Hygienic PVC Cladding Sheet

A wall and ceiling cladding is suitable for use in hygienically demanding non food contact applications.

The antibacterial active ingredient in hygienic cladding sheet provides dual biostatic and biocidal action which stops bacterial growth and kills the bacteria on the sheet.

Unique construction materials are a means of satisfying the ever increasing regulatory requirements placed on hygiene standards in food processing areas, hospitals, medical facilities, commercial kitchens, abattoirs etc. This material inhibits the spread of bacteria and is suitable for use in hygienically demanding applications which require its antimicrobial action.

The active ingredient is a silver glass matrix which releases silver ions throughout the sheet for a consistently effective action against gram positive and gram negative bacteria. As the matrix is evenly distributed throughout the sheet, the effectiveness of the material is maintained, even if the surface becomes worn or scratched.

It can be easily cleaned with typical non-abrasive cleaning products and disinfectants and satisfies requirements on fire performance.
