    Anybody familiar with it? It claims 80% cured in 3-seconds.

    Is it Urethane?

    No it’s water based, one or two componant, depending on drying time you want.
    There is a Neptune co. here in NZ, but it looks pretty newly set up, all their case studies are from the USA.
    In the same league as KoldKing, any colour you want as long as it’s black.
    Probably costs $100k to buy the rig, then you are at the mercy of the supplier of the material from then on.
    I’m doing a concrete roof right now, would be ideal for something like that or KoldKing, or Polyurea, trouble is it’s only 15 squares (150m2)and it is the only concrete roof that big I have had for several years.
    I’m doing it the old school way, with bitumen rubber and chopped fibreglass matt.

    There is a BIG difference from cure and dry to the touch.

    Your average 100% solids Polyurea will dry to the touch in secounds with a cure time of 72 Hours. A big difference being after spray moisture (even in the air) will help the cure of Polyurea but take away the properties of an acrylic.

    We’ve experienced a big time failure of this product installed in the Mid Atlantic region.

    I’d be happy to discuss.

    Is it because the product is no good? or applicators are putting it on unsuitable substrates/existing surfaces.In my observations these types of products are prone to be used by the flybynighters (jacklegs) to make a quick buck.
    In many cases the product is great, just used in the wrong situations.

    Cleanliness is right up there with Godliness on the coatings. With the Conklin system we clean the roof three times before any coatings go down, and if it has been a week or so, we do it again Nothing sticks well to a dirty surface. There are no shortcuts!

    We have used this product, is expensive, but providing the product is fresh is good.

    Understand there are major issues with the supplier however. The guys in New Zealand are the distributors for NZ and Australia are very knowledgeable and are very strict on QA. They have however had major issues with supplier through their poor quality control of product ( have not used this poor quality product) delays, and lack of support.

    Have just seen the other posts and happy to discuss, as we have used this product on many projects.
