Polyurethane Explained

Generally speaking, polyurethanes are synthetic resins or plastics that result from a polyaddition reaction between dialcohols or polyols and polyisocyanates. This is the reaction that gives plastic its rubber-like qualities. The resin is usually a mixture of dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) and dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDPT). In most cases, this reaction also results in a polymer called dimethylene trichloroethane (DMTV)....

How Your Project Can Benefit from Polyurea

  Polyurea coatings offer flexible heavy-duty protection. Despite being used for over 30 years, polyurea coating is the relatively new kid on the block. However, polyurea’s durability, flexibility, and flexibility mean that it has swiftly made a name for itself, now used across industries for corrosion protection, waterproofing, containment, flooring, and mechanical machinery. To list a...

Suppliers of floor coatings to businesses and do-it-yourself  homeowners are extending real-time professional phone support in order to solve the problem of improper installation. The trick to creating a quality floor coating is getting the coating to adhere to the substrate surface without chipping, peeling or lifting. The key is the preparation of the floor...

Concrete Coatings:  Polyurea and Polyurethane the effects of moisture, abrasion, corrosion, and chemical attack.

Polyurea and Polyurethane the effects of moisture, abrasion, corrosion, and chemical attack. Concrete is the most broadly used building material in the world, due to its versatility, sturdiness, and its simplicity that makes it simple to use. But it is also susceptible to producing irregular cracks, which swiftly convert to arteries for water, chemicals, and...

Low Pressure Applied Polyurea

Since the discovery of fast set polyurea spray during the mid-1980’s by Mr. Dudley Primeaux of Texaco Chemical Company®, it has been necessary to apply this newly discovered technology through the use of a plural element high-pressure pump system which could consistently manage processing temperatures ranging from 130°F to 170°F. It was also imperative that...

Polyurea Polyurethane and Hybrids

A “Simple” Look at Definitions: Polyurea- Polyurea can be defined as the effect of a chemical response between an isocyanate and an amine. In chemical coating terms, this is generally a reaction between an MDI or HDI pre-polymer with amine-terminated resins. This is also the formally excluded definition by the PDA. The PDA also supports...
