Food Grade Epoxy Flooring and Coatings

Food and Beverage Flooring

Being aware of available flooring options for food and beverage plants is critical in understanding what floor coating is best for your particular type of business. Every year, the USDA becomes more and more specific in regards to professional food processing, manufacturing, and preparation. Thermal-Chem manufactures a full line of USDA approved epoxy and urethane floor and wall coating systems for food and beverage processing facilities specifically. These 100% solid coating systems contain zero VOC’s and have virtually no odor while being applied. They also come in rapid cure versions to keep downtime to a minimum.

What is Food Grade Epoxy Flooring?

The USDA and FDA require food and beverage facilities to have seamless, non-absorbent, easily cleanable and durable floor coverings. Both our epoxy and Urethane Cement (ThermalCrete) satisfy those requirements.

 

Some benefits of both epoxy and urethane cement coatings are:

  • Satisfy both USDA and FDA floor covering requirements.
  • Seamless – does not give mold, mildew or bacteria a place to grow
  • Tough and Durable
  • Easy to Clean and Maintain
  • Provide a safe walking surface
  • Zero VOC’s and no odor while being applied
  • Rapid Cure times for quick installations and reduced downtime
  • Excellent chemical resistance and able to withstand the cleaning agents typically used in food and beverage manufacturing.
  • Our Urethane Cement (Thermal-Crete) has better thermal-shock resistance which food plants typically need when they have cold floors being washed on a daily basis with hot water. 

 

Why Does Thermal Chem Choose Urethane Floor Coding?

We recommend our ThermalCrete urethane cement systems for food and beverage facilities (meat and poultry plants, dairy, breweries, wineries, Industrial and commercial kitchens, and any other type of food or beverage manufacturing facility) over our epoxies because they have better heat resistance and thermal shock capabilities.

 

ThermalCrete – Urethane Cement Flooring for Food and Beverage Plants:

 

ThermalCrete in Food Processing Facility

ThermalCrete

ThermalCrete is our urethane cement system that provides the ultimate protection against “thermal-shock”.  ThermalCrete is designed specifically for use in meat processing, dairy, pharmaceutical, and food plants or anywhere that high impact, chemical exposure, and/or excessive temperature swings can be expected. These floor systems can be installed with an integral cove base, sloped to improve drainage, and are available in a variety of colors – to provide the ultimate safe and clean work environment. Urethane is known to last an incredibly long time-span and is also a heat resistant substance. It is also a popular choice for food and beverage plants due to their easily cleanable and durable surface. Benefits to this urethane cement flooring also include that it is slip resistant and acquires maximum sanitation.

 

TuffPatch FP

Be sure to check out our TuffPatch FP (Food Processing). It’s a floor repair kit designed specifically for the food and beverage industry. Since the FDA and USDA require food manufacturing facilities to keep their floors in good condition, these companies often do floor repairs themselves. Our TuffPatch FP comes in easy to use premeasured kits designed for use by in house maintenance personnel.
