Brooklyn Brewery specified close to 8,000 sq. ft. of Flowcrete's urethane cement for major upgrade works to its manufacturing facility located at the former matzo plant where it has operated since 1996.
Flowcrete’s durable and slip-resistant, Flowfresh SR cementitious urethane was selected for installation in the brewery’s main production hall with a subsequent topcoat of 100% solids Flowcoat CR for additional chemical resistance in the face of punishing brewing conditions.
Flowfresh material is highly durable offering excellent thermal cycling and thermal shock resistance. This makes the material ideal for installation in areas subject to extremely hot temperatures or those that may be exposed to intermittent hot spillage or hot water wash down processes.
Unlike dairy brick, Flowfresh cementitious urethane systems are installed in a seamless application, meaning no joint or grout lines, which can become susceptible to damage and cracking and once penetrated offer a ripe spot to harbour dirt, dust and other bacteria.
There are a lot of urethane cements available on the market but they’re not all the same. An antimicrobial additive – Polygiene® – is standard in Flowcrete's Flowfresh systems, which have been installed in countless food and beverage manufacturing facilities across the world for more than 30 years.
Flowfresh material is certified by HACCP International as food-grade for use in both wet and dry processing and production areas. This international standard recognises both the safety and suitability of this product to meet the variety of challenges found in the food and beverage manufacturing industry.
