What is Urethane?

UrethaneUrethane is a type of finish that is applied to many products. It provides protection against weathering, scratches and temperature.

Urethane is a sealer that is used to protect many types of products, but is most often used to seal decorative concrete and stone. Many polyurethane items are also referred to as urethane. These sealers provide a barrier to protect wood, concrete and other items from heat, excessive cold and moisture. Layers of urethane and polyurethane can also protect against scratches, dents and nicks. Urethane can be an expensive sealing treatment to put on floors, but it is very effective in protecting against damage.

Urethane sealers are available in both water based and solvent based varieties. They dry quickly, which allows professionals to finish their projects in a timely manner. When carpenters or other professionals are using urethane, they must take care to follow the directions properly. They must wear protective gear, and the work area should be well ventilated.
