Context

The basement laboratories of the Bristol Life Sciences building at the University of Bristol required chemically resistant, durable coatings to ensure the strict hygiene and cleaning regimes required within a laboratory could be achieved, without the risk of damage or degradation to the wall surfaces and coatings.

Product used

Sheppard Robson specified the CS Wallglaze performance coatings system for the laboratory areas which is designed for internal walls and ceilings of hygiene sensitive environments.

The Wallglaze range offers coating systems with various levels of chemical resistance to suit all containment level requirements, including extremely durable systems resistant to strong acids, alkalis, solvents, or formaldehyde and peroxides used in fumigation and decontamination. The two products selected were:

  • Armourglaze, a tough chemically resistant wall coating which lends itself to aggressive chemical environments such as Cat 3 & 4 laboratories
  • CS Wallflex, a superior and versatile hygienic wall coating system suitable for use in both dry & wet environments,

Outcome

CS were able to provide a protection package that met Sheppard Robson’s and the client’s specific design requirements.

The surfaces of the basement areas are now durable and easy to maintain as the Wallglaze coatings will withstand vigorous, regular cleaning without any surface degradation, and can be expected to last up to 15 years. After this time, the original system performance can be fully restored with the application of just topcoats.
