What’s happening in this video… This baking facility had been operating with an unprotected concrete floor, and needed to repair the badly damaged concrete in its production facility. Some areas of the floor underneath the oven were eroded down to the underlying aggregate layer.
“The [resurfacer’s] biggest benefit is it prevents penetration of water and detergent that were eating away at the concrete and eroding it to gravel. The flooring gives the facility a cleaner, brighter, newer look all the time.” – Anthony P., Owner
Frequently asked questions about bakery flooring and the best way to protect them…
On-site floor inspection revealed floor damage caused by normal operational and environmental working conditions. Boiling water blasting under pressure at 214°F on the floor from the oven kettle as well as exposure to extreme heat from beneath the oven during baking operations deteriorated the concrete floor all the way down to the underlying aggregate.
Based on the consideration of causes and on-site inspection of floor thermal cycles during routine activities, such as hot steam power-washing and temperature extremes in the blast freezer and oven room as well as chemical attack from detergent used during cleaning maintenance, a seamless, cementitious urethane mortar floor resurfacing system was recommended as opposed to an epoxy floor coating.
Epoxy flooring is not suitable in extreme temperature environments because these resin flooring systems can not handle the aggressive thermal shock and will crack and pop off the floor.
Urethane Cement Mortar – Flooring System for Food and Beverage Processing Facilities
This urethane mortar was chosen based on its ability to withstand thermal shock while providing excellent resistance to heavy duty impact, abrasion, corrosion and heavy wear, including fork lift traffic.
Since this floor coating was being used in a bakery floor processing area, antimicrobial floor coatings was another requirement. Bacteria fighting floors is most often a top priority.
Urethane cement mortar is made to order for industrial floors, commercial kitchen floors such as in a restaurant and any food & drink flooring with constantly damp or wet conditions, extreme temperature differences and sanitation processes.
This floor resurfacing system also has very low odor with no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) so it meets USDA, FDA and OSHA compliance standards for clean flooring. For a food processing facility like this baking facility, food safe flooring and hygienic flooring are critical requirements.
