Polyurea Protective Industrial Coatings

Polyurea Industrial Containment Coating

Polyurea protective coatings applied by Northern Spray Solutions have many applications in the industrial field.

Polyurea is a kind of elastomer (a polymer with elasticity) and it’s relatively new to the market place – it was developed using a blend of traditional polyurethane technology with newly developed chemical components. Polyurea is far superior to polyurethane in that it has a much higher temperature resistance and it’s hydrophobic (it cures in the presence of water).

Polyurea coatings are also non-toxic, eco-friendly, and contain no VOCs or solvents. In fact, many Polyurea coatings are NSF/ANSI 61 certified for use in potable water storage applications.

Polyurea Spray Elastomers can provide effective solutions in the following industrial applications:

  • Corrosion Resistance on Concrete & Steel
  • Primary & Secondary Containment
  • Hazardous Materials Containment
  • Abrasion Resistance
  • Roof & Floor Protective Coatings
  • Waterproofing
  • Earth Containment & Erosion Resistance
  • Structural Reinforcement & Seismic Reinforcement
  • Tank, Water storage and Aquifer Linings
  • Water Features and Pond Liners

Polyurea coatings are a good fit for industrial applications such as containment, pipelines and tanks because they have a much quicker gel, tack and cure time and they also have high chemical resistance to many acids and gases. With proper application, polyurea can bond to many substrates like wood, concrete, metal, fiberglass, plastic, rubber and polyurethane foam. Polyurea can set very quickly – often in less than 20 seconds – which helps return areas to use faster so that there is less revenue loss. It cures in low temperatures, high temperatures, and even in high humidity.

When it comes to industrial coating applications, nothing can compare to polyurea. It’s a good choice because of its high performance and eco-friendly nature.
