Urethane Modified Cement | Milwaukee, WI

A  Milwaukee area Brewery was ready to install a new, high performance food and beverage concrete flooring system. From an industry installation perspective: Breweries, kitchens and food processing facilities have one of the most important and challenging concrete flooring environments.

Breweries, kitchens and food processing floors must be:

  • Durable
  • High traction
  • Easy to clean
  • Withstand heavy abuse
  • Chemical abuse
  • Low temperatures (freezers/coolers)
  • High temperatures (ovens/stoves)
  • Thermal shock
  • Mechanical abuse
  • Bacterial resistant environment
  • Completely seamless

The product that best fits these performance characteristics is: Urethane Modified Cement Flooring with a troweled vertical cove.  Urethane Modified Cement system helps the food service vendor meet all the requirements and have a  high performance floor that will exceed any other floor systems in the food processing industry.

Urethane Modified Cement floors are superior to other floors including:

  • Ceramic
  • Vinyl
  • Dairy tile

It’s not advisable to have a permeable system where any production of brewing or food/beverage products for human consumption is being manufactured; a non-permeable, non-porous surface is desired/required for food/beverage processing floors and a UMC system is engineered specifically for this purpose:

  1. Easy to clean
  2. Non-porous
  3. Does not promote bacterial growth
  4. High traction under wet conditions
  5. High temperature tolerant
  6. Low temperature tolerant
  7. Impact resistant
  8. Thermal shock resistant
  9. Cove system to create secondary containment of the space
  10. Chemically resistant

This flooring system will provide this Milwaukee Brewery client with a durable, high performing, seamless floor that meets the demanding challenges of breweries, kitchen and food processing facilities.
