The Simple Truth about Protective Coatings for Waterproofing

← Back to List
It is a common dilemma faced by many industries.  Water damage can create major consequences, such as rust and corrosion, and can shorten the life of your product.  What’s the solution?  The simple truth is that a polyurea solution is effective as a protective coating for waterproofing.

We all know the damages caused by water infiltration.  Roofs can leak into your home or company building and create a mess.  Mold and mildew can result in serious issues, especially with your health.  Buildings and equipment can suffer insurmountable water damage.  Truck beds, vehicles, and storage tanks all stand the risk of destruction from water seepage.  Some of this could be avoided by waterproofing with the right material.  Protective coatings are a definite advantage for waterproofing in many situations.

Protective Coatings for Waterproofing

We’ve already extolled the many valuable properties of polyurea solutions. Its durability is without question. However, you might not realize that polyurea’s waterproofing abilities exceed both epoxy and paint. It’s easy to determine where polyurea can be applied. In fact, it can be considered in the same places that epoxy and paint are used.

Protective coatings for waterproofing are applied in a variety of fashions. For instance, as we mentioned in a previous post, a spray-on bed liner for your truck offers a watertight seal that a drop-in liner fails to provide. At Marvel Coatings, we also offer an Ez-Spray System - Cartridge Gun Polyurea Application System.  Application of the polyurea solution is done with efficiency and ease. Set time is quick regardless of climate.

Polyurea application is adaptable to all types of surfaces, including metal, wood, and concrete. Contractors have used the system in a number of applications. More than one innovative user decided to protect a roof crack using the Ez-Spray system and  it created a waterproofing effect.

Wastewater and sanitation facilities have unique waterproofing needs. According to federal regulations, these facilities need heavy protection so the environment is protected from these dangerous chemicals. These industries have recognized the downfall of using epoxy for waterproofing and to combat corrosion.  Professional technicians are able to assess situations and provide lasting solutions.

Why is this important?  Unfortunately, America’s wastewater infrastructure hasn’t been updated in quite some time.  For the most part, the systems involve concrete and steel which aren't very waterproof.  Take manholes, for example.  They are susceptible to cracks and require repair to circumvent leakage.  Marvel Coatings offers solutions that only require one coat.  The elasticity of the product also allows it to expand with the changes in weather without concerns of seepage.  Dry time is also quick.
