Introducing MC-DUR PowerCoat – a new heavy-duty industrial floor
May 05, 2022
With MC-DUR PowerCoat, MC-Bauchemie has launched a new industrial floor system that is resistant to very high chemical and mechanical attack while withstanding temperatures of up to 120 °C. The PU/mineral hybrid floor coating system has been developed for use in the food and chemical industries, in vehicle washing and tank cleaning facilities and wherever floors are exposed to extreme conditions due to mechanical stress, aggressive chemicals and/or strong temperature fluctuations.
Especially in the food industry, the chemical industry and in tank cleaning facilities, industrial floors have to withstand a variety of aggressive loads on a daily basis, be it hot steam cleaning, mechanical stress from forklift trucks, impact loads from falling tools or chemical attack from oils, strong cleaners or acids. Such conditions exceed the resilience of conventional industrial floors, especially when different aggressive loads come together.
MC-DUR PowerCoat – developed for extreme temperature requirements up to 120 °C
MC-DUR PowerCoat has been specially developed to withstand such extreme stress conditions. The new PU/mineral hybrid floor coating from MC-Bauchemie withstands very high chemical attack and mechanical stress as well as thermal loads of up to 120 °C. It even remains resistant in contact with aggressive organic acids. The PU/mineral hybrid floor coating is a four-component system consisting of a base, a hardener and a mineral powder component. The fourth component is the colour, which is simply added to the mixture on site in the form of a paste to achieve the desired shade.
MC-DUR PowerCoat is characterised not only by its extremely high resistance to chemical, mechanical and thermal stress, but also by its particularly good application properties. The new MC industrial flooring system consists of MC-DUR PowerCoat 200 as a primer and final sealer, a self-levelling coating MC-DUR PowerCoat 240 and the thick-layer mortar coating MC-DUR PowerCoat 280. With its very high density, the industrial flooring provides no breeding ground for fungi or bacteria and is easy to clean, so that the highest standards of hygiene can be achieved.
Hard-wearing industrial floor for temperatures up to 80 °C
MC-DUR PowerCoat 240 is applied with a squeegee in a layer thickness of 4 to 6 mm. It offers high impact resistance and remains fully functional even at thermal loads of up to 80 °C. The MC-DUR PowerCoat 240 system is therefore suitable for stressed floors and light steam cleaning.
Heavy-duty industrial floors for temperatures up to 120 °C
MC-DUR PowerCoat 280 is an extremely resilient mortar coating, which is applied with a squeegee in a layer thickness of 8 to 12 mm. This PU/mineral hybrid floor coating offers even higher thermal and mechanical resilience due to its ability to withstand temperatures up to 120 °C. MC-DUR PowerCoat 280 offers maximum safety in areas exposed to highly aggressive chemical attack and heavy mechanical loads. In addition, MC-DUR PowerCoat is also suitable for high-pressure steam cleaning. Combined with very high impact resistance, this industrial coating offers unsurpassed durability.
With both systems, the slip resistance can be individually adjusted as required up to R 13 (according to German standard BGR 181) with the appropriate quartz sand scattering. After installation, the new coating can be fully walked on and loaded after only 24 hours, so that facility downtimes can be minimised. MC-DUR PowerCoat thus offers a reliably safe, durable and hygienic solution for all demanding industrial floors that must permanently withstand the simultaneous occurrence of a variety of extreme stress conditions.
