Red wine won’t stain this ¼-inch epoxy mortar floor if quickly wiped away with soapy water. However, wine is an oxidising agent; the longer it sits and the hotter the room, the more it attacks epoxy components. An air-conditioned bar that diligently cleans runs little risk, but a hot fermentation room should apply a polyurethane sealer to enhance chemical resistance or specify cementitious urethane instead.

More than 60,000 people travel through Perth Station every day. The Public Transport Authority of Western Australia specified clear methyl methacrylate (MMA) impregnated with colored quartz aggregates to maintain color intensity despite heavy foot traffic. Because they’re acrylic-based, MMA cleaning regimens differ from those for epoxies and cementitious urethanes.

Cementitious urethane’s texture enhances traction but destroys synthetic scrubbing pads. Instead, steam clean or high-pressure hose; cementitious urethane resists boiling water and manufacturing byproducts up to 250 degrees F.
