BASF has launched two new MasterTop topcoats for decorative and industrial applications which can be used in public rooms such as education, office and healthcare facilities as well as in industrial environments. With MasterTop TC 417W and MasterTop TC 442W, BASF has added two water-based polyurethane topcoats with enhanced optical properties, improved hiding power and UV resistance to its product portfolio of chemical solutions for construction which is bundled under the Master Builders Solutions® brand.
MasterTop TC 417W is a water-based, low-emission polyurethane topcoat. Like all MasterTop products, this polyurethane-topcoat is liquid-applied and hardens to form a matt, seamless surface. Besides its improved hiding power and higher wear resistance it is easier to clean, thus saving the user costs and cleaning efforts. In combination with decorative flooring systems from BASF, MasterTop TC 417W is especially well-suited for application in buildings with high decorative requirements and stringent hygiene standards, for example in offices, canteens and restaurants, schools, hospitals and medical centres.
MasterTop TC 442W is a water-based polyurethane topcoat designed especially for industrial flooring systems. This chemical-resistant, non-solvented topcoat is suitable for both smooth and blinded surfaces. Thanks to the enhanced scratch resistance and higher UV resistance, MasterTop TC 442W provides reliable protection for all subjacent layers of the floor system and ensures a durable, aesthetically pleasing floor for industrial environments such as warehouses, factory halls and corridors.
The Master Builders Solutions experts from BASF attach particular importance to research and development of new, low emission and durable flooring solutions for indoor use.
