Dormen foods goes ‘nuts’ for Ardex industrial flooring system.

With an outstanding portfolio of industrial flooring installations, ARDEX UK is regarded as the flooring industry's 'total solution provider'. Their range of industrial flooring products has been developed to work together as an integrated system offering total peace of mind to industrial flooring contractors, specifiers and clients.

These credentials were a key factor in ARDEX being specified for a new extension project on behalf of Dormen Foods, premier manufacturer of luxury nuts and snacks that are supplied to some of the finest hotels in Europe. Working in partnership with flooring contractors Protective Coating Systems (UK) Ltd of Chippenham, Wiltshire, ARDEX provided the ideal industrial flooring system for this 1100m2 project.

The new washroom area received a tough and easily cleaned layer of ARDEX R 90 P Rake and Trowel Grade Heavy Duty Polyurethane Screed. Available in a range of colours, ARDEX R 90 P was provided in cream as a four component formulation in pre-measured packs for easy on-site mixing. The special formulation provided an easily worked system that can be applied rapidly with a pin rake and trowel. The cured system forms a hard wearing, pigmented layer from 4mm up to 9mm thick, perfect for use in aggressive areas where a seamless finish and maximum cleanliness is a pre-requisite.

The remaining floor areas were completed with ARDEX R 70 P Medium Duty Polyurethane Screed in cream, which again offers the high performance and user friendly benefits of ARDEX R 90 P and when cured provides a highly durable, pigmented layer from 2mm up to 5mm thick.

To complete the system, ARDEX R 10 P Polyurethane Coving and Wall Render was applied to the perimeter of the entire area. Combining outstanding wearing properties with high chemical resistance and decorative properties, ARDEX R 10 P is ideally suited for use in demanding environments such as food processing and storage, abattoirs, drinks production, dairies and general heavy duty plant and traffic areas.

“ARDEX industrial flooring products are highly respected with industrial flooring contractors as they deliver enhanced performance, cost effectiveness and ease of use. We regularly specify ARDEX as we can rely on their products and service 100% ”, commented Daryl Hopkins of Protective Coating Systems (UK) Ltd.
