Polyurea is a remarkable technology with a range of uses limited only by your imagination.
Polyurea can be used in a broad range of applications including corrosion protection, containment, membranes, linings and caulk. It can also be used in extreme conditions. Polyurea is 100% solids, making it compliant with VOC regulations. Perhaps its greatest advantage is that it sets up extremely quickly, allowing the applicator to build up a finished thickness in a single pass. This allows the owner to put the facility back in service many times faster than traditional coatings, saving days or even weeks of revenue lost to down-time. Polyurea demonstrates exceptional physical characteristics such as high elongation, tensile strength, tear resistance and chemical resistance. It adheres tenaciously to a variety of different substrates (concrete, metals, wood and more) and in a wide range of temperature and humidity environments which has lead to rapid market acceptance and consistent growth in market share. First developed in the early 80’s for use in the automotive industry due to their high strength and impact resistance, spray-able polyureas hit the market later that decade as a plural-component system that could be applied using less expensive, portable and commercially available equipment. In a world of increasing environmental awareness, polyurea proves to be an effective and economical choice for governments and businesses for their elastomeric and structural needs.
