How does Polyurea match up
against other coatings?


Most people in the coatings world for some time will tell you that traditional coatings have lost their touch, so why not try a more innovative coating? There is nothing wrong with sticking with what you know; however, a side-by-side comparison chart showing how polyurea technology compares to epoxy and polyurethane coats will help to highlight the advantages of polyurea over the other options.

It is important to understand how polyurea works compared to epoxy and polyurethane. Both traditional systems can take several days to cure. Polyurethane and epoxy are more sensitive to temperature and moisture conditions. Polyurea is a much more straightforward choice because it doesn’t have these same issues.

Maintenance costs are another important aspect to remember. Polyurea is easy to maintain; all you need to do is wash it. It’s not necessary, but it makes the product look better.

Polyurethane and epoxy will require maintenance. This may mean that there might be downtime.

Repairing cracks with epoxies will likely be the biggest problem, and this is never an easy fix.

Polyurethanes will need to be recoated at least every 4-7 years, depending on many factors. The main reason for this is the weak bond strength with the substrate.
