HYGIENIC COATINGS

TECHNOLOGY WITH HISTORY

The Sikagard® hygienic coatings for walls and ceilings have been specifically designed to meet both functional and aesthetic needs for facilities where the highest standards of hygiene are required. Frequently used in facilities where health and safety is of utmost importance, such as healthcare, pharmaceutical and food manufacturing facilities the Sikagard® hygienic coatings range meet all relevant health and safety standards and regulations and will help ensure that a building’s internal environment can be kept to the highest possible standards of hygiene.

DURABILITY & MAINTENANCE CYCLE

In demanding hygiene environments like operating theatres, standard paints are no match for this range of specifically developed hygienic coatings. Offering far more than traditional paints, Sikagard® hygiene coatings are designed to provide exceptional durability as well as an enhanced resistance to cracking, splitting and flaking.

This market leading durability and strength coupled with the fast drying properties of the products, which allow two coats to be applied within 24 hours, dramatically reduces downtime and extends the maintenance cycle, minimizing disruption and the related materials, labor and downtime costs.

For areas that may require enhanced impact resistance the Sikagard® hygiene coatings can be reinforced with Sika® Reemat glass fiber matting. Available in two grades – Sika® Reemat Lite and Sika® Reemat Premium – the mat is easily incorporated into the Sikagard® systems which once cured provide a high performance, seamless finish that is both highly durable and aesthetically pleasing.
