Star Food Grade Enamel: durable and eco-friendly
Star Food Grade Enamel paint is an eco-friendly coating designed for use where resistance to constant humidity and repeated scrubbing with detergents is desired. This coating also helps prevent mould and mildew growth in the dried paint film. What makes this paint so unique is that it can be used to solve many problems that come with painting in a number of different types of areas and environments.
So what is Star Food Grade Enamel?
Food grade coatings are mostly used in food and drink processing plants, wholesale warehouses and retail food storage facilities, as the name would suggest. Food grade paints are not only used for specific types of food or drink – they can be used for all types and for a variety of reasons. Not only will they help to keep all surfaces, including floors, non-slip, but are also waterproof, hygienic, easy to clean and incredibly durable.
Why is Star Food Grade Enamel a good option?
Star Food Grade Enamel paint is also extremely effective in preventing mould, mildew and bacterial build up, which is of the utmost importance in food storage areas. However, this also means food grade paint may be used in other areas where mould, bacteria and mildew could thrive and become an issue. Coating locker and shower rooms with this paint also helps prevent mould and mildew build up. Food grade paint can also be applied to wood, metal and concrete floors and walls, making it a great choice for any environment which needs to be regularly cleaned.
Another great benefit of food grade enamel is its high resistance to both hot and cold temperatures. It can withstand hot water, steam and oil splatters, as well as extreme cold, e.g. inside of a fridge or freezer. Its non-stick nature ensures that any spills or splatters from food preparation can be easily cleaned up and no food remains on the paint that would cause mould.
The paint is also highly resistant to abrasion, meaning that it can be used in an environment that is prone to constant scrubbing and cleaning. This also makes it extremely wear resistant, so it can be used on floors which have high levels of traffic. Not only will it not wear but it will also maintain its attractive high shine.
How do you apply it?
When applying Star Food Grade Enamel paint, always make sure the surface is in a good condition for painting. Remove any non-adherent coatings, dust thoroughly and clean it before painting. It’s always best to use a primer to ensure long-lasting quality.
Where can I use it?
This product is ideal for food processing plants, commercial kitchens and warehouses, which store food products. It can also be used in breweries and wineries where the same levels of hygiene are expected. As mentioned previously though, it’s not just food preparation and storage areas that can benefit from food grade paint; showers and locker rooms are another perfect location to use it, as well as water treatment plants (both waste and fresh), tanneries and laundries.
