Flowcrete Introduces Coatings Range for Walls, Ceilings

Flowcrete Americas has unveiled its complementary Flowgard high-performance coatings range for use on walls and ceilings.

The Flowgard range incorporates three abrasion and scratch resistant, non-porous epoxy coating systems, which offer clients and specifiers the ability to integrate fiberglass matting for additional strength, durability, and resistance in more arduous industrial environments.

Many industrial and institutional facilities can benefit from the performance characteristics that come hand in hand with polymer-based wall and ceiling coatings, according to the company.

Benefits of Polymer-Based Wall, Ceiling Coatings

These benefits include strong resistance in the face of chemical attack and spillage either from corrosive solvents, bodily fluids, or commonly used foodstuffs. Unlike most paints, simply wiping down the surface using hot water and a soft sponge can easily clean away any stains or contaminants. Flowgard systems can be sterilized through hot water hose downs or using specialist cleaners and disinfectants all without damaging the structural make-up of the coating.

The seamless, ultraviolet (UV) resistant, and color stable finish of Flowgard epoxy coating systems eliminates the cracks, crevices, and pores that are most commonly associated with the application of ceramic tiles.

In these applications, damaged grout lines are well known for harboring dirt and encouraging the growth of bacteria, fungi and molds all of which can lead to an unsafe working environment.

Additional Safety Features

Flowgard wall and ceiling coatings also resist flaking, chipping, and cracking, and they are available in a range of sober solid color shades.

In facilities or working areas where accidental impact or scratching may occur, fiberglass matting can be incorporated into the system to offer additional impact, abrasion, and chemical resistance where needed.

All systems in the Flowgard range complement Flowcrete Americas’ range of industrial epoxy and cementitious urethane flooring solutions, working in tandem to ensure a hygienic and impenetrable seal throughout the interior of the facility.
