What Exactly is “Polyurea”?

Polyurea is a state-of-the-art, high-performance, elastomeric membrane. This seamless system exhibits extraordinary performance characteristics. Polyurea is based on amine-terminated polyether resins, amine chain extenders and MDI pre-polymers. It provides a tough, flexible, resilient monolithic membrane for a wide range of applications. With the absence of VOC’s, polyurea is safe to apply in almost all situations.

What is Involved in Preparation and Application?

The correct equipment and a certified polyurea applicator are essential. Preparation is job-site-specific and each site represents its own challenges. TitanLiner, LLC has a manufacturing representative review each job to ensure proper preparation and application.

What Are the Primary Advantages to Polyurea?

Almost instant cure time. Can be handled/walked on in less than a minute.
Desired thickness can be achieved in a single application.
Can be applied under a wide range of conditions in temperatures as low as -5°F.
Wide temperature range; polyurea is suitable for climates from -40˚F (-40˚C) to over 150˚F (65˚C).
Resists thermal shock .
Resistant to many chemicals.
Can be top-coated.
No VOC’s emitted.
Hydrophobic; affected very little by damp surfaces.

What is the Difference Between Polyurea and Polyurethane?

Polyureas are closely related to polyurethanes. Both are two-component systems made with Isocyanate-based materials. However, while the second component is polyurethane is poly resin, the second component in polyurea is polyether amine. In terms of performance, conventional ployurethanes require a catalyst, which is sensitive to temperatures and moisture. Low temps can slow the reaction and moisture can interfere with the reaction causing blistering and other negative effects. Conversely, polyureas do not require a catalyst. Reactivity for these coatings is fast, typically 3 to 10 seconds! Consequently, they are able to cure at temperatures as low as -5˚F (-20˚C) and in the presence of moisture.

Can a rigid containment be retrofit to my existing location?

Yes, we provide this type of service frequently. There are two options: 1. Close the facility for a minimal amount of time (usually one day or less) and have a crane on site to lift the tanks while our pre sprayed liner is positioned under your tanks and then bonded together with other sections to create a complete impermeable membrane; or 2. TitanLiner can add a containment to a facility while still in service by laying out the liner on the exposed ground and attaching it to the bottom 6” of your tanks. This solution protects your facility from any tank discharge except for a leak in the bottom of your tank.

How much does it cost?

The cost of our linings and containments are dependent upon the size of the project, specifications of the project, and desired thickness of the coating. For specific pricing information, let us know the details of your project: Get a Quote.

How much lead time do you need to schedule a job?

We, like any other service company, strive to obtain 100% customer satisfaction. With that being said, the more time we have to prepare for your job, the smoother it will go. We also understand how business really works; when you need something, you need it now. We have several mobile crews available in each area and normally have the ability to deploy a crew as soon as possible. Several of our now loyal customers have found themselves in a bind and have had to call us for a same day response. We have yet to disappoint when it comes to response time.
