    The AcryliCon® (Ireland) Industrial Flooring Systems offer an ideal solution for your floors in the food processing industry, food service and other demanding environments.

    In areas where cleanliness matters Acrylicon industrial flooring systems are the cleanest floors you can currently specify. And now, with the addition of Microban technology the floor will remain cleaner between cleanings 24/7 for the life of the floor.

    Microban antimicrobial product protection is effective in inhibiting the growth of microbes, such as bacteria and mould that can cause stains, odours and deterioration of the floor.

    The active ingredients in Microban protection help to neutralize the ability of microbes to function, grow and reproduce.

    Free from heavy metals and chlorine Microban technology works in harmony with your floor and working environment. Microban protection is built-in during the manufacturing process making it a durable part of the product inside and at the surface. When microbes come in contact with the product surface, Microban protection penetrates the cell wall of the microorganism and disrupts cell functions making the microorganism unable to function, grow and reproduce.

    The active ingredient in Microban is Triclosan a product that has been used in toiletries and cosmetics such as toothpaste and soaps for over 30 years. Further it has full EEC and FDA food contact approval.

    In our floors the Triclosan is incorporated into the product make up during manufacture and so is evenly distributed throughout the system. This built in process means the antimicrobial technology is locked into the floor and by a process similar to osmosis moves intermolecular to always provide active ingredient at the surface of our floor. This does not in anyway affect the technical properties of our standard floor, instead it adds the benefit of antimicrobial efficacy for the natural lifetime of the floor.

    Microban will not sanitize your plant and an effective cleaning regime is still required, however, it will help reduce the odour and stain causing bacteria, mould and mildew

    Acrylicon flooring systems with Microban protection are fully certified on production and installation and will continue to be tested for efficacy during its life. This is carried out annually by taking a core test, which is sent to an independent lab to be tested. In the core’s place a dated stainless steel ingot is placed to show the floor has been tested.
