Polyurea Coating As Adhesive For Surfaces
Polyurea spray coating has many advantages over other materials. Durability. Polyurea is an extremely durable material with a very high level of thermal flexibility, which makes it perfect for tough, hard working work places such as truck beds. It’s also chemical and water resistant.
Temperature tolerance. Polyurea coatings resist heat and temperature changes, which means that even the toughest environment can’t harm them. Polyurea truck bed liners are even available in extreme temperatures (hot or cold) – meaning that even in the most severe conditions, they’re ready to do their job. They’re also easy to clean, so you can trust that they’ll last you a long time. Polyurea spray coating is also chemical and water resistant.
Minimal maintenance. Polyurea coatings are incredibly easy to care for. Spray on only when needed, use a mild, cotton-based wipe to clean and rinse, and don’t spray and wipe too often. Polyurea dries quickly, maintains its shape, and is very difficult to peel.
Two components provide excellent abrasion resistance. Polyurea coatings feature a hard resin component and a hard inflatable polymer component. The hard resin component contains a fine chain of carbide crystals that has a crystalline structure. When the surface is scratched, the crystals form microscopic cracks that allow liquid or oil to seep into the cracks, cleaning up the scratch. The hard inflatable polymer portion contains a rubber component with small holes that allow liquid or oil to escape through the holes, carrying away any dirt or debris that was not trapped within the molecules of the molecules.
A unique chemical reaction provides superior resistance to heat, cold, and most chemicals. This unique chemical reaction separates the resins from the polyurea coating. The heat and coldness of the two components combine to prevent the coating from vaporizing. With its incredible heat and cold resistance ability, polyurea coating is used in many applications where there is great wear and tear such as airplane cushions, industrial machinery, medical devices, automotive parts and accessories, etc.
The polyurea coating is created by injecting polyurea into molds to form the desired surface. After the injection of the material, it is cured using a special curing process to create the hard surface and improve the bond between the component and the substrate. After the bonding process, the surface preparation is done to achieve the best possible surface adhesion between the polyurea coat and the substrate. The polyurea coating is also able to withstand harsh solvents and chemicals which are part of surface preparations.
