New terrazzo system includes antimicrobial agent

New from Flowcrete, Mondeco TZ is a joint-free polyurethane terrazzo flooring system that combines hard-wearing silver granite and white flint aggregates with a powerful silver ion-based antimicrobial agent. It has been designed to deliver the highest order in durability, resistance and hygiene for the most demanding industrial environments. The system’s base is resilient polyurethane concrete that offers excellent resistance to abrasion, substantial impact and thermal shock as well as severe chemical attack. The material, which is 1/4 inch thick once ground, can withstand temperatures from minus 40 F to 221 F and is well-suited to harsh steam and hot-water cleaning processes as well as aggressive cleaning agents. The system incorporates tough granite and flint aggregates that enhance the product’s durability and longevity while providing a surface that offers the natural beauty of traditional Italian terrazzo. Also, included within the resin matrix is Polygiene, a powerful silver-based antimicrobial additive that eliminates bacterial growth at ground level. The science is based on a natural amino compound, which emits a constant stream of silver ions that destroys any bacteria that settles on the surface of the floor. ? www.flowcrete.com
