Mannheim, Germany – BASF has launched a new anti-static version of its Ucrete polyurethane-based concrete technology.
Designated MF40AS, it is part of the firm's Master Builders Solutions brand. It is designed for environments where it is necessary to protect electrostatic-sensitive devices and can be used in explosion hazard areas, the firm said.
“Our customers’ demand for antistatic flooring systems is growing. This is a result of the EU ATEX (ATmosphères EXplosibles) directives which give explosion protection requirements, as well as the growing number of electronic components used throughout industry. We aim to meet this increasing demand and further strengthen our portfolio of industrial flooring solutions,” says Philip Ansell, European Marketing Manager for Ucrete Industrial Flooring at BASF.
Ucrete MF40AS’s combination of chemical resistance, durability and antistatic features represents a unique offering for a safe working environment – especially for customers in the food, pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries, BASF added.
Ucrete MF40AS is also available in the new colours, cream and bright yellow, in addition to the standard range, the firm added.
