SABIC’S LEXAN™ CLINIWALL™ AC6200 SHEET PROVIDES ANTI-BACTERIAL, HYGIENIC AND TOUCHABLE WALL CLADDING SOLUTIONS FOR HOSPITALS AND PUBLIC FACILITIES
In answer to the rising need for infection prevention and sanitation control across the world, SABIC is launching LEXAN™ CLINIWALL™ AC6200 Sheet, its new non-chlorinated and non-brominated opaque sheet featuring a pioneering thermoplastics material with anti-bacterial properties in order to provide a hygienic, sanitary solution for interior surfaces to several industries around the world.
“It is important now more than ever for public, industrial and healthcare facilities to be equipped with products that include anti-bacterial properties to ensure the safety of their staff, patients, customers and anyone who may walk through their doors,” says Peter van den Bleek, Product Manager for SABIC. “The specific anti-bacterial (MRSA and E. Coli) additive, incorporated during the production process, makes our newest LEXAN™ CLINIWALL™ sheet a breakthrough material.”
Typical cladding applications 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.
When independently tested over a 24-hour period at 35 degrees Celsius, LEXAN™ CLINIWALL™ AC6200 Sheet with anti-bacterial shield showed greater than 99.99% reduction in Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) and 99.999% reduction in E. Coli on the surface of the material.
“The anti-bacterial material provides a layer of protection to interior wall cladding against the spread and multiplication of potential bacteria (MRSA and E. Coli), which makes it an excellent choice for patient care and other hygiene-sensitive clinical operations,” Peter says.
LEXAN™ CLINIWALL™ AC6200 Sheet is also a non-chlorinated, non-brominated, and fire resistant opaque material which delivers high impact and wear resistance, and offers excellent stain, blood and urine resistance, as well as chemical resistance to popular cleaning agents like disinfectant Isopropanol (rubbing alcohol), helping to save significantly on maintenance costs.
