Urethane Cement - Thermal Shock Systems

Posted on Wednesday, July 08, 2020

Urethane Cement - Thermal Shock Systems

If rooms in your warehouse, processing plant, or manufacturing facility are normally kept at cool or moderate temperatures, cleaning those rooms with hot water or steam will cause thermal shock.

Consequences of Thermal Shock

Thermal shock brings consequences that cause extensive damage to industrial floors. Your epoxy coatings being plastic will expand and contract much faster than the concrete they are stuck to in response to the sudden and significant temperature changes caused by high-temperature water or steam cleaning. When that happens, your flooring will be damaged by:

  • Cracking

  • Delamination

If you’ve noticed any of this flooring damage after industrial cleaning services, urethane cement systems will better protect your flooring and prevent downtime, slippage, and other hazards.

Industries That Benefit from Thermal Shock Systems

While many industries benefit from thermal shock urethane cement systems, our clients in food service, food processing, brewery, distillery, and agricultural facilities have been particularly impressed with our results.
