Resinous Flooring: Self Leveling Polyurethane

Perdüre UMC

Perdüre UMC is a three-component urethane modified cementitious flooring system formulated to withstand harsh and demanding environments. Perdüre UMC flooring system combines the most demanding performance characteristics - resistance to impact, abrasion, chemicals and thermal shock. A urethane (polyurethane) binder is combined with Portland cement and graded aggregates to deliver superior performance characteristics. This unique combination of urethane-cement and graded aggregates makes the flooring system resistant to high levels of moisture vapor transmission. It can be installed with integral cove base for areas requiring sanitary seamless wall to floor transition.

The cementitious polyurethane flooring system, Perdüre UMC - in addition to being able to absorb and dissipate heat and cold, has excellent sound deadening properties, particularly in areas where the operation requires trafficking with steel wheels.

Perdüre UMC flooring systems designed to be used in:

  • Food processing areas
  • Production areas
  • Bottling areas
  • Cook/Chill areas
  • Commercial kitchens
  • Pharmaceutical plants
  • Sanitize / Wash areas
  • Chemical processing areas
  • Loading / Unloading - plant vehicle areas

Salient Features & Benefits

  • Excellent adhesion to various substrates - concrete, quarry tiles, brick pavers and plywood
  • Formulated for installation ease and quick turn around
  • Very low odor - can be used in occupied areas
  • Breathable flooring system - withstands high levels of moisture vapor transmission
  • Does not support fungus or bacteria
  • Excellent chemical and thermal shock resistance

Perdüre UMC is available as a coating, self-leveling and trowel grade forms.

Perdüre UMC-SL
Perdüre UMC-SL is a seamless self-leveling, medium to heavy duty, solid colored, three- component, urethane modified cementitious flooring system designed to provide excellent resistance to abrasion, impact, and chemical attack. Perdüre UCM-SL can be broadcasted with quartz aggregate to increase surface texture and slip resistance. The system is typically applied at 3/16" to 1/4" in thickness.

Perdüre UMC-TG
Perdüre UMC-TG is a trowel grade, heavy duty, solid color, three-component, urethane modified cementitious flooring system, designed to provide excellent resistant to thermal stress, abrasion, impact and chemical attack. This system is typically applied at 1/4" to 3/8" thickness. It can be installed with an integral cove base requiring seamless wall to floor coatings.

Perdüre UMC-CO
Perdüre UMC-CO is a three-component, solvent-free, high build, colored, coating system based in the cementitious urethane technology. It is typically installed as a top coat for Perdüre UMC broadcast textured finishes. It can be applied also to refresh existing cementitious urethane flooring at a fraction of the original flooring. It provides excellent chemical resistance properties and very good durability against abrasion and mechanical damage. This system is typically installed at 10mil thickness.
