What is Polyurethane Coating?
Polyurethane Coating, also known as PU Coating, is a type of protective finish prepared by polyurethane resins, a special form of synthetic polymer formed by the reaction of isocyanates and polyols.
It is a method used to protect the substrate surface against deterioration. The technique of polyurethane coating uses a polyurethane layer applied on a substrate surface to protect it from damage. Polyurethane coating protects the substrate from corrosion, weathering, abrasion or any other form of wear and tear or deterioration process. PU coating is a recommended volatile solvent applied to a surface where high abrasion resistance is required.
PU Coating gives a gloss finish and has high UV value, high workable capacity, impervious to almost all types of chemicals, water and saline atmosphere resistant, and is super durable.
Polyurethane coating is customizable; hence implementing it to have a glossy, muted, opaque, or transparent appearance is easy.
The polyurethane coating is available in various colours and at an affordable maintenance cost.
What makes Polyurethane Coating popular?
- The durability of polyurethane coating makes them softer and more elastic than their epoxy coating. This quality is what makes the floor with PU Coating prone to heavy pedestrian traffic. The slight springiness that polyurethane coating provides allows it to absorb the impact due to heavy loading.
- Floors using PU coating are resistant to abrasion and less subject to dents and scratches.
- With the quality of being highly elastic, floors with polyurethane coating can maintain their original shape and mechanical properties even if the temperatures drop below 30°F
Which structures require a floor with a polyurethane Coating?
PU coating has several exclusive mechanical properties and characteristics that make them an ideal choice for floor coating.
Polyurethane coating is applicable at airports, hospitals, malls or any other busy commercial creations.
Non-flammable water-based polyurethane coating is favourable for application in environments prone to combustion.
Polyurethane coating is also used on wood floors, metals or as a layer on other coatings.
