Food processing plant flooring may be at risk of damage if not properly coated and treated. Fortunately, there are epoxy flooring systems designed to withstand high temperatures.

If you’re contemplating how to maintain or refurbish your food processing plant floor, it’s worth exploring the benefits of high-temperature epoxy for your industrial facility.

Features and Benefits of High Temperature Epoxy  

As anticipated, this epoxy system is designed to endure the high temperatures required for safe food preparation, production, and processing, which are crucial for many of the foods we enjoy.
The most heat-resistant epoxies can tolerate temperatures up to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit, surpassing standard/DIY epoxy coating systems by more than three times.
However, its benefits extend beyond temperature resistance. Installing food-grade epoxy coatings can safeguard your flooring, equipment, and storage containers from damage, corrosion and cross-contamination.
Furthermore, this type of epoxy exhibits exceptional resistance to steam and shock, while also possessing fire-prevention properties, making high-temperature epoxy an excellent choice for any food processing facility.

Due to its remarkable strength and minimal porosity, this coating boasts exceptional durability and offers substantial resistance to chemicals and moisture. Its seamless, non-porous surface eliminates hiding spots for moisture and contaminants, preventing their growth. Moreover, these floor systems exhibit biostatic properties that eradicate mold, mildew, fungi, yeast, algae, and bacteria. The active antimicrobial agent operates through a slow-release mechanism, ensuring continuous elimination of unwanted organisms throughout the floor’s lifespan.

How Long Do Heat-Resistant Epoxy Coatings Last?  

Several factors can influence the durability of high-temperature epoxy systems. We’ve observed that the following variables can impact the lifespan of these specialized coatings:

  • The intensity and duration of high temperatures experienced during food manufacturing, production, and processing phases
  • The proximity of flooring surfaces to primary heat sources within your facility
  • The quality of the initial installation and curing process of food-grade epoxy

While many highly durable epoxies, particularly those designed to withstand heat, can endure for decades without requiring substantial resurfacing, occasional coating applications can enhance the overall longevity of the floor.

Avoid Risky Epoxy Installation  

Epoxy flooring work can prove challenging without a thorough understanding of the product, curing procedures and the characteristics of flooring surfaces. Improper preparation, coating and curing of any epoxy flooring system significantly heighten the risk of health and safety concerns, fire hazards and damage to the flooring.
