Definition - What does Aromatic Polyurea mean?
Aromatic polyurea is a type of elastomer derived from the one-step reaction between an isocyanate component and a synthetic resin blend component. The compound is referred to as aromatic due to its superior stability compared to other chemical arrangements with the same set of atoms. Aromatic polyurea is relatively fast curing and insensitive to moisture, making it a popular ingredient in several types of paints and coatings.
Corrosionpedia explains Aromatic Polyurea
Aromatic polyurea has quickly gained popularity in the paint and coating industry since its introduction in the 1980s. This is mainly attributed to its numerous desirable properties such as superior flexibility and durability, impact resistance, slip and skid resistance, high hardness, high tensile strength, and chemical and water resistance. These attributes make aromatic polyurea coatings ideal for the protection of components in the industrial, residential, marine, automotive and military sectors to name a few.
