A new heavy-duty antistatic industrial flooring system is now available on the European market, according to the Construction Chemicals division of BASF (Mannheim, Germany).

Based on a polyurethane cement technology, Ucrete MF40AS reportedly complements the company’s portfolio of chemical products for construction, bundled under the Master Builders Solutions brand.

Ucrete MF40AS offers advantages ranging from a safe and aesthetic working environment to robustness, durability and chemical resistance, according to the manufacturer.

Because of its antistatic properties, the new Ucrete MF40AS flooring system protects electrostatic-sensitive devices and can be used in explosion hazard areas, according to BASF.

With this combination of properties, BASF characterizes the flooring system as a “unique offering” for customers in the food, pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries.

Like its other Ucrete flooring solutions, the new system is described as dense and impervious, meeting the highest hygienic standards and withstanding extreme thermal, mechanical and chemical impact—thus offering a long service life, the company says.

Because of its antistatic properties, the flooring system protects electrostatic-sensitive devices and can be used in explosion hazard areas, it adds.

“Our customers’ demand for antistatic flooring systems is growing,” says Philip Ansell, European Marketing Manager for Ucrete Industrial Flooring at BASF. “This is a result of the EU ATEX (ATmosphères EXplosibles) directives that state requirements in the field of explosion protection, as well as the growing number of electronic components that are being used throughout industry,” he adds.

Additionally, Ucrete MF40AS is now available in two new colors—cream and bright yellow—in addition to the standard range, which includes red, green, orange, grey, blue and green/brown.
