Introducing the Wallglaze range
The use of such virulent cleaning chemicals requires the specification of resilient and easy to clean wall, floor and ceiling finishes that can withstand the intensive cleaning and decontamination processes.
C/S Wallglaze Containment Coatings have been specifically designed for the internal walls and ceilings of hygiene and contaminant sensitive environments. The Wallglaze range offers various levels of chemical resistance, ranging from Wallsheen’s resistance to mild alkalines, right up to Armourglaze’s resistance to strong acids, formaldehyde, solvents and peroxides used in fumigation and radioactive decontamination.
Being an elastomeric system, the Wallglaze range can absorb impact without cracking or flaking. For increased abrasion and impact resistance, and to deal with differential laboratory air pressures and temperatures, fibreglass reinforcement options are also available across the Wallglaze product range.
The Wallglaze range also features non-leaching anti-microbial agents, which include bactericides and fungicides in every coat of the system. Third party tests have verified that Wallglaze offers a complete defence against most species of mould, bacteria and yeasts including MRSA, Salmonella, E-coli, and many others. Due to the non-leaching properties of these anti-microbial agents, Wallglaze’s ability to prevent microbial growth does not diminish with intensive cleaning.
Wallglaze remains fully active against micro-organisms in excess of 15 years and has been shown to last 10 years, with a straightforward re-coating being all that is required to fully restore protection after this long lifespan.
