Many bridges and tunnels need replacing or repaired. Polyurea’s ability to outlast paint and fight off corrosion is a major reason it’s used specifically for bridge deck and structure coating by state transportation departments around the nation.
The most common applications of polyurea coatings are on steel and concrete bridges.
SPI polyurea can preserved structures and reduced maintenance costs because it’s easily cleaned by pressure washing.
Epoxy and paint coating can crack and peel in a short time and required immediate replacement. Polyurea is a perfect solution to seal cracks because of its high tensile strength and elongation properties. The rapid-cure time allowed a project a quick return to service.
Polyurea also have advantages over epoxy and water-based pavement marking products. Because it is a fast-set polymer, it’s ideal to use in line striping and pavement marking. After a few minutes, projects can be returned to service for traffic and pedestrian use.
It is more durable than paint and lasts much longer between maintenance cycles – a clear choice when it comes to cost/performance payback and operation.
Polyurea is the obvious coating of choice due to its excellent durability, abrasion resistance, environmentally friendly and offers a seamless liner.
Polyurea linings are blast resistant, ballistic mitigation, non-skid and corrosion control of all types of transport trucks, helicopters, buses, trains, boats, ships, freighters, first response containers, law enforcement vehicles, fire and ambulance vehicles, etc.
In the air, polyurethane foam is reinforcing airline fuselages. One benefit is fire protection that can extend the time fire takes to burn through an aircraft which can allow passengers more time to escape during a crash.
It can also be used to extend the life of aging air crafts.
