Hygiene Coatings for a safer environment

Hygiene is very important to ensure safety and health. Especially in the kitchen, where the contact with germs and food has to be avoided at all costs. Aside from that all kinds of nasty things such as mold and other bacteria can grow on walls. Acquiring a hygiene coating will prevent bacteria and mold from developing. Which ensures that safety regulations are met and that the people’s health will not be negatively affected.

Hygiene coatings are quick and easy to clean. But above all, the coating complies to food safety regulations.

The 5 requirements of hygiene coatings for walls

Hygiene wall coatings have to meet the following requirements:

  1. immune to forming dirt
  2. non-absorbent
  3. Washable
  4. Non toxic
  5. Smooth surface

Hygiene Coating for floors

No food, not even when it is packaged, may touch the floor. Floors have to be protected against mold and dirt. Also for floor coatings there are several requirements. The requirements differ slightly from wall coatings since there is more traffic on floors meaning they have to be cleaned more:

  1. Easy to clean
  2. Chemical resistant
  3. Antibacterial
  4. Safe

Acquiring an hygiene floor coating isn’t the only regulation that must be complied. Alternative procedures that must be taken into account are allowing the water to flow into the drains and making sure the junction between the walls and the floors is covered so that the usually difficult to clean spots are easy to clean as well.


3 Alternative procedures


Hygienic coatings are often used on medical and dental tools

Also the tanks and pipes that come in contact with food have to be coated with a hygiene coating. Especially in the dairy and breweries sector. Pipes, vessels and tanks are places where the forming of mold and other bacteria is strictly forbidden. So coating these will ensure food safety for consumers.

Hygienic coatings aren’t just for the food and beverage industry. Also in hospitals and the agriculture, medical and electronic sectors safety regulations have to be met.
