Today’s intense focus on sanitation standards and cleanliness means that hygiene has to be factored into the very fabric of a building.

An antimicrobial agent is homogenously distributed throughout every Flowfresh 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 pro-actively prevents / disrupts the growth of bacteria on treated surfaces.

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 a 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.
