Polyurea is a type of elastomer (a polymer with the property of “elasticity”) that is derived from the reaction of an isocyanate component and a synthetic resin blend component.   Polyurea was developed utilizing traditional polyurethane technology combined with newly developed chemical components and its use is relatively new in the market place.  These new chemical compositions display much superior physical properties than its polyurethane precursors, especially being hydrophobic (allowing for curing in the presence of water) and exhibiting much higher temperature resistance. 

Furthermore, pure Polyurea coatings are eco-friendly, non-toxic, and contain no VOCs or solvents. In fact, many Polyurea coatings are NSF/ANSI 61 certified for use in potable water storage applications.

Key areas where Polyurea Spray Elastomers can provide effective solutions:

  • • Corrosion Resistance on both Concrete and Steel
  • • Primary & Secondary Containment
  • • Hazardous Materials Containment
  • • Abrasion Resistance
  • • Roof & Floor Protective Coatings
  • • Waterproofing
  • • Structural Reinforcement
  • • Seismic Reinforcement
  • • Tank, water storage and aquifer linings
  • • Water Features and Pond Liners
  • • Earth Containment & Erosion Resistance
  • • Aquariums - many of the worlds aquariums are now using polyurea lining technology
     

Chemical characteristics of Polyurea provide much faster reaction periods yielding much quicker gel, tack and cure times critical to containment, pipeline, tank and other coating applications, while providing the desirable cold-temperature applicability and unlimited film build-ups. Polyurea also has excellent chemical resistance to many acids and gases, provides for very low permeability ratings and has the ability to achieve UV stable colours.

With proper surface preparation in accordance with SSPC / NACE / ISO standards, an applied Polyurea system will bond to a variety of different substrates, such as metal/steel, wood, concrete, fibreglass, plastic, rubber, and polyurethane foam, and will provide significant protection in waterproofing, abrasion & corrosion control, immersion and lining applications. Furthermore, application formulations can be engineered to meet client specific requirements.

In corrosion, chemical and abrasion environments, empirical evidence shows that Polyurea coatings out perform traditional coating systems used in industrial settings and are used as an alternative to rubber, epoxy, polyurethane, fibreglass and other lining systems.

Polyurea’s major benefit is its fast set nature, often less than 20 seconds.  It can typically return an area to service many times faster than traditional coatings, allowing the owner to put the facility back in use without days and weeks of revenue losing down-time. Almost no coating can compare to Polyurea when it comes to attainable physical properties including high elongation, abrasive resistance, superior tensile strength, and hard or soft characteristics.

VersaFlex FSS 50DM is a superior metal coating material designed specifically for industrial applications receiving constant or intermittent attack from contained materials, most corrosive substrates and abrasive action. FSS 50DM may be used to coat any properly prepared substrate. FSS 50DM is flexible, accommodating to movement of the substrate, yet strong enough to remain intact under all conditions except major structural dislocations.

VersaFlex FSS 45DC is a superior coating material designed specifically for industrial applications receiving constant or intermittent attack from contained materials, subsurface hydrostatic pressure, most corrosive substances, and abrasive action. FSS 45DC is flexible, accommodating to movement of the substrate, yet strong enough to remain intact under all conditions except major structural dislocations.

VersaFlex FSS 45DC-F is a superior concrete and metal coating material designed specifically for industrial applications receiving constant or intermittent attack from contained materials, most corrosive substrates and abrasive action. VersaFlex FSS 45DC-F is flexible, accommodating to movement of the substrate, yet strong enough to remain intact under all conditions except major structural dislocations.

VersaFlex VF 380 is a 100% solids elastomeric polyurea developed for applications such as geotextile lining membranes. VF 380 may also be applied to concrete and steel substrates.VF 380 is a volatile free, odorless system applied with 1:1 mix ratio with plural component spray equipment.

VersaFlex VF 330 is a fast set, rapid curing, 100% solids, flexible, two-component abrasion resistant polyurea elastomer spray coating material. VF 330 may be used by itself or in combination with other materials to produce coatings, liners, wearing courses, resilient surfaces on metal and other substrates.

VersaFlex VF 20 primer may be used with VersaFlex rapid curing polyurea sealants and spray coatings systems. It is designed for use in both interior and exterior priming situations. Allow VF 20 to properly cure prior to topcoating.

VersaFlex Quick Mender® may be used with all VersaFlex rapid curing polyurea sealants and spray coatings systems. It is designed for use in both interior and exterior concrete repair or parging situations.
