The ultimate in concrete and steel asset protection, Polyurea has revolutionised the protective coatings industry. The ability to form its superior physical properties in such short time frames, and cure even with the presence of moisture, has resulted in the use of polyurea growing rapidly worldwide. Polyurea is the ultimate coating for protection of steel and concrete surfaces from corrosion, chemical attack and heavy duty service conditions.
Many assets are subject to harsh service conditions. Waste water treatment plants process sewerage containing high levels of sulphuric acid and solids causing their facilities to deteriorate. Concrete structures, such as sedimentation tanks, often leak through unintentional cracks. In the presence of aggressive chemicals this leads to corrosion of steel reinforcement, spalled concrete and ultimately weakening of the structure. Over a long-term life cycle cost analysis, the cost of on-going temporary repairs is more than the cost associated with providing a permanent solution like the application of a seamless polyurea protective coating
Unrivalled physical properties
Inseal pure polyurea is a high performance protective coating that exhibits outstanding physical properties outperforming other coatings with its extended service life
Polyurea is incredibly flexible, with elongation of over 400% and remaining permanently elastic, it has the ability to bridge cracks and accommodate high movement joints subject to cyclical movement without splitting
Inseal's polyaspartic and polyurea range offer excellent chemical resistance to a wide range of acids and alkalis. Chemicals are often used in either the processing, manufacturing or maintenance of many business operations thus require protection of their assets with a durable coating like polyurea
Inseal's polyurea and cures quicker than any other liquid applied coating. The membrane can be rained and walked on with several minutes and 90% of physical properties obtained within half an hour
Our pure polyurea range are 100% solids containing no VOC's (volatile organic compounds), solvents or catalyst and compliant with AS/NZS 4020 - materials used for contact with potable water
Polyureas dense film is extremely tough with excellent resistance to direct impacts. The tough coating bonds with a tenacious vice-like grip to well prepared substrates and has a very high tensile strength, thus retaining its integrity even in the most challenging of environments
Inseal Polyurea Asset protection
Our unique polyurea range have excellent chemical, impact & abrasion resistance. The spray applied system adheres to the substrate with a vice like grip, but remains permanently elastomeric, resulting in a robust protective membrane that will not peel flake or crack. Another major advantage is its rapid cure nature, it can be walked on and exposed to water in minutes, this In turn minimises return to service times.To discover more about polyurea, see ‘Polyurea 101’ here.
