Heavy Duty Polyurethane Floor Finish Ucrete MF is a unique HD Polyurethane resin floor with exceptional resistance to aggressive chemicals. It provides a smooth protective floor finish suitable for applications in predominantly dry environments. It is dense and impervious, providing the ideal floor finish for applications in the food, pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries including clean room, laboratory, packing hall and warehouse applications and wherever a robust, long lived floor is required. Ucrete Industrial Flooring has been widely used throughout the industry for more than 40 years; many of the older floors are still in service.

Ucrete has been awarded the Indoor Air Comfort Gold Label following extensive VOC emission chamber testing and auditing of quality management and production control procedures.
This demonstrates that Ucrete is an extremely clean product without any volatile compounds that might taint foodstuff or affect the well-being of personnel.
All Ucrete grades give very low emissions and conform to all the emissions requirements for indoor flooring systems in Europe including AgBB in Germany, Afsset in France, where they are rated A+ for VOC emissions (the cleanest rating), and M1 in Finland.
Ucrete MF is available in eight standard colours: Blue, Cream, Green, Green/Brown, Grey, Orange, Red and Yellow Ucrete floor systems have been formulated to provide the very highest chemical and heat resistance. As a direct result, some yellowing of the installed floor will occur in areas of direct UV exposure. This is most apparent in lighter colours.
A Ucrete MF floor is fully resistant to liquid spillage and discharge up to 70°C. Suitable for freezer temperatures down to -15°C.
Ucrete MF is solvent free and non-tainting from the end of mixing, as tested by the Campden Technology Ltd.
Ucrete MF offers exceptional resistance to a wide range of chemical aggressors. For example, Ucrete is resistant to spillages of the following commonly encountered classes of chemicals: Most dilute and concentrated organic acids such as, Acetic Acid, Lactic Acid, Oleic Acid and Citric Acid as commonly found in the food industry. Dilute and concentrated acids: hydrochloric, nitric, phosphoric and sulphuric. Dilute and concentrated alkalis, including sodium hydroxide to 50% concentration Animal fats and vegetable oils, sugars flavourings and essences. Mineral oils, kerosene, gasoline and brake fluids. A wide range of organic solvents including Methanol, Xylene, Ethers and Chlorinated solvents.
With high mechanical strengths and a low elastic modulus, Ucrete MF is very resilient and able to withstand severe impact loads. While no material is indestructible and surface chipping may occur, brittle modes of failure resulting in cracking and disbondment are unknown with Ucrete floors.
SUBSTRATE MOISTURE TOLERANCE
Ucrete Industrial Flooring is extremely tolerant to residual substrate moisture and can be installed directly onto 7 day old concrete, or onto old good quality concretes with high moisture contents without the use of special primers, provided there is a functioning DPM within the structure. This enables rapid construction programmes to be maintained and facilitates refurbishment work in wet process areas. Epoxy surface DPMs should not be used as they soften under high temperature conditions and will lead to floor failure.
Ucrete MF exhibits zero absorption when tested to CP.BM2/67/2.
The Ucrete MF floors have coefficient of friction as determined to EN13036 Part 4 with 4S rubber on the wet floor as follows:
Ucrete MF: 35
The Ucrete MF surface profiles conform to
DIN51130 as follows: Ucrete MF R10 V -
Optimum slip resistance can only be maintained with regular cleaning.
