CLEANsafe Coatings

In 2011, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) implemented the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) ensuring U.S. food supply safety by shifting from response of contamination to prevention. Kingspan initiated CLEANsafe, an industry first, engineered to comply with the FSMA – approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), FDA, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

CLEANsafe Coating System

Kingspan CLEANsafe coatings, each designed specifically for temperature controlled environments, have particular properties suited to different environments. We offer and aid in choosing the right coatings to meet the appropriate classification of corrosive environment and type of activities.

CLEANsafe insulated panels and doors - which are all washable surfaces - provide a sealed monolithic structure for maintaining hygiene safe requirements when exposed to secondary food contact and corrosive cleaning agents. The tight fitting panel joints offer superior airtightness, preventing thermal bridging and condensation. The corrosive factors of an internal environment are determined by the presence of corrosive chemicals and / or micro-organisms in the internal atmosphere, relative humidity, as well as by the frequency of cleaning, aggressiveness of the cleaners, degreasers, sanitizers, and method of cleaning.
