BASF Construction Chemicals has been awarded the exclusive GCC sales rights, excluding Kuwait, for the BioClad antimicrobial PVC wall cladding systems.
The cladding comprises of BioCote antimicrobial silver-ion technology that is said to kill bacteria by 99.9% and is effective against E.Coli, MRSA and influenza, allowing BioClad products to create a fully hygienic environment.
This provides full depth, virtually seamless (joints are securely welded) antimicrobial protection, guaranteed for the lifetime of the PVC sheet.
BioClad’s BioArmis antimicrobial wall protection sheets will also be stocked, alongside a full range of accessories including high-impact resistant corner guards, two component low VOC polyurethane adhesives and edge trims.
The BioClad systems are extensively tested and approved by health and food manufacturing authorities around the globe including the UK NHS, HACCP, USDA and FDA.
The addition of the BioClad range will complement BASF’s range of Ucrete and MasterTop resin flooring systems, that’s targeted towards the food and beverage manufacturing, catering, pharmaceutical, healthcare and other critical industries.
“The addition of this high-quality, technical solution will bring many benefits to our customers, and complements our existing range of materials” says Brian Williams, marketing manager, Middle East.
