  6. 6. What are the top factors to consider when specifying a new flooring material? @dr_flowcrete www.flowcreteasia.com
  7. 7. Excessive concentrations of harmful airborne particles can accelerate corrosion or degradation of incorrectly specified flooring 1 @dr_flowcrete www.flowcreteasia.com
  8. 8. The cracks, crevices and joints typically associated with tiled systems are popular places for microbes, dirt and dust to gather calling for a seamless system to negate any risks of contamination 2 @dr_flowcrete www.flowcreteasia.com
  9. 9. Powder production areas could be damaged by even the smallest of static charges making specialist systems a must to dissipate electrostatic charges 3 @dr_flowcrete www.flowcreteasia.com
  10. 10. Pharmaceutical facilities can be subject to thermal shock conditions and temperature fluctuations calling for durable, yet resilient flooring systems 4 @dr_flowcrete www.flowcreteasia.com
  11. 11. Strict cleaning and maintenance regimes require tough, stain resistant and high-gloss, dust-free finishes 5 @dr_flowcrete www.flowcreteasia.com

  15. 15. Moisture vapour transmission through the concrete slab can lead to blistering and de-bonding of the finished surface - substrates must be treated where necessary to allow the surface to breathe 9 @dr_flowcrete www.flowcreteasia.com
