New European MasterTop Flooring and Cleaning Products
With MasterTop TC 417W Clear, BASF has added a transparent, water-based polyurethane topcoat for decorative flooring solutions with enhanced hygienic and optical properties. This complements the BASF product portfolio of chemical solutions for construction, which is bundled under the Master Builders Solutions® brand.
The main advantages of the new product are antibacterial activity in accordance with ISO 22196:2011 and lower dirt pick-up, which reduces cleaning requirements and saves costs. Furthermore, the smooth matt finish without foaming or roller marks makes installation easier and improves the visual appeal of the floors.
Moreover, MasterTop TC 417W Clear contributes to good indoor air quality and complies with the low emission limits of the AgBB standard (Committee for Health-related Evaluation of Building Products). The topcoat is also available as an anti-slip version which makes the floor safer. In combination with decorative flooring systems from BASF, MasterTop TC 417W Clear is especially well-suited for application in buildings with high decorative and hygiene requirements such as hospitals, schools, cafeterias, offices or exhibition centers.
For the optimal maintenance of MasterTop flooring solutions, BASF has developed MasterTop CLN 50 – a highly concentrated cleaner and degreasing agent. The product is biodegradable without residue and supports a long service life of the flooring solution. It is approved for use in the food industry. MasterTop CLN 50 is anti-static, removes organic and inorganic contaminations and reduces the growth of bacteria; as a result, MasterTop floors remain as clean and safe as they were immediately after installation.
“With the launch of the new products we support our customers with steadily improved flooring solutions and we will further strengthen our product portfolio in the area of decorative flooring systems. These products will be produced and supplied directly from Oldenburg, the European headquarter for Flooring Solutions from BASF,” said Luc Van Eldere, Head of Performance Flooring Europe at BASF.
MasterTop – the right choice for your project
Under the MasterTop brand, BASF offers a broad portfolio of innovative, liquid-applied resin flooring solutions for a wide range of applications in for example public buildings, healthcare facilities, hotels and factory buildings. As the requirements faced by each individual floor are different, MasterTop products can be tailored individually to meet specific performance criteria, technical and aesthetic requirements, as well as allowing fast, cost-effective application. The non-solvented MasterTop systems feature low emissions, high strength and low maintenance costs combined with high durability. MasterTop wall coverings enable a seamless transition between floors and walls, thus ensuring the highest possible levels of hygiene and holistic interior design.
The Master Builders Solutions experts from BASF attach particular importance to research and development work for new, durable, low-emission flooring and wall solutions for indoor use. The Master Builders Solutions Training Center at BASF’s facilities in Oldenburg allows the use and the benefits of the innovative products to be demonstrated to customers at one central location in Europe.
