Valspar Steps Up Performance of Flowfresh SR Concrete Flooring Resurfacer
WHEELING, IL, December 7, 2006 - Valspar Flooring, a division of Valspar, Inc. (NYSE: VAL), announced today a major upgrade to its Flowfresh® SR chemical resistant cementitious urethane floor resurfacer with built-in antimicrobial.
Utilizing a proprietary new aggregate, this next generation of Flowfresh® SR offers improved thermal shock resistance, withstanding temperatures to 210° F. SR also provides superior protection against impact and abrasions that would scratch, stain or otherwise damage a lesser quality flooring system. Quick turnaround is further enhanced with simplified installation, particularly in slope-to-drain areas.
"We heightened the thermal shock resistance of our SR system to help safeguard it against frequent steam, high-temperature cleaning, and the spilling of hot water, syrups and other liquids," said Lysa Young, Marketing Manager, Valspar Flooring. "Flowfresh is acclaimed throughout the industry and around the world for its hard wearing durability, hygienic properties and quick turnaround - the next generation of SR is closely following this tradition."
New Flowfresh SR is ideal for resurfacing concrete floors in wet processing areas, and is especially effective in USDA-inspected food, beverage or pharmaceutical plants. Polygiene®, a high- performance, natural antimicrobial is integrated into all Flowfresh flooring products to inhibit the growth of bacterial odors, guard against degradation from microorganisms, and prevent the growth of a wide range of harmful microbes.
Equally important in wet locations is Flowfresh's high level of slip resistance that helps to eliminate or reduce injury risk. For enhanced slip protection, the system can be finished with a decorative quartz broadcast.
Millions of square feet of Flowcrete, the technology built into every Flowfresh floor, have been installed around the world-chosen in manufacturing facilities, commercial kitchens and other areas demanding high performance from their floor. Valspar Flooring offers the full Flowfresh® line in North and Central America.
