Durable and Impact-Resistant Cleanroom Walls

Today’s cGMP regulations demand that surfaces are smooth and easy to clean and that cleanroom walls are durable, impervious to attack, and impact resistant.

The traditional approach has been to use epoxy paint over drywall. Unfortunately, this can be problematic in addressing modern sanitary and durability issues, as epoxy-painted walls require constant maintenance and repairs.

Interior finishes, such as wall paneling, are under close scrutiny in sterile application areas. Regulations require that wall finishes must be smooth, non-porous, non-shedding, easy to clean, and resistant to chemicals and staining. All cleanroom wall systems must be installed seamlessly to prevent cracks, gaps, and fissures where contaminants can collect.

Frequent activities occur in a cleanroom setting, and operators regularly move carts and equipment around. A coated wall system can chip, flake or crack, causing costly shutdowns.

Takiron© IVY-ONE

Takiron IVY-ONE cPVC wall-cladding system provides users with the cleanest possible environment due to its high-density, non-porous construction, smooth surface finish and natural chemical resistance. The Takiron IVY-ONE system is made from IVY-ONE 573®, a thick durable material with tremendous impact resistance and durability. It won’t flake, chip or crack. Once the panels are heat-welded together, it becomes a seamless configuration. IVY-ONE is manufactured to withstand strong sporicidal cleaners as well as harsh chemical cleaning agents. It is even strong enough to handle high-pressure washing and direct steam.

One of the biggest advantages of using Takiron IVY-ONE is it’s one of the few wall panel systems that is FM 4882 approved. FM 4882 is the standard developed by FM Global for products used as interior cleanroom wall materials. The standard combines FM 4880 and ASTM E84 standards into one harmonized standard for pharmaceutical, biotech, and food industries. FM 4882-approved panels are low-smoke emittance and will not allow self-propagation of a fire.

AM-Clad©

AM-Clad PVCu (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) panels have a smooth, durable, hygienic, and easy-to-clean surface that helps users meet demanding regulatory requirements, maximize production time and provides superior levels of hygiene and infection control.  AM-Clad offers two types of PVCu panels to meet different levels of protection – standard Hygienic Panels and Antimicrobial Panels.  Both types of Panels are heat-welded together using a color-matched vinyl weld rod. This process creates a smooth, seamless surface that ensures there is no place to harbor contaminants.

 

Antimicrobial Panels

For hygiene-critical environments to be truly optimized, antimicrobial protection is becoming essential.  The COVID pandemic has taught us that it is more important than ever to protect employees and clients from the spread of bacteria and viruses.  Antimicrobial is defined as any substance that demonstrates the ability to resist, inhibit and prevent the growth of microbes such as bacteria, mold, fungi and viruses.  Antimicrobial should not be confused with Antibacterial.  Antibacterial is different in that it is only effective against bacteria.  Antimicrobial is effective against a much wider spectrum of microbes.

AM-Clad’s Antimicrobial Panels are PVCu panels that are infused with billions of minuscule particles of silver ions during the manufacturing process.  The silver ions are invisible to the naked eye and are dispersed throughout the panel, not just on the surface.  These silver ions provide the extra level of antimicrobial protection that traditional PVCu panels cannot.

Product features:

      • Antimicrobial design protects against the spread of contagions
      • 2.5mm thick PVCu panels with high-impact resistivity (2mm thickness available upon request)
      • 4 foot wide Panels available in 8, 9, or 10-foot heights
      • Available in white color as standard (5 other colors available upon request)
      • Won’t rot, rust or corrode, and is stain resistant
      • Meets ISO Class 2-9 cleanroom requirements
      • FDA compliant, USDA compliant and conforms to the standards of USP797 and cGMP
      • ASTM E 84 Class A smoke and fire rating
      • Can be thermoformed into corners (preformed corners and 3-way corner transitions are available upon request)
      • Can be used to clad full walls or as ½ height wainscoting to add increased wall protection
      • Easy to clean – withstands the harshest cleaning agents and can withstand up to 140temperature
      • 20-year guarantee
