Polyurea product coating is a new development of recent years. This coating offers a plastic-like appearance and feeling when sprayed on just about any polyurea coating foam. The coating is hard yet durable, providing a strong disguise to any foam cut project, and protecting it from break damage or weather corrosions.
This coating can be applied to any foam project, including signs, letters, art logos, props and the queen’s moldings. The polyurea coating combines high flexibility and durability with high hardness, and iit s a timely drying type of coating. It can be cured even at very low temperatures due to its chemical properties, and there is no need to use a prompt. After being protected, the foam can be sanded to a smooth or uneven finish, according to the customer’s needs. It can also be painted with just about any paint, including water-base such as latex, or oil-based paint, as well as motor vehicle paint. This coating dries in minutes, providing a tough chemical and abrasion resistant coating, totally free of blisters. Since the polyurea dries very fast, it requires an efficient mixing and spraying techniques, preferably using a sprayer firearm.
There are other kind of coatings that can be sprayed or covered on foam, including adhesive glue, aqua resin, epoxy coating, fiberglass, bamboo and polystyrene. However, the polyurea is about 100 times stronger. Using polyurea will not just make any foam project break resistant; it will also save any company from having to buy a high priced coating machine that costs tens of thousands of dollars.
This material is non-toxic and is completely safe for use. Just about any foam can be sprayed, including rigid foam and soft polyurethane foam. When spraying it, both a smooth and a uneven finish can be applied. In addition, it has many advantages, some of them include high curing speed (even at low temperatures), water resistance, protection from conditions of moisture content, heat, cold and sun, extreme abrasion resistance, resistance to thermal shock, chemical resistance, minimum odour, 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. Some of them are the concrete industry, flooring, roof, bedliners, tunnels, pipelines, bridge coating, aquarium coating and lining, ocean, decorative and architectural designs while others. The polyurea is much more than just a coating. It is also a lining and a sealant with endless applications.
