Green Product Green Thinking Product: Polyurethane 500

Description: Polyurethane 500 is a two component, water- based aliphatic polyurethane that provides an excellent combination of high gloss, hardness, stain resistance and gloss retention under heavy foot traffic.  The material cures quickly, allowing light traffic in 4-6 hours.  Resistance to yellowing and loss of gloss under U.V. light  is excellent.  For exterior applications, a special U.V. absorber package can be added to ensure long term U.V. resistance.  Polyurethane 500 is user and environmentally friendly.  It is VOC compliant in California.

Purpose: Polyurethane 500 has been developed as a high performance finish coat for various seamless flooring, coating, and architectural concrete applications where odor cannot be tolerated.  It is the ideal top coat for areas that require maximum gloss retention, ease of cleaning, and resistance to heavy foot traffic.  Typical areas of application would include clean rooms, hospitals, concrete counter tops and high traffic retail areas.  Polyurethane 500 is also very well suited as a high performance coating for hardwood floors.


  • Application rate must be kept above 200 sq. ft. per gallon to avoid curing bubbles that can occur in heavy applications.
  • Application over textured surfaces such as trowel-knockdown polymer concrete must be done with a ¾ inch nap roller and pulled tightly to avoid leaving excessive product in recessed areas.
  • Work life is considerably shortened over 90 degrees F.
  • Do not apply material if the humidity is over 85% and ventilation is poor. Improper cure will result.
  • Material not suited for vehicle areas. Use Polyurethane 501 for these applications.
