Similarly one may ask, can polyurethane be used on countertops?
Polyurethane varnish is one of the best finishes for a countertop -- it's durable and, when applied properly, can be just as subtle as lacquer. Best of all, applying polyurethane doesn't require spray equipment and is a job you can easily do yourself. Oil finishes tend to soak into the grain and yellow.
Similarly, what do you seal wood countertops with? Seal the countertop to protect it from water and other liquids.
- Apply coats of polyurethane to the countertop surface.
- Select a urethane that is FDA approved to ensure the substance is safe to be in contact with your food.
- Apply at least 3 coats to get a good, solid coating.

What is stronger epoxy or polyurethane?
when it comes to hardness epoxies are much stronger but polyurethane are more scratch resistance. Polyurethanes do not bond well to concrete and do not exemplify the self leveling properties that epoxies do when applied to on these surfaces.
