Semi-rigid polyvinyl chloride (PVC) system, designed to offer a hygienic finish to more traditional impact resistance systems. The textured finish on the surface is designed to prevent scratching and scuffing, and the increased impact resistance of BioArmis helps to reduce the chances of dints and holes being created.

Antimicrobial performance:

BioClad® impregnated with BioCote silver ion technology. Once incorporated, the antimicrobial additive provides continuous built-in antimicrobial protection for the lifetime of the product. The level of microbes which may affect the aesthetics and performance of BioClad is reduced up to 99.9% in two hours, with an 80% reduction in the first 15 minutes compared to an unprotected surface where they can proliferate at dramatic rates.

  • BioClad is independently tested in accordance with ISO 22196.
  • BioClad is proven to be effective against E.Coli and MRSA.
  • BioClad operates a unique identification system with anti-fraud laser detection technology.

Suitable substrates:

  • Good quality fair faced brick or blockwork.
  • Sand and cement rendering 1:3 with a steel trowel finish.
  • 12.5 mm thick plasterboard.
  • Ceramic tiles which are securely bonded to substrate.
  • 9 mm (minimum) W.P.B resin bonded to substrate.
  • Pink lightweight plasters are generally not suitable.
