Epoxy floors are usually more sturdy than Polyurethanes.
For these reasons epoxies are preferred in
Polyurethane floors are usually softer and more elastic.
Polyurethane floors are therefore preferred
Epoxy is always the better choice when working in environments where humidity could become an issue. Polyurethane floors are more sensitive to moisture. Epoxy resins are also susceptible to moisture, but the damage done by humidity will be far more limited to some discoloration or blushing.
Polyurethane floors can be easily modified to extend or limit their pot life, re-coat time, and total curing time.
This flexibility enables contractors to complete PU floors much quicker and turn over the floors to their customers in a much shorter period. Epoxy floors are much less flexible in this respect. They usually require seven days to cure fully.
In general, polyurethanes are more challenging to work with. Their limited pot life and humidity issues require well-trained and experienced staff.
