BEFORE INSTALLING YOUR FREEZER FLOORING SYSTEM
Besides having the appropriate Polyurethane Flooring System being installed by a Professional Flooring Contractor, it is equally important in Recommissioning your Freezer the correct way.
Another important factor to consider before installing your Polyurethane Floor System, is the temperature that you will be operating your Freezer at, as this will determine how thick the Polyurethane Floor System will need to be applied.
Firstly, the Polyurethane Floor System should be allowed to fully cure. This will be dependent on the Ambient and Substrate Temperatures, and Air Ventilation.
The higher all of these factors are, the quicker the Polyurethane Floor System will cure.
|Substrate Temp||Foot Traffic||Light Traffic||Full Cure|
|250 C||~ 10 Hours||~ 24 Hours||~ 7 Days|
|350 C||~ 8 Hours||~18 Hours||~ 5 Days|
All cure times mentioned are approximated and will be affected by changing Ambient and Substrate Temperatures, Relative Humidity and Air Ventillation.
Once the Polyurethane Floor System has fully cured, the lowering of the Temperature can begin.
The lowering of the Temperature should not be any more than 3-50C per day.
In colder conditions, heaters can be used to help accelerate the curing time, and Industrial Fans can be used to promote Air Circulation, which is extremely important.
Following these guidelines will ensure that you achieve optimum performance and longevity from your Polyurethane Floor System.
