Global resin flooring manufacturer, Flowcrete Group Ltd has secured International Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) Certification for its Flowfresh range of antimicrobial enhanced polyurethane floors.
HACCP International certification is a globally recognised benchmark of food safety, and is an important set of criteria for businesses eager to gain access to lucrative export markets.
“We’ve created Flowfresh out of an exclusive global partnership with the antimicrobials manufacturer Polygiene to provide food manufacturers with a floor that goes above and beyond the highest food safety standards. A silver-ion based bactericidal additive is added into the Flowfresh material, empowering the floor finish with the ability to eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria in contact with the coating,” explains Grant Adamson, Technical Director, Flowcrete Group.
As per HACCP guidelines, seamless and impervious floor finish must be maintained at all times even when subjected to a large-scale food processing facility’s intense working environment. Flowfresh has been specifically formulated to provide a surface that will comply with food industry regulations for an extended period of time despite the sector’s inherently challenging conditions, the company stated in a release.
Flowfresh has also been proven to meet the ISO 22196 standard, which measures a surface’s antibacterial effectiveness. The polyurethane system underwent rigorous testing to match this internationally recognised benchmark of quality.
