|If you are like most people, you have never heard of Polyurea lining systems. The old standards have consisted primarily of Epoxy and Polyurethane liners. If you haven’t received the greatest results from these methods in the past, you must read on! Polyurea used as a liner is a relatively new idea. It was developed by chemist Dudley Primeaux in the late 1980’s. He was acting on a hunch that a sprayed Polyurea would work as a protective coating.||
Bruce Dwyer uses a mil gauge to check the thickness of the liner.
|His hunch payed off. Over 10 years later, chemists are developing polyurea hybrids and urethanes that are being used for many different protective and lining systems in a number of industries. The potential uses for these products are unlimited.
The advantages of using Polyurea lining systems are quite simple. The most common complaint heard with other liners, such as epoxy, is that they tend to crack under duress. This can be attributed to the fact that they do not possess any expansion or contraction capabilities. The physical characteristics of Polyurea liners are far superior to anything else on the market. Not only do they have the ability to expand/contract, but they also can handle extreme temperatures ranging from -40 Fahrenheit to 350 degrees Fahrenheit without any physical changes to the liner. It will eliminate freight damage from water leakage (no cracks!). This liner will extend the life of whatever it may be applied to.
