Context

The new, state-of-the-art Francis Crick Institute in London is one of the largest biomedical research facilities of its kind. The Institute incorporates a range of grades of laboratories to enable studies on organisms falling under different hazard groups.

When deciding on wall and ceiling finishes for high containment laboratories, the architects were looking for a tried and tested solution that would withstand the Institute’s demanding conditions of working pressures, negative pressures and stringent cleaning regimes involving fumigation with formaldehyde. 

Product supplied

CS Armourglaze™ high-performance coating system with heavy-duty fibreglass reinforcement (FG Heavy) was selected for those areas, due to its exceptional durability and resilience to a wide range of chemicals.

This two-pack, solvent-based polyurethane coating creates a tough and extremely durable finish, proven to withstand rigorous regular cleaning with strong chemicals without any degradation to surface or performance. The addition of FG Heavy, further enhances the coating's resistance to extreme pressure or temperature variations, as well as impact damage.

Specified in an off-white RAL 9010 colour with a gloss finish, Armourglaze™ creates an impermeable, tile-like surface, which can be expected to last for 10-15 years with minimal maintenance.
