Polyurea Polyaspartic 101When you have decided to embark on the undertaking of resurfacing a garage floor,building a patio, or creating a new deck around your pool, you are likely to be wonderingwhat materials would be best for your project. Though there are many options, recenttrends have indicated Polyurea Polyaspartic as an ideal material for the creation of arange of home improvement or contracting projects. Of course, it is crucial that beforeyou make any decision regarding the supplies that you will use to complete a projectthat you determine if each material is a viable option when compared with thespecifications and needs of your particular undertaking. Going through a quick“Polyurea Polyaspartic 101” can help you understand what this material is and how it isused so you can decide if it would be the best choice for you and your project.What is Polyurea Polyaspartic?While the name is a little intimidating, there is no need for you to get overwhelmed whenthinking about this material. Simplifying it to its most basic of explanations meansdividing the name into its components. Polyurea is a material developed by the nowrenamed Texaco Chemical Company that is meant as an ideal coating or repair materialfor a wide range of applications. All variations of polyurea are two-part procedures inwhich a catalyst is introduced to the resin in order to instigate the curing reaction.Though these materials are highly corrosion-resistant and strong, they tend to beawkward in their application due to their very short pot life. Once introduced to oneanother these components will resist curing for only around 3 seconds so they must bebrought together within the tip of the spray bottle. This requires that constantmaintenance be performed on the equipment.Polyaspartic is a type of polyurea, highly effective in overcoming some of thecomplications associated with other versions of polyurea. The main characteristic of thismaterial is that it is a polymer coating material. They are extremely effective for manyapplications and offer several benefits.What are the Benefits of Polyurea Polyaspartic?There are many potential advantages to selecting this material: • This material cures very quickly, in only 5 minutes to 2 hours depending on the specific formulation and application. • Can be applied successfully at a range of temperatures from very cold to very hot. • The viscosity is equivalent to water, which means that a properly prepared surface can be wetted quickly and effectively.
• The pot life of this material is much longer, reducing the awkwardness of application.• Once cured the material can handle tremendously high temperatures, resist stains and abrasions, and remain clear even in the presence of moisture.• The cured material is also UV stable, which means it will not discolor and will also provide UV protection to coatings and materials beneath the polyurea polyaspartic.• The high film build makes it easy to create a substantial coating more quickly than with other materials.• Surfaces will remain without bubbles even in conditions of high humidity.
