“A topcoat with this level of durability is a must have in the markets it is used in,” said Ron Phillips, product manager at Dur-A-Flex. “It provides an excellent wear surface, excels in color stability and its unique texture helps to greatly reduce the risk of slip and fall incidents in both wet and dry environments."
In food environments, wide temperature swings occurring in a short period of time such as during hot water discharges from boilers, kitchen equipment or steam cleaning can have an adverse effect on the adhesion of synthetic flooring materials. By having a coefficient of thermal expansion similar to concrete substrates, Poly-Crete systems virtually eliminate the risks the company said. And the Poly-Crete system helps facility owners avoid the risk of floor failure that’s typically caused by surface erosion from chemicals, lactic acids and food-borne bacteria, commonly found in food environments.
