Ucrete industrial flooring is a range of robust floor finishes produced using the unique Ucrete heavy duty polyurethane resin binder system. Correctly specified, Ucrete flooring will give many years of service even in very aggressive industrial and process environments. All grades of Ucrete have essentially the same chemical resistance characteristics as shown in the chemical resistance tables. Apart from very aggressive environments such as drains, bunds and sumps in the chemical industry for example, the nature of the chemicals to be encountered has no bearing on the choice of which Ucrete flooring grade is to be used.
The first requirement to be assessed when selecting your Ucrete flooring is the in-service temperature requirements. This determines the thickness of the floor required which may limit the number of appropriate finishes. In areas where heavy mechanical impact is expected to impinge upon the floor, then thicker systems should be preferred. The choice of floor finish is then one of aesthetics and surface profile. The most appropriate surface texture for any particular application will depend upon the nature of any spillage to be encountered, the type of work undertaken in the area and the standards of housekeeping and cleaning to be maintained. Your local BASF Construction Chemicals office will be pleased to advise you.
The choice of smooth or textured floors in process areas is not always clear-cut. For example the two statements:
If spillage is too frequent, it may be impractical to clean them up immediately, so a smooth floor would be slippery. If the spillage is noxious, it may be a requirement that it is removed so it is always dealt with immediately and the question of slip hazard does not arise.
Ucrete industrial flooring offers a range of surface textures, from smooth to highly textured slip resistant floors and surface appearance including monocoloured, terrazzo and coloured quartz finishes at thicknesses from 4 to 12 mm allowing you to tailor the floor to meet your specific project needs and so achieve the most cost effective flooring solution.
