Polyurea

TUFFLON® and Elaston® polyurea

Tufflon® pure polyurea comes in several grades each suited to a particular application. Each grade exhibits outstanding abrasion and corrosion resistance, coupled with permanent elasticity, making them (in conjunction with our Civilox® primer) the perfect lining system for protecting concrete and steel assets.

Elaston® is a pure polyurea optimised for waterproofing and application through small portable Graco Reactors. Unlike polyurethane waterproofing products, Elaston® in insensitive to moisture in the substrate and will not blister or crack. It is permanently elastomeric, chemical-resistant, abrasion-resistant and has a much longer lifespan than any other comparable product on the market.

Derived from the original spray polyurea developed by Texaco in the 1980's, there is no other polyurea range in the world with such a long and successful history of use. Designed for abrasion, corrosion, impact and chemical resistance, waterproofing and permanent immersion, Tufflon® protects for the long term.

CHOOSING THE CORRECT GRADE OF POLYUREA: 
Choosing the right grade is not as simple as one product for one application. While all Tufflon® and Elaston® polyurea exhibit the properties listed below, slight variations in formula provide subtle differences that need to be considered. Differences might include hardness, elongation, time to develop full physical properties, tear strength, budget and more. Contact LiquiMix for a proper assessment of the requirements for your project. 

Tufflon® and Elaston® are:

  • Permanently elastomeric

  • Abrasion resistant

  • Chemical resistant

  • Corrosion resistant

  • Seamless finish

  • 100% Solids - no VOCs

  • 5-second gel time

  • Bridges hairline cracks in concrete

  • Excellent adhesion to concrete or steel

  • Will not blister, crack or peel

What makes Tufflon® unique? 

  • PROVEN TO PERFORM
    The Tufflon® system has a long and successful 10+ year
    history of use in lining drinking water reservoirs. No other
    polyurea has such a strong and reliable track record.
  • TUFFLON® CONTAINS NO UNREACTIVE DILUENTS
    Diluents are often used in cheaper polyurea. These can
    contribute to poor performance - especially in permanent
    immersion. Tufflon® will not blister under water.
  • BONDS STRONGLY TO DAMP CONCRETE
    The Civilox® epoxy / Tufflon® polyurea system bonds strongly
    to damp concrete.
  • FAST RETURN TO SERVICE
    Due to the system's fast cure, the asset can be returned
    to service, often after only several hours.

What makes Tufflon® unique? 

  • PERMANENT ELASTICITY
    With high elongation greater than 400%, Tufflon® bridges
    hairline cracks, expansion joints and will tolerate subtle
    movement in the substrate without cracking, flaking or
    peeling.
  • LOW TEMPERATURE CURE
    Most drinking water reservoirs are emptied during
    winter months when demand is low. The Civilox-18 /
    Tufflon® system will fully cure under these cold, damp
    conditions.
  • AS/NZS 4020:2005
    The Civilox-18 / Tufflon® system has passed all
    requirements of the potable water standard.
  • CHEMICAL RESISTANCE
    Tufflon has high resistance to chemicals typically found
    in waste water, sewerage and secondary containment. See our
    chemical resistance chart here.
