Flowcrete Australia will be taking its food safe flooring expertise to Foodtech Queensland 2016, a new trade event for the state’s food and beverage manufacturing industry.
The show, which is taking place from the 26th – 28th June at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, will provide a platform for food industry professionals to learn about the latest ideas, trends and technologies available to the market.
Diversified Communications, which also organises the hugely successful FoodPro exhibition, have co-located the show with The Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology’s 49th Annual Convention, which attracts up to 400 food scientists and specialists.
On stand C38, Flowcrete Australia’s resin flooring experts will be on hand to discuss the key flooring characteristics that food and beverage manufacturers need to be aware of to ensure a clean and safe working environment.
Visitors will also be able to find out how the antimicrobial enhanced, polyurethane Flowfresh range has been uniquely formulated to minimise the risk of contamination incidents within food industry facilities.
The seamless and impervious finish that Flowfresh creates is easy to clean, as contaminants cannot hide in hard to clean cracks or gaps. The robustness of this system means that it will retain its functionality for an extended period of time in the face of typical food industry challenges, such as corrosive food by-products, thermal shock from hot ovens and steam cleaning, spillages, heavy impacts and more.
Every Flowfresh system includes the antimicrobial additive Polygiene®, which is able to eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria that comes into contact with the floor. The polyurethane system has been proven to meet the ISO 22196 standard, which measures the antibacterial effectiveness of plastics and other non-porous surfaces.
Flowfresh SR is the only flooring system available to the Australian market that combines HACCP International certification with Polygiene® antimicrobial protection and an easy to clean, gloss finish.
Flowcrete Australia’s Managing Director, Sean Tinsley, said: “We’re always developing flooring for the food and beverage sector that helps businesses ensure a safe, effective working area that complies with the industry’s strict regulations. In fact, our Flowfresh range has been specifically designed to overcome the difficult challenges that flooring within food production and processing facilities will face.
“We’re looking forward to sharing the knowledge that we’ve built up over many years of supplying fit-for-purpose flooring with Foodtech QLD’s visitors to help them during the specification, installation or maintenance of food grade flooring.”
The effectiveness and versatility of Flowfresh was exemplified recently when Huon Aquaculture built a new Smokehouse and Product Innovation Centre in Parramatta Creek, Tasmania. The food manufacturing design specialist Wiley specified a Flowfresh SR floor for this $12 million project, as it would be able to maintain an anti-slip, easy to clean finish in what would be a busy environment prone to slippery conditions. Different colours were used in the Cold and Hot Smoke Slicing rooms to avoid cross contamination by creating a clear visual difference between the two areas.
