TEASDALE FOODS – LOUISVILLE, KY – FLOWCRETE | NOVALAC – CASE STUDY

Teasdale Foods produces superior-quality tortillas, beans, hominy and sauces. They count on Surface Solutions to recommend and install high performance industrial flooring at their facility in Louisville, Kentucky.

After a 15,000-square-foot area of delaminated concrete is removed and cracks get patched in the aggregate, Surface Solutions’ expert installation team trowels on Flowcrete Flowfresh urethane concrete slurry at a ¼-inch, followed by a Novolac topcoat.

“Maintaining Teasdale’s high-standards is the reason we used Flowcrete products to resurface their flooring,” says Amy Manghelli, President of Surface Solutions, Inc. “We can count on Flowcrete to give us the quality results our clients expect.”

The result of our five-day surface prep and installation is a seamless, odor-free, FDA and USDA-approved food-safe floor for a company that is a leader in the food and beverage industry for over 70 years. This long-lasting surface resists bacteria, stains, heat and corrosive substances.

Novolac Topcoats Deliver

Novolac topcoats contain multifunctional epoxy resins that provide a high cross-link density when cured. Technically called Epoxy Phenol Novolac (EPN) resins, they are highly recommended for use in the food and beverage industry and other high-performance applications because they offer better chemical, solvent, and high-temperature resistance than standard resins. EPNs have a low viscosity and high functionality and are used in places that must withstand highly corrosive substances. As a topcoat, this type of resin offers heavy duty protection from impacts, acidity and moisture.
