Polyurea spray coating is a new development of recent years. This coating supplies a plastic-like appearance and feeling when sprayed on any type of foam. The coating is hard yet durable, providing a strong shell to any foam cut project, and protecting it from break damage or weather corrosions.
This coating could be placed on 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 a fast drying kind of coating. It can be cured even at really low temperatures due to its chemical properties, and there’s no need to use a catalyst. After being coated, the foam could be sanded to a smooth or textured finish, in line with the customer’s needs. It may also be painted with any type of 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. Because the polyurea dries very fast, it needs an efficient mixing and spraying techniques, preferably using a sprayer gun.
You can find other types of coatings which can be sprayed or brushed on foam, including adhesive glue, aqua resin, epoxy coating, fiberglass, vinyl and polystyrene. However, the polyurea is about 100 times stronger. Using polyurea will not just make any foam project breakage resistant; it may also save any business from having to buy an expensive coating machine that costs tens of thousands of dollars.
This material is non-toxic and is completely safe for use polyurethane. Any kind of foam could be sprayed, including rigid foam and soft polyurethane foam. When spraying it, both a smooth and an uneven finish could be applied. In addition, it has many advantages, many 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 if any 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 in a position to serve as isolation, there are many industries that have recently made a big use for it. Many of them range from the concrete industry, flooring, roofing, bedliners, tunnels, pipelines, bridge coating, tank coating and lining, marine, decorative and architectural designs and others. The polyurea is so much more than simply a coating. It can also be a lining and a sealant with endless applications.
