BASF Industrial flooring achieved Halal certification
The certification process, carried by Halal Certification Europe, involved a detailed investigation of the raw materials and suppliers used in the manufacture of Ucrete and also the auditing of the company’s production facility in Redditch, UK.
“This approval certifies that Ucrete industrial flooring fully conform to Halal requirements and demonstrates our commitment to meeting all our customers’ requirements” says Ian Smith, Global Business Segment Manager Flooring at BASF.
In people’s everyday life the focus often is on various consumer goods, such as meat, processed food and beverages, or cosmetic products and pharmaceuticals. It is very difficult for the non-specialist to be sure that any particular product is Halal compliant. That is where certification comes in, to make clear which products are safe to use. Now, investors and facilities managers can be certain that their Ucrete industrial flooring meet all the requirements of a modern Halal production facility.
Ucrete is a highly durable surface protection system based on a unique resin technology, which has been meeting and exceeding the most demanding hygienic requirements of the food and beverage industry for nearly 50 years. This flooring systems are non-solvent-based and rapid curing, odorless and do not taint.
Ucrete is also already certified to the Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Gold standard for low emissions and complies with the requirements of AgBB (German committee for the health assessment of construction products). It is approved for use in food production facilities operating HACCP quality systems. It is perfectly suitable for applications in the meat industry thanks to its chemical, mechanical and thermal shock resistance.
