OLDENBURG, GERMANY: 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 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.
