PROBLEM: ConAgra Foods was repainting their food and beverage facility floor once a month. The product they were using was not durable enough for the tough environment. Heavy forklift traffic and daily washings were making the coating fade and chip. The Rust-Oleum sales representative and MRO distributor met with the facility director and they decided on a solution - the Rust-Oleum 9100 System DTM Epoxy Mastic.
SOLUTION: After training the in-house maintenance crew, the 9100 System was applied. Known for its self priming characteristics, only one coat of 9100 System DTM Epoxy Mastic was needed on the floor compared to multiple coats of the product previously used. The 9100 System is also known for its superior long-term solvent, chemical and abrasion resistance, perfect for the ConAgra facility. After six months, the facility floor has not been repainted and it looks incredible. ConAgra valued their labor and material cost savings at over $50,000 for the six months, since they did not have to repaint. ConAgra has also decided to use the cost savings strategies at their other manufacturing plants.
