Ucrete UD200 – hygienic floors for rapid installation
How does Ucrete UD200 work?
Unique Heavy Duty Polyurethane resin technology with exceptional resistance to aggressive chemicals, high temperatures and heavy traffic – this is Ucrete UD200. Ucrete UD200 has a lightly textured surface providing a safe and attractive floor in water wet environments and can be put back into service after 5 hours at 10oC.
Careful choice of raw materials and the use of a limited number of specialist applicators ensure optimum installation and a long service life.
What makes Ucrete UD200 a unique solution?
Ucrete UD200 flooring's combination of durability, speed of cure and ease of cleaning with temperature resistance up to 150 oC are a unique offering meeting the demands of the food and beverage industry.
Ucrete UD200 meets customer demands in various industry sectors where robust hygienic floors are required
Ucrete UD200 floors are dense and impervious providing an ideal floor finish for all wet process applications in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical industries and wherever a robust hygienic floor is required.
Ucrete UD200 floors are tolerant of substrate moisture and rapid curing facilitating the maintenance of tight constructions schedules and reducing down time in refurbishment applications.
The combination of temperature, chemical, impact and wear resistance ensures that a correctly specified Ucrete floor will last for many years. When one considers the risk to hygiene and safety of failing floors together with the cost in management time and lost production to replace them, it is clear that Ucrete floors give best value for money because they are long lived floors.
Ucrete floors have been widely used throughout the food industry for over 40 years, with many older floors still in service, and are accredited for use in facilities operating HACCP based food safety systems. They are non-solvented and have been awarded the Eurofins Gold Seal for indoor air quality, they do not taint food stuffs even during application and do not support biological growth.
Ucrete sets the benchmark for food industry flooring with this combination of long term performance and independent certifications.
For rapid installation of high temperature resistant floors for water wet environments, Ucrete UD200 has no equal.
Technical Data Sheet
The Ucrete UD200 surface profiles have coefficient of friction as determined to EN 13036 Part 4 with 4S rubber on the wet floor as follows: Ucrete UD200 40 – 45
The Ucrete UD200 surface profiles conform to DIN51130 as follows:
Ucrete UD200 R11 V
Optimum slip resistance can only be maintained with regular cleaning.
The Ucrete UD200 resins do not start to soften until temperatures above 130°C are exceeded. Specifications are available that are fully serviceable up to 130°C and resistant to occasional spillage up
Correctly installed, Ucrete UD200 can withstand regular and routine discharges of boiling water, hot oils and fats:
- 6mm Ucrete UD200 floors are fully serviceable from -25°C to +80°C
- 9mm Ucrete UD200 floors are fully serviceable from -40°C to +120°C
- 12mm Ucrete UD200 floors are fully serviceable from -40°C to +130°C
Non - Tainting:
Ucrete UD200 is solvent free and non tainting from the end of mixing, as tested by the Campden Technology Ltd.
With high mechanical strengths and a low elastic modulus, Ucrete UD200 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 UD200 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.
Ucrete UD200 exhibits zero absorption when tested to CP.BM2/67/2.
