Using 10 critical service conditions, this comparison shows exactly how urethane concrete and epoxy, two of the most popular choices in high performance flooring today, stack up side-by-side, revealing UCRETE’s “Ten Point Advantage,” from corrosive environments and thermal stability to downtime and cost.

What is UCRETE®?

Developed more than 30 years ago by BASF as the answer to the most demanding industrial environments, UCRETE® technology is the original polyurethane flooring solution that provides a powerful layer of protection for both new and existing concrete surfaces. UCRETE® stands out from the rest with a higher resin content that needs no additional sealer coat, which can wear away in time, leaving a floor porous and unprotected.

Engineered as a superior alternative to acid brick, quarry tile and coatings, UCRETE® offers unequaled resistance to physical abuse, moisture, a wide range of aggressive chemicals and bacterial growth, outperforming traditional epoxy flooring surfaces in both impact resistance from heavy traffic and ability to withstand thermal shock. The technology and the application technique have been perfected with years of experience.
