Abstract: So you want to be in the polyurea spray elastomer / coating application business? Maybe you already are or have other coating technology application experience.
That’s great! Are you obtaining and using the proper equipment to insure a successful application? Hopefully so, but there are some issues that most people take for granted that usually end up costing time or money before the project is complete.
This paper will focus on the basic equipment requirements for proper application and processing of this fast cure coatings technology. The auxiliary equipment required; as well as and most importantly, the proper organization and safety will also be addressed to insure you are doing a professional, cost effective job.
