Floor covering plays an important role in the areas where food products are produced, stored, and sold in the food industry. It is a necessity for hygiene processes to make floor coverings suitable for food safety in food production facilities.
Hygienic floor applications are necessary for safe food production in the food industry. The Food industry floors should be non-bacterial and easy to clean. A waterproof and completely hygienic floor is important for food production facilities. It will not pose any danger in terms of health, it is suitable for food safety; antacid tile applications offer effective solutions. The hygiene factor in bakeries and patisseries is one of the most important issues.
Features of Acid-Proof Tiles
Acid-resistant tiles, hexagonal tiles are the most suitable floor covering products for food production facilities floors. Antacid tiles are pressed in a high tonnage press and fired in 1200 degrees ovens. It is the most durable and natural material in the construction industry. Compared to alternative flooring solutions, acid-resistant tiles are much longer-lasting for meat and meat products floors. In addition, it is more economical because you can use it for many years
Professionals apply Acid proof tiles with the Vibratory Application Technique, the most guaranteed method accepted globally. This application method is different from traditional application methods. High-strength floors are obtained by using different machines at all stages.
Vibratory Application Technique
VSEE VIBRATION SYSTEM XW1000 is epoxy bonding and W13 liquid epoxy grouting application system;
it has been accepted in facilities with (-40 – +70) degrees heat environment on the floors of food factories in developed countries. The VSEE system is a CE-certified XW1000, gel paste type epoxy-based adhesive and epoxy-based W13 liquid joint filler application, which has been specially developed for the vibratory application method and has a much higher adhesion strength than its counterparts, and is also applied with a machine system.
VSEE is an indispensable solution for installations that require particularly high mechanical strength. Solving the solid and long-lasting floor needs of hot and cold rooms, acidic and caustic environments of all kinds of food, meat, milk, fish, beverage, and bakery product producers. It is a system where masters made 400 doses of m3 400 kg of cementitious thick bed mortar and ceramic application on the same day and saved time. It is the most economical and guaranteed solution with minimum maintenance cost in the long term.
Advantages of Acid Proof Tile Applications
We can list the advantages of suitable antacid tile applications for food production facilities floors as follows.
- Chemicals, oils, and acids, not affect it
- It is resistant to high temperatures,
- Thanks to its matte surface, it is non-slip and non-abrasive,
- Resistant to heavy substances and intensive use,
- It has higher strength compared to concrete,
- Due to its density, it does not produce bacteria, does not hold dirt,
- It does not stain,
- It is easy to clean and does not need routine maintenance,
- Since it is from natural materials, it does not change color,
- It is long-lasting,
- Environmentally friendly,
- It does not absorb water.
Hygienic Skirting Board Protectors
Another factor that causes bacterial growth in the food production facilities in areas that are difficult to reach during cleaning. Walls, columns, and panel bottoms are the areas where bacteria accumulate the most due to insufficient cleaning. Hygienic skirting boards, hygiene borders, and panel protectors applied to these areas are products that do not produce bacteria and workers can easily clean them. Also, the absence of glass fiber in hygiene skirting and hygiene borders, panel protectors is a necessity for human health and food safety. Thanks to its striking color, it also provides work safety.
Features of skirting and panel protectors;
- Firstly, it is antibacterial and antacid,
- Secondly, it is easy to clean,
- Thirdly, it is resistant to impact and bumps,
- Fourthly, it is food-safe and does not contain glass fiber.
- Also, it has an aesthetic appearance.
- Migration test documented.
The reaction of Vibroser Hygiene Skirting Board and Panel products against fire has been classified according to TS EN 13501-1+A1:2013 Standard and registered as “E” Class. Migration Test Certificated (Food Contact Compatibility Test). The products do not contain glass fiber for human health and food safety.
