Trafficable Waterproof Membranes
Trafficable areas such as car parking decks, drive through’s, podiums and plant rooms require a robust coating system capable of frequent impact loads and wear from vehicles, plant and foot traffic. Unexposed car parking decks are subject to surface degradation from a combination of weathering and every day usage. Suspended decks are designed to accommodate movement at construction joints, however it is not unusual to see cracks forming throughout the slab, leading to degradation of steel reinforcement by corrosion.
A flexible Solution
Inseal’s pure polyurea is a spray-applied, rapid cure membrane that exhibits outstanding physical properties. With its high flexibility and permanent elasticity, coupled with high tensile and tear strength, Inseal polyurea can bridge cracks and accommodate high movement joints without splitting.
The dense trafficable membrane also has excellent shock absorbing properties owing to its impact and abrasion resistance. Inseal Polyurea is resistant to a wide range of acids and alkali’s thus does not breakdown due to oils and battery acids.
Unrivalled physical properties
No other product in the market can compete with the combined physical properties of Inseal 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
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
It is not uncommon for waterproof membranes or protective coatings to be exposed to puncturing forces during the serviceable life. Inseal's polyurea and polyaspartic will not crack or flake when subject to heavy impacts
Our polyurea and polyasaprtic coatings offer a robust membrane highly suited to frequent vehicular, plant and foot traffic such as car parks, factories, workshops, walkways and warehouses
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
What is Inseal Polyurea
Inseal’s Polyurea is a specially formulated pure polyurea designed specifically for use in waterproofing and protective coating applications. The two component product is processed though specialist equipment where it is heated and pressurised. The material is mixed and dispensed through a spray gun where a rapid cross-linking reaction forms a polyurea coating that can be built to any thickness in one pass. To discover more about polyurea, see ‘Polyurea 101’ here.
Trafficable Membrane Applications
Inseal pure polyurea is designed to withstand the harshest of service conditions. With its unique ability to adhere with a tenacious grip to many well prepared surfaces, providing a durable, seamless, monolithic and elastomeric trafficable membrane, it is the product of choice in the following applications;
- Parking Decks
- Exposed Podiums
- Flat Roofs (subject to frequent maintenance)
- Plant Rooms
- Bin Store areas
