Are the polyurea products you market considered aliphatic, or aromatic? What’s the difference between the two types?
The polyurea products available from Spray Lining and Coatings can generally be provided in either aromatic or aliphatic formulations. The aliphatic is typically about twice the price for most formulas (aromatic is standard). The only significant difference is for white with respect to color stability. If applying polyurea in white, we recommend top coating with our aliphatic polyurethane single part product in white or clear for lasting color stability.
Most polyurea applications don’t benefit significantly from the extra cost of an aliphatic coating when it comes to our products. If eventual color fading is a critical issue and you do not want to topcoat with our aliphatic polyurethane, you are still better off applying a majority of the coating in aromatic, and then just the final color in aliphatic.
Due to the low demand for aliphatic polyurea, you may also find that the products have to be specially blended for your order. This may cause delay in processing your order for shipment.
