A Wealth of Hardwearing Floor Coating Solutions on Show at IPPE 2015
Leading industrial flooring manufacturer Flowcrete Americas will be demonstrating the benefits of its performance cementitious urethane, epoxy and MMA flooring systems, to a wealth of food and beverage manufacturing, processing and packaging experts at the upcoming International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE).
From booth 7051, the industrial flooring specialist will show how the company offers a selection of performance floor finishes for production and processing environments - all geared up to the stringent health and safety regulations governing the US food industry.
Held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA from January 27 – 29 2015, the expo brings together individuals from the world of agriculture, poultry and meat processing with the view to showcasing the latest innovations designed to encourage smarter processes and improve efficiencies industry-wide.
The upcoming event is to be sponsored by the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), and the American Meat Institute (AMI).
Flooring innovations on show from Flowcrete Americas include Flowfresh, a range of phthalate-free cementitious urethane systems, which have been engineered to provide excellent chemical, thermal and slip resistance in both wet and dry processing environments.
Flowfresh systems offer clients a seamless finish with no cracks, thus avoiding the accumulation of dust, dirt and bacteria. This renders the surface easier to clean and maintain and ensures improved hygiene between wash cycles.
The material also contains a powerful silver-ion based antimicrobial additive, Polygiene®, within the resin matrix, which has been designed to inhibit bacterial growth on the surface of the coating. Unlike other antimicrobial surface treatments or topcoats, this technology remains active for the lifetime of the products.
Other products available include fast-track MMA Flowfast coatings, which dramatically cut downtime and speed up new-build and renovation programs, through an application process that sees the floor ready for use just two hours after installation.
In addition, Flowcrete Americas offers a large variety of hardwearing epoxy flooring solutions for use in non-production areas, back-of-house maintenance zones and staff break room facilities.
Michael Dzialo, Vice President of Sales for Flowcrete Americas said; "The benefits of Flowcrete materials for the food production, processing and packaging industry include durability, with protection from foot and wheeled traffic, impact resistance and mechanical attack.
"Safety is also assured with slip resistance levels developed to meet the exact needs of an individual area, along with chemical and heat resistance.
“Rigorous hygiene standards are catered to with the Flowfresh range. Not only containing the Polygiene® compound to inhibit bacterial growth, the material offers a seamless finish and can be used in conjunction with coving to prevent dust and bacteria from collecting, as well as ensuring a seamless transition between the floor and wall.”
