Polyurea, also known as resin-filled injection Mold, is an extremely versatile material used for many different applications. Injection mold technology has advanced tremendously in recent years because of the many advantages it offers. Polyurea can provide high-quality results with minimal maintenance or upkeep while still providing a cost effective method for high volume plastic injection.
Polyurea is primarily used for flooring applications where wear and tear on the concrete is an issue. This material can also be utilized for countertops, roofing materials, siding, base material and the list goes on. Polyurea can provide a durable solution to the challenge of designing the perfect floor. Polyurea comes in a variety of thicknesses and materials to meet any design or customer specifications.
In addition to flooring applications, polyurea coatings have revolutionized the auto body industry. Polyurea coatings offer a permanent, chemical-free barrier that prevents damage from any type of impact to your car. It can also resist extreme temperatures, protecting your vehicle from extreme temperature fluctuations that could lead to damage or even total loss. Because polyurea is such a versatile and durable product, it is commonly found in bumpers, side skirts, hoods and other parts of the automobile. If you love your car and want to prolong its life, investing in polyurea coating is an excellent choice. With an epoxy coating, you can protect your bumpers from fading and staining, keep your vehicle’s interior clean and dry, and extend the lifespan of your vehicle’s engine.
Polyurea coatings can also give you the glossy appearance that you desire for any area of your home. From doors and windows to bathtubs and sinks, polyurea‘s high absorption level and superior adhesion properties will allow it to adhere tightly to any smooth surface, including stainless steel and wood. In addition, these coatings are also able to prevent any staining from occurring, creating a stain-resistant finish. For added protection, epoxy coating can be combined with an anti-static agent to further enhance its strength and versatility.
Polyurea also offers a number of specialty applications including sports helmets and game bags. A high gloss look is essential when it comes to creating custom helmets and game bags, so epoxy coating is often combined with a high speed injection process for a quick and easy application. Polyurea coatings also make a great option for protecting flooring in a medical or dental practice. Coatings applied to floors help prevent slips and falls, reducing the risk of serious injury for patients who visit your clinic. For clinics with multiple patient rooms, epoxy coatings combined with a fast cure rate are ideal for reducing redness, irritation, and swelling.
As another benefit of using polyurea, epoxy flooring resists chemicals that may be spilled on the floor. When choosing a coating application for a medical or dental practice, choose one that has a moderate to low flash point, which means that it will not absorb or give off any chemical fumes, making it a great choice for medical facilities and offices. Polyurea also provides excellent resistance to heat and cold, meaning that it can resist the heat and impact of hot tires on the floor and cold objects placed on top of it. In addition, if the temperature ever dips, a low conductivity barrier will prevent the cold from penetrating through to the surface of the floor and affecting the painting or flooring in any way.
