Dycem uses an advanced polymeric compound that removes and retains contaminants at floor level. Dycem may look dirty between cleaning, but that is the dirt that would otherwise be inside your critical area.
Dycem’s products are effective due to the 5 S principle: Size, Suppleness, Smoothness, Silver, and Service.
Contamination on feet and wheels comes in multiple layers and varying sizes, requiring multiple steps for complete decontamination.
Effective decontamination needs at least six footfalls, three for each foot, or three full wheel rotations.
Dycem High Performance Contamination Control Zones are sized to allow for full decontamination whatever the traffic flow.
Dycem’s soft, supple surface conforms to the shoe or wheel allowing contact with smaller particles that would otherwise be bridged by larger particles.
This also allows a dense packing of particles so the surface remains effective even after continuous overstrikes in the same area.
Dycem’s exceptionally smooth surface creates a natural tack and a high degree of short-range electromagnetic forces (Van der Waals).
This enables it to attract, collect and retain over 99% of particles, ranging from over 100 microns to less than 0.2 microns.
This contamination is held on the surface until cleaned off.
Dycem contains a silver based anti microbial manufactured by BioMaster. Silver is widely accepted as having broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity.
The test list here highlights the main strains tested and their properties. This range has been successfully tested on over 50 different organisms in over 2,000 applications.
Dycem offers total customer support. Friendly advice and assistance to help you choose the most effective products for your requirements.
We regulary carry out particle collection efficiency tests using our advanced force gauge. The results are plotted on a graph so we can trace the effectiveness of Dycem High Performance Contamination Control Zones throughout their life cycle.
Dycem can provide a complete service option allowing you to have total peace of mind.
