BASF launches Ucrete UD200 SR flooring system featuring enhanced slip resistance in North America

-Enhanced slip-resistance is built into system
-Exceptional impact, wear and chemical resistance


The Construction Chemicals division of BASF Corporation has launched Ucrete® UD200 SR flooring system, which features enhanced slip resistance. This product is the latest addition to the Ucrete portfolio in North America.

Ucrete UD200 SR is a heavy-duty, trowel-applied polyurethane concrete floor system formulated specifically for use in wet-process applications and wherever a robust slip-resistant floor is required. UD200 SR is unique in that the enhanced slip resistance is built in to the entire system. This ensures that even with wear, the floor will retain its original slip-resistance performance. This feature also enables contractors to eliminate the step of adding a slip-resistant layer during application, thereby saving time.

“Slips, trips and falls are the most common workplace incidents across all industries, but workers in the food and beverage industry are particularly at risk due to splatter or spillage of liquids and wet conditions,” said Esther Villeneuve, Business Manager, Commercial & Industrial Flooring, North America.  “The launch of Ucrete UD200 SR demonstrates BASF’s continued investment in solutions that enhance safety in the workplace.”

Additional benefits of Ucrete UD200 SR include a high thermal stability that fully resists steam or hot water cleaning up to 266ºF (130ºC); chemical resistance that tolerates organic and inorganic acids, alkalis and salts; and excellent impact abrasion resistance to handle heavy traffic.
