Addagrip is supplying flooring systems that incorporate Biocote silver ion antimicrobial technology, which gives its epoxy floor coatings, decorative finishes and self-smoothing screeds protection against the growth of bacteria, fungi and mould.

Addagrip’s flooring systems are suitable for buildings in which hygiene is a priority or with a high volume of people traffic. The company claims that Biocote-protected flooring helps in the fight against the hospital “superbug” MRSA and other infections in healthcare establishments. It says that in food and catering environments, the antimicrobial finish offers protection against bacteria such as E. Coli and Salmonella, helping to reduce the risk of cross-contamination.
