Urethane Concrete Flooring
The latest technology in seamless heavy duty flooring is urethane concrete flooring, or cementitous urethane mortar floors. These floors can excel in many industries but are commonly found in; pharmaceutical production, food & beverage processing, and chemical processing. Urethane concrete flooring works great anywhere, but is especially useful where a tough floor choice is needed. If your facility has significant moisture vapor emissions a urethane concrete floor will protect you from having to worry about delamination and bubbling.
Industries That Utilize Urethane Concrete Flooring
Urethane concrete flooring excels in a number of areas. Food & beverage plants utilize this flooring option because it is able to withstand harsh chemicals, high impact, and thermal shock. All clients enjoy a shorter downtime when applying urethane concrete flooring as it is a single layer system. This cuts down on application time because there’s no waiting for additional coats to dry. Many times a urethane concrete floor is tougher and more resilient than traditional epoxy flooring.
High levels of production are critical in business. While handling tools it is easy for a pot, pan, knife or other items to be dropped and hit your floor. Having a tough urethane concrete floor will reduce downtime for repairs and keep the facility looking its best. Another benefit of having these tough floors is that your employees can just do their work without worrying about potentially damaging the floor. Many of our industries have repetitive movement of tools which drag equipment along the floor. Urethane concrete flooring resists scratching and scraping better than acrylic, epoxy, and other competitive systems.
Safety in production, and just about everywhere, is #1. Urethane concrete flooring incorporates an aggregate as part of the entire flooring system. This means that you have a specifically designed, no slip surface. Having no slip surfaces in production, particularly beverage & food production is a critical part of safety. Spills happen, and so do accidents, but having a solid footing from the get go helps prevent accidents.
Application Process Of Urethane Concrete Flooring
Depending on the industry requirements different thicknesses of urethane concrete flooring can be used. Every facility is different and you might have different flooring systems in place to start with. Urethane concrete flooring can be applied over a variety of flooring surfaces. These surfaces include: brick, tile, or other concrete.
The temperature range in which urethane concrete flooring can be applied is fairly wide. It is possible to apply the flooring as low as 35°F. This flexibility in installation helps keep production moving. Many food processing and beverage plants must keep their work areas cold to prevent spoilage. Another time saving benefit of urethane concrete flooring is that it has virtually no odor. This means that it can be applied without risking tainting meat or ruining consumable products. Best of all the flooring is resistant to all of the various chemicals used in beverage and food production.
