Exceptional durability with four and a half times higher scratch resistance
The approximately 10,000 square meter floor of the production hall of the largest textile group in northern Portugal, Polopique, is exposed to very high mechanical and thermal stresses. With MasterTop 1912, we offer an innovative flooring system that combines exceptional durability with long-lasting esthetics.
The advanced Xolutec™ technology from Master Builders Solutions gives the floor high scratch resistance and ensures that it still looks like new even under strong mechanical load. In addition, the product convinces with very low VOC emissions.
“The old floor was very problematic and had many characteristics that we didn't like, so a quick lasting intervention was necessary.”
Isabel Carneiro, General Manager, Polopique
Polopique offers a wide range of textile products, from the raw material to the finished garment. The large machines and the transportation of goods in the production hall put the floor to the test every day. “The old floor had many problem zones, although it was a relatively new building”, Isabel Carneiro, General Manager of Polopique, remarks. With MasterTop 1912, Polopique opted for an innovative flooring solution that guarantees high esthetic durability, scratch and wear resistance and low emissions. “Polopique is aware of its responsibility towards the environment and society”, Carneiro says. “For us it is important to produce as sustainable as possible and to include sustainable technologies into our production process. This was the reason for our decision to choose this flooring system for our plant.”

Master Builders Solutions is proud of its more than 100 years of experience in the manufacture of sustainable system solutions for the construction industry. Polopique is a reference factory for Master Builders Solutions in Portugal. “In my opinion”, Santos says, “we have gained Polopique's trust through the solutions we have implemented in other areas with different requirements. Based on this trust, they asked us to develop a suitable solution for further areas at the production site.” The advanced Xolutec™ technology makes MasterTop 1912 quick and easy to apply.
“The MasterTop 1912 system consists of a primer, a base layer and a topcoat. It is applied in several steps to obtain a high-quality end result.”
