Polyurea Applications - Water Management

Water Management Industry

Water has become the most precious resource on the planet. Potable water is water that is fit for consumption by humans and other animals. An abundant, reliable supply of high-quality, economic well-being of any community. The agriculture industry also needs access to water to grow and harvest the food that feeds the world.

Deteriorating, leaking infrasturcture (tanks, pipes, canals) lose billions of gallons of usable water every year. This wastes a valuable resource, potentially exposing a good water source to contaminants, and reduces billable revenue for water management agencies.

ULC offers a solution to these proroblems with high-performance, elastomeric polyurea coatings. These-high-elongation coatings can bridge over cracks to provide a watertight seal, remaining flexible enough to move with the substrate expansion and contraction during extreme annual weather cycles.

Featured Industry Solutions

Watersafe® UB

Watersafe® UB potable water coating is in compliance with the test passing requirements of NSF / ANSI Standard 61 Section 5 (2011). This advanced protective coating was sucessfully tested by an ANSI nationally accredited lab, and is approved for direct contact with potable water. Watersafe® UB adheres to many polymeric substrates both new and aged, typically without the use of primers or extensive surface preparation. It is a fast-setting, rapid curing, 100% solides, flexible aramatic, two component spray polyurea that can be applied to a variety of substrates including suitably prepared concrete and metal surfaces.

ElastaFlex™ III

ElastaFlex™ III is a third generation pure polyurea waterproofing elastomer. This economical polymer exhibits high tensile strength and very high elongation (>900%), to bridge stress cracks in concrete and oter substrates. It contains no tar, asphalt, or VOCs. It can be walked on in minutes and is usually back-filled in less than one hour.

Polyshield HT™ 100F UB

HT™ 100F UB is a high tensile, high elongation, high build, fast-set, elastomer, specifically formulated to provide a tenacious bond to certain thermoset plastic surfaces. Unlike most spray-applied polyureas, HT™ 100F UB has the unique advantage of adhering to many polymeric substrates, both new and aged, typically without the use of primers or extensive surface preparation. It provides a cost effective, flexible, tough, resilient monolithic membrane with water and chemical resistance.

ULC has over 40 unique polyurea elastomer coatins with a wide range of physical properties to meet your specific project requirement. ULC only produces 100% solids, pure polyurea coatins that contain no VOCs, solvents, or harmful ozone depleting ingredients. Our knowledgeable team of industry experts will work closely with you from your project's beginning to the end, providing reliable coatin solutions, SSPC/NACE standards and project specifications.
