Although an epoxy resin flooring and a polyurethane flooring may seem similar and both have high technical performance, their performance is different. Here are some of their differences:


    • #polyurethane can be bicomponent or monocomponent;
    • has greater impact absorption capacity and flexibility than epoxy resin;
    • Being more flexible, a polyurethane flooring tolerates extreme temperatures (between -30 and +120 °C), thus protecting the floor from cracking or breaking;
    • has greater abrasion resistance (although it is not its strong suit) and to solvents and chemical attack;
    • is more resistant to humidity.
    • does not stain or deteriorate easily and is easy to maintain and durable;
    • withstands well the influence of the UV rays and the temperature changesThe aesthetics of its finish remains unchanged, so it can be used both indoors and outdoors;
    • Its finish can be matte, satin or glossy, although the range of colors is smaller.

    • the #resinaepoxy will always be a bicomponent product;
    • has higher levels of adhesion on any surface and reaches deeper;
    • is not recommended for outdoors as it is sensitive to environmental agents - UV radiation and temperature variations;
    • can tolerate temperatures between -10 and +50 °C;
    • epoxy flooring is more workable than polyurethane.
    • is resistant to chemical attack and abrasives;
    • is easy to maintain and durable;
    • its finish is glossy and a wider range of colors can be used.

IMPORTANT! But you can take advantage of the benefits of both products by using them in combination. With their combination we obtain anti-static floors, resistant to stains, chemicals, impacts and abrasion...
