K5-UB™ is an ultra high-strength, high-elongation polyurea, originally developed as a resilient blast resistant polymer. Soon after, it was discovered that K5-UB™ is exceptionally resistant to abrasion, compared to other spray applied coatings. K5-UB™ adheres to many polymeric substrates, both new and aged, typically without the use of primers or extensive surface preparation. K5-UB™ can be sprayed on to virtually any surface configuration, at any thickness. Therefore, it can be selectively applied to high wear areas.
Self-priming on most substrates
Impact absorbing properties
Sound dampening noise control properties
Low temperature flexibility
Seamless, monolithic application
Compliant with FDA/USDA for incidental food contact
Abrasion resistant liner for:
- Chutes and Hoppers
- Screw Conveyors
- Slurry Tanks, and Pipelines
- Truck Liners
- Classifier and Shaker Screens
Use K5-UB™ with or without broadcast aggregate to provide a tough durable flooring system
K5-UB™ is available in SPI standard colors (Sand, Medium Grey, and Black). Custom colors will be quoted upon request. It should be noted that K5-UB™ is an aromatic polyurea; therefore, as with all aromatics, color change and superficial oxidation will occur.
Aliphatic urethane, polyurea, and other suitable aliphatic topcoats can be used when long-term color stability and increased longevity in full sun exposure are of critical importance.
