Today, Irathane polyurethane elastomeric coating are extending the wear life of vital plant an equipment everywhere. Designed for on site application, they operate with unequalled reliability in the most severe abrasive and corrosive environments, such as mineral processing and nuclear, coal-fired or hydroelectric power generation.

Irathane Irathane has dominated the field of polyurethane elastomeric systems for more than 25 years - producing coating which are considerably tougher and longer lasting than the surface material they protect.


A reputation for quality

Irathane's range of easily applied primer, adhesive and topcoat systems provide outstanding, long-term protection to most substances including Steel, Aluminium, Fibreglass, Epoxy, Wood, Plastics, Rubbers and Concrete.

As a result, no other protective coatings company enjoys such a reputation for quality performance.



Two main system

The Irathane range offers several routes to ensure the desired performance. By combining the right resin "backbone" with the right size and type of glass flake - or other filler - Irathane can provide the optimum coating. This is achieved by selecting from either the 800 range or the 900 range. In any event, factors to be taken into consideration include: chemical resistance, temperature resistance, stress areas, life expectancy, cost and logistics.
By controlling the formulation and product characteristics, coatings can be manufactured with minimal residual stress, a coefficient of expansion similar to metal and excellent adhersion to metal concrete.
