Spruce Up for Spring: 5 Signs You Need a Professional Power WashingAugust 25, 2020
You’re committed to doing everything you can to protect both your commercial building and the equipment you use every day.
You know that finding the right type of commercial coating can make that happen, and you’re starting to explore your options.
So, what is polyurea coating?
In a nutshell, it’s an incredibly flexible coating designed to protect steel and concrete from resistance, abrasion, and other forms of damage. It can also help when it comes to joint fill applications and caulking.
But why is polyurea coating such a good option for you, and where can you find reliable, experienced professionals who can help you with polyurea applications?
Keep on reading this post to find out.
1. Faster Curing Times
Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of polyurea coating is its incredibly fast curing/reaction time.
This also means that the coating works even in extreme temperatures and moisture. Polyureas are resistant to both moisture and humidity. It can even be applied when condensation is present thanks to its superior adhesion properties.
Unlike other coatings, which may require you to wait anywhere from 24-48 hours before you can resume use, polyureas cure in under a minute (usually under 10 seconds.)
This means you’ll be able to use the coated in no time flat, avoiding the losses that come with extended downtime.
It’s no secret that polyurea is one of the most durable and abrasion-resistant coating options.
But it’s also resistant to fire and heat.
This is due in large part to the formula used to create polyurea, which prevents it from sagging and getting distorted by the heat. It is also resistant to smoke.
Best of all, however, is the fact that polyurea is able to self-extinguish if it comes in contact with a flame for over 20-30 seconds.
3. Lower Volatile Content
Another reason why so many businesses rely on polyurea for their commercial coating needs?
Because, unlike polyester fiberglass, FRP systems, and other options, polyurea works quickly and produces far less (if any) harmful styrene emissions or fumes. This is especially important if you’re working in a confined area.
It also makes polyurea a popular option for wall and floor coatings in chemical storage, the food, and beverage industry, and much more.
4. Long-Lasting Solutions
Whether you’re interested in polyurea floor coating, creating a barrier for your truck bed, or even coating molded parts, we know you’re interested in long-term solutions.
Polyurea coatings are resistant to weather, and they’ll also maintain their color for much longer than other kinds of coatings. This often isn’t the case with some powder coatings or even plastisol options.
So, in addition to extending the life of whatever you’re coating, you also won’t have to worry about frequent polyurea reapplication.
