Safety Awareness for Handling Polyurea and Polyurea-hybrid Materials

The polyurea coatings’ industry is being pressed for safety today more than ever. There is clearly an increasing trend toward “green” [environmentally-friendly] products for the marketplace. While this may be more visible, perhaps, in homeowner-type products and services, it is also becoming more and more of a factor in the commercial/industrial side of business as well.

(PRWEB) February 20, 2022 -- Greater attention is being given to low- and zero-VOC coatings. The “powers that be” are pushing to lower and eliminate the use of solvents. This lends itself nicely to the use of polyurea and the excellent performance characteristics they provide. However, while it is true that once reacted many polyureas have no out-gassing whatsoever, it is important that safety guidelines are still followed before, during, and after the application process.

Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)
It is important that the applicator be familiar with the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). The MSDS will usually contain these or similar topic sections: Product Description and/or Ingredients; Emergency Overview (including health and physical hazards); First Aid; Fire-Fighting; Spills and Decontamination; Handling and Storage of Materials; Personal Protection (described in more detail below); Ecology; Toxicology; Disposal; Transportation; and Regulatory information.

An applicator does not need to have a degree in chemistry, but he or she does need to have a degree of understanding and common sense about the materials being used. The applicator should know what is being applied and know the risks of handling those materials. The applicator is dealing with unreacted chemistry and, as such, must take certain precautions during transportation, unloading, preparation, and application of those materials.

What is Polyurea or Polyurea-Hybrid?
Polyureas are a combination of an isocyanate on the “A” side and an amine on the “B” side. A polyurea-hybrid is a combination of an isocyanate on the “A” side with a polyol on the “B” side. It should be noted that not all coating systems are created equal. The raw materials for the “A” side formulation typically contain about 1% residual free monomer, which could be HDI, IPDI (both UV stable), MDI, or TDI. However, polyurea systems manufacturers introduce additional monomer to the system to try to achieve certain properties. While this can save money and perhaps make the formulation task easier, it does increase the potential risk to the user. It is reported that some formulators today are using anywhere from 0% to as much as 20% or more monomer.

Hazards of Monomer
The concern with monomers is that they are smaller molecules than prepolymers. As such, they pose a greater potential danger to the user. While usage of proper safety equipment will protect the user, there is always the risk of improperly fitted masks, malfunctioning filters, carelessness/negligence on the part of the applicator, or some other unknown factor. While no one particular formula or concentration of monomer is currently recommended by any association, sheer logic would support that a higher concentration of monomer increases the potential threat for health and/or environmental hazard. As an applicator it is advisable to be aware of what you are using and take appropriate precautions to emphasize proper safety guidelines for applicator crews and people handling the materials.

Although it is also important, for the purpose of this article I will not discuss proper handling of solvents that may be used for cleanup or other use. Below are some possible reactions to exposure to unreacted polyurea materials. For the sake of simplicity, I have loosely combined the exposure reactions of both the “A” and “B” sides. The vast majority of symptoms are identical or very similar.

Exposure Symptoms
Eye: Irritation, burning, or chemical burns.

Skin: Toxins can be absorbed through the skin. Irritation, redness, or a burning sensation can result. A person can become sensitized to the materials after exposure. This can lead to an exaggerated response to even minimal concentrations of monomer. Therefore, sensitized persons should not be exposed to ANY level of unreacted monomer.

Respiratory: Irritation causing nasal discharge, coughing, discomfort in nose, throat, and chest. Severe exposure may result in difficulty breathing, risk of serious damage to the respiratory system, headache, nausea, vomiting, and drowsiness.

Safety Precautions
While it is likely that applicators are already well aware and properly trained in the area of Personal Protection, let’s do a quick overview of some current equipment used:

Eye Protection: Some type of chemical safety goggles or a half- or full-face shield. If any chance of splashing, a full-face shield is recommended. If you wear glasses, remember that prescription safety glasses will not be sufficient. Be sure to use equipment designed for use with glasses.

Skin Protection: Wear gloves to protect the hands; Neoprene, butyl rubber, or nitrile rubber gloves are preferred. Thin latex gloves may not be the best choice for repeated or long-term use. To protect the rest of the body, some type of protective clothing would be appropriate. This could include some type of full body zip up suit with or without an air hose depending on conditions. You may want to choose equipment according to your polyurea system supplier’s recommendations.

Know What You're Using
When deciding on a polyurea coating system, you may want to ask the system supplier the following questions to maintain safety.

What is the residual free monomer content in your system? (The lower the safer; this number will not likely exceed 1%.)

How much, if any, isocyanate monomer do you use in formulating the isocyanate side of the system?

