  Tufchem Tiling Systems
Alphatherm Incorporated With a Heritage extending over 75 years starting with the Pennwalt Corporation, ERGON Corrosion Engineering Department has provided innovative solutions for the complex industrial linings needs of the Food, Pharmaceutical, and Chemical Process Industries. Corrosion Engineering offers a range of corrosion resistant and antimicrobial systems that protect your investment and mitigate risk in the most challenging applications.
Alphatherm Incorporated Carbon Brick ERGON Tiling Systems (TTS) are an evolution of traditional direct bond brick and paver systems. TTS are designed to address the limitations of the traditional systems and provide exceptional physical performance, safety, and visual aesthetics all at a cost less than traditional systems.
  ERGON Tiling Systems (TTS) use fully vitrified pieces that are nonabsorbent and non-porous. All TTS slip resistant surface textures are integrally formed into the surface prior to vitrified firing. Inherently, TTS materials do not promote the growth of bacteria or fungus and serve as a barrier against microbial incursion that could be transmitted from your processing floor to other, harder to track, areas of your facility’s operation. See TTS R11 surface texture at the upper right.

TTS Anti-Slip StandardERGON Tiling Systems range in thickness from 18 mm (3/4”) to 50 mm (2”), and are installed in a variety of methods depending upon the requirements and budget of the specific project. TTS utilize a variety of resin based materials such as epoxy, furan, novolac and vinyl ester, to match the chemical resistance requirements of particular applications. Electro-static dissipating and conductive systems are also available. Where it is critical to ensure a moisture tight floor, ERGON Corrosion Engineering offers a full line of reliable membrane systems for any wet service or elevated floor applications. Available surfaces are shown in the lower-right photo.
