Clean interior hygiene: Effective surface coatings

The worldwide corona pandemic and the experience gained with it will also have an impact on hygiene standards in hospitals and nursing homes in the future. Wherever sick people or people in need of care are in very confined spaces, the problem of bacteria and germ formation is great - so it is more important than ever to minimise the risk of infection and protect people's health. Especially surfaces of inventory, wall surfaces, doors and also tiles offer a large area of attack for unwanted contamination. Here, effective and sustainable surface protection ensures numerous advantages.

Application-oriented surface coating in hygienic areas

The healthcare concept of DÖRKEN Coatings offers coating solutions for applications with high hygienic requirements and for heavily frequented rooms. The portfolio includes products that in some cases even exceed hygiene standards and legal requirements.

The basic rule is: The optimal coating solution for ceilings, walls and surfaces in hygienic areas depends on the area of application and the corresponding usage requirements. Particularly in sensitive rooms such as operating theatres, laboratories, clean rooms or even patient rooms, it is important to choose the optimum wall and ceiling paint for solutions that are free of pollutants or preservatives and have tested resistance to bacteria, viruses, germs and mould. For wall protection in heavily frequented areas with a lot of public traffic - including reception areas, corridors, waiting and recreation rooms - durable wall paints and particularly scratch-resistant and hard-wearing protective coatings are required. Easy cleanability is also an important criterion here. Special factors must also be taken into account in damp rooms such as bathrooms. For example, the paint used must ensure the exchange of moisture between the wall surface and the room air in order to prevent mould growth. In food-processing areas such as dining rooms and canteen kitchens, the following applies: Only paints with components that are not harmful to health are permitted.

Effective protection against viruses, bacteria and mould: LUCITE® MultiResist PRO

The innovative wall and ceiling paint LUCITE® MultiResist Pro protects against mould and mildew without allergenic and environmentally hazardous substances and is resistant to bacteria and germs. The coating has been proven to be resistant to MRSA hospital germs in accordance with JIS Z 2801:2012, thus minimising the risk of wall surface contamination. LUCITE® MultiResist Pro is therefore particularly suitable for use in rooms with high hygiene requirements - at the same time, the product also has approval as a wall coating in food processing areas.
