History Of Polyurea & Spray Foam




Since the discovery of polyurethane and polyurea in 1937, the progressions in these types of “plastics” chemistry have presented answers to some of the most challenging design goals when presented with the manufacturing framework.
Polyurethane chemistry was fitting for many uses, ranging from; adhesives and paints to protective coatings and sealants. Polyurethane foam revolutionized the insulation for ultra-energy-efficient home envelope design. Polyurea coatings have been formulated to meet the most stringent protective coatings and liners for roofing, containment, flooring, bridge preservation, and infrastructure life preservation.
