Ucrete DP – Slip resistant and chemical resistant industrial floor
How does Ucrete DP work?
Unique Heavy Duty Polyurethane resin technology with exceptional resistance to aggressive chemicals, heavy impact and extreme temperatures – this is Ucrete DP. Ucrete DP is a family of products that can be applied in a range of thicknesses and surface profiles to ensure the correct level of slip, temperature and chemical resistance.
What makes Ucrete DP a unique solution?
The adjustable surface profile can be altered to match the slip resistance with the hazard without compromising the chemical and impact resistance nor the cleanability of the floor. Ucrete is seen as the benchmark for wet process area floors and in this area Ucrete DP has no equal.
Specifically designed to meet European slip resistance standards accepted worldwide as the benchmark for process safety in wet and slippery environments.
Ucrete DP meets customer demands in various industry sectors where robust long lived floors are required
Ucrete DP is dense and impervious providing an ideal floor finish for applications in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical industries and wherever a robust long lived floor is required.
For example meat and poultry processing create not only severe environment with fats and aggressive fluids but are also hazardous with the chance of slipping always present.
Using Ucrete DP you can reduce the slipping risk as well as have a floor that will resist the attack from blood and fats. Ideal for all wet food processing areas.
As all Ucrete products, Ucrete DP has been accredited for use in facilities covered by HACCP accreditation.
Technical Data Sheet
The Ucrete DP surface profiles have coefficient of friction as determined to EN13038 Part 4 using the 4S rubber on the wet floor as follows:
Ucrete DP10 45 - 50
Ucrete DP20 45 - 55
Ucrete DP30 50 - 60
The Ucrete DP surface profiles conform to DIN51130 as follows:
Ucrete DP10 R11
Ucrete DP20 R12 or R13 V4*
Ucrete DP30 R13 V8
*Depending upon specification
The extremely robust aggregates used to provide the texture of Ucrete DP20 and Ucrete DP30 are designed to maintain optimum slip resistance for many years. Where there is heavy hard wheeled
traffic it is recommended that Ucrete DP30 is used.
Correctly installed Ucrete DP at 9mm thickness can withstand regular and routine discharges of boiling water, hot oils and fats.
The Ucrete DP resins do not start to soften until temperatures above 130°C are exceeded. 9mm specifications are fully serviceable up to 120°C and suitable for freezer temperatures down to -40°C.
Non - Tainting:
Ucrete DP systems are solvent free and non-tainting from the end of mixing, as tested by Campden Technology Ltd.
With high mechanical strengths and a low elastic modulus, Ucrete DP 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 DP 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 DP exhibits zero absorption when tested to CP.BM2/67/2.
