Hello,

 

Is hardiflex allowed to use for pulverizing area? We produced coconut flour.

 

Thanks

This depends on where it is going to be located & the use....

 

BRC 4.4 states "the fabrication of the site, buildings & facilities shall be suitable for the intended purpose"  (I don't know what FSSC says but I would think there is an equivalent clause).

 

I would advise you seek the MSDS from the supplier & consult your health & safety site contact to allow you to make the decision.

This product contains crystalline silica and is should not be used in a food facility.

 

The boards can fume off and inhalation can also be an issue based on prolonged exposure.