We cannot, as an industry, afford to have injuries occur because of ignorance about the polyurea technology. This type of accident is costly on two levels: First, an injured worker takes money from the business via medical costs as well as lost work production time; Secondly, reports of injuries associated with any particular coating affects the public perception of the entire industry, from formulator to applicator. This takes money out of future orders.

What Can the Industry do to Promote Safety?
Clear, easily recognizable labeling of materials makes a lot of sense. It will not help anyone to ignore the real hazards of the chemistry by not being straightforward about what is being handled, transported, and used. Perhaps the time has come for a designation or rating system so that anyone in potential contact with unreacted polyurea materials can easily identify the level of potential health hazards associated with using a particular polyurea coating system. If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to forward them to the PDA and/or the author.

In summary, this article was designed to focus mainly on safe use of polyurea components. I would like to again remind any and all applicators in the polyurea community to be aware of what they are doing and what they are using. Protect yourself and others around you. Armed with this information and the proper training and equipment, the applicator should be well prepared to provide a high quality and safe coating for the customer, continued safe work and income for the applicator teams, increased jobs and profits for the application companies, and increased orders and profits for the manufacturers of the coating systems.

ContractorSupplyBid.com Takes the Digging Out of Green and Construction Industry Sales Processes

As demand and costs for construction and related materials continues to increase; many contractors and suppliers are finding it more and more difficult to connect. Using our new “Conexx System” on (www.contractorsupplybid.com) contractors materials requests are automatically distributed to building materials, landscape, masonry and related suppliers instantly. With a staff is comprised of construction and technology professionals the system has been designed to allow ease of use by those that are or are not technology savvy.

Braintree, MA (PRWEB) February 16, 2022 -- Landscape and construction materials pricing can vary widely. This is primarily due to transportation costs, product deficiencies, overstocked and discontinuations. In recent months and years some construction materials have been out of stock for months at a time. The inconvenience this places on the contractor when either looking to purchase specified materials or complete a project is overwhelming. Having an estimating department is all but a dream for many contractors and for those that do it becomes costly to utilize their talents searching for or just ensuring the best pricing for materials.

Using our system allows a contractor to instantly source materials from a wide variety of vendors locally and nationally. Using our online platform RFQ’s can be placed anytime day or night. Once the request is entered it is sorted and distributed to all possible suppliers for pricing.

For suppliers looking to expand their business and reach a targeted audience the options are few online. The construction marketplace online has been dominated by a slew of free link sites. As with many other advertising options it is all too easy to become lost. Our system works within the suppliers capabilities. New suppliers are asked to provide a product listings and what states or regions they are looking to service. They are also given an opportunity to receive all requests in a category, allowing the opportunity to provide pricing on alternate products, a fairly common practice within the industry. When a request is generated from a contractor for a product they carry in a region they supply, they are automatically notified by email.

“It is crucial that we develop a platform that is easy to navigate and utilize for all parties involved, the response has been an overwhelming yes so far. We spoke with a wide variety of contractors and suppliers in order to incorporate what they felt were needed. We are making looking at new ideas daily to incorporate new ideas.” said Bill Mendon Operations Support Manager.

The business landscape has changed forever, we are positioned to accommodate the sales and procurement needs of the green and construction industries. Our staff has worked hard through the development and implementation of the site. The experience of building a system like this from the ground up allows each staff member the opportunity to interact more efficiently with our clients and their needs and adapt the system to them when needed.

Lincoln Still Inspires 25,000 Americans to Build a Log Home of their Own Each Year

The log home industry owes a debt of gratitude to Abraham Lincoln's birthplace — a rough-hewn log cabin — and the pioneering spirit it symbolizes. Today over 55 members of the National Association of Homebuilders manufacture what are now called log homes rather than cabins. Most are full time, year-round residences. American baby boomers are a growing market for large luxurious log homes.

(PRWEB) February 10, 2022 -- Abraham Lincoln was born in a hand-hewn, one-room log cabin in Hodgenville, Kentucky on February 12, 1809. Nearly two-centuries later, Lincoln's birthplace still symbolizes America’s pioneering spirit, inspiring the sale of 25,000 log homes annually.

Most log homes are now sold as kits or packages by some 55 manufacturers who are members of the Log Homes Council of the National Association of Homebuilders (www.loghomes.org). There are countless small manufacturers as well.

