This colourful coating was developed to provide the food and beverage sector with aesthetically appealing floors able to keep up with the rapidly evolving needs of this complex industry.
Even the most intensive and challenging facilities within the food industry can utilise Flowfresh to create floors within a large-scale complex that meet the strict demands of regulators and international standards while simultaneously helping to ensure a safe, pleasant and efficient working environment.
The entire Flowfresh range has recently been HACCP International Certified. This globally recognised benchmark of food safety designates materials, equipment and services that can be used within the food industry without risking the integrity of the food.
The HACCP International guidelines state that the floor plays a crucial role in addressing contamination risks, as an inadequate floor can become a prime site of bacteria build-up. Not only does the floor have to provide a hygienic, seamless, impervious and easy to clean surface, it needs to do so for the long term in the face of corrosive chemicals, moisture, impacts and thermal shock.
The Flowfresh range of polyurethane flooring revolutionised the food grade flooring market when it was first introduced and it remains the only resin flooring solution available to the Australian market that harnesses the natural bactericidal properties of silver to eliminate germs in contact with the coating.
This innovative formulation stems from Flowcrete’s exclusive global collaboration with the anti-bacterial agent manufacturer Polygiene®. The Polygiene® additive is homogenously distributed throughout the polyurethane matrix of Flowfresh to create a surface able to kill 99.9% of germs. This bacteria targeting property has been proven to meet the ISO 22916 standard, which measures a surface’s antibacterial effectiveness on plastics and other non-porous surfaces.
