Irathane Futura was founded in 2003 following the amalgamation of two global companies, Futura Coatings and Irathane. Both companies were market leaders in the manufacture and supply of polyurethane and polyurea systems into a variety of industrial markets. Combined, Irathane Futura’s coating systems are used worldwide to solve severe problems in areas such as power generation, mining, water and petrochemical industries.

In the early 90’s, Futura Coatings identified an opportunity to adapt and produce coating systems specifically designed for speciality fabrications that required high performance and reliability. Today, Irathane Futura offers a choice of state-of-the-art sprayable coatings and structural urethanes that have been extensively used in large theming and architectural projects. Irathane Futura coatings have been used worldwide in theme parks, shopping malls, restaurants, casinos, hotels, water parks and movie sets to re-create realistic features which will last a lifetime.
Irathane Futura produces numerous speciality systems, from flexible elastomers to hard coatings and plastics to suit the customer’s application and prides itself on the high level of customer care and attention provided. Throughout every stage of a project, from initial R&D to product specification and selection, training and technical services, Irathane Futura works in partnership with customers to ensure each project is a complete success.

As part of the overall commitment to customer satisfaction, Irathane Futura supplies and recommends a full range of accessory materials such as finishes, adhesives and patching materials.
