Beer doesn't only enjoy great popularity in this part of the world. Before the German purity law from 1516 brewers used what tasted best for their beer and what was available. Until a decision by the European Court of Justice in 1987, no beer was allowed to be sold in Germany that wasn't brewed according to the purity law. Since then, foreign brewers may import their beer to Germany - with all additives and preservatives allowed in the respective countries. Absolute hygiene and cleanness are thus still unalterble for brewing of beer. The demands for industrial floors in breweries rises constantly. High surface loads in the area of bottle cleaning machines, filters or fillers, rotational forces, but also highest chemical, thermal, and mechanical loads must be taken. At the same time, the floor should be easy to clean, slip-proof and optically appealing.
