Installing Urethane Cement – Part One

This is part one of our video series on “Installing Urethane Cement” and discussing some of the benefits of urethane cement. Urethane cement offers excellent protection from excess moisture, and has the durability to be cleaned in abundance without wearing down.

Earlier this year, we used urethane cement in a flooring project in Baltimore, Maryland. A local food manufacturer was experiencing flooring issues in the dock room. The dock room takes a lot of hard cleaners. The room was always cleaned with chemicals because they dealt with foods.

Urethane Cement

Urethane cement is a superior flooring top coat. It is stronger than epoxy, abrasion resistant, chemical resistant, and thermo-shock resistant. It is a preferred floor for pharmaceutical and food manufacturing facilities. Normally, urethane cement is applied over a concrete substrate, but it can also be applied to marine-grade plywood subflooring.

Components

The product is packaged in three pre-measured parts: a pail of resin, a pail of hardener and a bag of aggregate:

  • Resin: The water-based resin is a blend of polyester-ether polyol and glycol ester, with coloring oxides and carbon black. The resin is free of volatile organic compounds.
  • Hardener: The hardener is an aliphatic polyisocyanate consisting of hexamethylene diisocyanate (HDI), the homopolymer of HDI, and a pinch of methylenedicyclohexyl diisocyanate. The hardener gives the coating its abrasion and UV resistance.
  • Aggregate: The sand/cement aggregate is a dry mixture of Portland cement, quartz and calcium/magnesium hydroxide. The material’s dust can cause lung injury or cancer, so it’s important to take suitable precautions.
