Polyurea Coating- For the lifelong protection of your structures
Polyurea coating has been on the Australian market since the 1980s, but due to its durability, flexibility, and versatility new applications for this coating are being found all the time. It is currently used across industries for waterproofing, corrosion protection, containment of water as well as chemical and toxic substances, flooring, and mechanical equipment, just to name a few. Polyurea coating is also flexible regarding substrates; it is applicable on concrete, metals, wood, plaster, plastics, and many more substrates.
A polyurea coating is the result of a reaction between an isocyanate and a resin blend, which forms a plastic- or rubber-like compound. This elastomeric can be used in similar ways to other technologies like polyurethane and epoxy, but the protection it provides combines the best aspects of both these coatings. Polyurea is used for everything from mining equipment and pipeline coating to playground fixtures, waterproof tank linings, asbestos encapsulation, and more.
5 benefits of polyurea coating for your project :
Waterproof and corrosion protection: Polyurea coatings have moisture insensitivity/resistance. They have low permeability and are also resilient to water, providing corrosion protection. Therefore, they are also used as tank linings.
Minimum downtime: A curing time from 30 seconds to 2 minutes means there is an almost immediate return-to-service time, and downtime is many times less than with another paint.
Strength and flexibility: Polyurea has a high polymeric elongation meaning that it stretches as well as resists punctures and tears.
100% solids: With a 1:1 volume ratio, the need for extra coats is eliminated, and the lack of solvents means it also VOC free and environmentally friendly.
High resistance: A polyurea coating provides chemical, abrasion, and UV resistance, as well as being able to withstand extreme temperature changes.
If you’ve got an existing floor that’s damaged or deteriorated, then an epoxy resin coating will provide protection of that substrate; effectively maintaining or even increasing the floor's life expectancy. Reach us at 1800 845 154 for your best polyurea coating service in Australia.
