1- Polyurea Coating

One of the areas of coatings technology that Application Services Division has been helping clients with is Polyurea systems. Polyurea is not a specific type of coating but when specified and installed along with the proper surface preparation, primers, correct manufacturer’s materials formulation, proper equipment and trained applicators that follow quality control inspections, it offers many advantages and benefits.


Superior tensile & structural strength

  • Excellent adhesion on steel, aluminium, GRP, plastics, concrete, wood, isolating foams
  • High tensile strength (3000psi/>= 20MPa) while still having excellent elongation
  • Deformation from moving substrate shifts will be reduced
  • Polyurea adapts to sonic and vibratory attack

High abrasion resistance

  • High abrasion resistance (ASTM 4060-90)
  • Superior elongation (upto 700%)
  • stays soft, elastic and extremely flexible
  • No cracking when exposed to constant pounding
  • Tremendous savings because of much longer maintenance intervalls. Epoxies crack and have to be repaired and re- coated. Polyureas guarantee a lifetime of 10 years and more after proper application


High chemical resistance

  • Polyurea is the choice of facility managers for storage of diluted acids, alkali, salt solution, organic solvents and oils
  • Polyurea provides a strong barrier to spills from reaching the environment
  • Ideal for petrochemistry, chemical processing facilities, (portable) water systems, reservoirs, sewage processing, manholes, holding tanks, secondary containment protection…

Thermal resistance

Can be used in moist environments




Polyurea systems that AHT applies:

  • Tank Coatings – Protects steel tanks from corrosion, chemical attack and the elements
  • Tank Linings –Chemical resistance makes them applicable in many industrial settings
  • Secondary Containment – Resistance to many fuels and chemicals makes polyurea ideal for secondary containment protection when tested for compatibility
  • Flooring and Parking Decks – Extremely durable in high traffic areas. May also be used in clean/dirty rooms as waterproofing and protective coating from maintenance pressure cleaning.
  • Pipe and Pipeline Coatings and Linings – Increasingly being used to line the inside of water and sewer pipes for infrastructure and rehabilitation work.
  • Truck Bed Liners – Provides a durable, water and airtight liner for the exterior of pick up, utility and dump trucks. Sprayed on truck bed liners are available in a variety of colors and add protection from impact and abrasion.
  • Fiberglass Protection – Polyurea can be applied to marine vessels, and water park chutes, molded slides and automotive aftermarket fascia and spoilers
  • Joint Fill / Caulk – Provides a flexible, durable, weather-tight and traffic resistant seal for expansion joints & control joints in masonry floors, perimeter joints, panels & doors. Its tensile strength makes it an excellent material to use for bridging cracks.
  • Polyurea can be moulded and shaped by spraying it into moulds. Similarly, Polyurea is also used as hard coat protective shell over expanded polystyrene (EPS) for architectural moulded fascia applications.

  • Effective in protecting steel, aluminium and fiberglass above and in water

  • Sound attenuation for engine compartments

  • Non-skid application on decks

  • Cruise ship, tankships, cargo ships, container vessels, jet-skis, buoys & fender, etc.

2- Spray Foam Insulation

You normally only get one chance to insulate and Spray Foam Insulation is a Better Choice and a Wise Investment!!

Spray Foam Insulation Benefits:

  • Inhibits the Growth of Mold
  • Stops Air and Moisture Infiltration
  • Makes Your Home More Comfortable
  • Saves Energy Costs
  • Can Add Strength to the Building Structure
  • Is Permanent and Will Not Sag
  • Keeps Rodents, Bugs, Dust, and Pollen Out
  • Reduces Capacity Requirements, Maintenance and Wear of HVAC Equipment

Spray Polyurethane Foam systems form a seamless bond to the substrate whether it is horizontal or vertical. There are no seams to leak or allow water to travel laterally through the system.

Spray Foam Creates a Solid Monolithic Protective Roof Shell

Sprayed Polyurethane Foam is applied as a liquid using plural-component spray equipment to fill cracks and crevices. It then expands approximately 30 times its original liquid volume to form a hard, closed cell monolithic roof surface.

The Polyurethane Foam dries within seconds after applied to the roof surface. Its expansion results in a weather tight roofing membrane that is fully adhered to the substrate. Because of polyurethane's lightweight it adds little additional weight to the structure and is often used in remedial applications.

Polyurethane Foam has a history of more than 45 years as a maintainable and sustainable roofing material. Polyurethane Foam adds excellent insulation value to the structure and utility bills can reflect the difference.
