CASTORCRETE® Urethane Cement Mortar
Urethane Modified Concrete is a high-strength, high-barrier floor coating system. Urethane modified concrete is designed for use in the most demanding food and beverage processing areas where high resistance to impact, abrasion and chemical resistance to organic food acids is required.
CASTORCRETE® Urethane Cement Mortar is designed for use in the most demanding food and beverage processing areas where high resistance to impact, abrasion and chemical resistance to organic food acids is required. It has outstanding chemical resistance to most solvents, acids, alkalis, hot oils and animal by-products and is designed to protect existing concrete or resurface moderately deteriorated concrete. It can withstand aggressive physical exposure to heavy-duty abrasion and impact, thermal shock and thermal cycling, steam cleaning, heavy traffic and forklift traffic.
The CastorCrete® system features a colored quartz broadcast finish in a single solid color or silica sand medium and is grout coated and top coated with a variety of products depending on the end use environment. This system is typically installed at 3/16 inch (4.8 mm) to ¼ inch (6.35 mm) thickness. It can be sealed with a variety of topcoats depending on environmental exposures and desired aesthetics.

Benefits of Urethane Mortar vs. Epoxy
The physical properties of urethane mortar systems are far superior to that of epoxy systems when it comes to specific applications such as heavy-duty industrial food processing, pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, breweries or meat, fish and dairy processing plants. Below is a list of attributes where urethane mortar excels versus epoxy.
- Withstands heavy abuse
- Very low odor
- No risk to open food products
- Impervious to radical temperature changes
- Withstands extreme temperatures
