Why ArmorThane Is The Perfect Oil Containment Coating System
WHAT IS POLYUREA USED FOR?
Polyurea roof coatings are the strongest waterproof protective barrier solutions for various low-slope industrial, residential and commercial roofing structures. Used to shield and waterproof, Polyurea is an ideal alternative to traditional roofing methods. A polyurea roofing system will waterproof and shield your roof or deck against damages caused by undesirable weather, expansion, and contraction with temperature shifts, abrasion, corrosion, and high and low-impact stressors.
Concrete is predisposed to cracks due to shrinkage, which could compromise the waterproofing membrane on a flat roof. Similarly, metal decks and metal screws corrode over time, which could lead to water seepage issues. This can be a critical issue when the roof leaks and a solution is required.

WHY USE POLYUREA FOR YOUR SECONDARY CONTAINMENT PROJECTS?
Accidents happen…Who hasn’t dropped their drink before? For most of these instances, the liquid is harmless—aside from a resulting stain on your floor or the inconvenience of cleaning up the spill.
However, spills at an industrial facility typically involve destructive chemicals harmful to humans and the environment. When this type of spill occurs, the containment and cleanup response is vital to minimizing the impact on the environment, business operations, and a company’s reputation in the community.
Today, storage tank facilities are often highly regulated with regular inspections, reports written and certifications earned. When various storage tanks reach the end of their lifespan, polyurea can bring them back to a functional and working condition. The value of using ArmorThane polyurea protective coatings increases the structure’s service life at a fraction of the replacement expenditures.
