Thermal shock can cause many types of floors to fail due to softening and erosion or through delamination. It occurs wherever there is a very rapid change of temperature. This is most frequently encountered where there is spillage or discharge of high temperature liquids onto the floor, for example under frying lines or during the part cooking and quenching of vegetables. Ucrete flooring solutions are ideally suited for such environments, withstanding regular and routine discharges of boiling water. Depending on specification, Ucrete flooring is thermal shock resistant from -40 °C up to +130 °C.
