Polyurethane Traffic Coating
If you’re having a new floor installed or looking to revamp your existing surfaces, you’ll find plenty of options at your disposal.

Taking Your Concrete Floor to the Next Level
On its own, a concrete floor can last several decades. Whether it’s the standard gray version in your garage or an elaborate stamped and stained concrete floor in your kitchen, it’ll hold up to years of wear and tear. That being said, certain measures can help extend concrete’s lifespan and keep it looking new no matter what types of abuse it receives. Polyurethane traffic coating is one of the most effective options in this regard.
What Is Polyurethane Traffic Coating?
Polyurethane is an organic thermosetting polymer. Though many people use the terms polyurethane and urethane interchangeably, the two substances are actually quite different. Though the latter is more flexible, polyurethane is firmer and offers a higher level of protection for your floors.
Polyurethane starts out as a thick liquid. Once it’s poured and smoothed out, we use heat to harden it. From there, it forms a strong, permanent forcefield against all types of damage.
This type of material is considered a high-performance coating because it’s designed to withstand virtually any hazard. Polyurethane traffic coating protects your floors against heavy foot traffic, scratches, stains, and impacts. It can be used in tandem with an epoxy coating for a stronger bond with concrete or as a standalone barrier against damage.
Where Can Polyurethane Be Used?
Polyurethane can be used anywhere you need an extra layer of protection. It’s highly UV-resistant, so it won’t discolor over the years. This type of barrier is also resistant to stains, chemical exposure, and abrasive substances. It’ll work just as well on a garage or warehouse floor as it will in a kitchen, bathroom, or daycare center.
Polyurethane coatings are also designed for outdoor use. They can help protect a deck, patio, walkway, or other hardscapes against the elements. They’ll also help prevent further damage from any small cracks that may have already formed in the concrete or stonework.
Give Your Floor Ultimate Functionality and Aesthetic Appeal
Several types of polyurethane coatings are available. Some are clear and glossy to allow the beauty of the flooring underneath to shine through. Others have a more matte finish. They also come in an array of colors and can be mixed with an aggregate to form an anti-slip surface. It’s possible to create a polyurethane floor that resembles other materials, such as stone, tile, or brick using various textures, colors, and patterns as well.
