Flowcrete Asia’s Flowfresh range contains an antimicrobial agent that is homogenously distributed throughout the system to enhance on-site hygiene levels by actively targeting bacteria in contact with the floor.
Developed in partnership with Polygiene®, Flowfresh represents a new generation of antimicrobial flooring. The silver-ion based additive within the system is able to inhibit the growth of bacteria on the surface of the floor by up to 99.9%.
Natural silver is renowned for its ability to protect against bacteria, making it an environmentally friendly alternative to chemically manufactured antimicrobials. Flowcrete incorporates it into the floor in such a way that the bactericidal technology remains active for the lifetime of the coating – even when damaged or worn – unlike traditional surface treatments.
Flowfresh has also been proven to meet the ISO 22196 standard, which measures a surface’s antibacterial effectiveness on plastics and other non-porous surfaces. The polyurethane system underwent rigorous testing to show that it complied with this internationally recognised benchmark.
