WHO IS THE COMPANY?
The customer is a company of excellence recognized all over the world; oversees the entire production chain of fresh and frozen beef, vacuum packed and in a protected atmosphere, ready-made preparations, hamburgers, canned meats and meat extracts, both under its own brand and for third parties.
In Italy the production plant where the work was carried out is located in the province of Modena. The worn concrete substrate had probably not been properly maintained, causing damage and detachment. The intended use was obtained by converting an old area into a new washing area of about 600 square meters where tools and trolleys are washed after cutting the meat.
It involved the support constantly in contact with water with a continuous dragging of trolleys and metal equipment.
Mpm, in collaboration with its business partner, has created a flooring by first providing for the rehabilitation of the support through peeling and subsequent extraction of the dust to ensure the adhesion of the resin coating.
Subsequently, we carried out a treatment based on DUROGLASS P1 / 2 two-component epoxy primer to guarantee the homogeneity of the substrate and to regularize the surface.
Subsequently, the solution adopted by mpm was a POLYURETHANE CEMENT coating, HACCP certified, a specific solution for food environments DUROGLASS CRETE FM in the non-slip version; by rapid hardening, it offers resistance to the proliferation of microorganisms and batteries.
Such solutions are particularly suitable in food environments, subjected to frequent washing where excellent chemical resistance is required and subjected to thermal shocks, as well as high mechanical resistance and wear and long life.
The work of Mpm, through an on-site inspection by one of our specialized technicians, has allowed us to select the existing problems in order to intervene, together with our applicator partner, to definitively resolve what has been tackled without removing what already existed and reducing time and labor costs.
