The Health Industry can have countless reasons why protecting your concrete from time of pour can assist in the prevention of concrete concerns. Don't be alarmed if your concrete hasn't been protected at the beginning, our products can be applied to concrete, new or under refurbishment.
Areas of concern in hospitals, medical centres, clinics, doctors, aged or child care centres are:
- Bacteria/pathogens that appears on and within the concrete matrix
- Bio burden within a structure
- Growth of mould, mildew and fungi
- Moisture Ingress
- Health risks to patients, staff and visitors
- Urine ingress
- Contaminates and odours within the concrete
- Sanitising/hygiene – cleaning programme
- Dust and cleaning
- Slip resistant
These products are what we would recommend (but not limited to) for concrete concerns:
DEFLECTA ANTIMICROBIAL® is government certified (APVMA approval no. 60195/56867) to kill bacteria/pathogens with a 99.99% kill rate for Golden Staph, E-coli, Listeria and Salmonella on and within the concrete matrix. It will stay active killing these bacteria/pathogens for a minimum of 5 years.
It produces a sanitised environment on the surface and within the concrete matrix with an internal moisture suppressant – the best solution for bacterial control and mould suppression.
DEFLECTA ANTIMICROBIAL® will prevent unwanted fluids entering new concrete and purging containments and odours that are held within the existing concrete matrix and a continuous sanitising process.
This assists in high infection control protocols.
DEFLECTA STABILIZER® is a cure and seal for fresh pour concrete, in the form of a liquid that is of constant volume and enters
into the voids and capillaries of the concrete matrix whilst is formulated to retain moisture and improve hydration and reduces concrete shrinkage
during its cure/hydration process.
It withholds moisture by confining its mobility within the concrete matrix and because of its constant volume significantly increases compressive strengths, flexural strength and surface hardness.
DEFLECTA MOISTURE SUPPRESSANT® is a clear aqueous born internal moisture barrier/treatment, protecting concrete for smaller applications such as office, warehouse, commercial/domestic and retail areas.
DEFLECTA SURFACE BINDER® is a water borne concrete sealer designed for use on concrete to provide a clear semi-gloss surface
seal. It can be used internally for commercial or light industrial applications. HACCP Australia endorses this floor surfacing as being suitable in
food processing and food handling environments in facilities that operate in accordance with the HACCP based Food Safety Programme.
DEFLECTA BOTANY® will suppress the growth of mould, mildew and fungi and reduce build-up of surface dirt and soiling over time on; grout, cemetitious material and concrete to most wet areas of high humidity and moisture ie; in particular showers, kitchens, laundries, bathrooms, food processing and warehouses.
It works at keeping the surface clean while preserving the natural appearance. Supports company/consumer hygiene requirements that reduces the vigorous cleaning protocols in both frequency and the cost of commercial grade cleaning products.
