Why is FR polyurea coating great for props?

There are many techniques we use to achieve our creative projects & props.

One of the main techniques and products we use to  create  our props, sculptures, 3d logos & large letters is waterproof + extremely durable coating application of Polyurea which is a high quality rubber material

How do we apply it?

 

Polyurea is a manually spray applied coating using a high-pressure system with our specialist coating machine.

The amount of layers applied will depend on thickness required.

Most often we coat on to sculptures, shapes and letters carved  or CNC cut from polystyrene.

Is Prep still necessary ?

Just like anything for good results prep is crucial, sanding the surface, making sure no moisture is important.

 

Advantages of polyurea application?

Speed is the major advantage of this coating, after spray application the coating is dry within seconds!

Depending on how smooth you would like the finish to be there may be some sanding prep work prior to primer  application.

Once primed and fully dry the project is ready to spray paint!

This FR coating we use  is both water & impact resistant which is perfect  for the props durability and practicality.

Especially if you are looking for your props to be long lasting  and suitable for both indoors and outdoors.

Take a look at some of our props where polyurea has been a major factor in getting it right!

1m high Top hats production!

 

We were commissioned by Hatfield estate to create 50 1m high white top hats!
The concept was specifically designed by Hatfield to get community involved & creative by painting and decorating the hats with bright colours and patterns and to bring adventure by spotting them around the estate and Hat field.
The hats are created from polyurea coating which is a waterproof / impact resistant coating.
See below some highlights of our production, all 50 hats were created in house by us in Cornwall!

We were commissioned by the Atlantic group to create 60 bespoke 3d wall  panels. The material used to create the panels is FR polyurea, this material is impact resistant, water resistant and extremely durable.

Panels measuring each at 2.70m by 810mm, each panel consisting of cubes with varying depth. We manufactured the bespoke 60 panels within an extremely tight schedule, within 3 weeks! Which makes us proud to achieve such a job at that scale within that time frame.  The panels will be used at the Lake Side restaurant and bar in Birmingham / Genting Arena, we cant wait to see these installed!
