Concrete Coating Systems

The technical committee of the ACI-Kuwait Chapter has arranged a technical seminar in association with Al Gurg Fosroc Company and Boodai Trading.

The seminar entitled "High Performance Polyurea Systems" was held on 28th April 2008. Mr. Dennis Jacob, Business Development Manager of Fosroc, who also is a National Association of Corrosion Engineering certified Coating Inspector was the main speaker.

Polyurea product lines primarily comprise of high performance fast setting polymers that include pure polyureas, pure polyurethanes and hybrids or composites which combine features and benefits of these two different chemistries.

These different formulations provide varying degrees of properties designed to meet specific needs in chemical resistance, abrasion resistance, tensile strength, impact resistance, fire resistance, etc., while providing similar features and benefits to the end-user. The features common to these products are fast-gel and cure times, moisture and temperature insensitivity, outstanding physical and mechanical properties, durability, excellent adhesion to a variety of substrates and long term maintenance of properties.

The speaker focused on the different types of polyurea systems along with their benefits, advantages and uses. The event, which was followed by dinner, has attracted a large number of interested ACI-Kuwait Chapter members.
