Different industrial protective coatings possess various chemical as well as physical properties such as corrosion resistance, durability when exposed to UV radiation, and so on. But there is no coating that can provide all the protection that a structure requires. This is why structures are coated with at least one or more coating types to create an overall protection coating system or a system that provides all the chemical-physical, galvanic and chemical protection needed to shield the structure from the elements.
Knowing the most commonly used general coating types and how they interact to create a comprehensive protective coating system- allows owners and designers to select the best system for their current service location.
Apply protective coatings to truck bed liners, RV roofs, secondary and oil spill containment, garage floors, waterproofing basements, and much more. Applicators have access to ArmorThane High-Performance Polyurethane and Polyurea Coating products and spraying systems.
Polyurea Protective Coatings:
- Extremely durable, it is 20 times stronger than epoxy.
- Repels corrosion-causing chemicals such as salt, battery acid, and oil.
- Has 98 percent more elasticity than epoxy, allowing for the natural movement of the substrate. It is not likely to be able to peel or crack.
- Reduces the risk of employees sliding or falling off the flooring. Polyurea is textured to increase safety and decrease accidents and liabilities.
Polyurea is able to bond to many substrates, such as wood, metal, and concrete. It is able to set up quickly, allowing you and your employees to get back to work faster.
Spray-on polyurea coatings comprise two parts. When applied, they mix with the spray gun, immediately triggering a chemical reaction that is permanently bonded with the substrate. Polyurea will tack in seconds and cures in just minutes.
This High-Performance Protection Coatings application process incorporates high temperature and high-pressure heating both components to 150degF before applying them in 1:1 ratio with no under 1800 pounds. The intense heat and high pressure allow for a wider spray pattern, resulting in an extremely smooth surface. The molecular bond created through heat and pressure creates an extremely durable coating better than the cold low-pressure system utilized by some commercial sprayers.
