History of polyurea
The first Polyurea was introduced in the United States in the late 1990s as a coating system that could be easily portable and was commercially successful in a short time. Polyurea can be turned into a suitable product in a few seconds according to the formulation and applications used.
POLYUREA is a two-dimensional elastomer system that is abbreviated to a 1: 1 mixture of isocyanate and synthetic polyethylene and is used in many cases. Polyurea also has a high performance and good thickness that can protect them against impact when hit or covered with different surfaces.
What is the chemical composition of polyurea?
Polyurea is a thermoset polymer that is the reaction product of an isocyanate component and a component component of amino resins. Isocyanate can be aromatic or aliphatic, monomer, polymer, quasi-prepolymer or a prepolymer.
New generation polyurea surface coating
Polyurea is a new generation of surface coatings and in fact a revolution in surface coating technology. Polyurea is a two-component polymer coating that is sprayed hot on special surfaces by special machines, has a very high application speed, and after about 8-12 seconds from the time of spraying, the drying process begins. Unlike polyurethanes, pure polyurea does not have a catalyst, which increases the physical and mechanical properties of the coating.
Polyurea is a coating of modern chemistry
Epoxy coating or “polyurea” is one of the chemical formulas of the modern world. Some of these modern formulas are used to facilitate human daily life in all fields. Epoxy is an original Greek word, epoxy and polyurea coating are used in all regions and industries and can cover a large area of our lives, but this product still has a long way to go because it is not widespread. One of the reasons it is widely used today is its high durability against corrosion, abrasion and sunlight.
Also, the second component of this coating, unlike polyurethanes, is composed of amine resins instead of polyol resins, which allow the polyurea flooring to be applied in conditions where the relative humidity of the environment is high. This coating is 100% solid and does not contain any organic volatiles and organic solvents, so it is environmentally friendly and has sufficient compatibility for contact with food or drinking water.
