Established in 1988 in Vancouver Washington, USA, LifeLast specializes in formulating and manufacturing high performance, 100% solids polyurethane protective linings and coatings for a variety of industrial applications. Our earliest applications are still performing well today and we expect them to for many years to come.
Since 2004, LifeLast DuraShield 210 and 210-61 have been applied to over 100 miles of steel pipe for hydroelectric penstocks, water and wastewater transmission and treatment with pipe ranging in diameter from 4 inches to over 15 feet, and lengths from 20-60 feet. Check out our 20+ years of case histories.
LifeLast chose to specialize in polyurethane protective coatings based on our keen desire to build lasting, sustainable solutions and take green technology to the next level by using bio-based raw materials. With no volatile organic compounds (VOC) or solvents, LifeLast DuraShield and DuraGard polyurethanes are not only environmentally friendly, they’re people-friendly too. No more toxic fumes for those applying the coatings, whether shop or field, sprayed, brushed or troweled. Durability is part of sustainability, too. Independent tests show LifeLast polyurethane coatings are expected to stand the test of time, providing corrosion protection for 50+ years, even in the harshest environments.
We actively participate on industry standard setting boards. LifeLast President Jeff Buratto, is the Chairman of the Linings and Coatings Group for the Steel Water Pipe Manufacturer Technical Advisory Committee (SWPMTAC), a technical group that prepares steel pipe standards for the American Water Works Association (AWWA). LifeLast is a regular educational presenter for engineering groups and owners throughout North America, and is a driving force in evaluating and relating industry standards to the markets in which we serve.

“Polyurethane protective coatings and linings” North American Clean Energy Magazine
Substantial cost savings were achieved by the combination of the Steel Pipe with DuraShield coatings
“The Pima County/City of Tucson Standard Specifications require a very stringent set of properties for coatings used in the sanitary sewer system. As part of the value engineering effort, various pipe materials and coatings were reviewed. After the value engineering effort was completed, including a stringent due diligence research of other jurisdictions experience with several of the proposed combinations – the Steel Pipe/DuraShield coating combination was selected for installation. Substantial cost savings were achieved by the combination of the Steel Pipe with DuraShield coatings”
