Year completed 2017
Project location South West England
Client Bristol University
Products used Wallglaze - Armourglaze and Wallflex high performance coatings
 
 

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 maintained, without the risk of damage or degradation to the wall surfaces.

Product used

CS Wallglaze performance coatings were specified for the walls and ceilings of laboratory areas to ensure long life performance. The range offers systems with various levels of chemical resistance to suit all containment level requirements.

The two coatings selected for the Bristol Life Sciences were:

  • Armourglaze, a tough, impervious solventborne polyurethane coating which lends itself to aggressive chemical environments such as Cat 3 & 4 ACDP laboratories and will withstand rigorous cleaning with fumigants, peroxides and otehr aggressive chemical cleaners
  • Wallflex, a versatile and flexible solvent free performance coating, suitable for use in both dry & wet environments, often used in Cat 3 ACDP laboratories

Outcome

The walls & ceilings of laboratory areas have now a very durable and easy to maintain finish, which will cope with regular cleaning without any degradation to surface or performance. CS Wallglaze systems 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.
