Polyurea

Polyurea coating protecting for commercial rooftopsPolyurea protective coatings are commonly used for the following reasons:

  • Abrasion Resistance
  • Corrosion Protection
  • Waterproofing
  • Chemical, Environment or Atmospheric Resistance
  • Decoration
  • Structural Enhancement

For decades, traditional materials such as paint, epoxy, fiberglass and vinyl esters have all been used to perform these various types of protective coating applications.

Polyurea coating technology is not new. In fact it has been around and in use for almost three decades now.

Polyurea coating applied around existing structures

Polyurea is newer and more advanced than these traditional coating systems and offers many advantages to the owner, specifier and contractor.

These advantages come mainly in the form of achievable physical properties, and its fast set, return to service characteristics. It can also be applied over a variety of different substrates (concrete, metals, wood and more) in a wide range of temperature and humidity environments.

Most industrial use polyureas are spray applied, so it is fast to apply and accurately proportioned and mixed. This application style allows for virtually any mil thickness to be applied in one or multiple passes. Additional characteristics such as slip resistant additives and surface textures can also be incorporated, UV stable colors can be achieved, and even NSF potable water approved systems are also possible with polyurea.

Roofed Right America contractors applying polyurea coatingqAlmost no coating can compare to polyurea when it comes to attainable physical properties. Polyureas can be formulated to achieve a tremendous range of properties from high elongation to superior tensile strength to hard or soft, all based on how the materials is formulated and correctly applied.

Most roofing systems cannot tolerate chemicals. Polyurea Roofing Systems will resist corrosive chemical fallout that can be exhausted onto a roof’s surface from the production areas inside of the building or from a neighboring building.

Polyurea Roofing Systems can actually withstand permanent standing water conditions. Not many roofing systems can make this claim.  The family of polyureas used on roofs are used as secondary containment ponds liners that must not leak.

The Crown Silicone Polyurea System has tremendous puncture resistance. It has 10 times the puncture resistance of an EPDM single ply roofing membrane.

Polyurea Roofing Systems have excellent elastomeric properties and can achieve up to 1200% elongation. Polyurea Roofing Systems are offered by Roofed Right America across the nation.
