<strong>What is Polyurea?</strong>
Polyurea is an organic polymer, meaning, two or more polymeric compounds react resulting in a plastic or rubber consistency polymer.
<strong>Where can you use polyurea</strong>
Plyurea can be used on cement or metal layers. It dries instantly when in contact with the primary layer.
<strong>Does polyurea have a good adhesion to metal</strong>
Polyurea can pe applied to sandblasted metal (white or almost white), with a proper rugosity (approximately 100 microns). Under these circumstances, the adhesion is great without even using primes.
<strong>How do you apply polyurea</strong>
Polyurea can be applied by special instructed teams or by our company, using specialized equipment.
<strong>How long does the polyurea system last for applied to concrete </strong>
Polyurea is a new system, applied for only 12 years now. By accelerate lab tests we have time resistance estimations. We tested the system to 50o C saline mist (spray) for 3000h and the results showed no signs of rust of reduced adhesion.

<strong>Which are the most frequent problems in applying epoxy resins for floors</strong>
Air in the auto-leveling epoxy resin film because of the fast mixing process or because of the painting roll, 90% cases because of the resulting gases from cement. The holes in the film are due to the air caught under the film in tiny spaces on the surface. Air may expand before the film dries from sunlight. Low material temperatures (superficial tension), meaning, bubbles may appear due to the tension difference between paint and the grease or silicon particles (sometimes even dust particles). The bubbles are a layer processing problem.
<strong>What is RapidShield</strong>
RapidShield is a high performance system for coating concrete surfaces (old or new). It is mono-component and it is paint roll applicable. It is a UV-drying system that needs a mobile unit that has UV rays.
