Flowcrete Announces Qualification at Pak Pharma and Healthcare Expo 2017
22 May 2017
This May, Flowcrete Asia joined approved applicators Morgan Technologies, to attend the Pak Pharma and Healthcare Expo in Lahore, Pakistan. The exhibition provided a rare opportunity for both local and international manufacturers, as well as suppliers of equipment and services to meet with customers in order to share industry knowledge.
During the show, Flowcrete Asia’s Marketing Manager, Will Facer, presented an informative flooring seminar entitled ‘How to Achieve Pharmaceutical Flooring Perfection with Flowcrete’, which highlighted Flowcrete Asia’s newly awarded CSM qualifications for Flowshield SL and Flowseal EPW Wall.
The presentation also outlined several factors to consider when specifying resin flooring, highlighting that floor solutions should not be considered a ‘one size fits all’ product – a mistake that is commonly seen in the industrial sector.
Both Flowshield SL, a colourful, high-gloss, self levelling epoxy floor coating and Flowseal EPW, a pigmented, hygienic, epoxy based wall sealer, have met the requirements of a number of Cleanroom Standards set out by the IPA, in accordance with the CSM (Cleanroom Suitable Materials) test parameters.
CSM is an industry alliance initiated by the Fraunhofer IPA institute in 2003, in order to test methods based on international standards. They are dedicated to assessing and validating the cleanroom suitability of anything that is used within the design or is entering a cleanroom environment. Their qualification defines the suitability of equipment or material against a specific Cleanroom Class, based on emission of airborne particles, biological resistance and outgassing behaviour, amongst other factors.
As manufacturing under cleanroom conditions is essential for a growing number of industries in order to safeguard the process operation and quality of components, the CSM status is a critical qualification for decision-makers selecting materials and equipment in front-end semiconductor manufacturing and pharmaceutical cleanrooms.
In all, delegates were pleased to learn more about the industry and discover that when choosing the correct floor solution facility owners could save money over time, due to minimal repair costs and ease of cleaning.
