VFI®-201 50 D Polyurea Coating

VFI®-201 50 D Polyurea Coating

VFI-201 50 D Polyurea Coating is a fast setting, two-component, 100% solids, spray-applied coating capable of high builds over prepared metal, concrete, and masonry. It is a general-purpose polyurea that has great adhesion to many surfaces with properties that allow for flexibility when spraying vertically or horizontally. VFI-201 is best used for industrial applications to create a structure over surfaces that need protection from chemicals, abrasion, and impact. Based on application needs, VFI offers different formulas with faster (VFI-202) and slower (VFI-200) setting speeds.

Features & Benefits

  • Moisture insensitive – low sensitivity when exposed to moisture due to fast-setting abilities
  • Excellent physical properties – tensile strength and elongation increase durability and longevity
  • High impact strength – 50 D hardness provides the flexibility needed to resist impact in extreme conditions
  • Withstands thermocycling – will not crack or break due to extreme temperature changes
  • Chemical & abrasion resistant – protects against chemical corrosion and resists repeated wearing to maintain original structure
  • 100% solids – no VOCs and retains 100% of its thickness after curing

Instructions for Use:  

Surface Preparation  

All surfaces should be clean, dry, and free of dirt, dust, and debris that could affect material adhesion. Use a pressure washer on hard-to-clean surfaces. A surface cleaning detergent can be used to remove areas containing grease or oil. Treat mildew, fungus, and algae spots with a concentrated chlorine solution. Ensure all loose paint, rust, and scale are removed by sandblasting or grinding. Make any needed repairs to the surface for coating longevity and to ensure it performs to the desired effect. Concrete surfaces should be aged a minimum of 28 days before application.  


Prior to application, premix the Poly (B side) until uniform. The material temperature should be brought to a minimum temperature of 65°F before use. Apply the material to the prepared surface with a plural component high-pressure spray rig. The spray equipment should be capable of spraying at 2,500 psi and temperatures between 135°F-150°F.  

Apply the coating at a minimum of 30 mil passes. When applying subsequent coats, you must stay within the 30-minute open window. For complete UV stability, we recommend following the polyurea coating application with a UV-stable topcoat. Coated surfaces can be placed into service after a minimum cure of 24 hours.  


VFI recommends cleaning application equipment with xylene or MEK. When flushing out spray lines, use VFI-8005 Pump Flush to remove all material from the hoses.  


*Always read the safety data sheet before working with chemicals 

Use chemicals only as directed and for their intended purpose. Do not dispose of chemicals down the drain. Most chemicals must be disposed of as hazardous waste.   

PPE to avoid all unnecessary exposure:  

  • Eye protection – wear approved, fitted dust or splashproof chemical safety goggles and face protection such as a face shield 
  • Hand protection – wear chemically resistant protective gloves (nitrile, butyl, or neoprene) 
  • Skin and body protection – wear suitable protective clothing 
  • Respiratory protection – in case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. Respirator selection must be based on known or anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product, and the safe working limits of the selected respirator 

Product Limitations  

VFI-201 contains isocyanate, which is irritating to the skin and toxic if inhaled as particulate matter. Avoid prolonged breathing of vapors and repeated skin contact. Use only in a well-ventilated area.  

  • Incompatible materials – A side: strong bases, acids, alcohols, amines, and water. B side: strong oxidizers and acids  
  • Conditions to avoid – heat and incompatible materials  
  • Chemical stability – stable under normal storage conditions  
  • Reactivity & hazardous reactions – no dangerous reactions known under normal use  
  • Hazardous decomposition products – may include, and are not limited to, oxides of carbon and oxides of nitrogen, plus isocyanates for the A side 

Potential Health Hazards 

  • May cause stomach distress, nausea, or vomiting if swallowed. B side is toxic and may cause burns.  
  • May cause respiratory tract irritation, allergy and asthma symptoms, or breathing difficulties. B side may cause burns. 
  • Causes skin irritation and sensitization: redness, edema, drying, defatting, and cracking of the skin. The B side material is toxic in contact with the skin and can cause severe burns, redness, pain, and blisters. Repeated exposure to this material can result in absorption through the skin, causing a significant health hazard.  
  • Causes serious eye irritation or damage: discomfort, pain, excess blinking and tear production, marked redness, and swelling of the conjunctiva. B side may cause burns.  

*If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, seek medical advice or attention. Call a poison control center or doctor if swallowed, ingested, or when skin contact occurs.
