Polyurea spray coating is just a new development of recent years. This coating provides a plastic-like appearance and feeling when sprayed on almost any foam. The coating is hard yet durable, providing a powerful shell to any foam cut project, and protecting it from break damage or weather corrosions.
This coating may be applied to any foam project, including signs, letters, logos,props and crown moldings. The polyurea coating combines high flexibility and durability with high hardness, and iit s an easy drying kind of coating. It may be cured even at suprisingly low temperatures because chemical properties, and there’s no need to utilize a catalyst. After being coated, the foam may be sanded to a smooth or textured finish, in line with the customer’s needs. It can also be painted with almost any paint, including water-base such as latex, or oil-based paint, along with automotive paint. This coating dries in minutes, providing a tough chemical and abrasion resistant coating, free from blisters. Since the polyurea dries very fast, it takes an efficient mixing and spraying techniques, preferably using a sprayer gun.
You will find other forms of coatings that can be sprayed or brushed on foam, including adhesive glue, aqua resin, epoxy coating, fiberglass, vinyl and polystyrene. However, the polyurea is all about 100 times stronger. Using polyurea won’t just make any foam project breakage resistant; it will even save any company from having to buy an expensive coating machine that costs tens of thousands of dollars.
This material is non-toxic and is wholly safe for use. Almost any foam may be sprayed, including rigid foam and soft polyurethane foam. When spraying it, both a smooth and an uneven finish may be applied secondary containment. Furthermore, it has many advantages, some of them include high curing speed (even at low temperatures), water resistance, protection from conditions of humidity, heat, cold and sun, extreme abrasion resistance, resistance to thermal shock, chemical resistance, little or no odor, good adhesion to the material it is sprayed on and unlimited application thickness.
Due to the polyurea unique physical and chemical properties, especially being hard and able to serve as isolation, there are many industries that have recently made a large use for it. Many of them include the concrete industry, flooring, roofing, bedliners, tunnels, pipelines, bridge coating, tank coating and lining, marine, decorative and architectural designs and others. The polyurea is a lot more than just a coating. It is also a lining and a sealant with endless applications.Read More
