Cape Town, South Africa -- BASF Polyurethanes says its Pure Polyurea spray-on coating has recently become available in South Africa.
BASF claims that these Pure Polyurea spray coat elastomers offer "outstanding features, such as excellent durability, abrasion resistance and high chemical resistance."
In addition, Pure Polyurea also offers:
•Zero volatile organic compounds;
•No substances of concern;
•Seamless and impervious membrane;
•Flexible (420% elasticity);
•Excellent noise-absorption; and
•Tolerant of high moisture and humid conditions during application.
The tolerance to moisture and humidity during curing means that the coatings can be applied within a wider window of temperature and weather conditions than traditional coatings, BASF notes.
