PPC01/Anti-Microbial (Anti-Mould) Anti-Microbial Abrasion & Chemical Coating
PPC01/Anti-Microbial is a UV Cured Anti-Microbial coating that provides both excellent chemical and abrasion resistance. This is available in both our Gloss and Matt Finishes.
PPC01/Anti-Microbial is applied by spray to our Acrylic. It is based on a Urethane Acrylate Monomer and provides excellent chemical resistance as well as protection from ‘yellowing’ from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
The product has also been tested as an Anti-Mould coating using test method ASM G21-09 and was proven to prevent mould forming, even after 28 days from inoculation.
This product is sold in a Gloss or Matt finish. It has been tested against many pathogens and has proven to be over 99% effective against E-Coli, MRSA, Salmonella, Aspergillus niger and Campylobacter Jenjuni.
Using test method ASDM D3359 DN53 15 the coating adhesion was 100% stable, including after a 72 Hour soak.
We tested the hardness of the coating using two test methods.
ISO test method 2812-4 at 24 hours.
There has also been substantial testing of many different agents carried out by many of our customers, including military chemical agents, all with positive results. However, we would always recommend you undertake specific testing of the chemical or compound in question.
3mm Natural Crystal Finish
3mm Uncoated (natural crystal 3mm) - A thinner 3mm thick alternative to our 5mm thick panels. These are much more flexible than our 5mm panels, making them perfect for slight curves or situations where ultra-light applications are needed. These do not have scratch, mould and chemical resistant properties.
5mm Natural Crystal Finish
5mm Uncoated (natural crystal) - Visually indistinguishable from our Premium Hard-coated panels. The only difference is that these panels do not have the scratch, mould and chemical resistant properties.
5mm Premium Hard Coated Gloss Finish
5mm Hard-coated acrylic (premium gloss) - Your scratch resistant hard-coated panels also have mould and detergent resistant properties; making them the most hygienic and safe way to protect your kitchen, bathroom or any other room or purpose. They are light, while remaining very hard wearing.
6mm Toughened Glass
Highly scratch resistant, toughened glass. Our glass is low-Iron…meaning that it is as crystal clear as possible. This stops the green tint that you see on most glass, meaning the colour will be unaltered and seen as it was intended. Tough and heavyweight items. Bespoke, unique, classy look. Our glass is heat resistant so can be used behind direct heat sources. You can have any colour or design…just as all of our acrylics.
