With its smooth, hard surface, polyurethane seals out rain, dirt, mud, and other natural surface enemies. It allows provides protection from humidity and oxidation, which can cause corrosion.

Additionally, polyurethane coatings are very popular in the manufacturing sector because it helps seal out oil and solvents, as well as provides the added benefit of assisting with noise reduction.

Limited Risk

Since polyurethane doesn’t emit any vapours that may be harmful to people, animals or the environment, the choice to use it comes at little risk overall.

Ease of Application
