Com­mer­cial Floor­ing Pros With Exten­sive Prod­uct Knowledge

When it comes to com­mer­cial floor­ing solu­tions, it’s com­mon to get con­fused on the dif­fer­ences between epoxy and ure­thane coat­ings. This is why we ensure that every mem­ber of our Com­mer­cial Floor­ing crew is trained in help­ing you under­stand the pros and cons of all your floor­ing options so you are left feel­ing con­fi­dent and informed about your decision.

The Dif­fer­ence Between Epoxy & Ure­thane Flooring

Epoxy Vs. Ure­thane: Pros and Cons

Here at Kaloutas, both our ure­thane and con­crete epoxy coat­ings are done in a two-part process, which is far supe­ri­or to air cured floor­ing options. Installing the coat­ing in two steps means that the chem­i­cal reac­tion caused by mix­ing the resin in two steps will cause stronger adhe­sion and durability.

Epoxy floor­ing is more durable and can hold up to high com­pres­sion work­sites, mak­ing it the best choice for heavy duty indus­tri­al facil­i­ties which use fork lifts. Ure­thane on the oth­er hand is more scratch resis­tant and elas­tic, mak­ing it the ide­al choice for freez­er cham­bers and water­proof car park­ing structures.

Both floor­ing sur­faces react dif­fer­ent­ly to cer­tain chem­i­cals as well, ure­thane is often the best choice for the food­ser­vice indus­try while epoxy holds up bet­ter to heavy chem­i­cal use.
