StormSkin™ polyurea is a very strong highly resilient super-polymer designed to aid in the protection of building infrastructures, pipelines, bridges, etc. This super-polymer is a derivative of BlastSkin™, a Military-Grade super-polymer, targeting extreme properties such as tear strength, impact and abrasion resistance. StormSkin is a non-breathable polyurea which eliminates water vapor transmission to underlying surfaces. This prevents metals to oxidize or rust under its impenetrable skin. It is used primarily to protect industrial infrastructures, waterproofing containment areas, steel frameworks, natural gas/oil pipelines, surge water walls, tanks reservoirs, rail cars, above and below ground piping, concrete and masonry waterproofing, heavy equipment coating, shipbuilding and harsh marine corrosive environments.

Technical Application Data
StormSkin™ is a two component 100% solids formulation which does not contain VOCs. Skin thickness has no limitation. StormSkin™ must be applied using a 2-component 1500-1800 psi high-pressure liquid pumping heated spray machine. Material and line emperatures may vary but usually initially targeted at 140°F. Thorough mixing of the B-Side component is required during application. Proper safety wear is mandatory. Surface application temperature ranges from 0°F to 150°F with surface dry. Spray cure time 2-5s. Surfaces must be prepped for cleanliness and dryness and may require the use of an adhesion promoter primer to acquire proper adhesion. Functional material operation temperature ranges from -40°F to 250°F. Final top-coat appearance is glossy and slick to the touch. This material will not flow-out or lay-down. Spray coverage at 16 mils is 100 sq. ft./ mixed gal thickness.

Substrate Surface Preparation
Preparation of substrate surface prior to the application is extremely important as durability is only as good as the weakest link in the coating system.
Concrete must be fully cured and should be prepared with a sandblasting, diamond grinding or machine sanding depending on the severity of the concrete surface condition. Similar proper preparation must be performed for metals. Primers also require this proper preparation. Always power clean using mild detergent prior to sanding, etc. Call TechSupport Group for assistance with selecting SSS application system. Also read the Application Page on this website. If patching concrete, use our mineral filled fast-set Acrylic Modified Epoxy applied by trowel. For expansion joints, use Joist Seal applied by hand cartridge dispensing gun. It is always best to perform a test within a small section of the application area prior to full scale engagement.
