Floors in professional kitchens and other food processing environments – including production, packaging, and warehousing facilities – have strict hygiene and safety requirements. Tikkurila has a long and trusted history of developing durable, high-quality floor coatings that fulfil these requirements and meet food industry standards for indirect food contact.
Excellent chemical, heat and mechanical resistance for professional kitchens and food processing industry
Floor coatings in food processing environments and professional kitchens need excellent chemical resistance to protect against food spillages – which can sometimes be chemically aggressive – and strong cleaning agents, ensuring floors remain easy to clean, hygienic and functional.
In the food processing industry, coating solutions must also protect against heat and thermal shocks, as well as the mechanical stresses that come from busy environments with heavy-duty equipment.
Tikkurila coating solutions for the food processing industry have been trusted for decades to answer these needs, maintaining excellent performance and hygiene to safely protect both products and personnel.
Quick to install with excellent durability
In a professional kitchen, you don’t have time for downtime, so Tikkurila floor coating solutions for food processing environments are quick to install and cure. For example, Temafloor PAS Clear can be installed in just one day and it offers excellent UV stability, slip resistance, durability and flexibility.
Our flexible solutions for professional kitchens ensure the floor remains hygienic, seamless and undamaged whatever goes on in the kitchen. This is important for food preparation and processing environments because cracks in flooring or between tiles can hold dirt and food, allowing bacteria to grow.
Professional products for demanding environments
Temafloor 4000 is recommended for floors subjected to steam and heat such as those in professional kitchens, withstanding 110°C dry heat and 60°C in immersion. It also offers excellent impact resistance and withstands heavy wear, making it perfect for coating concrete floors exposed to heavy mechanical stress.
Sustainable performance and protection
Our coating solutions for floors deliver the highest levels of performance and protection while minimising the product’s environmental impact. In doing this they extend the service life of the floor and reduce the environmental impact of buildings during their life cycle. We also focus on developing floor solutions that have low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and reduced emissions to improve indoor air quality. Our extensive range includes several M1-classified products as well as paint systems that meet the LEED and BREEAM classification requirements.
