Technology with History

Formerly of Liquid Plastics 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.

Simple and Effective

The Sikagard® 400 range represents one of the simplest and most effective methods of achieving a high performing surface, that is easy to clean, hard-wearing and free from joints, seams and other features that provide a hiding place for dirt and bacteria.This, coupled with the coatings organic in-film preservative, makes it the ideal solution for areas where good hygiene is paramount.

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, minimising disruption and the related materials, labour and downtime costs.

Impact Resistance

For areas that may require enhanced impact resistance the Sikagard® hygiene coatings can be reinforced with Sika® Reemat glass fibre 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.
