High hiding with one coat application

Color stable aliphatic polyurea-ester-urethane backbone

High tensile strength, high abrasion resistance


UREA-TUFF 4290 is a high solids content, two-component, liquid applied, aliphatic industrial maintenance coating based on new polyurea technology. It can be used as a high solids top coat for many of the polyurea and polyurethane deck coating systems supplied by TUFFLEX Polymers (TUFFLEX). UREA-TUFF 4290 displays a lower level of irritating odors and is formulated with environmentally friendly Oxol-100, resulting in a minty smell.


Basic Uses: UREA-TUFF 4290 is an abrasion-resistant and weather resistant Top Coat designed for use in TUFFLEX Traffic Bearing and Roof Coating Systems where there is a requirement for a low VOC and fast curing top coat. Please refer to the pertinent Application Specification Data Sheet for system application details.


UREA-TUFF 4290 is used where optimum weather resistance, abrasion resistance and color stability are required. It is typically used in conjunction with the UREA-TUFF 4260 & 4270 series Polyurea membranes. The cured UREA-TUFF 4290 top coat easily withstands the extreme environmental conditions encountered in exterior construction environments. When used in conjunction with elastomeric base membranes, the UREA-TUFF 4290 composite systems are designed to handle the substrate expansion and contraction which is typical during low temperature to high temperature thermal cycling. UREA-TUFF 4290 may also be used alone as an abrasion-resisting maintenance coating.


Surface Preparation: All surfaces to be coated with UREA-TUFF 4290 must be thoroughly dry and free of all contaminants, including oxidation on old top coats or base coats as well as construction debris or deposits.


Application: Always stir the pigmented Part A thoroughly prior to use. UREA-TUFF 4290 is normally applied at a rate of 100-133 square feet per gallon, per coat, resulting in a wet film thickness of 12 to 16 wet mils.


Coverage will vary depending on the texture, aggregate size or degree of surface porosity. The larger the aggregate used, the lower will be the coverage due to the larger surface area of the aggregate. UREA-TUFF 4290 is easily applied by squeegee, roller, or notched trowel. Always follow by backrolling. At 50% relative humidity and 77°F, the coating will reach an initial set within 2 hours. Light traffic should not be allowed on the finished coating for 3-4 hours.



This product contains aliphatic isocyanates, low viscosity amine chain extenders and petroleum hydrocarbon solvents. Read the container-precautionary labels and Safety Data Sheet (SDS) carefully. Exposure to urethanes and petroleum solvents may cause allergic skin and respiratory reaction. Personnel applying coatings containing petroleum solvents and isocyanate prepolymers should wear protective clothing, goggles and gloves and should use only with adequate ventilation and respiratory protective gear. Avoid contact of material with skin or eyes and avoid breathing vapors. Mix and apply only in well-ventilated areas. Read the appropriate SDS prior to handling the epoxy primers or the UREA-TUFF 4290 coating components. THIS PRODUCT IS FOR PROFESSIONAL USE ONLY.
