Civil Infrastructure & Spray Foam Insulation
Demilec's polyurea coatings are being used on bridges and bridge deck
and structures due to its ability to outlast paint and fight off corrosion.
The market for using polyureas as a lining for manholes is rapidly growing
due to the fact a polyurea coating provides solutions to issues such as
groundwater infiltration, installation speed, and many municipal and private
water systems are in need of lining and structural repair. In addition,
polyurea coatings are also ideal for line striping and pavement marking.
Because it cures quickly, it can be returned to service for traffic and
pedestrian use within minutes after application. Polyurea coatings are
more durable than paint, and typically last much longer and therefore
do not need maintenance as often as paint does.
Polyurea coatings are often used for flooring and parking decks because
of their rapid turnaround installation capabilities.
Polyurea coatings have similar uses in architectural design to theme park
applications. It is used as a protective coating applied over spray foam
insulation to create ornamental fascia.
These coatings are also being used to line liquid containment railcars
for their waterproofing and chemical resistance benefits. Hopper style
railcars have benefited from the strength of polyurea coatings and its
ability to resist abrasion. These cars often transport coal, sand, and
other abrasive materials, polyureas are an ideal choice.
