Protective coatings extend resilient floorings’ life
Dr Schutz, a global floor care solutions specialist, offers a clear permanent PU coating applicable to all types of resilient floorcoverings – from vinyl and linoleum to rubber and other hard floors – designed to considerably simplify cleaning and maintenance, reduce staining and the potential for bacterial growth, and generally increase longevity and performance.
The company said: “The demands on flooring in healthcare facilities are particularly tough, as they are both highly frequented, and must be resistant to disinfectants and other chemicals. Other challenges include bacterial growth, potential slip hazards, and static build-up. Our clear PU coating comes in various forms; one major benefit is the elimination of the need for almost continuous routine stripping and polishing. Instead the flooring is coated just once with a Dr Schutz PU sealer.
“The clear finish, which has no impact on aesthetics, creates a hermetically sealed surface which covers over the joints and gaps, dramatically reducing bacterial growth there.”
Dr. Schutz PU sealers are reportedly disinfectant-resistant, slow down the migration of coloured disinfectants, and ‘meet and exceed’ the HSE’s guidelines on slip resistance in the UK.
Dr Schutz also offers permanent PU coatings for antistatic and surface dissipative floors.
