Four Industries That Benefit From Cementitious Urethane Floors

Thursday, July 20, 2017

Cementitious urethane flooring was designed with the food and beverage industries in mind. However, its appeal has become apparent throughout the commercial and industrial world, and it is being used more widely. Check out these four industries that benefit from cementitious urethane floors.

#1 Food and Beverage Industry

Cleanliness and sanitation are of utmost importance in the food and beverage manufacturing sector. Both industrial food manufacturing facilities and commercial restaurant kitchens would greatly benefit from installing cementitious urethane floors. One of the main reasons these floors are so popular in the food industry is the fact that they can withstand extreme temperatures. Cementitious urethane can expand and contract without the risk of bending, cracking, or buckling. Food manufacturing facilities often use scalding hot water and steam to sanitize their facilities, and cementitious urethane floors can handle the heat.

#2 Healthcare Industry

While epoxy floor coatings are pretty much the standard everywhere except for in the food and beverage manufacturing and distributing industry, cementitious urethane floors are gaining popularity. Another industry that would benefit from this type of flooring is the healthcare industry. Hospitals, clinics, and other health-related facilities have to thoroughly disinfect each day to prevent the transmission of diseases and other illness. While certain types of high performance coatings are incapable of weathering harsh chemicals, cementitious urethane floors can. In fact, urethane floors excel in areas that endure heavy traffic, significant amounts of water, chemical attack, and other harsh and abusive conditions.

#3 Entertainment Industry

Aquariums, water parks, theme parks, and other sectors of the entertainment industry would benefit by installing cementitious urethane flooring. Perhaps the flooring’s main selling point is the fact that it is impervious to liquid. When the coating is applied, there is no resulting seam; the entire floor is just one big piece. In a place that regularly comes in contact with water, such as a souvenir shop at a water park or behind the scenes at an aquarium, a floor without seams is great. There are no seams in which water could enter and cause mold, mildew, cracking, tearing, and other issues in the future. Furthermore, the added aggregates make the floor practically skid and slip resistant.

#4 Everywhere!

Perhaps we’re biased, but we genuinely believe that almost every industry would benefit from installing these high-tech floors. The floors are durable, resilient to water, skid and slip resistant, and affordable. Furthermore, they can take abuse from heavy machinery, tools with steel wheels, and can handle scratches and scraping a lot better than other types of floor coatings. Cementitious urethane floors are also fast curing, and as if that weren’t enough, these floors are environmentally friendly, as they’re often composed of plant-based oils.
