Protecting Against Disease With Polyurea

We have explained numerous times how polyurea coatings protect your vehicle, floor, and other surfaces. It is impervious to impact, resists rust formation, and is waterproof. These coatings are also immune to disease.

Let's take, for example, a hospital worker. You are continually exposed to bacteria and illness. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention agree -- even according to recent data, at least one out of every 25 hospital patients has had a healthcare-related illness. Although this is a significant improvement from previous years, it's still quite scary -- especially if you intend to go to the hospital.

ArmorThane offers polyurea coatings and today we are going to explain how these coatings will help protect you and your loved ones from disease.

Here's how.

Why Use Polyurea Coatings in Hospitals?

The first and most important thing is to keep the coating clean by scrubbing and then disinfecting. Polyurea is the best coating to protect your skin. Hospitals must follow these guidelines when selecting a coating.

Water can seep into tiny cracks and cause mold and mildew. Polyurea coatings can not only repel water but also seal cracks and crevices. In order to keep this area free of mold, it must be kept clean.

Let's now take a close look at the hospital floors. These floors are subject to a lot of foot traffic, and an epoxy coating may have been applied to protect the concrete. We have already discussed the problems with epoxy coatings. The main concern is that epoxy isn't completely stainproof and resistant to chemical spills.

Polyurea is both. If a chemical falls on the floor, the hospital staff don't need to worry about damaging the concrete beneath.

Let's now take a look at the surgical area.

OR rooms and other surgical areas must be sterile. Acrylic latex coatings are sufficient for many areas of the hospital, such as a patient's area. The cleaning isn't as difficult. This is not true for surgical areas. Hospitals must adhere to specific cleaning guidelines for these areas.

The coating must be resistant to constant cleaning. A polyurea coating can protect against chemicals.

According to a recent study by Duke Health, a new UVC device can prevent drug-resistant bacteria in hospitals. It can also help prevent new infections by preventing patients from being left unattended in inpatient rooms. Polyurea coatings also offer UV protection. Polyurea coatings can resist the light and protect the surface below.
