Coffee & Tea Facility Epoxy Floor Coating Case Study
Food Grade Epoxy Floor Repair Overview
Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee Inc., a coffee roasting facility and distribution center in Fort Worth, Texas, was looking to restore the appearance of their pedestrian walkway after forklifts had damaged the epoxy coating. The existing floor had also begun to show signs of wear.
Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee Inc. contacted Advanced Painting Service for a solution to make their floor look new again.
Advanced Painting Service repaired the scars in the existing epoxy floor and recoated the pedestrian walkway with Armorseal Rexthane 1 from Sherwin Williams, which is known for its durability and resistance to impact damage. They also installed new safety markings on the floor.
