BACTERIA-FREE CONCRETE PROTECTION FOR HEINZ-FOODSTAR CONDIMENT PRODUCTION PLANT IN SHANGHAI

 

With the growing concern on food safety in China, both domestic and foreign food companies are facing more stringent hygiene requirement on food processing and production. Our client in Shanghai, Heinz-Foodstar, took a proactive measure to safeguard their infrastructure and product from mould contamination by applying Deflecta concrete protection to their new expanded facility.

 

 

Located in Shanghai’s Jinshan Industrial Zone, Heinz-Foodstar condiments plant is an integrated production base with a total area of 87,000 square meters. And the annual production is expected to reach 10 million tons when the factory operates at full capacity.

 

Our client was actively seeking a long standing finishing for wall and ceiling inside the wet areas, such as fermentation room, koji room and steam room. Not only the finishing has to provide a hygienic surface to prevent bacteria build-up, but can withstand acid and salt, moisture and thermal shock.

Deflecta concrete protection solution was recommended as it has been formulated to provide an antimicrobial finishing that comply with food industry regulations for an extended period of time despite the plant’s inherently challenging conditions. To prove its effectiveness, our team conducted a mock application and put the solution to test under the actual operating conditions. The client was impressed with the performance of Deflecta Antimicrobial and Multi Sealer, in terms of mould and bacteria control, as well as acid and salt resistant.

 

Deflecta’s seamless finish helps prevent additives and food by-products from leaching into the underlying concrete substrate.

 

Deflecta Antimicrobial preserves a hygienic condition by killing 99.99% of bacteria on the concrete. It is a non-toxic formulation without any VOC emission and it complies with HACCP for use in food preparation areas. Apply together with Deflecta Multi Sealer, the solution further prevents the moisture ingress and strengthens the wall adhesion, as well as prevents cracking and flaking of putty layer.

 

 

Deflecta is active up to a depth of 10cm into the concrete matrix to suppress the mould and bacteria growth in long run.
The entire Deflecta concrete treatment not only sanitizes the production environment and improves the durability of the infrastructure, but also providing a fast turnaround and minimal disruption to production which is ideal for use in food processing and manufacturing facilities.
