How does MasterTop 330 work?
MasterTop 330 is an iron aggregate
topping designed to provide industrial floors with extra heavy-duty protection
against abrasion and impact. Applied over prepared hardened concrete it gives
significantly longer service life than either normal high strength concrete or
natural aggregate toppings.
Areas subject to heavy abrasive
traffic, impact and continuous wear, such as loading docks, aisles, waste
transfer facilities, truck or tractor repair areas, and mill scale sluiceways.
Areas where safety authorities have
deemed other floor surfaces hazardous because of excessive wear, dangerously
buckled steel plates, etc.
Mining workshops with tracked
Floors with scraper blades in
MasterTop 330 is not recommended for
areas where steel plate has worn through in less than one year, or where the
floor surface is exposed to chemicals that would affect a concrete floor.
For applications under these service conditions Ucrete may be a better option.
What makes MasterTop 330 a unique solution?
MasterTop 330 has a lower modulus of
elasticity than other toppings of equivalent compressive strength which
increases impact resistance and total energy absorbing capacity (toughness).
What are the benefits of MasterTop 330?
Ease of application - extended
working life at screedable consistency (130 to 180mm slump) allows ample time
to place, float and finish. Rotary compactors are not required.
Heavy duty, durable industrial floor
topping - formulated to be applied at a thickness of 13 to 40mm. Thickness
chosen depends on project requirements, including design traffic loading,
abrasion, impact and chemical resistance. Refer to BASF and MasterTop 330
Application Guide for more information.
High abrasion resistance - eight times
more wear resistance than plain concrete.
Greater toughness - energy absorbing
capacity is significantly greater than normal high strength concrete or natural
Increased impact resistance - four
times greater than plain concrete.
High density surface - resists oil
and grease penetration, reduces dusting and absorption.
joint deterioration - iron armouring eliminates the risk of dangerous
protruding or buckled joints from steel tiles, minimises damage to production
goods and increases the life of materials handling equipment.
