Need Flooring in the Pharmaceutical Industry?
At Sika, we understand the importance of issues such as ease of maintenance, chemical resistance, protection against bacteria and clean room standards required for sterile and clean process environments in the pharmaceutical and life science industries. As part of our #SikaClean offer we have a range of products that give you a seamless connection between walls and floors, giving you peace of mind when specifying solutions that need to be durable and sustainable for these sensitive areas of production, thus helping you maintain quality assurances.
In recent years Sika has developed a new generation of advanced flooring, wall coating and joint sealant solutions for cleanroom environments.
Manufacturing under cleanroom conditions is becoming increasingly more widespread and demanding, with particular regard to VOC /AMC emissions (Volatile Organic Compounds / Airborne Molecular Contaminants), particle emissions and biological contamination.
One label contains all the information for clients or specifiers working in the cleanroom industries!
The number of products which have to be produced and processed under cleanroom conditions is constantly growing, from electronics and automotive components to food, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. In many of these industries, cleanroom manufacturing plus a high degree of component cleanliness are now essential to achieve their desired product quality.
Many Sikafloor®, Sikagard® and Sikaflex® systems are the ‘State of the Art’ in cleanroom solutions, specifically developed and certified for cleanroom environments ranging from those in the Semi-conductor and Electronics industries to those in the Life Science industries. Therefore we are the ideal partner to help you select the best solutions for your individual processes and cleanroom requirements and with the unique CSM product qualification.
Most of the Sikafloor®, Sikagard® and Sikaflex® systems are tested and certified for their use in a cleanroom environment.
Furthermore, in depth test reports and proof statements are available for each certified product or system, which contain all of the relevant information regarding the testing parameters and standards. You can also refer to the public database of the Fraunhofer IPA Institute where all of the tested and certified Sika solutions are listed:
