Polyurethane over epoxy is usually safe, and a common top-coat to restrict yellowing. Epoxy over polyurethane - some water-borne epoxies state they can be used on polyurethane finishes like is commonly used for clear coats on linoleum or laminate floors, others not.

I would contact the epoxy paint manufacturer - though you would probably have to provide them with the Quickcrete product info sheet stating what it is made of (or scan the info off the tube if printed there) so they know what the material and solvents are.

Water-borne epoxy can go over a wide variety of paints and finishes (once they are properly roughened for bonding and cleaned). Solvent-based epoxies will bubble and lift almost all coatings other than bare concrete or stone or wood.

You could always mix a tiny batch and test a spot that is more or less out of sight. Or play it safe (what I would do) and use the epoxy manufacturer's primer first, then when starting to apply the epoxy watch carefully for any sign of bubbling or turning white or such.
