Polyurea – How It Can Be Used

Polyurea is a type of elastomer that is derived from the reaction product of an isocyanate component and a synthetic resin blend component through step-growth polymerization. It has a nearly endless applicable uses.

  • Prevent or reduce risk of wear, tear and/or puncture
  • Prevent water penetration
  • Stabilization
  • Containment
  • Structural stability

What is Polyurea?

Polyurea is an instant set membrane spray-on coating with a high abrasion resistance, high chemical resistance, excellent durability, and excellent flexibility. Polyurea functions as a high quality protective coating membrane providing excellent protection for concrete surfaces from water and chemical attack and is seamless and fully adhered to the substrate it is applied to so no water or debris can get behind the coating.

Vendors and Manufacturers have developed formulations to cover a very wide variety of requirements from extreme surface hardness to extreme elongation. Our job as coating system contractors is to determine all the specifics of your project and select the right Polyurea and top coats when needed.

Benefits of Polyurea

  • Sets in seconds and is fully cured in minutes
  • Seamless monolithic membrane is flexible, impervious, and waterproof
  • Impact and abrasion resistant
  • Chemical and corrosive resistant
  • Zero VOC’s
  • Custom formulations and thicknesses depending upon application criteria
