MEAT PROCESSING – CHICAGOLAND – UCRETE® UD200 – CASE STUDY

A well-known meat processing plant, with over 20 years’ experience supporting Chicagoland’s rich farming tradition, has a raw cooler floor in need of repair. The epoxy mortar is failing due to years of abrasion from fork lift and truck traffic coupled with the thermal shock from wash down procedures.

The flooring experts at Surface Solutions, Inc. remove the delaminating epoxy mortar from the 3,000-square-foot cooler and apply the UCRETE® UD200 coating treatment and flooring system at ¼-inch thickness, ideal for accommodating the thermal cycling of a proper wash down. And it only takes the Surface Solutions crew two days to complete the project.

“Surface Solutions worked closely with maintenance and engineering personnel to prevent condensation from forming in the room while being brought to 55-degree minimum slab temperature, for proper installation,” says Amy D. Manghelli, Vice President of Sales at Surface Solutions, Inc. “We’re looking forward to working together on a future relationship with this meat processor.”
