The resin blend component (B-side) of our polyurea spray elastomer systems are normally the pigmented side. Solid pigments are used so as to increase the performance characteristics of the elastomeric coating produced. As is the case with all pigmented systems, the pigment will have a tendency to settle to the bottom over time. Even though a high shear dispersion technique is used for most system preparations, this can still occur.
Find out why it’s so important to agitate the B-side of your polyurea materials and learn several methods to do it in the field.

Dudley J. Primeaux II, has been directly involved in the polyurea story since the early development works back in the 1980’s. His background is in Organic Chemistry where he holds a Master of Science Degree. He also has a very high degree of mechanical abilities, which proves useful in field application / equipment usage.
Dudley has authored over 40 technical papers relating to the polyurea industry, is named inventor on over 25 US Patents and 8 European Patents. He has experience in the preparation of new raw materials, formulation development, application equipment usage, field application work and failure analysis of coating / lining projects. He knows more about polyurea than most in the industry.
