The definition of polyurea is “polymeric elastomers whose repeat unit is a substituted urea.” In short, it is a plural component polymer which can be sprayed on a surface to be used as a coating. It has various types of uses, from truck bedliners to spray foam insulation to a secondary containment system.

To sum the process up, the chemicals will need to combine in order to create the coating. You will then spray in an even coat over the surface.
