When it comes to flooring in the Pharmaceutical sector, there are three main challenges to consider:
With the industry hygiene requirements being some of the highest in the world, it is of utmost importance the floor is easy to clean. A light non-slip or stipple finish is vital to ensure there is no possibility of bacteria growth.
- Chemical Resistance
With acids, alkalis & solvents ever present in pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, with the wrong flooring solution being installed, corrosion is very likely. A corroded floor exposes substrate, which allows for bacteria growth. With hygiene being one of the most important assets to a floor in these facilities, a corroding floor is not acceptable.
- Machinery Care
Extreme care must be taken around high tech robotic machinery in pharmaceutical facilities to ensure there are no changes to the machinery functionality.
