Polyurea coating is a polyurea based foam that has many advantages over conventional polyurea sprayed on bed liners. This polyurea coating is available in several densities to address different applications. Most polyurea spray products are made with a polyurea liner that provides an extremely smooth surface that can handle both heavy machinery and rough work.
Durability. Polyurea is an incredibly strong material with an extremely high level of thermal stability, which makes it perfect for demanding working conditions such as truck beds. It’s also chemical and water resistant. Temperature tolerance. Polyurea coating dries much faster than most other polyurea based products, as little as only 3-5 seconds is needed for complete drying.
High availability and low cost. Polyurea coating can typically be purchased in a bulk quantity of one hundred gallons at the lowest price. Also polyurea coating is widely available in sheets, tiles, and self-adhesive strips, making it very easy to apply. There is also no need to mix isocyanates or other surfactants with the polymer.
Low physical properties. A common problem with polyurea coating is the lack of physical properties that allow it to be applied to most surfaces. Typical surfactant chemicals have a high temperature resistance, but polyurea coating will expand to fill the space, leaving a hard, unshapeable surface after it has dried. The use of cold rollers, pressure washers, spray devices, or heat guns is also very difficult.
Polyurea coating will not react with any substance. Spray devices must be cleaned before spraying polyurea coatings because any reaction will likely occur during the curing process. Cold rollers and hot water guns will react, however. Any reaction that does occur will be minor.
In general polyurea will not be a good choice for construction applications because it is not easy to clean, is slow to cure, and provides poor thermal stability. However, there are now a variety of polyurea coatings available that can meet the needs of construction applications while providing excellent physical homes. Thermal and physical resistance is much better now than ever before, with polyurea providing better durability and long-term service than other systems. This makes it a good choice for remodeling and restoration projects in commercial and residential areas alike. Polyureas are also excellent for mold removal, asbestos removal, and mold remediation projects in the home.
Polyurea coating is also great in areas where extreme weather is a concern. Extreme heat is easily managed with polyurea because they are easily set up and take off. Polyurea is also able to withstand low temperatures which makes them a great choice for humid areas. Polyurea‘s ability to maintain physical temperature all day long makes it a superior choice for heating and cooling applications. Low temperatures also keep blistering at bay which is a major concern during any type of building or remodeling project.
Polyurea can stand up against blistering and corrosion thanks to its physical properties. It has been engineered with advanced physical properties such as extreme temperature resistance, low temperature durability, and the ability to resist ozone and UV rays. Polyurea can be purchased in rolls and sheets or in spray form. Rolled polyurea is ideal for use in interior finishing products, because it is available in a variety of different densities and thicknesses to accommodate a wide variety of application needs.
