Flooring firm Flowcrete Australia will use FoodPro 2008 to demonstrate how its seamless Flowfresh polyurethane resin flooring range is helping food processors and manufacturers to beat off bacteria in a wide range of environments.
The Flowfresh range is specifically designed for application in food & drinks processing, dairies, pharmaceutical and healthcare facilities and anywhere where hygiene is the top priority. FoodPro will be held from 21-24 July at the Sydney Exhibition & Convention Centre.
A compound known as Polygiene is locked into the resin matrix of Flowfresh floors, providing round the clock protection against a range of bacteria.
A special additive in Polygiene emits ions of silver, which continuously migrate to the surface where they suppress microbial growth, remaining active throughout the lifetime of the flooring system.
Polygiene also inhibits the growth of mould, fungi and mildew and protects against the propagation of superbugs. Flowfresh meets AQIS and international specifications.
Hard-wearing, slip-resistant, easy to clean, Flowfresh helps companies achieve regulatory compliance and provides a safe working environment. Good thermal shock distortion properties make Flowfresh suitable for use in extreme temperatures (-40°C to +120°C), from chillers and freezer rooms to hot, wet processing areas where live steam cleaning is carried out.
Australian firms using the system include AP Foods, Nestle, Big Sister and Baxter Healthcare, as well Fonterra and Westland Milk of New Zealand. Flowfresh will be installed in situ on the Flowcrete Australia stand at FoodPro.
