Ucrete MT – A 4 - 6 mm heavy duty polyurethane floor finish
How does Ucrete MT work?
Ucrete MT provides a lightly textured protective floor finish suitable for applications in wet and dry process environments.
What are the unique features of Ucrete MT?
Ucrete MT can be installed rapidly: specifications are available that enable Ucrete MT and primer to be installed and cured within a 12 hour application window. Being non-tainting also, this makes it ideally suited for rapid refurbishment in the food industry.
Ucrete MT is very resistant to high temperatures, being is fully serviceable at temperatures of 70°C when installed at a thickness of 4mm, and of 80°C with a thickness of 6mm.
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.
Among other properties, Ucrete MT also offers exceptional resistance to a wide range of chemical aggressors.
What is Ucrete MT recommended for?
Ucrete MT is dense and impervious, providing the ideal floor finish for applications in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical industries and wherever a robust, long lived floor is required.
Technical Data Sheet
The Ucrete MT surface has a coefficient of friction as determined to EN13036 Part 4 with 4S rubber on the wet floor as follows:
Ucrete MT 40 - 45
Optimum slip resistance can only be maintained with regular cleaning.
4mm Ucrete MT floors are fully serviceable from -15°C to 70°C.
6mm Ucrete MT floors are fully serviceable from -25°C to to 80°C.
Non - Tainting:
Ucrete MT systems are solvent free and non-tainting
from the end of mixing, as tested by Campden
With high mechanical strengths and a low elastic modulus, Ucrete MT 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.
Ucrete MT offers exceptional resistance to a wide range of chemical aggressors. For example Ucrete is resistant to the following commonly encountered chemicals:
- Acetic Acid, 50%: As spirit vinegar widely used in the food industry, indicative of resistance to vinegar, sauces, etc.
- Concentrated Lactic Acid @ 60°C: Indicative of resistance to milk and dairy products.
- Oleic Acid, 100% @ 60°C: Representative of the organic acids formed by oxidation of vegetable and animal fats widely encountered in the food industry.
- Concentrated Citric Acid: As found in citrus fruits and representative of the wider range of fruit acids which can rapidly degrade other resin floors.
- Methanol, 100%: Representative of alcohols and the wider range of solvents used in the pharmaceutical industry.
Ucrete MT is also resistant to a wide range of mineral oils, salts and inorganic acids, extensive chemical resistance tables are available upon request.
Ucrete MT exhibits zero absorption when tested to CP.BM2/67/2.
Cleaning and Hygiene
Ucrete flooring systems are accredited for use in facilities operating HACCP based food safety systems.
