Due to its technical superiority, polyurea coating is becoming increasingly popular in many applications. Polyurea offers several great special features but applying it is slightly different and more complicated compared to other paints and coatings.
With polyurea it is easy to make numerous errors if the applicator lacks relevant competence or does not recognise all the factors that need to be considered. There are two extremely quickly reacting and curing components that need the right conditions in order to achieve the desired outcome. Because of the fast curing time (only 7 seconds) there is no room for errors.
Teknos wants to support its customers and organises training for polyurea products, application, and technology. These professional and advanced trainings can be tailored according to participants’ level of professional skills.
In short, the two-day course gives participants an overview of the basics of material chemistry, its special characteristics, behaviour, safety, possible causes of failure and solutions, equipment, applications, and references. The course ends with an exam, and passing it grants the participant a certificate for official Teknos certified polyurea applicator.

Teknos polyurea coating TEKNOPUR 300 is an extremely resistant and waterproof instantly cured coating for several surfaces, such as concrete, steel, bitumen, and wood.
The other special characteristics of the coating are extreme durability in mechanical stress, elasticity (as high as 400%), and high resistance for chemicals. The coating is also non-slippery and sound dampening.
Typical applications for polyurea are waterproofing of roofs, tanks and pools, floor coating especially where it is exposed to heavy traffic or chemicals, as well as protection and life extension of wearable parts.
