Polyurea is truly a remarkable coatings, linings and joint sealant technology. It is being used successfully for so many different applications today. Polyurea coatings and linings are more commonly applied over concrete and steel for corrosion protection and abrasion resistance. They also have tremendous advantages over conventional materials for joint fill and caulk applications due to their fast set nature, high elongation and durability/abrasion characteristics. Polyurea can be molded and shaped by spraying it into molds. Similarly, polyurea is also used as hard coat protective shell over Polyurethane foam.
The markets and applications are endless and rapidly on the rise. Polyurea's future uses are limited only to one’s imagination!
Polyurea cannot solve your protective coating or joint fill needs by itself. It must be specified and installed in combination with proper surface preparation and primers, correct manufacturer’s material formulation, proper equipment, quality control inspection and trained applicators.
Benefits of Polyurea Coatings
- No VOC’s and Little to No Odor
- Excellent Resistance to Thermal Shock
- Flexible: Bridges Cracks
- Waterproof, Seamless and Resilient
- Unlimited Mil Thickness in One Application
- Spray, Hand Mix and Caulk Grade Materials
- Excellent Bond Strengths to Properly Prepared Substrates
- Resistant to Various Solvents, Caustics and Mild Acids
- Low Permeability, Excellent Sustainability
Truck Bed Liners
Polyurea truck bed liners form a durable, water and air-tight, permanent liner for the exterior of pick up trucks, dump trucks and steel containers. These durable, easy to clean and abrasion resistant liners protect utility trucks from their harsh duty environments. They also protect against rust and corrosion from damaging trucks and containers. Polyurea liners can also be applied in varied thickness to meet any specific application demand.
Polyurea coatings protect steel tanks from corrosion, chemicals, and other natural weather and jobsite elements. With proper surface preparation, substrate condition, formulation choice, primers, and installation procedures, polyurea goes on fast and stays on long. Polyureas are great for extending the life of older tanks and can offer limited structural characteristics as well.
Polyurea coatings make an excellent protective covering for polyurethane foam roofs. Polyurea can be formulated to meet specific performance requirements due the wide range of physical properties that can be formulated. reflective coatings can help reduce the amount energy consumption buildings use for heating and cooling. The fast cure time and insensitivity to moisture allows for a quicker installation with a wider application window. Proper surface preparation and substrate condition is always necessary.
Above the water line and below, polyurea can be very effective in protecting steel, aluminium, and fibreglass in a variety of water sport and commercial marine applications. From sound attenuation for fishing canoes, to fish hold liners, to hull protection and bilge liners, polyureas are used in many abrasion, chemical and corrosion resistant marine applications.
Pipe/Pipeline Coatings & Linings
Polyurea Coatings and linings are increasingly being used to protect steel pipes from corrosion. Polyurea has demonstrated its ability to last longer than paint and maintenance services and costs are reduced. Polyurea is a great protective coating system for pipes that are insulated with polyurethane foam. Polyureas are also being used to line the inside of water and sewer pipes for infrastructure rehabilitation work.