Rich Horn, Log Homes Council president and an executive with Northeastern Log Homes in Kenduskeag, Maine, points out, "Today’s log homes are engineered to meet the building, energy and safety standards that apply to all modern US housing. Computer-controlled milling machines shape the logs with tongue and groove joints for a precise fit. Steel fasteners, foam gaskets, and caulking between the logs protects against air and water infiltration. High quality, energy-efficient, double-glazed windows and doors are typically used. Most log homes are professionally built."

University of Maine at Orono, studies show that modern log homes require less energy for heating and air conditioning.

Package prices depend largely on square footage and whether the kit includes components such as windows, doors, roofing, interior walls and stairs. Northeastern Log Homes (www.northeasternlog.com), for example, includes all these components as well as pre-cut and numbered logs. Prices range from about $25,000 for a starter home to $100,000 or more for a custom, luxury model. Total move in cost, not counting land and site preparation, is about two-and-a-half to three-times the price of a complete materials package.

"The market for larger models tends to be baby boomers who are building vacation homes that will become their full-time residence when they retire," says Horn, whose company has exported log homes to Japan.

Go Back to the Stone Age. Taylor Lumber Offers Tips on How to Build a Stone Wall Like a Pro

Add beauty and functionality to your yard and garden – build a stone wall. Although they are functional and durable, building a stone wall involves hard work. Luckily the folks at Taylor Lumber have offered some tips to help you build a stone wall like a professional.

Marshfield, MA (PRWEB) February 4, 2022 -- Add beauty and functionality to your yard and garden – build a stone wall. Not only is stone the oldest building material ever used, but the aesthetic use of stone can even raise the value of your property. Although they are functional and durable, building a stone wall involves hard work.

Luckily the folks at Taylor Lumber have offered some tips to help you build a stone wall like a professional. Marshfield based Taylor Lumber/ACE Hardware is a full-service hardware store and lumberyard located at 2075 Ocean Street (Route 139) in Marshfield, Mass.

- If this is your first stone wall, it is suggested that you limit the height to three feet.
- For walls less than three feet high, a six inch trench will suffice. However, for walls higher than three feet, you will need a footer trench dug to a depth below the frost line.
- Build your wall so it consists of several layers, arranged together like a puzzle.
- Stones can be trimmed to the proper shape and size by using a stone mason’s hammer. A stone chisel and sledge hammer can be used to split stones.
- Place smaller rocks in between to act as fillers.
- The width of the wall at the base should be two-thirds of the height of the wall.
- Place bonding stones, the long flat stones, at either end of the trench and then again at regular four foot intervals along the length of the wall.
- Place each stone so that it rests on a flat, strong bed and overlaps two or more stones below. Since the wall is held together by gravity and friction, it is important that each stone is set properly.
- Using gravity to your advantage, the front of the wall and either end should be sloped slightly toward the center of the wall (approx. 1 inch per foot of height).
- Outline the wall using stakes and a string to use as a guideline.
- Mortar the flattest stones for the top layer of the wall.

When done properly, a stone wall can last a lifetime.

Sustainable Hardwood Alternative Gives Building Designers Greater Choice

Aware of the sensitivities of using hardwoods, building components fabricator Octaveward have introduced Envirowood. Made from up to 70 percent recycled styrene and totally maintenance free, the material gives low lifetime cost of ownership and the assurance that after many years service it remains 100 percent recyclable. Envirowood has the surface finish and feel of real wood but without the drawbacks. Realistic simulated oak, ash, cedar, mahogany and other finishes can be specified to harmonise with any construction project.

(PRWEB) January 29, 2022 -- Aware of the sensitivities of using hardwoods, building components fabricator Octaveward have introduced Envirowood. Made from up to 70 percent recycled styrene and totally maintenance free, the material gives low lifetime cost of ownership and the assurance that after many years service it remains 100 percent recyclable. Envirowood has the surface finish and feel of real wood but without the drawbacks. Realistic simulated oak, ash, cedar, mahogany and other finishes can be specified to harmonise with any construction project.

Architects and designers can use Envirowood for a variety of building and garden applications, from doors, frames, architraves and cladding to garden furniture, planters and fencing. The material is UV stable and will not rot, warp, delaminate or harbour woodworm or other pests. The weight and density is very similar to natural wood. Extruded sections are impact resistant and can be sawn and drilled to take mechanical fixings in exactly the same way as wood. Envirowood can also be welded.

While the initial cost of a fabrication in Envirowood is 10 to 20 percent higher than the equivalent of finished hardwood, thereafter maintenance is not required so through life cost savings are made. Samples have withstood immersion in water for more than 30 years without deterioration, so the material will have a long working life.

Designers can select from a range of natural wood colours and finishes and there are many different profiles available. Octaveward provide a complete fabrication and installation service to enable site work to proceed quickly.
