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

Elaston® is a pure polyurea optimised for waterproofing membrane system and spray coating applications through small portable Graco Reactors. Unlike polyurethane waterproofing coating products, Elaston® is insensitive to moisture in the substrate and won’t blister or crack, making it ideal as a polyurea roof coating spray or polyurea floor coating system. This hi-tech polyurea sealant is permanently elastomeric, chemical-resistant, abrasion-resistant and has a much longer lifespan than any other comparable polyurea waterproofing product on the market.

Colourtuff® : PREMIUM ALIPHATIC PURE POLYUREA

ColourTuff® is 100% colour stable, which means it will not turn yellow or change colour even when exposed to sunlight for long periods of time. It is highly abrasion-resistant and remains permanently elastomeric.

When you want a protective polyurea lining with all the advantages of Tufflon® but need it to be colourfast, then you’ll want to consider ColourTuff®. Such applications might include caravans and trucks, interiors and exteriors that require protection, sealing and resistance to abrasion, impact and corrosion. 

LiquiMix’s range of Tufflon® and Elaston® pure polyurea are based on Aromatic chemistry and will change colour when exposed to UV. This has little effect on their long-term performance. Some colours change faster than others.

When colour change is not acceptable, such as flooring where the colour is a part of the design and aesthetics is important, then you will need an Aliphatic polyurea such as ColourTuff®. Easily processed through plural, airless equipment such as a Graco Reactor, ColourTuff® is the latest generation of Aliphatic Polyurea.

ColourTuff® has all the same properties of Tufflon® and Elaston® such as high elongation, extreme toughness and durability under harsh conditions. It is also resistant to many chemicals. ColourTuff® is relatively expensive and so it is typically applied as a topcoat over Tufflon® or Elaston® to give a system that is both beautiful, durable and cost-effective.

Derived from the original spray polyurea developed by Texaco in the 1980s, there’s no other pure polyurea range in Australia with such a long and successful history of use. Designed for abrasion, corrosion, impact and chemical resistance, bunding (bund wall or bunded area), waterproofing and permanent immersion, Tufflon® protects for the long term.

CHOOSING THE CORRECT GRADE OF POLYUREA: 

Choosing the right grade of polyurea isn’t as simple as choosing one product for one application, for example, a polyurea option for a roofing application or a suitable polyurea coating as a spray-on protective coating. 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, colour stability, budget and more.

Wherever you’re located in Australia, we can deliver the right industrial polyurea solution for your specific needs. Looking for a hi-tech polyurea coating for sale or unsure which LiquiMix product best suits your project, for example, polyaspartic, polyurea coatings vs epoxy floor coatings? 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

  • Won't 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
    pure polyurea has such a strong and reliable track record.
  • TUFFLON® CONTAINS NO UNREACTIVE DILUENTS
    Diluents are often used in cheaper polyurea waterproofing coatings and can contribute to poor performance, especially in permanent immersion applications. Tufflon® won’t 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 below.
