Resin flooring systems
24 November 2014
PPI Epoxy Coatings, in partnership with Flowcrete Americas, has played a critical role in the delivery of a state-of-the-art brewhouse for Florida Beer Company located in America’s spaceport Cape Canaveral, Florida.
Working together, the companies prepared a specification calling for the use of various specialist resin flooring systems throughout the building.
12,000 sq. ft. of a slurry broadcast cementitious urethane concrete system, Flowfresh SRQ, was proposed for the central production hall and bottling plant. It contains coloured quartz granules that create a positively textured profile to assist with preventing slip risks underfoot.
The phthalate-free material also contains silver ion-based antimicrobial additive, Polygiene, which limits the spread of bacteria and other harmful pathogens. The material is also designed to withstand temperature swings and thermal shock up to 180°F and is highly resistant in the face of chemical and solvent spillage.
Flowcoat SF41 HCS, a non-porous, highly chemical resistant epoxy floor coating system, was recommended for use in storage and packing halls, and – in safety yellow – for the brewery’s tank fermentation area.
