PITTSBURGH—Why, after all these years, is Dudley Primeaux still so pumped about polyurea?

Because he knows what the technology (not a "product" and not a "material") can do, and how many applications and faces it has.

After Everything You Need to Know about Polyurea in 3 Minutes, viewers will, too. The polyurea pioneer offers a personal take on the state of the technology and its future in a video interview with Durability + Design.

Dudley Primeaux has been involved in polyurea since its early development in the 1980s.

Primeaux, of VersaFlex Inc., also provides some "musts" for contractors and building professionals along with three critical pieces of advice ("the three Cs") for working with polyurea coatings.

Primeaux has been involved in polyurea since its early development in the 1980s. He has authored dozens of technical papers about the industry and is the named inventor on several patents.

Besides serving as VersaFlex’s Director of Education and Development, he heads his own consultancy, Primeaux Associates LLC, of Elgin, TX.

A 'Top Thinker'

Primeaux's experience includes the preparation of new raw materials, formulation development, application equipment usage, field application work and failure analysis of coating / lining projects.

Durability + Designs sister publication, JPCL: Journal of Protective Coatings & Linings, named Primeaux an industry “Top Thinker” in 2012. The video was produced by Technology Publishing Company.

But what about those three Cs?

View them here.
