UCRETE® Flooring Systems

What is UCRETE®?

Developed 50 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.

New Product! UCRETE® UD200 SR

UCRETE UD200 SR is a unique, trowel-applied, four-component, heavy-duty, polyurethane-concrete floor finish system with exceptional resistance to aggressive chemicals, high temperatures and heavy impact. UCRETE UD200 SR has a textured surface providing a safe and attractive floor in wet and greasy environments and can be put back into service after 24 hours.

Product Benefits

  • Suitable for use in food and beverage facilities – HACCP Certified
  • Integral high traction slip resistant texture for increased workplace safety (ANSI/NSFI B101.1 & B101.3)
  • Exceptional impact, wear and chemical resistance
  • Fully resistant to temperatures up to 266°F/130°C
  • Fast curing; floors fully serviceable after 12-24 hours
  • Low odor
  • Available in a variety of colors

UCRETE UD200 SR floors are dense and impervious, providing an ideal floor finish for all wet and dry process applications in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical industries and wherever a robust slip resistant floor is required. Without backrolling, UD200 SR is slip resistant in both static and dynamic conditions – 0.97 Mμ and 0.86 Mμ respectively. Its combination of durability, speed of cure and ease of cleaning with temperature resistance up to 302 °F (150 °C) are a unique offering meeting the high demands of facilities. These floors are tolerant of substrate moisture and rapid curing facilitating the maintenance of tight construction schedules and reducing down time in refurbishment applications. UCRETE UD200 SR is installed at a finish thickness of ¼” to ½” (6–12mm), which is determined by the service and cleaning temperatures and the severity of traffic expected on the floor.

UCRETE UD200 SR is recommended for conditions requiring maximum chemical resistance, slip resistance and cleanability, especially in extreme temperature environments. For the use of facilities operating HACCP. Specific applications include:

  • Meat, poultry and seafood plants
  • Dairy plants
  • Beverage and bottling facilities
  • Pharmaceutical plants
  • Commercial kitchens and restaurants
  • Chemical processing plants
  • And freezers and coolers

UCRETE UD200 SR can be used in interior and exterior applications. Direct UV exposure may cause some color instability.

UCRETE® UD200

UCRETE® UD200 (formerly known as 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® DP

UCRETE® DP -a solid color flooring system- and DP/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® DP 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® DP/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® RG

UCRETE® RG (formerly known as WR) is an extremely durable polyurethane and concrete additive used to form cove bases and renovate walls. It withstands 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 make use of other UCRETE products.

UCRETE® IF

UCRETE® IF (Iron-Filled), an iron aggregate, heavy duty, polyurethane hybrid flooring system, has a proven track record for providing long-lasting durable floors, especially in the harshest work spaces of heavy engineering workshops and processing areas, under mixing heads, in storage bunkers and loading docks and heavy equipment maintenance facilities. It is ideal for industrial environments, providing a high level of impact tolerance and abrasion resistance; in fact, a Ucrete IF floor can actually increase impact and abrasion resistance because it is formulated to withstand wider temperature fluctuations and tolerate both organic and inorganic acids, alkalis and salts.

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.
