Ideal in slaughterhouses
Because of the huge disparity in temperature in a short period of time, Polyurethane mortar flooring is ideal in slaughterhouses, meat/fish/dairy processing, breweries, and heavy-duty industrial food processing and pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities.
Floors in these environments are subjected to abuse, heavy traffic, chemical attack and the most hostile conditions out there. Polyurethane mortars do well in these abusive environments but not every area in a plant will require them. Epoxy systems still rank high on the preferred material selection list; however, trickier and more demanding environments are better suited with a cementitious polyurethane system. Coatings not only need to protect concrete from harmful substances, but from mechanical stress, too. In a cold range of temperature transition, epoxy coatings often become brittle and strained, reducing their ability to withstand mechanical loads. Moreover, this often presents a serious wear problem.
