Polyurea Package Coatings from Amatech
Amatech is using polyurea coating on foam packaging to create membranes on dunnage that protect its components. This is ideal for the products that require extra cushioning for a delicate, expensive product. We understand that our customer needs exceptional packaging so that products arrive as expected, right from one assembly line to the next. Polyurea provides impressive protection from water, scratches and a bumpy ride to its destination.
What is Polyurea?
Polyurea is a durable substitute to plastisol dips. Almost no coating can compare to polyurea when it comes to attainable physical properties. Polyurea can be formulated to achieve a tremendous range of properties — from high elongation to superior tensile strength to hard or soft, all based on how the material is formulated and correctly applied.
Why is Polyurea becoming popular in the packaging industry?
- Abrasion Resistant
- Does not crack
- Does not lose its physical properties
- Adds durability to cross link foams
- Slows down the color fading process for UV stable colors with an added UV package
- Coating sets quickly to streamline dunnage fabrication
- Durable membrane for long service life
Polyurea can be formulated to achieve a wide range of performance properties
Polyurea can be formulated to achieve a tremendous range of properties — from high elongation to superior tensile strength to hard or soft, all based on how the material is formulated and correctly applied. Examples of the ranges of Polyurea can be as thin as a heating pad to becoming industry strong as a fire retardant covering. Polyurea also has been used as a structured coating on underground pipes. In 2005, polyurea was used to encase old nuclear waste from Rocky Flats Plant, a nuclear weapons production facility in the western United States, near Denver, Colorado. The strength and durability is amazing and we are excited to be able to offer this magnitude of protection to our packaging. Contact Amatech to see how we can apply polyurea to your packaging needs.
