Polyurethane systems: Water-based and HFO-based

A few weeks ago, we invited a customer to our facilities at Cornellà to see how two different polyurethane floor systems can be put together—one water-based and the other HFO-based. The demonstration, which lasted several hours, was given by a team of specialist installers responsible for laying out the systems.  Each of the two systems was created using both 3 and 4 layers. 

Installation safety equipment and measures:

  • Read the products’ safety datasheets
  • Determine the most suitable personal protection equipment based on the conditions at the work site
  • Use suitable protective clothing
  • Use suitable gloves
  • Use face and eye protection
  • Use a mask for respiratory protection

Characteristics of the water-based polyurethane system:

  • No effects on the ozone layer or global warming
  • Practically odourless
  • Slower reaction time
  • The same hardness as a gas-based system

Characteristics of the HFO-based polyurethane system:

  • No effects on the ozone layer or global warming
  • Faster reaction time
  • The same hardness as traditional gas-based systems
