Coatings

Polyurethanes offer the most versatile range of engineered properties which allows for the formulation of extremely durable, abrasion resistant coatings with extremely high mechanical properties and resistance to the elements of the intended work environment. Industrial Polymers began in the coatings industry over 30 years ago and since then, we have developed spray in truck bed liners for private consumers, protective coatings for industrial, commercial, and military vehicles. We also have coatings compliant with US Military Specifications.

We manufacture coatings for metal, wood, urethane roofs, ropes, concrete, masonry, soft foam, or EPS foam. Finishes range from hard, protective coatings or flexible, glass smooth coatings to ruff non-skids, sandable and paintable. Our coatings offer resistance to impact, salt water, elements, acid, alkalis and for UV stability.

Here are a few attributes that will determine the proper selection of the Polyurethane coating for the target application.

Specific Applications

Abrasion Resistant Rope Coatings

We manufacture products used in coating rope, fabric and netting. These coating are easy to mix and apply no special application equipment is required, simply mix and apply by gloved hand. See our rope coating demonstration video.

Urethane coatings enhance the strength and durability of rope fabrics and netting by providing an abrasion resistant wear surface and sealing out water & debris.

Depending on usage, we recommend two of our product lines for semi-flexible to flexible rope coatings, both are highly rated for high build applications

Semi Flexible Rope Coating

high strength coatings for synthetic ropes and slingsPurecast 603 is the most abrasion resistant high build flexible coating we manufacture. It is recommended for coating rope, fabrics and netting where the highest abrasion resistance and durability is required, we offer a selection of 18 color pigments sold separately. PureCast 603 is a solvent free low odor coating which can be applied in one or more coats as required. PureCast 603 is a US military specification product used in the manufacture of helicopter lifting slings. The cured hardness is 40 Shore D, see technical data bulletin for complete information. Purecast is compatible with most synthetic or natural fiber ropes or fabrics. 

PureCast 603 is a two-component polyurethane that comes in convenient one-gallon kits and is offered in larger sizes for different applications. Pigments are sold separately in pre-measured tubes – one tube is required per mixed gallon of coating. The base resin is clear and then the pigment allows you to choose the color needed for your application. PureCast 603 contains no solvents and is classified as a nonhazardous material for shipping purposes.

To improve penetration of the coating into tightly woven fabrics or braided lines you may add 5% by volume Toluene solvent to reduce viscosity.

Flexible Rope Coating

protective coating for marine mooring ropes and nylon lifting slingsTrueKote CS 100 is a tough elastomeric that been used extensively as a protective coating for marine mooring ropes and nylon lifting slings. The coating has excellent resistance to UV and saltwater and is easily applied by hand, brush or roller. 100% solids contain no hazardous V.O.C.’s. in addition this polymer can be molded into thick castings for encapsulation of rope terminations and eyes or rubber parts.

It is recommended for coating rope, fabrics and netting where abrasion resistance and flexibility are required; we offer a selection of 18 color pigments sold separately. TrueKote CS 100 is a softer more flexible coating than the Purecast 603 product. It provides lower abrasion resistance than our Purecast 603 with a softer hardness of 82 Shore A. It is easy to mix and apply by hand no special equipment is required. Customers will choose this coating when greater flexibility and less abrasion resistance are required.

TrueKote CS 100 has been successfully used to coat Kevlar fabric lifting slings providing waterproofing and wear resistance. TrueKote CS 100 is compatible with most synthetic or natural fiber ropes or fabrics see technical data bulletin for complete information. TrueKote CS 100 contains no solvents and is classified as a nonhazardous material for shipping purposes.

Rope Eye Encapsulation

cast in place rubber onto rope and fabricTrueKote CS 252 is a flexible rubber potting compound used to cast around the neck of braided rope eyes. This product is used with a mold to cast in place rubber onto rope and fabric. It provides flexibility and high elongation where rope eyes experience load stretching. TrueKote CS 252 is a US military specification product used in the manufacture of helicopter lifting slings. TrueKote CS 252 contains solvent and is classified as a flammable material for shipping purposes, see technical data bulletin for more information.

The TrueKote product series may also be used as a protective coating for soft foam, floor coatings, flexible bumper, and impact resistance pads for playgrounds, horse farms and polymer rope applications.

Fiber Consolidating Colored Rope Coating

color coat rope, fabric and netting with FiberLock 100FiberLock 100 is a low build vinyl based dip coating used to color coat rope, fabric and netting. It provides color and consolidates fibers improving slip. FiberLock 100 penetrates deep within fibers and air dries. We offer a selection of 18 colors; customers may order this product clear and add colors as needed or pre-colored.

This series offers a desirable balance of chemical resistance, film, and thermo-plasticity. Outstanding as a marine maintenance coating, rope coating, buoy coating; offering superior protection to abrasion and weather conditions. Works on a variety of rope products and nettings any substrate where protection and retention and enhancement of physical properties are desired.

In low temperatures, it retains good flexibility and ages well in heat and humidity. FiberLock will Increase the life and wear resistance of synthetic rope and nylon nettings. This product is available in a variety of colors. Apply using the dip and dry method. Hardness 65-75 Shore A.
