Is Epoxy Food Safe?

If you are looking for a flooring material that will work in a food manufacturing plant, kitchen or other food service area, you may be wondering which of these are food safe. There are a number of floor coating products on the market–all capable of being food safe–but the difference lies with the chemical composition each manufacturer uses.

Is Epoxy Food Safe?

Epoxy flooring is used a lot when it comes to food manufacturing and service. Many types of epoxy flooring and other forms of floor coating systems have been approved by the FDA and USDA for use around food.

High-solid floor coatings are great when it comes to withstanding acids and alkalis and can stand up to abrasive cleaning, making them great for areas where food is being handled.

The trick here is choosing the right epoxy or other floor coating product as not all  are food safe. Some epoxy products have high VOC compositions that emit gases and odors that do not mix well with food or areas where food is being made.

Choosing the wrong product could be a regulatory nightmare and expensive mistake when it comes to food manufacturing and handling.
