Milliken Chemical
Milliken-Kex, a business unit of Milliken & Company, is successfully addressing sanitation issues with a new line of rubber mats that feature outstanding antimicrobial and anti-fatigue properties for a wide range of demanding applications. Called UltraSan™, the new mats are made from Elastoguard® rubber, introduced by Milliken Chemical Speciality Elastomers (MCSE) in May of 2003. The new rubber compounds use a proprietary silver-based biocide called Antimicrobial AlphaSan® to control, if not halt, the growth of bacteria and fungi on the mats, while avoiding challenges that organic biocides have posed in the past. The UltraSan mats were developed jointly by Milliken-Kex and MCSE to address both anti-fatigue and antimicrobial concerns. These include through-holes and molded-in texture on both the mat front and back to provide cross channels to minimize water or solids build-up, while also protecting footwear from prolonged contact with moisture. Suction disks on the back secure and elevate the mat above the surface of the ground making it less likely to slip if the floor is flooded, where conventional mat designs would be at a much higher risk of slippage. Beveled mat edges help to further reduce the risk of slipping and falling. The mats are soft lightweight, grease resistant, and easy to clean.

Crossfield Products
Crossfield Products' Dex-O-Tex Tek-Crete flooring provides exceptional resistance to chemical corrosion and thermal shock under punishing industrial plant conditions. The urethane concrete flooring was developed to be installed in areas where other flooring systems failed. It is much easier to apply, and is now available in a wide range of colors. Tek-Crete is a tri-component material made of polyurethane resin, a curing agent, and blended silica aggregates. Designed for installation over new or existing concrete, Tek-Crete flooring cures in just hours, allowing installation with no significant loss of facility usage. Dex-O-Tex Tek-Crete is used in beverage processing plants, chemical processing facilities, soup kitchens and other industrial buildings where corrosive or high-temperature liquids require a very rugged, durable floor. Tek-Crete resists solvents, organic and inorganic acids, salts, alkalis and other chemicals, and resists softening or damage from temperatures up to 110ºC (230ºF). In addition, Tek-Crete creates a non-slip surface, wet or dry. Tek-Crete is mixed at the time of installation and applied by trowel in a single coat to a thickness of 1/4" - 3/8" depending on specifications. This rugged flooring dries to a textured surface that is slip-retardant under most wet conditions. There is no topcoat to wear off - when floor is scraped or abraded, it doesn't show. Also, its malleable-when hit with a ball-peen hammer, it doesn't shatter, it only dents.

Tek-Crete is available in different applications, including a troweled horizontal flooring applied in one coat to a thickness of 1/4" - 3/8"; a vertical base formulation, and a self-leveling floor applied in two coats to a thickness of 3/16" or 1/4".

Chemetall Oakite
New Oakite FiSan Quat Treat is a phosphate-free, quaternary ammonium chloride-based flood treatment product especially designed to extend protection in production areas between sanitary clean-ups. Granular for enhanced slip-resistant footing, color-coded Oakite FiSan Quat Treat is easy to apply. It is broadcast in thin layers on food plant flooring, either manually or through the use of a drop spreader. Because Oakite FiSan Quat Treat is phosphate-free, it helps sweeten drains by reducing odors when floors are rinsed off at the end of shifts. If flooring is cleaned or rinsed during processing, reapplication of a thin layer of the product is advised.
