The short answer is..usually yes! However, it depends on the environment. In heavy duty food and beverage with it’s frequent washing, exposure to high temperatures, as well concentrated chemicals , PU Cement is objectively capable of performing better than epoxy due to it’s superior chemical, thermal, impact resistance amongst other characteristics. It stands to reason that Polyurethane Cement has wrestled the overwhelming share of resin flooring from epoxy over the last decade, as customer’s who have experienced both insist on Polyurethane Cement over epoxy in order to reduce the frequency of maintaining or even replacing their floors.
It can be if you compare it to basic rolled on or low film build epoxy coatings, however when you increase the thickness of the coating, which is necessary to deal with a heavy duty environment, it can actually be comparable or even cheaper than similar thickness epoxy flooring. Another cost advantage of the Polyurethane Cement application is that it can be applied in fewer steps than an epoxy floor, resulting in expensive labour savings.
Early versions of PU cement were matt finish and were more prone to staining, however most manufacturers now offer glossier finishes which greatly improves the staining of PU Cement floors, discolouration is also common, especially with light of pastel colours due to the natural tendency of this type of resin and hardener to slightly darken or go brown over time. New colour stable options are available, however they come at a cost premium.
Most epoxies soften at over 60° Celsius, due to their thermosetting nature and composition. PU Cements are modified with polyurethane resin, which means their composition and thermal characteristics are almost identical the concrete surface they are applied to. Therefore, their coefficient of thermal expansion and contraction mirrors the underlying concrete, which imparts a more favourable behaviour when temperatures increase or decrease during washing or production. Polyurethane cement can comfortably withstand elevated temperatures in excess of 100° Celsius.
