Polyurea coatings offer a number of advantages over traditional paint options. For instance, polyurea has the advantage of high resistance to heat damage as well as damage caused by chemicals. Furthermore, polyurea‘s ability to self-clean makes it an ideal choice for many applications in the automotive and marine industries. These reasons make polyurea a good option when coating steel and other types of metal alloys as well as sprayed polyurea products.
Polyurea coatings resist damage from both temperature extremes thanks to its unique thermal insulation properties. Durability. Polyurea is an extremely tough material with an extremely high level of structural elasticity, which makes it perfect for tough, hard work places such as truck beds. Polyurea also is water and solvent resistant. Temperature tolerance. Polyurea coating is also able to withstand extreme temperatures, which makes it an excellent choice for vehicle applications where extreme temperatures may pose a problem such as hot or cold weather, low humidity, salt spray, and high speed driving.
The high level of polyurea durability is achieved thanks to its chemical makeup. Polyurea consists of thousands of tiny bubbles that are chemically sealed. When these polyurea bubbles are electrically charged, they become stronger, stretchier, and less brittle due to their chemical makeup. Because of this unique chemical makeup, polyurea coating is much more durable and far more resistive to heat, chemical damage, and environmental effects than traditional paint options. Polyurea liners have very thick layers, and those layers work to resist heat, chemicals, and even abrasions and heavy scratches. Due to polyurea‘s unique physical and chemical properties, there are no harsh abrasive materials used, which makes polyurea truck bed liners much easier to clean and maintain.
Another important polyurea coating property is its physical properties. Polyurea has many unique physical properties, and each property contributes to the unique benefits of polyurea. One of the best physical properties of polyurea is its remarkable ability to resist heat and the extreme physical impact it can take. Polyurea coatings do not heat up like other coatings, allowing them to be quickly and easily cleaned in standard cleaners, and are often found with minimal to no odor. Standard cleaners for standard polyurea coating will not affect its physical properties.
Polyurea coatings offer high resistance to UV rays. This is essential to the industries that rely heavily on UV lighting. Standard spray on tanning solutions and spray on tanning beds are not capable of penetrating polyurea, which means they cannot effectively provide consumers with their desired results. In addition, polyurea coating products are frequently found with UV light inhibitors. These additives allow consumers to protect their tanning beds from UV rays without sacrificing their desired appearance.
The polyurea coating material is also noted for its safety properties. It contains no chlorinated solvents or petroleum-based products, which is important to the cosmetics industry. Resins that contain isocyanate components are commonly found with many sunscreen products today, and this isocyanate component makes the polyurea coating product virtually free from health risks. Additionally, it has been found that when applying sunscreen isocyanate-containing resins directly to the skin, consumers experience little to no irritation.
