Sika's proven screed fits the bill for world food company

For a new production area at a food factory in Leeds, a hard-wearing and fast-applied flooring system was needed that would offer long term performance durability.  Using their industry expertise and unrivalled practical experience at challenging flooring projects across the globe, Sika delivered the perfect solution with a proven high strength screed that would be able to withstand constant traffic and heavy pallet loads.

Following the removal of the existing latex flooring, over 600m2 of the Sikafloor 20N Purcem was applied at a 6mm depth to a large production area at Tropics Foods by specialist flooring contractor, Ultrasyntec.

Highly resistant to chemicals, fatty acids and temperature, Sikafloor 20N Purcem is a polyurethane modified cement screed offering excellent strength and because it normally requires no primer, its installation is considerably less complex than many other systems.

Designed to fulfil an almost endless combination of functional and aesthetic requirements, Sikafloor systems meet all industry requirements for mechanical and chemical resistance, impermeability and fire resistance. Developed to offer exceptional protection to floors subjected to heavy loading, abrasion and high chemical exposure – Sikafloor 20N Purcem proved ideal for the highly trafficked production facility.

Combining innovation in product development, the highest standards of performance and industry leading technical expertise, Sika’s range of flooring solutions for healthcare, manufacturing and retail facilities meets and exceeds client expectations, industry best practices and building regulations and legislation. All Sika flooring specifications are available via NBS+ and are supported with comprehensive technical support from Sika’s technical team.

With more than forty years’ experience in the flooring industry, Sika has a range of high performance flooring screeds for the most demanding of environments and in the case of this world food manufacturer has ensured their production facility has a floor that will last for decades, minimising maintenance cost whilst providing a safe environment in which to work.
