Food & Beverage Flooring
The food and beverage industry has a large list of requirements when it comes to commercial flooring. The industry requires flooring solutions that must consider challenges like:
- Temperature extremes
- Harsh chemicals and cleaning materials
- Moisture fluctuation
- Heavy traffic from customers, carts, forklifts, and fixtures
- Thermal shock resistance
- Slip resistance
- Impact resistance
Some of the commercial flooring solutions we consider include:
Epoxy is a seamless product that, when installed properly, will be clear of cracks, divots, and imperfections. It is easy to steam clean on a regular basis. Epoxy is a great choice if your facilities use chemical products, intense heating and cleaning processes, or alkalis that would require commercial, industrial-grade flooring.
Methyl methacrylate (MMA) is an acrylic resin, and the installation process consists of a primer, main coat, and finishing coat. Some of the advantages of MMA include the fact that it will adhere to almost any surface, which means you don’t need to replace your existing flooring. Once you apply the finish coat, the floor is almost impervious to damage. In addition, you can apply MMA in almost any temperature and cures so quickly that you are able to be back in business within 2–3 hours.
Urethane cement flooring is the choice of many food and beverage facilities because it provides great flexibility. It also accepts heavy foot traffic, cart traffic, and large machines. It withstands harsh abrasives and is resistant to slips, chemicals, and abrasion. Urethane floors accept decorative finishes in unlimited color choices and are especially good for facilities needing to avoid thermal shock and thermal cycling.
Polyurea flooring is a fast-curing and fast-hardening concrete technology. While traditional epoxy requires approximately 3-5 days to cure, polyurea cures in about two hours. This treatment is also great for heavy traffic areas or facilities that require standing up to oils, chemicals, gases, and other abrasive products.
