This is a medium duty, flow applied, self-smoothing polyurethane floor topping, which provides a surface with excellent resistances to abrasion, chemical attack and other forms of physical aggression. It is a seamless, smooth finish with uniform colour based on water dispersed polyurethane resin combined with reactive polyurethane hardener and graded silica aggregates.
Polyurethane coatings can be applied to many surface materials, including wood, metal and plastic, and virtually any type of flooring surface. Its versatility of use is one of the characteristics of polyurethane that has led to its popularity.
A primary benefit of using polyurethane coatings is the protection it provides the surface itself. When applied, the coating creates what is essentially an impermeable barrier between the elements and the object it’s covering. With its smooth, hard surface, polyurethane seals out rain, dirt, mud, and other natural surface enemies. It allows provides protection from humidity and oxidation, which can cause corrosion.
Additionally, polyurethane coatings are very popular in the manufacturing sector because it helps seal out oil and solvents, as well as provides the added benefit of assisting with noise reduction. Of course, this helps protect something else – your ears!
Since polyurethane doesn’t emit any vapours that may be harmful to people, animals or the environment, the choice to use it comes at little risk overall. Just be cautious that when you do use it you don’t allow children or animals near any open containers since the consumption of polyurethane, like any other coating material, is harmful when swallowed.
Ease of Application
Polyurethane has come a long way since World War II, and with the many benefits and advantages it provides, it’s no wonder it has become a mainstream choice in surface protection.
