Citadel® Polyurea Coatings announces its Polyurea-1 High Definition™ (HD), the workhorse of their series of Single Component Polyurea (SCP) floor coatings with virtually unlimited pot-life. It is optically clear and very high gloss, giving it a better sheen and making solid colors and broadcasts more vibrant than traditional floor coatings. With 100% UV stability and extremely low VOCs, it serves as the core of Citadel’s® Medici System as well as the top coat for all of Citadel’s® systems in general.
Polyurea-1 HD™, like all SCP Solutions, has a virtually unlimited pot-life, allowing installers as much time as they wish to finish their projects with no waste. It minimizes inventory space by being a single component, and labor with its self-leveling properties that prevent it from forming roller lines, making SCP significantly more profitable for installers.
“Citadel’s® Polyurea Coatings already offers many benefits over epoxy products, we were the first in the market to formulate easy to use Polyaspartics,” says Patrick Ilfrey, CEO/Founder of Citadel®. “But Single Component Polyurea goes beyond even that—it’s the future of floor coatings. It’s got an unlimited pot-life, it’s optically clear, it’s stronger, not to mention all the practical benefits of not needing to mix, measure and store.”
Polyurea-1 HD™ offers several benefits, both to contractors and their customers, over epoxy and traditional Polyurea. Some of its more notable benefits include:
- Unlimited pot life (Installers have more time to put down product and ensure consistency.)
- No waste (It will not cure in the pan, allowing you to use everything you pour out.)
- 100 percent UV stability (It can be used both indoors and out.)
- Easy preparation (No mixing or measuring needed.)
- Optically clear
- High gloss
- Fast cure: 4-8 hours walk-on time (Even with multiple product layers, return-to-service time is less than 24 hours.)
- Year-round installations (Product can be installed in temperatures from zero to 120 degrees.)
- Flexibility and Strength (100 percent more flexible and 20 times stronger than epoxy)
- Extremely low VOCs (Minimal odor and environmental impact)
Polyurea-1 HD’s™ unique composition allows it to retain Polyurea’s usual four to eight 4 to 8 hour walk on time and 24 hour return to service when applied, despite its unlimited pot-life. It also retains Polyurea’s elongation and flexibility, and remains a “green” product.
