Polyurea protective coatings are commonly used for the following reasons:
- Abrasion Resistance
- Corrosion Protection
- Chemical, Environment or Atmospheric Resistance
- Structural Enhancement
For decades, traditional materials such as paint, epoxy, fiberglass and vinyl esters have all been used to perform these various types of protective coating applications.
Polyurea coating technology is not new. In fact, it has been around and in use for almost three decades now. Polyurea is newer and more advanced than these traditional coating systems, and offers many advantages to the owner, specifier and contractor.
These advantages come mainly in the form of impressive achievable physical properties, and its fast set, return-to-service characteristics. It can also be applied over a variety of different substrates (concrete, metals, wood and more) in a wide range of temperature and humidity environments.
