Elevating Food Manufacturing - Polyurethane Cement Flooring

Food manufacturing business hallway; polyurethane cement flooring.


In the high demand world of food manufacturing, where hygiene, durability, and safety reign supreme, every aspect of the production process must be carefully considered – including the flooring. Enter Polyurethane Cement Flooring Systems, a game-changer in the industry renowned for its myriad benefits.


Let's explore why Polyurethane Cement Flooring Systems are the ideal choice for food manufacturing facilities, how they withstand steam cleaning and chemical exposure, their ability to withstand the dramatic temperature changes in food facilities. 



Polyurethane Cement Flooring System: A Game-Changer 

Polyurethane Cement Flooring Systems are engineered to combine the durability of cement with the flexibility and resilience of polyurethane.


Designed for heavy-duty wear, it combines polyurethane with Portland cement, aggregates and other beneficial additives to build a highly functional resinous matrix. 



Why Polyurethane Cement Flooring is Beneficial to Food Manufacturing


  • Hygiene: In food manufacturing, maintaining impeccable hygiene is non-negotiable. Polyurethane Cement Flooring Systems boast a seamless, non-porous surface that resists bacterial growth and is easy to clean and sanitize, ensuring the highest standards of cleanliness. 

  • Durability: Polyurethane cement flooring systems are resistant to abrasion, impact, and heavy loads, making Them well-suited for the rigorous demands of food manufacturing facilities. They provide long-lasting performance and cost-effectiveness. 

  • Steam Cleaning: Polyurethane Cement Flooring Systems shine in environments where steam cleaning is routine. They can withstand high temperatures without cracking or delaminating, ensuring structural integrity even in the face of intense cleaning protocols. 

  • Chemical Resistance: From cleaning agents to food byproducts, food manufacturing facilities are exposed to a variety of chemicals. Polyurethane Cement Flooring Systems exhibit excellent resistance to chemicals, oils, and acids, minimizing the risk of damage and maintaining their integrity over time. 



Moisture Tolerance: Ideal for Green Concrete Applications 

Polyurethane Cement Flooring Systems are moisture-tolerant, making them ideal for applications on new concrete substrates in just 7 seven days. This is a huge benefit when the schedule is tight! 



Coves: Radius vs CANT 

Polyurethane cement coves are an essential component of seamless flooring systems, designed to provide a smooth transition between the floor and the wall, enhancing both aesthetics and functionality.  


Radius coves, characterized by their gently curved edges, offer a sleek and modern appearance while minimizing the accumulation of dirt and debris in hard-to-reach corners. These coves are meticulously crafted to seamlessly blend with the flooring, creating a hygienic and visually appealing environment ideal for industries such as food manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare.  


On the other hand, cant coves feature a more angular design, providing a sharp transition between the floor and wall surfaces. Cant coves are favoured for their versatility and durability, offering robust protection against impact and ensuring easy maintenance in high-traffic areas. Whether it's radius or cant coves, polyurethane cement cove systems play a pivotal role in creating seamless and hygienic environments tailored to the unique needs of diverse industries. 


Polyurethane cement coves offer a range of benefits beyond aesthetics, including enhanced cleanliness, durability, and ease of maintenance. These coves provide a seamless transition between the floor and wall surfaces, eliminating the potential for dirt and bacteria buildup in hard-to-reach corners. By creating a smooth, impermeable seal, polyurethane cement coves contribute to a hygienic environment essential for industries where cleanliness is paramount.  


Additionally, the robust construction of polyurethane cement coves ensures resistance to impact and abrasion, prolonging the lifespan of the flooring system. Whether it's radius coves for a contemporary look or cant coves for added durability, polyurethane cement cove systems offer a versatile solution to meet the stringent demands of modern industrial and commercial spaces. 



The Importance of Top Coats for Protection 

While Polyurethane Cement Flooring Systems offer impressive durability on their own, the addition of top coats is crucial for enhancing protection and longevity. Top coats can provide an added layer of defence against UV Yellowing and degradation of the flooring. They also serve as a wear surface, reducing the risk of abrasion and extending the lifespan of the flooring system. Depending on the clients needs, budget, and overall schedule BNE is able to recommend the top coat that works for their clients. 



Elevating Food Manufacturing Standards 

Polyurethane Cement Flooring Systems are a game-changer in the food manufacturing industry, offering unparalleled hygiene, durability, and resistance to steam cleaning and chemicals. The ability for BNE to install Polyurethane cement flooring on new concrete makes it our first choice in when we are working in the food industry. 


With the addition of top coats, these flooring systems are fortified against UV yellowing and wear, ensuring they can withstand the rigors of the food manufacturing environment for years to come.  


By investing in Polyurethane Cement Flooring Systems, food manufacturers can elevate their standards, ensuring the highest levels of cleanliness, safety, and efficiency in their operations.
