Flooring in production plants and chemical industry facilities needs to be incredibly durable, protecting against impacts, abrasion and withstanding the effects of heavy traffic and large machinery.
Tikkurila offers a wide selection of high-quality, hard-wearing solutions for this segment, with coatings suitable for areas subject to moderate mechanical and chemical stress such as laboratories and corridors, as well as for those suitable for areas that experience very heavy mechanical stress such as production areas, chemical storage facilities and warehouses. Because our solutions come in a wide range of colours, different areas can be clearly marked.
Excellent resistance to mechanical and chemical stress
Floor coating systems are chosen to withstand different conditions depending on where the facility fits in the production cycle. Tikkurila has coating solutions suitable for every requirement, including electrostatic dissipation (ESD) solutions with anti-static properties to protect areas with high dust levels or areas with air saturated with organic liquids from fires or explosions caused by sparks. Floors must also be resistant to chemical stresses to protect against a broad range of chemical spills. Tikkurila coating solutions are incredibly durable with a seamless, non-cracking finish, ensuring a longer service life for floors.
Quick to install with a long lifetime
Floor coating systems in the chemical industry are usually required to have a long lifetime because maintenance is very expensive due to the high cost of production-line interruptions. This means that durable thick-layer systems such as Temafloor 4000 or Temafloor 5000M are very popular, especially as they offer good mechanical and chemical resistance. Fast-curing solutions are also preferred in order to minimise production downtime. Products and systems in the Temafloor AC product family can be installed overnight and are ready to protect from day one.
Sustainable floor coatings for a healthier planet
All Tikkurila floor coating solutions provide outstanding protection for the treated surface while minimising any negative environmental impact. Our range includes several M1-classified products as well as paint systems that meet the LEED and BREEAM classification requirements. Tikkurila’s main focus is on developing floor solutions that improve air quality inside buildings, with low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and reduced emissions. We are trusted to deliver high-performance products that extend the service life of floors and reduce the environmental impact of buildings across their life cycle.
