Flowcrete Makes Waves at BMR Exports’ Processing Plant
30 Oct 2014
Flowcrete India supplied a wide range of resin flooring solutions for BMR Export’s Nellore based processing plant.
As one of the leading seafood exporters in India, BMR group became the first shrimp processing company to export head-on vannamei shrimps to European countries in 2004, a powerful indicator of the acceptance of the group’s rigorous quality standards and drive to serve the most demanding buyers.
Despite delays to the project due to problems in the wider construction industry, Flowcrete’s team of licensed applicators worked tirelessly to complete the installation on time.
The whole process lasted just 15 days for the installation of flooring, wall coating, coving and drainage lining and the facility was opened as per the original schedule, much to the delight of the client.
Vivekanandan Margasahayam, Managing Director of Flowcrete India, said: “It has been a real honour to work with such a prestigious client as BMR Exports.
“Great credit must go to our licensed contractors for achieving a high-quality finish and completing the project on time despite numerous constraints and setbacks which were beyond their control.
“Ultimately, the client was delighted with the end result and we look forward to maintaining an excellent relationship with BMR Group long into the future.”
Numerous Flowcrete products were used on the project including 1700m2 of the chemical resistant system Flowfresh MF in the processing area. The polyurethane resin flooring system boasts a smooth matt coloured finish and incorporates Polygiene® - a performance based antimicrobial additive, which inhibits the growth of bacteria, fungi, moulds and mildew.
3800m2 of Flowseal UV was applied in both the pre-processing and processing areas. The two component polyurethane coating was selected as the chosen floor finish on account of its stylish high gloss sheen, chemical resistance and excellent abrasion resistance.
In the plant’s anteroom 180m2 of the heavy duty, chemical resistant, antimicrobial polyurethane resin floor screed Flowfresh RT was installed. The product provided a durable, textured coloured floor finish for the client and also contains the antimicrobial agent Polygiene®, making it ultra hygienic too.
A total of 280m2 of the chemical resistant antimicrobial treated polyurethane coving and wall rendering mortar, Flowfresh WR was used on the processing area's drainage system. Part of the resin-flooring company’s speciality range, the product was chosen to enhance the aesthetics of the processing plant with its attractive, fine textured finish coupled with a decorative speckled effect on the surface.
Finally, 700 m2 of Flowtex F1, a three component pack, solvent free, epoxy resin based coving mortar was added to the plant’s skirtings.
