GatorHyde Spray-On Protective Coatings!

Industry Leader in “FAST SET” Spray Applied Polyurea & Polyurethanes 

GatorHyde RAPID CURING Protective Coatings was originally founded over 10 years ago by a company in Oklahoma with over 25 years’ experience in developing polyurea and polyurethane technologies. In December 2010, GatorHyde was acquired by CHEMLINE, INC., a manufacturer of elastomeric coatings in Saint Louis, Missouri. Today, the entire family of GatorHyde high pressure, spray-on coatings is produced from CHEMLINE’S 140,000 square foot, Saint Louis, blending facility.

Since the acquisition of GatorHyde, CHEMLINE has been aggressive in supporting the continued growth of the product line and name branding. The integration of GatorHyde products with CHEMLINE’S extensive portfolio of polyurethane, pure and modified polyurea coatings has made the company one of the largest privately held formulators and manufacturers of RAPID CURING spray-on coatings in the world market.

GatorHyde Coatings CollageThe coming years will see steady growth in GatorHyde spray-on technology and as new raw materials emerge from the major producers, CHEMLINE’S R & D Team will take advantage of these materials and a whole NEW GENERATION of GatorHyde, spray applied, protective coatings will be developed. The R&D Team, which consists of over 9 licensed Chemists, will continue to set the High Standard for Quality, Product Innovation, Unique Nitch Market Applications, and above all, Long Term Protection.

GatorHyde Coatings CollageAll GatorHyde spray applied coatings are two component systems that are 100% Solids and contain no (VOC’s) Volatile Organic Compounds. The entire family of GatorHyde products is sprayed through heated, high pressure, plural component pump systems such as manufactured by GRACO, Inc. The products are thoroughly mixed at the very tip of an impingement gun just before the coating impacts the target surface. When sprayed-on the designated substrate, these coatings become tack free in as little as 6 seconds and reach 80% of their cure within a few hours not days.

GatorHyde FAST SET spray-on coatings are resistant to most solvents, many different acids which make them ideal for Industrial, Commercial and Manufacturing Industries.

GatorHyde still has financially rewarding dealership programs available, Nationwide. What separates CHEMLINE/GatorHyde from many other companies producing Spray-On Bed liners is that our Certified Installer programs are NOT A FRANCHISE!
