Heat Welding Urethane Coated Sheet Flooring

Urethane UV-cured wear layers are more sensitive to heat than vinyl wear layers. Therefore, it is critical to have the proper heat welding tips when welding products with urethane wear layers to prevent scorching.

Apply a Top Coat

  • When welds are complete, consider applying a thin, even application of a commercially available, high-quality multi-purpose top coating.
  • Use care to avoid over-application onto the wear layer of the adjacent sheet flooring material.
  • In high traffic areas, apply one or two additional coats, making sure the finish is completely dry between applications.
  • Always use the finish in conjunction with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
