MEAT PROCESSING PLANT – CHICAGOLAND – UCRETE® – CASE STUDY

Whenever a worn-out floor in a food processing plant must be replaced, the business almost always needs the repair done fast, so there is minimal downtime.

That’s what happens when 2,800 square feet of flooring fails at this Chicagoland facility, and they trust Surface Solutions, Inc. to deliver a food-safe surface in their “chicken wing room” that is a cut above the rest … in two days.

To prepare for the new install, the experts at Surface Solutions grind off the existing mortar system, key in edges and transitions and cut out metal bolts from the floor. They choose UCRETE UD200, a durable, non-toxic, USDA- and FDA-approved flooring system ideal for dairy, poultry, meat and food processing facilities, and trowel it to a nominal ¼-inch thickness.

As requested, they complete all of this … in just two days.

Is a UCRETE® Floor Right for Your Meat Processing Plant?

UCRETE® flooring systems provide a safe, sanitary and economical option for food and beverage companies. Because they contain no seams or grout lines to harbor bacteria, a medium to heavy-duty application of UCRETE at a thickness of ¼-inches to 3/8-inches (6mm – 10mm)

is ideal for:

  • Areas subject to mechanical cleaning
  • Environments under constant chemical attack
  • Places with service temperatures of -45ºC to 112ºC (-50ºF to 235ºF)
  • Areas requiring slip resistance even when wet
  • Interior or exterior industrial environments
  • Facilities where cleanliness and hygiene need to meet FDA recommendations
  • Areas where no priming of sealing of substrate is needed
