Why Are Polyurea Coatings Ideal for the Healthcare Industry?

The primary concern in the healthcare industry is patient safety and well-being. Maintaining a safe environment in medical facilities means ensuring that all areas are clean and free of potential hazards. It also means that the floor and wall coverings should be virus and bacteria-resistant because patients face a constant risk of acquiring a secondary infection.

Polyurea Coatings for Healthcare industry

Below we look at several reasons why you should consider using polyurea coatings in your medical facility.

Polyurea Coatings Are Chemically Resistant

The medical industry requires a high level of cleanliness and sterilization as hospitals and other medical facilities are constantly exposed to hazardous chemicals. Polyurea coatings are chemical-resistant and can withstand the harsh cleaning chemicals used in medical facilities. In addition, if harsh chemicals spill on the floor, they won’t seep through the coating and deteriorate the concrete underneath. This makes polyurea an ideal choice for protecting surfaces in medical facilities.

Polyurea Coatings Are Long-Lasting and Abrasion-Resistant

One of the keys to the prevention of bacterial contamination is the maintenance of smooth surfaces throughout the facility including walls, ceilings, and floors, which are easy to clean and sanitize. Polyurea coatings are known for their durability and resistance to wear and tear. Not only do polyurea coatings cure fast, but they are also very flexible due to their elastomeric properties. This makes them an ideal choice for protecting surfaces in high-traffic areas, such as medical facilities. 

Polyurea coatings can easily withstand the constant wear and tear of foot traffic and will not scratch or chip easily. In addition, polyurea coatings are resistant to sanitization and power washing techniques, so they won’t get damaged when washed. As these coatings don’t chip or crack it prevents harmful microbes from getting into these damaged areas and multiplying.
