Commercial Kitchen Flooring – Urethane Cement Installer NYC
When deciding between types of floor resurfacing, people often find themselves choosing between epoxy and urethane cement. Fortunately, when it comes to concrete floor coatings, you can often use both.
While each of these floor coatings works differently, they both offer a variety of advantages. These systems also greatly mitigate issues related to high moisture vapor emissions in the substrate.
Polyurethane Mortars or Urethane Cement Floor (USDA Approved) is a high-performance cementitious material with a urethane binder. Designed to withstand extremely harsh environments (food processing, beverage, pharmaceutical, and chemical facilities).
Also referred to as urethane mortars, urethane concrete flooring, and cementitious polyurethane floor coating. This material better than epoxy floor withstands wet processing, chemical contamination and high-temperature cleaning than traditional coatings.
Urethane Cement is dense and impervious. Ideal flooring solutions where the highest hygienic standards are required and for the toughest industrial environments.
We challenged the resistance of this floor against extreme temperatures, corrosive acids, and the most aggressive impacts. No cracking, debonding, delamination nor softening of any kind occurred.
Cementitious Urethane Flooring for Commercial Kitchens and Food Processing
Urethane Mortar Flooring or Urethane Slurry System are designed to be used particularly in the food industry and the chemical industry. Especially when high chemical resistance and resistance to organic acids is required.
And for industrial floors that are subjected to hot water and steam cleaning.
- High Thermal Shock Resistance
- High Chemical and Mechanical resistance
- Textured non-slip finish
- Excellent resistance to hot water
- Constant exposure to moisture
- Impervious, Moisture Tolerant
- Low odor
Urethane Cement Slurry Floor System
If the customer needs a resurfaced, heavy duty floor, then a urethane cement slurry mix will be the most promising application. This easy to clean flooring material can be installed at 3/16 inch or 1/4 inch.
The thicker the floor, the most abrasion it can tolerate. But not only can it be installed at such a heavy gauge.
It can also do the greatest job of protecting one of your facility’s most valuable assets: the concrete mortar. At this heavy of an application, urethane cement can resist thermal shock.
It’s also anti-microbial and prevents dangerous microbes from growing on the surface. Easily broadcast texture into the surface provide a slip-resistant commercial floor surface.
Quartz sand is a double aught sand that will give you excellent slip resistance.
However, you’ll want to make sure you apply a grout coat over the broadcast sand. Otherwise, that sand can become dislodged from the urethane cement, and actually clog drains.
But overall, urethane cement has proven to be a superior mortar system. It is excellent for food and beverage and can help improve the flooring options in pharmaceutical facilities.
