Epoxy/Urethane Systems

These systems have the most history and have been used the longest. They are rigid in nature, can withstand severe conditions and thermal shock.


  • Long successful history
  • Many products and systems to choose from


  • More surface prep
  • Not suitable for all substrates
  • Strong odors requiring shutdowns for installation
  • Longer cure times
  • Multi-coat systems (primer and top coat)
  • Generally higher cost

Epoxy Suggested Systems

System 1
Over smooth surfaces such as FRP, Drywall, Concrete or tightly adhered coatings

Sanitile 120 or Sanitile 755
(Primer choice is made on case by case situation, each
application is unique)

Top coat:
Sanitile 855

System 2
Over irregular surfaces such as CMU, or old aged,
porous concrete

Sanitile 755

Top coat:
Sanitile 855


These systems are much newer with the advancing technology in water borne coatings. With more stringent VOC regulations in many municipalities the move is towards low VOCs and water based materials.


  • Low or no VOC issues = low odor
  • Ease of use, being single component in most cases
  • Great adhesion with minimal surface prep
  • Adheres to multiple substrates
  • Greater flexibility than rigid systems
  • Single coat systems available


  • Less history than rigid epoxy systems
  • Fewer products meet food plant requirements
