Polyurea Coatings for Water Application
Polyurea coatings are being used to coat the inside of water and sewer
pipes for infrastructure rehabilitation work. In addition, polyurea coatings
are being used for potable water tanks. These coatings are also very effective
in protecting steel, aluminum, and fiberglass in a variety of water sport
and commercial marine applications. From sound attenuation for fishing
canoes, to fish-hold liners, to hull protection and bilge liners, polyureas
are used in many abrasion, chemical, and corrosion-resistant marine applications.
Landscape designers and contractors have found that polyurea coatings can
be used to contain water for ponds and pool decorations to perform a primary
containment liner. The use of geotextile material is common when applying
polyurea over dirt.
Polyureas are also used as linings in waste water treatment facilities.
The advantages with this application includes their fast cure time, chemical
and abrasion-resistant properties, and their use as both primary and secondary
The use of spray foam within the water industry includes using Eco-Pur
to help stop leaks and add buoyancy in barges and pontoon boats.
