Having been recognized as a world leading manufacturer of polymer-based flooring technologies for close to four decades, Flowcrete Americas is delighted to announce the launch of it’s complementary Flowgard high-performance coatings range for use on wall and ceilings.
The Flowgard range incorporates three abrasion and scratch resistant, non-porous epoxy coating systems, which offer clients and specifiers the ability to integrate fiberglass matting for additional strength, durability and resistance in more arduous industrial environments.
Many industrial and institutional facilities, including food and beverage processing plants, pharmaceutical facilities, commercial laundries, correctional and animal care facilities, can benefit from the performance characteristics that come hand in hand with polymer-based wall and ceiling coatings.
This includes excellent resistance in the face of chemical attack and spillage - either from corrosive solvents, bodily fluids or commonly used foodstuffs. Unlike most paints, simply wiping down the surface using hot water and a soft sponge can easily clean away any stains or contaminants. Flowgard systems can be sterilized through hot water hose downs or using specialist cleaners and disinfectants – all without damaging the structural make-up of the coating.
The seamless, UV resistant and color stable finish of Flowgard epoxy coating systems eliminates the cracks, crevices and pores that are most commonly associated with the application of ceramic tiles.
In these applications, damaged grout lines are well known for harboring dirt and encouraging the growth of bacteria, fungi and molds - all of which can lead to an unsafe working environment as well as contamination of any produce within.
Flowgard wall and ceiling coatings resist flaking, chipping and cracking and are available in a range of sober solid color shades.
In facilities or working areas where accidental impact or scratching may occur, fiberglass matting can be incorporated into the system to offer additional impact, abrasion and chemical resistance where needed.
All systems in the Flowgard range complement Flowcrete Americas’ range of industrial epoxy and cementitious urethane flooring solutions, working in tandem to ensure a hygienic and impenetrable seal throughout the interior of the facility in question.
