Protective Surface Coatings Ltd refurbished an old factory floor for a food manufacturer in Ledbury. The client who was expanding their food ingredient business, wanted a food hygienic floor, that was hard wearing, seamless, easy to clean and could give some anti slip resistance in the wet.
Polyurethane Screed at Protective Surface Coatings
At Protective Surface Coatings Ltd, as Industrial Flooring Experts, we were able to provide the ideal solutions which was a 6mm heavy duty, polyurethane flooring and polyurethane screeds.
Polyurethane Screeds offer the highest level of durability to date and FeRFA, the UK resin’s governing body, classifies these screed as Type 8, meaning they are the most hard wearing, robust screeds on the market.
More about our Polyurethane Screeds
Polyurethane Screeds are generally laid between 6 and 9mm and a lifespan of 10 years or more can be expected in the toughest of environments. Due to their relatively low viscosity compared with epoxy screeds they can be hand trowel applied to produce a heavy duty, matt, anti skid surface which is proof against almost everything including steel wheeled traffic and substantial impact and abrasion.
These products also tolerate steam cleaning at high temperatures when applied at 9mm or more.
Best chemical resistance
Being totally non porous they offer the best chemical resistance of all the resins and their surface profile confers slip resistance even in wet process areas.
Typical applications for a heavy duty polyurethane screed are in industries such as food, pharmaceutical, chemical and other manufacturing sectors where spillages of corrosive or organic liquids occur. Food processing plants, bakeries, abattoirs, breweries, dairies are the primer users and even in these extreme conditions a life span of 10 years and more can be expected.
6mm Heavy Duty Polyurethane Screed
The old floor was shot-blasted clean and then two coats of damp proof primer was laid, followed by the 6mm heavy duty, polyurethane screed. The project was completed in a week. The client was delighted with their new floor that was completed on time and in budget.
