Today’s focus on sanitation standards and cleanliness means that the importance of hygiene is often considered when selecting a new floor finish.
Electro-static discharge (ESD) can pose a threat to sensitive electronic equipment, and in environments that handle volatile gases, powders, liquids or other substances it can even be a potentially dangerous ignition source. This charge can quickly build up within a floor when subjected to regular traffic from people and wheeled equipment.
Flowcrete’s chemical resistant coatings can maintain a seamless, high-quality finish for an extended period of time despite contact with even the most caustic of solvents, acids and alkalis. Specific sectors can even specify floors tailored to meet the common chemicals used in that industry, for example, aircraft hangars can install a surface that won’t be damaged by aviation hydraulic fluid.
Manufacturing under cleanroom or clean conditions is essential for a growing number of industries in order to safeguard process operations and the quality of components.
Choosing a high performance floor doesn’t mean sacrificing aesthetics for functionality. Flowcrete’s decorative flooring systems combine contemporary style with world-class quality to provide seamless surfaces that can maintain a visual impact despite intense working conditions.
The floor area can be very sensitive to changes in temperature, whether it’s excessively high, below freezing, very sudden or over a long period of time.
Long downtime periods and delayed construction schedules can be caused by curing times for resin floor systems. Waiting for a floor to fully cure can be consigned to the past thanks to the Flowfast range of methyl methacrylate (MMA) enhanced floors.
Proving that a building is able to meet a high standard of hygiene is essential in many sectors, especially contamination sensitive settings such as the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and electronics industries.
Flowcrete Asia supplies robust resin floors that are able to withstand even the most intense and challenging industrial environments. This means maintaining a seamless, high performance finish in the face of heavy impacts, frequent cleaning, thermal shock and even the movement of commercial airliners or 60 tonne dump trucks.
Excessive moisture within the substrate can cause significant issues when installing a new flooring system. Blistering can occur when moisture vapour is emitted from the substrate through the process of osmosis causing a pressure beneath the surface, and leading to unsightly blemishes or debonding of the finish.
Landscaping areas are to be widely considered in commercial and residential environments when striving to create a great first impression to visitors.
Flooring refurbishment projects require solutions that are going to revitalise the floor finish but which won’t incur long periods of problematic and unprofitable down time.
Slip resistant flooring is a health and safety must-have for industrial and commercial facilities, in order to prevent a member of staff or customer suffering a painful and costly accident.
Flowcrete Asia is committed to providing environmentally friendly flooring solutions that have been sustainably sourced, manufactured and distributed. This includes incorporating recycled material into the floors, as well as limiting or completely removing toxic substances such as volatile organic compounds and phthalates.
Long term exposure to the elements can wear away mountains and erode rock – so imagine what it could do to an unprotected floor finish. Wind, rain and ice can all eat into a floor finish while UV rays are notorious for discolouring previously bright and vibrant surfaces.
