UCRETE® Flooring Systems

What is UCRETE®?

Developed more than 30 years ago in Europe as the answer to the most demanding industrial environments, UCRETE® technology is the original polyurethane flooring solution that provides a powerful layer of protection for both new and existing concrete surfaces. UCRETE® stands out from the rest with a higher resin content that needs no additional sealer coat, which can wear away in time, leaving a floor porous and unprotected.

Engineered as a superior alternative to acid brick, quarry tile and coatings, UCRETE® offers unequalled resistance to physical abuse, moisture, a wide range of aggressive chemicals and bacterial growth, outperforming traditional epoxy flooring surfaces in both impact resistance from heavy traffic and ability to withstand thermal shock. The technology and the application technique have been perfected with years of experience.

Our UCRETE® Product Selector Guide can help you find the ideal product for your facility.

UCRETE® HF

UCRETE® HF is a three-part concrete coating treatment and flooring system that is free of solvents, withstands extreme temperature fluctuations and is resistant to abrasion and impact. Specify it for:

  • Medium to heavy duty application thickness of (6mm – 10mm) 1/4″ to 3/8″
  • Areas subject to mechanical cleaning
  • Environments under constant chemical attack
  • Service temperatures of -45ºC to 112ºC (-50ºF to 235ºF)
  • Areas requiring slip resistance even when wet
  • Areas where cleanliness and hygiene needs to meet ADA recommendations
  • Interior or exterior industrial environments
  • Limited downtime required; can be applied to 7- to10-day-old concrete
  • Areas where no priming of sealing of substrate is required

Ideal for coolers, freezers, waste-water treatment plants, chemical production and processing facilities, paper and pulp mills, restaurant kitchens, pharmaceutical facilities, dairy, poultry, meat and food warehouses and plants, construction projects or flooring in need of repair.

UCRETE® HP and HP/Q

UCRETE® HP -a solid color flooring system- and HP/Q -a quartz multi-color decorative flooring system- are broadcast aggregate used to add texture to the flooring surface with an easy two-step application. Durable, slip-resistant, free of solvents, both are able to withstand fluctuating temperatures and can be applied to 7- to10-day-old concrete, limiting downtime.

Specify UCRETE® HP for:

  • Medium duty application thickness of (6mm) 1/4″
  • Environments requiring slip resistance even where wet processing occurs
  • Service temperatures of -45ºC to 100ºC (-50ºF to 210ºF)
  • Environments subject to chemical attack

Specify UCRETE® HP/Q for:

  • Nominal application thicknesses of (6mm) 1/4″
  • Areas where aesthetics are important
  • Service temperatures of -45ºC to 100ºC (-50ºF to 210ºF)
  • Areas where cleanliness and hygiene are important (an additional lockcoat should be added)

Ideal for interior applications, canning, bottling and other food packing facilities, refrigeration and freezer storage areas, restaurants and other commercial food production facilities, pharmaceutical laboratories, dairy, poultry, meat and food warehouses, facilities that require hot water and steaming during the cleaning process, areas where moisture is constant or flooring in need of repair.

UCRETE® WR

UCRETE® WR is an extremely durable polyurethane and concrete additive used to form cove bases and renovate walls. It withstand heavy traffic, harsh chemicals and fluctuating temperatures much better than a simple concrete surface. Specify it for:

  • Minimum vertical/base application thickness of nominal (4mm) 3/16″
  • Vertical base applications and steep slopes
  • Areas subject to temperature ranges of (-45ºC) -50ºF to (104ºC) 220ºF (System #1)
  • Limited downtime required; can be applied to 7- to10-day-old concrete
  • Areas where no priming of sealing of substrate is required

Ideal for exterior and interior applications, old concrete, dairy, poultry, meat and food plants,

storage areas, commercial freezers, pharmaceutical labs, precious metal refineries, textile warehouses, chemical manufacturing and places that makes use of other UCRETE products.

UCRETE® Performs, Test After Test

UCRETE flooring solutions have been tested for comprehensive, flexural and tensile strength, elasticity, thermal expansion and conductivity, water absorption and resistance to bacterial and fungal growth. To help in choosing which quality UCRETE® solution best fits the needs of your facility, consult the UCRETE Physical and Mechanical Properties Chart, a comparison of UCRETE® HF, UCRETE® HP and HP/Q, UCRETE® MF and UCRETE® WR that details the properties of each product based on the testing method used.

UCRETE®‘s strength and durability are well-known throughout the industrial flooring industry. The seamless systems withstand thermal expansion conditions by mimicking the movement of concrete. Thermal cycling tends to stress the adhesive bond, weakening its strength, which can lead to delamination in most epoxy resinous flooring systems. By comparison, UCRETE® maintains a consistent bond with concrete regardless of extreme physical conditions, outperforming other flooring surfaces.

Customized UCRETE® Solutions

To complement the existing architectural styling of your facility or coordinate with your company branding, each UCRETE® polyurethane concrete system is available in a variety of colors, including green, red, cream, gray, charcoal, blue and black.

To assure exact color match, make final approvals from physical samples. The color of the installed UCRETE® flooring may darken or change under exposure to UV light; however, product performance will not be affected.
