MATERIALS FOR SPEED-BUILDING HOSPITALS

SABIC recently launched a non-chlorinated and non-brominated opaque sheet, LEXAN™ CLINIWALL™ AC620. The new solution is designed to provide a hygienic, sanitary solution for interior surfaces for industries that need greater infection prevention and sanitation control. The launch comes as the rising need for infection prevention and sanitation control across the world continues to increase. SABIC’s full integration across the value chain allows the company to develop robust solutions that help meet customers’ needs. Typical industries for the solution include hospitals, clinics, homes for the elderly, primary care centers, sterile rooms, laboratories, pharmaceutical factories, industrial kitchens, storage rooms and refrigeration facilities, schools, restrooms, airports, bus stops, train stations and sports centers.READ MORE
