Kemtile installs another high-performance flooring system

A leading global food ingredients business and world's largest manufacturer of food coatings has recently appointed Kemtile to design and install a hygienic flooring system, as it extends production capabilities to accommodate additional machinery at its Oxfordshire manufacturing plant.

It's another global specification of Stonclad UF, a polyurethane mortar system, perfectly suited to the food and beverage industry, that offers high resistance to impact, abrasion, thermal shock and cycling and chemicals.

As well as having worked with the company's project engineer in previous posts, Kemtile has also undertaken a number of installations for the company. This time it was called upon to provide a hygienic flooring finish in an area previously used for storage.

Kemtile's credentials were further strengthened by the client's Canadian division being staunch supporters of Stonhard flooring systems. Kemtile, which has long been known and trusted by the company's UK arm, now installing Group-preferred Stonhard products, was a winning combination.

Kemtile installed 300m2 of a trowel applied, high-performance polyurethane floor screed, Stonclad UF in grey. Stonclad UF is exceptionally hard-wearing it incorporates a slip resistant texture and has a dense impervious surface, which makes it hygienic and easy to clean. It is installed in one application which makes it ideal for quick installations to minimize down-time. Such benefits make it an increasingly popular specification choice for many food and beverage manufacturers.

Stonclad UF is part of the world-renowned 11-strong Stonhard Stonclad range, which is a global flooring system of choice across many manufacturing industries.

Kemtile's David Priest said: "We're delighted that a world-renown foodservice player is trusting us to support its expansion. The system is market-leading across the globe for a whole host of manufacturing and processing sectors. We're excited to be able to offer the Stonclad UF solution, that is particularly ideal for food and beverage companies, as this is an industry that we're leaders in too.

"We have high hopes of continuing to bring together manufacturing excellence and market-leading knowledge and experience from a single source."
