Castable polyurethanes are typically used for their high-performance properties such as abrasion resistance, tear resistance and load bearing capabilities. These extraordinary properties provide cost effective alternatives for many industrial applications, by lessening the downtime in process operations. Having advantages over rubber lining with higher tear resistance and modulus, and steel with weight and corrosion. For longer lasting surface protection than most rubber lining applications.
A primary benefit of using polyurethane coatings is the protection it provides the surface itself. When applied, the coating creates what is essentially an impermeable barrier between the elements and the object it’s covering. With its smooth, hard surface, polyurethane seals out rain, dirt, mud, and other natural surface enemies. It allows provides protection from humidity and oxidation, which can cause corrosion.
