Advanced Coatings Technology

Polyurea Coatings

Polyurea coatings offer an advanced coating technology with many advantages over traditional protective coatings such as epoxy, polyurethane, bitumen, fiberglass, paints, lead paints and vinyl esters.

At CSC Services, we offer a one-stop-shop solution for the application of polyurea coatings to the water and power sectors.

Advantages of polyurea coatings

100% polyurea has advantages that make it stand out from other protective coatings including:

  • Very fast setting (5-20 seconds)
  • Rapid return to service enabled
  • Can be applied in sub-zero temperatures
  • Can be built up to any thickness (mm) in one hit
  • Very high abrasion resistance
  • Waterproof
  • Very high corrosion protection
  • Very high chemical resistance
  • No atmospheric or environmental resistance
  • Comes in most colours for structural enhancement

Polyurea coatings are flexible enough to be used across a range of applications.

Polyurea coatings come in liquid form and can be hot or cold spray applied. They form a very good bond to most structures and materials including:

Typical Uses in water sector

  • Water reservoirs
  • Water tanks
  • Filtration systems
  • Pipeline coating
  • Wastewater infrastructures including inlet chambers

Read our latest article here on how polyurea protective coating can be used on wastewater systems to protect against the effects of hydrogen sulphide degradation. 

Typical Uses in power sector

  • CW cooling systems including: drum screens, water boxes, puddle pipes and culverts
  • Steel storage tanks
  • Concrete bunds
  • Pipeline coating
  • Internal and external pipe-work

How is it applied?

A good protective coating application always comes down to preparation of the substrate or material to which it is applied. Preparation is normally in the form of shot blasting or ultra-high water blasting depending on where the application is to take place and the material it is to be applied to. Application is achieved with the use of our Graco Reactor Hot Spray System. There are cold applied formulas which can be applied using brush, roller or squeegee.

We offer a range of 100% polyurea coatings which have been formulated for different desired physical properties such as:

  • High elongation
  • High tensile strength
  • Hard/soft compound
  • Varying levels of chemical resistance.
