Gulfood Manufacturing 2017 - Food Industry Flooring - Resin Flooring

Flowcrete Flowfresh Flooring

At this year’s Gulfood Manufacturing exhibition, which is taking place at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 31st Oct – 2nd Nov, Flowcrete will be showcasing its ability to supply world-leading food industry flooring to projects all around the world!

From London to Dubai and from Johannesburg to Mumbai or Kuala Lumpur, the resin flooring manufacturer Flowcrete is able to provide the largest and most complex food processing facilities with ultra-hygienic floors that have passed the most rigorous industry testing.

Contemporary food and beverage businesses are not confined to just one country, but are globally active, border-straddling organisations that need to have processing, production and logistics operations spanning many geographical regions.

Attendees to Gulfood Manufacturing 2017 will be able to talk to Flowcrete, which will have resin flooring experts from around the world on hand to discuss its high-performance resin solutions, including the antimicrobial polyurethane flooring range Flowfresh.

Flowcrete Flowfresh FlooringSince its invention over a decade ago, Flowfresh has been used by some of the world’s most well-known food and beverage businesses to create reliable, safe and sanitary platforms underfoot. Over this time, big name brands such as Heineken, Unilever, Thorntons, Coca-Cola and Diageo have all discovered the benefits of installing this HACCP International certified, ISO 22196 compliant product collection.

The Flowfresh range has been specifically designed to overcome the challenging conditions within food and beverage plants, which will inevitably subject the floor finish to a long list of issues such as thermal shock, heavy impacts, forklift truck traffic, corrosive food products, point loading and more.

To ensure that Flowfresh is at the forefront of hygienic technology, Flowcrete has developed the system with antimicrobial technology experts, Polygiene®. The result of this exclusive global partnership is that silver ions have been incorporated within the system’s resin matrix - an innovative formulation that means a Flowfresh floor is able to inhibit the growth of bacteria on the surface of the floor by up to 99.9%. The bacteria killing property of Flowfresh has been tested in accordance with ISO 22196, which measures a surface’s antibacterial effectiveness.

Flowcrete Flowfresh FlooringContamination is a serious concern for food producers, with approximately 16% of foodborne illnesses being attributed to a contaminated processing environment. Unprotected concrete floors can be potential sites of contamination as bacteria can easily build up within its porous and brittle structure. The globalised nature of today’s food industry means that just one foodborne illness could easily become an international food disaster!

If you want to talk to Flowcrete about flooring that will help to safeguard a food processing facility against serious contamination issues then its expert team will be available on stand A1-43 in Hall 1.
