Polyurea Coatings Provide Excellent Protection Against Ultraviolet Damage
Polyurea spray is a versatile coating that can be used for many applications. Spray coating offers high-quality polyurea coating, which is produced by a chemical process of mixing two chemical elements. These coatings are high-performance and serve various purposes like protecting concrete floors, polyurea coating on roofing, polyurea coating on garage floors, polyurea coating on roads and bridges to name a few. Polyurea spray is also used on the following:
Polyurea coatings offer excellent resistance to weathering, corrosion, and stress. When sprayed on concrete floors, it inhibits the formation of the chemically bonded isocyanate component of the concrete. The isocyanate component of the concrete hardens when exposed to direct sunlight or heat. Spray polyurea prevents this reaction and allows the concrete to maintain its original form or may even change into a different color.
Polyurea coating on polyurea roofing provides additional strength to the roofing and allows better aeration. It prevents moisture from seeping into the roofing material and also slows down the corrosion reaction caused by ultraviolet radiation. For this reason polyurea coating is also used on flat roofs to protect the flashing and reduce corrosion due to heat or direct sunlight. The polyurea spray on garage floor also performs the same role as the polyurea coating on roof. This serves to strengthen garage flooring and reduce corrosion and swelling. There are polyurea spray on floor products that serve to act as heat sink during hot days; it is also effective to act as anti-static agent on metals and other composite materials.
Polyurea coatings have several benefits over other forms of waterproofing. Most other waterproofing products, like rubber and asphalt are heavy in density and have limited flexibility, whereas polyurea protective coatings have high melting points and greater structural flexibility. This result makes polyurea protective coatings more effective in cases where water intrusion is very high and resistance to chemical reactions is required. polyurea coatings can also provide greater energy efficiency as the material is more resistant to thermal shock.
Polyurea coating spray on applications have several benefits, including superior chemical resistance and abrasion resistance. This ensures that polyurea coating will not damage or crack underlying building structures. Its chemical resistance makes it ideal for use on roofing membranes, sealants and seal coats and on various metal alloys including stainless steel, aluminum, copper and iron.
In addition to its structural benefits polyurea coatings have another advantage in that they provide protection against ultraviolet radiation. Ultraviolet rays can cause extensive damage to most polyurea components if they are exposed to the sun’s strong UV rays for long periods of time, and these rays can act as catalysts for rapid corrosion. This process speeds up the corrosion reaction and results in faster build up of rust, lead to premature rusting and increase the structural weight of the metal. The fast-setting polyurea spray systems enable coating layers to be applied and cured quickly and in a controlled environment, enabling maximum protection from ultraviolet light.
