This versatility is thanks to Flowcrete Americas’ comprehensive product offering, which includes ultra-hygienic cementitious urethane floors, fast curing MMA finishes and highly decorative epoxy surfaces. Several product lines are due to be expanded with even more systems shortly, including the Deckshield range of car park deck coatings, the Flowchem corrosion protection collection and the anti-static flooring line.
