The chemical resistance comes from the fact they are non-porous and hence they offer the best chemical resistance of all the resins and even in wet process areas their surface profile aids slip resistance.
Being widely used across food industry especially in Food processing plants, bakeries, abattoirs, breweries and dairies Polyurethane Screeds can offer a life span of 10 years plus even when subjected to constant cleaning with disinfectants.
For this very same reason Polyurethane Screeds are often favoured in the pharmaceutical, chemical and other manufacturing sectors where spillages of corrosive or organic liquids occur. Even in these extreme conditions the life expectancy of a Polyurethane Screeded floor is 10 years.
