Solutions for Food and Beverage Facilities
Flooring tailored for any challenge
Under the Master Builders Solutions brand, BASF offers world leading flooring solutions for the food and beverage industry. The specialized Ucrete cementitous urethane flooring systems set the standards for seamless flooring. Ucrete is extraordinarily durable, easy to clean, and can be installed quickly in accordance with the needs of the facility to provide a fast return to service. Ucrete systems are seamless, dense and impervious to ensure the stringent hygiene requirements of this sector are met, while creating anti-slip properties for a safe working environment.
Ucrete demonstrates outstanding thermal shock resistance by retaining its integrity up to temperatures of 265°F (130°C). It also features extreme resistance to aggressive chemicals and mechanical stress, providing a long-lasting - and cost-effective - flooring solution.
Fast repair solutions with minimal cost and downtime
Repair solutions in food and beverage processing facilities face a number of demanding factors. Most crucially, repair solutions must be able to resist corrosive substances, harsh cleaning regimens, high levels of abrasion from carts or other machinery, and exposure to extreme thermal changes – all while reducing the facility downtime. The application of our fast curing repair mortars is ideal for patching up deteriorated floors in preparation for flooring installations.
We also offer a complete line of cementitious and polymer-based precision grouting materials for the stabilization and anchoring of machinery and transportation equipment.
Specialty concrete solutions
Due to the aggressive environment in food and beverage facilities, concrete used in these facilities must be highly durable and resistant to chemical attack. Our durability and strength-enhancing products extend the service life of concrete, reduce cracking and improve quality. For repair applications that require the use of concrete, the Master Builders Solutions brand also offers the strength-on-demand concrete technology for high-early strength to minimize downtime and facilitate early application of flooring materials.
Customized solutions can be developed through our premier technical support teams who can help select the appropriate admixture technologies and optimize concrete mixture proportions for the best balance of strength, durability, ease of construction and sustainability.
