Ucrete: The World’s Toughest Floor For The F&B and Pharmaceutical Industries

Food safety has become an issue of great concern since a series of scares has affected the reputation of global firms. As such, food and beverage manufacturers as well as hotel groups have become more cautious with their food handling processes, so as to prevent food contamination and other health hazards.

Food processing areas are always under close scrutiny from their owners and regulatory authorities alike. This is because contamination is more likely to occur in these areas, where cleanliness and hygiene are paramount but are sometimes overlooked. It is a must for concrete floors on these premises to be covered with protective coating systems to withstand hot water and aggressive chemical cleaning. With thousands of flooring systems in the market, it is crucial that decision-makers select a long-lasting flooring solution with minimal maintenance required.
