Accella Polyurethane Surface

Accella Performance Materials helped develop a unique architectural design of the USS Arizona Mall Memorial located on the University of Arizona campus in Tucson.

Accella provided specialty materials, including polyurethane materials and rubber flooring, for a full-scale deck outline of the iconic U.S. battleship that was sunk at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. The full-scale deck, measuring 97-foot-wide and 597-foot-long, utilizes Accella materials traditionally used for outdoor athletic surfaces, similar to sport tracks. The 6-inch rubberized curb of the ship’s deck incorporated durable polyurethane and custom red granules to match the accompanying brick wall garden.

This surface of the ship’s deck is not only durable, but helps create a lasting tribute to the fallen who served on the USS Arizona.
