pu concrete for coffee roastery
Matthew Algie, Glasgow

the challenge

A high performance PU concrete flooring system was required to deliver a hygienic, durable, easy-to-clean flooring solution for a Glasgow-based coffee roastery.

meet the client

Matthew Algie, established in 1864, began life selling its own blend of tea to wholesale customers across Glasgow, before beginning coffee production after the second world war.

Today, the Scottish company supplies its famous coffee blends as well as other peripheral goods and equipment to cafés, restaurants and hotels throughout the UK and beyond.

the project

Matthew Algie’s award-winning Glasgow roastery is in the heart of the city and close to the banks of the River Clyde.

The slab in the facility’s production facility was in need of some attention, requiring mechanical preparation and exposed repairs before being overcoated.

Vebro’s solution

vebrocrete MF was chosen to transform the 300 m2 area. 

vebrocrete MF is a HACCP International certified medium duty, easily-applied, polyurethane concrete screed offering excellent chemical and wear resistance.

vebrocrete MF is best suited to use in dry and semi-wet food processing and preparation areas subject to moderate temperature swings, chemical spillage and medium duty traffic.

The system, which is resistant to temperatures up to 70ºC, also provides excellent cleanability and features a seamless hygienic finish.

The food-safe, solvent-free, odourless, non-tainting and non-dusting system complies with HACCP food safety management guidelines.
