POLYUREA PROTECTIVE COATINGS
Polyurea is a two-component system that when mixed together creates one of the most durable coating applications available in the market place.
As a fast curing, thick film coating, polyurea is a logical solution when seamless, durable membranes are needed for waterproofing and protective purposes. Additional characteristics such as slip-resistant additives and surface textures can also be incorporated. It can be coloured, and is even available in a potable water approved formulation. With such a wide range of performance characteristics, the range of suitable applications is also broad. Tank linings, secondary containment and bridge coatings, car park surfaces, water storage pits are some of the most popular uses, but the application possibilities are endless.
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 their asset back in service faster than traditional coatings, saving days or even weeks of revenue lost due to down-time.
WHY USE POLYUREA?
This coating has superior durability and performance compared to epoxy and urethane coatings, but with added flexibility for natural movement within the body of the material.
Polyurea has a fast cure time, and is relatively insensitive to moisture, ambient temperatures and weather changes, which makes it ideal for coatings on large surface area projects.
The reactivity time for Polyurea is around 5 seconds, which allows it to be applied to virtually any thickness in one application. It is touch dry and trafficable in less than 5 minutes and fully cured within 1 hour.
Polyurea can be sprayed on site and in remote locations for the premium protection for your vital equipment and infrastructure.
