Polyurea Offers Many Advantages

Almost no coating can compare to polyurea when it comes to attainable physical properties.

Polyurea is a truly remarkable coating, lining and joint sealant technology and can be used for a wide variaty of applications. Polyurea coatings and linings are commonly applied over concrete and steel for corrosion protection and abrasion resistance. They also have numerous advantages over conventional materials due to their extremely fast setting times, high elongation, extreme resistance to atmospheric attack and their durability abrasion characteristics.

Polyurea Benefits

No VOC´s and, depending on the formulation, odour-free.

Application temperature: -30°C to +60°C, even in high humidity conditions.

Fast reaction, which means the sprayed surface can be returned to service quickly.

Excellent heat resistance up to 130°C, short-term up to 220°C.

Considerably better UV stability compared to polyurethanes.

Waterproof (acts as a seal) and hydrolysis stable.

High tensile strength, in the order of 1450 - 4350 psi (10 – 30 MPa).

Large elongation at break, in the order of a few hundred to 1000%.

Flexible (bridges cracks).

Can be applied at any thickness.

Excellent bonding to properly prepared substrates.

Good chemical resistance.

Simple machine processing due to low viscosities.
