Polyurea lining technology boasts excellent chemical resistance to many liquids with high build thickness characteristics, rapidly drying finishes, and very low perm ratings. Polyurea is ideal for use in a variety of waterproofing, corrosion control, immersion and lining applications. It can be used for Tank Liners, Bed Liners, Pond Liners, and more.
Polyurea offers excellent adhesion to properly prepared surfaces and is used as an alternative to epoxy, polyurethane, fiberglass and other mat-reinforced lining systems. Polyurea linings combine high tensile strength and elongation properties with low permeability and high impact resistance, making them ideal where a tough, flexible (or hard) liner is needed.
Polyurea is commonly used as a material for lining primary containment tanks, as well as a lining system for secondary containment structures. In fact, many of the world's sea aquariums have turned to polyurea lining technology due to its fast-set return-to-service characteristics, its ability to achieve UV stable colors, and its superior physical properties over conventional linings.
Polyurea protective linings in Michigan (MI) are commonly used for the following reasons:
Polyurea protective coatings provide many advantages to owners, specifiers and contractors in Michigan. When considering your next project, large or small, finding a protective lining technology will likely be of great importance. Being able to withstand widely fluctuating environmental stresses and strains, polyurea liners offer peace of mind that few other protective coatings can match. Often combined with a geotextile fabric, pre-sprayed polyurea liners are recycleable from one location to the next, and can be quickly and (relatively) easily installed to provide a seamless, impervious, monolithic memrane and protective surface.
Polyurea is also used extensively in the water and wastewater industries, and is an ideal liner for most water tanks, including salt water. Polyurea can even withstand most chemical gasses produced at waste treatment plants, as well as harsh UV lighting used to kill bacteria. Several polyurea systems are available for Potable Water applications, and are USDA-acceptable and NSF-approved to ANSI-NSF 61 Standard for potable water storage.
Polyureas are also recommended for lining large diameter pipes, manholes, clear wells and process tanks for potable and non-potable water, basins and reservoirs, lift stations, and reserve fire water tanks.
Polyureas contain no VOCs, and are also available in brush grade for touchup and repairs, and caulk grade for horizontal joints.
