Polyurea is a reaction product of an isocyanate with an amine and protective coatings based on polyurea are finding extensive application in diverse fields, especially towards protection of underlying structures for any particular isocyanate, the properties of the final product can be tailored by tweaking the constituents of the amine resin blend, especially chain extenders, chain length and crosslinker. In this review, we explicate the effect of various factors viz. soft segment length, type and concentration of chain extender and crosslinker on the material properties of polyurea.
