TEST KITCHEN | ILLINOIS | UCRETE DP & SS253 TOPCOAT | CASE STUDY

Fusion Tech is a family-owned business that is also an international brand. For over 20 years, the company has been delivering custom solutions for the biggest names in food processing, food service, agriculture, transportation and renewable fuels – specializing in the design, manufacture and installation of ovens, cutting and processing equipment and infrastructure products for the food processing industry.

After building a brand new test kitchen at their headquarters in Roseville, Illinois, Fusion Tech knew just who to call for the best flooring solutions in the food and beverage industry: Surface Solutions.

Our expert installation crew quickly gets to work, applying BASF Ucrete DP to 3,100 square feet of new concrete (no cover), then adding chemical resistance to the floor with an application of Surface Solutions-branded SS253 Novolac topcoat.

The beautiful red flooring is ready for its first day of work in just four days.

“Our customer is thrilled,” says Amy D. Manghelli, President of Surface Solutions, Inc. “This is just the first of several flooring projects we’re completing for Fusion Tech.”

What is the Ucrete DP System?

Developed 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. Celebrating a 50th anniversary in 2019, Ucrete floors stand out from the rest with a higher resin content 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 the ability to withstand thermal shock. The Surface Solutions installation team has perfected the application technique with years of experience.

Ucrete DP is a flow-applied mortar available in a number of colors, including the rich red used on Fusion Tech’s test kitchen floor. It is an ideal flooring product to use in commercial kitchens and restaurants, freezers and coolers, meat, poultry and seafood plants, dairies, beverage and bottling facilities as well as chemical processing and pharmaceutical plants.
