The Food Processing Industry: The Importance of Epoxy Floor Coating for Sanitary Purposes

Like many industrial buildings, the food processing industry must adhere to federal government standards. In fact, maintenance managers of food processing industries have a responsibility to meet the health standards of the government. When managed improperly, certain foods can contain hazardous materials which can cause an array of unwanted consequences. This is just one of the reasons why food chains and restaurants ensure safety measures and hold a strong commitment to sanitary procedures as a fundamental part of their business.

When it comes to working in the food processing industry, certain food byproducts often fall onto the ground. Examples include fats, oils, blood, sugar, and acids. Keeping all areas of a food processing industry clean—including the floor—is a requirement of the business. These standards are maintained via regular inspections by the health department.

One way to prevent messes and protect the floor of a food processing industry is by installing a certain type of floor coating. Many food processing industries rely on epoxy floor coating to improve the sanitary standards of their building, and ultimately, their product.

There is a good reason why epoxy floor coating is used so frequently in the food industry. For one thing, it provides protection against acids and alkalis. This type of flooring has excellent adhesion and can easily tolerate abrasive cleaning procedures and chemicals, which is a key factor in producing a clean, spotless working environment. A floor coating that can withstand the harshness of certain chemical cleaners is essential. Additionally, epoxy floor coating creates a safe working environment with its use of anti-slip adhesives, allowing for quick production and lack of physical safety issues.

Food processing industries require durable floors. The better the durability of a floor, the higher the chances are of sanitary conditions. A hygienic surface is vital in establishing a safe, efficient, and government-approved food processing plant.
