Almost 5 years ago, leading bread manufacturer Easibake required a hygienic, seamless, anti-slip floor surface to its mixing rooms. Mapei’s Mapefloor CPU/HD was specified and installed.
PREPARATION: An area of 500m² was prepared using HTC 950 RX remote control diamond grinding equipment and HTC 80 iD dust extractors; dust collection is a crucial part of this process not only from a health point of view but also to prevent surrounding areas being filled with dust.
APPLICATION: When the surface was clean and dry, Mapefloor CPU/HD was poured and spread out evenly to the thickness required with a steel straight trowel. After spreading the coating, the surface was leveled and smoothed off with a long-bladed flooring trowel.
HARDENING TIME: Floors coated with Mapefloor CPU/HD set to light foot traffic after approximately 8 hours at +20°C and may be opened to light vehicle traffic after approximately 24 hours at +20°C. The product develops its full strength after 4 to 5 days at minimum +20°C, although it depends on the actual surrounding conditions on site.
Mapefloor CPU/HD complies with standards applied in the foodstuffs sector: EN 1186, EN 13130 and prCEN/TS 14234, as well as the Decree of Consumer Goods that represents the conversion of European directives 89/109/EEC, 90/128/EEC and 2002/72/EC regarding contact with foodstuffs.
Revisiting the site recently, Easibakes Managing Director stated “we are still very satisfied with the quality of the floor provided by tps360, the standard of work was excellent and the floor has stood the test of time”
