Brewery Flooring Heavy Duty Anti-slip Steam Cleanable
Breweries provide a challenging environment for unprotected concrete flooring.
Brewery floors need to be:
- Safe to work upon in dry and wet conditions
- Capable of being thoroughly cleaned and sanitised
- Able to withstand hot water discharges
- Steam cleanable
- Resistant to a wide range of cleaning chemicals
- Able to withstand heavy loads
- Abrasion resistant
Cleaning and sanitising operations can subject brewery floors to significant thermal cycling.
Because of their effectiveness on protein and bacteria, strong chemical cleaners are often used in the cleaning of brewery floors.
Pumadur HF heavy duty polyurethane resin flooring for breweries is chemically resistant to such cleaners.
Pressurised steam cleaning or boiling water can subject the floor to thermal shock and cause surface spalling in unprotected concrete.
Heavy duty polyurethane resin brewery flooring can be cleaned at temperatures up to 120oC.
Being acidic by nature, beer and spirits will attack unprotected concrete by reacting with the alkaline cement paste that ‘glues’ the concrete together.
This weakens the concrete making it more susceptible to damage from impact, abrasion, thermal cycling, and further chemical attack.
Pumadur HF brewery flooring is chemically resistant and unaffected by such spillages.
Brewery flooring can present slip hazards as it is often wet or damp. Pumadur HF heavy duty polyurethane resin provides an anti-slip finish in both wet and dry conditions.
Heavy duty polyurethane resin brewery flooring is highly recommended for brewery floors owing to its physical and chemical properties.
Polyurethane resin flooring technology was developed and patented by ICI in the 1960’s and is ideally suited for installation into wet food environments such as brewery and distillery floors.
They are often referred to as food grade or food safe floor finishes with most of the manufacturers and have had their systems tested and verified by independent bodies such as the Campden & Chorleywood Food Research Association.
Pumadur HF heavy duty polyurethane resin brewery floors cure quickly, provide excellent chemical resistance and can withstand organic acids and common cleaning chemicals
Pumadur HF heavy duty polyurethane resin brewery flooring is extremely hard wearing with excellent impact and abrasion resistant properties and is impervious and non-porous.
For many years heavy duty polyurethane resin brewery floor systems hav demonstrated excellent performance in wet processing environments and in areas subject to severe thermal cycling, especially within the harsh conditions often present in the brewery industry.
Pumadur HF heavy duty polyurethane resin brewery floor screeds are ideally suited for brewery floors as they can be subjected to high temperatures and steam cleaning offering first class performance in these aggressive environments.
BS8204-6 categorises Pumadur HF as a Type 8 (highest rating) floor finish that is suitable for use in very heavy duty working environments – in such situations Pumadur HF has an anticipated life span in excess of 10 years with 15 years being a realistic expectation.
