Polyurea coating has been on the Canadian market since the 1980’s, but its durability, flexibility, and versatility means that new polyurea applications are being found all the time.

TOP 5 REASONS TO USE POLYUREA
HOW POLYUREA COMPARES
TO OTHER COATINGS
Why would you choose polyurea coating instead of a more traditional coating like epoxy? While other coatings have their own benefits, polyurea outperforms them in certain areas.
POLYUREA VS POLYURETHANE
Though these coatings are related (both isocyanate-based), they have many differences. When being applied polyurethane based coatings are sensitive to temperature and moisture, where polyurea is not. Polyurea is elastic and can stretch, but polyurethane cannot. It also has a higher tensile strength
POLYUREA VS EPOXY
Epoxies are sensitive to temperature, humidity and moisture during application, with longer cure times than polyurea. Epoxy coatings are not flexible with the expansion of a substrate, and UV radiation will cause it to discolour, unlike polyurea.
Polyurea vs. Cementitious:
Unsurprisingly, cementitious coatings provide little give, and have far longer setting times than polyurea. All cementitious coatings have long setting and curing times.
