What are Thermal Shock/Cycling-Resistant Floors?

Hot, cold and hot again. Floors that are designed to stand up to extreme temperatures and extreme changes in temperature are thermal shock and thermal cycling-resistant. Floors are often exposed to these extreme conditions due to processing, equipment, and cleaning.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Preventing cracking of the floor

  • Maintaining floor aesthetics
