    BASF inaugurates its first Ucrete® Competence Center, to support performance flooring customers in Asia

    • New Center complements Ucrete manufacturing hub to meet Asian customers' changing needs

    • Heavy duty polyurethane flooring systems better address performance flooring challenges in Asia​


    Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – May 16, 2019 – BASF today celebrated the inauguration of its new Ucrete® Competence Center in Bukit Raja, Klang, Malaysia. Strategically located next to the Ucrete regional manufacturing hub in Malaysia, the new center will complement existing facilities, bringing production, training, product development, application know-how and testing services under one roof. The new facility will also enable BASF to offer quick response times, and the strongest local technical service experience for BASF flooring applicators in ASEAN.

    "With the increasing customer demand in ASEAN for durable flooring systems with reduced maintenance costs and production downtime, we see the need to build a center adjoining our manufacturing hub. This new center will create a unique environment for our customers and applicators, and will help employees to enhance their skills as performance flooring professionals," said Arnold De Silva, Director, BASF Construction Chemicals ASEAN. "Ucrete is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. This investment marks an important milestone in enhancing our innovation capabilities to better serve our customers in the construction industry," Arnold added.

    The new facilities include state-of-the-art training aids, customized application tools for product demonstration and cured sample displays. The center also hosts highly specialized equipment for testing Ucrete flooring performance, including abrasion resistance, anti-slip resistance, pull-off strength, flexural and compressive strength, as well as anti-static measurement.

    Ucrete is a highly durable surface protection system based on a unique resin technology, which has met and exceeded the most demanding hygienic requirements of the food and beverage industry for nearly 50 years. Ucrete industrial flooring systems are non-solvent-based and rapid curing, odorless and do not taint. Ucrete is certified to the Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Gold standard for low emissions and complies with the requirements of AgBB, a German Committee for Health-related Evaluation of Building Products. It is approved for use in food production facilities operating HACCP quality systems. Ucrete is perfectly suitable for chemical and pharmaceutical applications, thanks to its chemical, mechanical and thermal shock resistance.
