed in front of your garage door serves as an effective mixing area and prevents epoxy from getting on your driveway. Running a fan during this period will also keep air moving, keeping any condensation off of your garage floor surface from occurring.
Epoxy and urethane floor resins are both hardwearing, offering great thermal shock resistance in environments experiencing temperature extremes. Urethane offers additional advantages when dealing with sudden fluctuations in temperature – something especially helpful for food processing facilities.
