Corrosion Protection: What Are Urethane Coatings?

Epoxy coatings remain as one of the more popular coating solutions for commercial and industrial sites. However urethane coating (or polyurethane finish) is still regarded by many as the most reliable and economical choice when it comes to a high-quality topcoat.

Urethane coatings are better able to resist scratch, impact, and abrasion. It also provide great protection against environmental abrasives like UV rays, rain, snow, etc.

Urethane coating for metals presents a thin film, high gloss finish with exceptional weathering performance characteristics. This coating is used in virtually all industrial markets to provide a smooth durable finish that has superior resistance to corrosion, abrasion, and chemical exposure.

Normally used to topcoat high build epoxy and inorganic zinc, urethane coatings are most effective when applied for custom solutions.

Corrosion Protection Coatings: Epoxy VS Urethane Coatings

Most industrial based organizations often struggle between using an epoxy- and urethane-based coating. Adding to the confusion is the fact that both employ a two-part paint system causing professionals to use their names interchangeably during coating discussions.

There are some key differences between Epoxies and Urethanes, however, making one superior to the other depending on the condition, needs, and environment of particular businesses.

Epoxy is a two coat system with one of the best rust inhibiting solutions for metal coatings. When re-coating steel structures and equipment it is not cost effective to bring the metal back to white metal. For these situations, a two part epoxy is a great product to apply to your lightly to medium rusted surface without too much preparation.

However, a common disadvantage of epoxy paints is that it develops a chalky film on the exterior when exposed to the sun, rain, snow and other harsh environment-based abrasives. This makes epoxies a superior solution for indoor critical equipments.

A quality Urethane two part solution is better for critical equipment uexposed to harsh enviroment. Urethanes provide protection against UV rays and are extremely durable. The only problem with a Urethane top coat system is that it is not a great rust inhibitor. This is not problem if you’re top coating titanium, stainless steel and or aluminum but it can be a problem when you’re top coating a rusted steel surface.

Corrosion Protection: Why Are Coatings Important?

Companies can save up to 25 to 30% of annual corrosion costs in the US if they invest in quality coatings. Without proper coatings, corrosion can have damaging effects on valves, motors, pumps, fasteners, switches, belts, and other mechanical equipment.

In infrastructure, the annual direct cost is around $22.6 billion. Corrosion costs total $47.9 billion for utilities such as gas, water, and electricity.

Reduce costs

  • 25% of costs caused by corrosion is avoided by applying existing knowledge on corrosion protection such as coatings.

Reduce accidents

  • Work-related accidents cost the US $250 billion every year. A lot of those incidents are caused by faulty work equipment. If a structure is free of corrosion, the risk for accidents is significantly reduced.

Save time

  • In the event your equipment does falter due to corrosion, repairing it will take time. Once operations stop, the delay in production will also mean profit losses.
