Counteracting Contamination

For cleanrooms or pharmaceutical laboratories, dust and dirt pose real dangers. Contamination in critical environments can significantly impact quality, product effectiveness, and profitability. The vigilance required of facility managers in protecting these areas is constant because contamination is a growing concern.

 Research indicates that 80% of contamination enters critical environments via feet or wheels, and every step releases 215,000 particles. To counter these contaminants, Dycem offers mats and flooring manufactured with a patented polymeric compound. The natural tack can capture up to 99.9% of foot and wheel-borne contamination and up to 75% of airborne contamination. 

The Dycem difference stems from a supple and smooth surface. The polymeric surface oozes softness, conforming to shoe and wheel profiles and collecting particles between 0.1 and >100 microns. 

Moreover, the product's antimicrobial properties help inhibit the growth of over 20 organisms on contact.


Dycem protects thousands of controlled environments with its innovative mats and flooring.
