Polyurea Coatings and Lining Systems

What are Polyurea Coatings and Lining Systems?

Polyurea is a remarkable coating, lining, and joint sealant technology. Polyurea coatings are 100 percent solids materials formed by the reaction between an isocyanate, which can also be aromatic or aliphatic, and an amine resin. Polyurea coatings are easy to apply and they have a rapid-curing reaction that is not affected by moisture or temperature, unlike other coatings. Polyurea can smoothly adhere to virtually any roof substrate and bolster the roofline along the way.
Polyurea protective coatings are commonly used for structural enhancement, corrosion protection, waterproofing, structural enhancement, as well as abrasion, chemical, environmental, and atmospheric resistance.

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. Discover comprehensive information on Polyurea Coatings and Lining Systems, including their benefits, applications, and how they enhance surface durability and protection.

Polyurea: Remarkable Coating Technology

In the world of coatings, linings, and joint sealants, one technology stands out: polyurea. This remarkable material is a 100% solid coating formed by the reaction between an isocyanate and an amine resin. But what makes polyurea so special?

Meet The Countless Advantages of Polyurea Coating

Easy Application and Rapid-Curing Reaction

Unlike other coatings, polyurea coatings are easy to apply and have a rapid-curing reaction that is not affected by moisture or temperature. This means that polyurea can be applied smoothly and efficiently regardless of the weather conditions. It can adhere to virtually any roof substrate, making it a top choice for bolstering the roofline.

Versatile Protective Coatings

Polyurea protective coatings are commonly used for various applications such as structural enhancement, corrosion protection, waterproofing, abrasion resistance, and more. They offer a level of durability and resistance to chemicals, environmental factors, and atmospheric conditions that traditional materials like paint, epoxy, fiberglass, and vinyl esters simply can't match.

Advanced Technology with Impressive Properties

While polyurea coating technology has been around for almost three decades, it is still considered newer and more advanced than traditional systems. It offers many advantages to owners, specifiers, and contractors. One of its major benefits is its ability to cure and set rapidly, allowing for faster return-to-service compared to traditional coatings. This means less downtime and financial loss for facility owners.

Fast and Accurate Application

Polyureas are typically spray-applied, allowing for fast and accurate application. Depending on the requirements, they can be applied at various thicknesses in one or multiple passes. Additional characteristics like slip-resistant additives, surface textures, UV-stable colors, and even NSF potable water-approved systems can be incorporated with polyurea.

Impressive Physical Properties

Polyureas can be formulated to achieve a wide range of physical properties. From high extension to superior tensile strength, hardness or softness, polyureas can be tailored to meet specific needs. The key lies in the formulation and correct application of the material.

Versatility in Joint Fill and Caulk Applications

Polyurea coatings and linings also excel in joint fill and caulk applications. Their fast-set nature, high elongation, and durability make them ideal for these types of uses. Polyurea can even be molded and shaped by spraying it into molds. It is also commonly used as a hard coat protective shell over expanded polystyrene (EPS) for architectural molded fascia applications.
