Pure Polyurea

A pure polyurea coating / elastomer is derived from the reaction product of a polyisocyanate component and an amine-terminated resin blend.

For reference purposes, a polyurethane / polyurea hybrid coating / elastomer is the reaction product of a polyisocyanate component and a resin blend component. The resin blend may be made up of blends of amine-terminated and / or hydroxyl-terminated polymer resins.


Definitions of Elastomeric Coatings

ELASTOMER

A material which at room temperatature is capable of being stretched repeatedly at least twice its original length (200% to 700% elongation based on the formulation) and, upon release of stress will return to its original dimensions.

ELASTOMERIC

The elastic, rubber-like properties of a material that will stretch when pulled and will return relatively quickly to its original shape when released.

ELASTOMERIC COATING

A coating system which, when fully cured, is capable of being stretched at least twice its original length (100% elongation) and recovering to its original dimensions.
