St. Louis, Missouri – Accella Polyurethane Systems’ poured-in-place polyurethane and rubber flooring is to be used in the USS Arizona Memorial Mall on the University of Arizona campus in Tucson.
The open-air mall includes a full-scale deck outline of the USS Arizona, the battleship sunk at Pearl Harbor in December 1941.
The dedication ceremony coincided with the 75th anniversary of its sinking.
The flooring combines recycled EPDM rubber granules from Accella’s Ultimate RB division with polyurethane matched materials. “We feel deeply honoured that the Accella brand was selected as a participating vendor for this meaningful project,” said Accella Performance Materials president and chief executive Andy Harris, a University of Arizona alumnus.
