Combining supreme hygiene with exceptional performance and durability, Neptune and Astral are engineered to withstand the extreme wear and tear of typical medical environments.
Neptune and Astral are calendered homogeneous vinyl rolls that are fully flexible and easy-to-weld for maximum hygiene in hospitals, clinics and general healthcare facilities where infection-control, wear resistance and porosity are paramount. Permeated with Sanosol®, a special anti-bacterial, fungicidal treatment that prevents moisture and growth of bacteria, this hygienic property of Neptune and Astral is ideal for floors constantly exposed to bacteria, bodily fluids and harsh cleaning agents, disinfectants and sterilising chemicals.
Offering uniform thickness, even solution-dyed colouration throughout the thickness of the material and low porosity, Neptune and Astral deliver superior abrasion resistance qualified to service the hostile demands of gurneys, catering trolleys, sharp medical instruments and high traffic volumes. Both ranges include either a protective Evercare® or PU coating respectively for improved wear and ease of maintenance, preventing excessive abrasion, and minimising scratching or staining on the surface after installation.
Premium range Neptune boasts Gerflor’s patented UV laser cross-linking application Evercare® that provides a protective wear-layer against stains and chemical aggression that needs no polishing, waxing or sealing. Developed by seventy engineers in three R&D centres in partnership with laboratories and universities worldwide, Evercare® is a new generation surface treatment, particularly suited to environments with strict technological constraints. Ensuring extreme stain resistance and low porosity to common surgical solutions such as iodine, betadine and concentrated nitric or sulphuric acid, Neptune offers a superior wear rating of P in 13 popular colours ideal for wards, theatres, laboratories, ICU’s and trauma centres.
The laser application process of Evercare® ensures that the treatment is a polymerised, micro-structured part of the molecular structure of the surface,guaranteeing it won’t wear off, and removes the need for polishing and resealing for the life of the product.
Apart from being easy to clean, Neptune with Evercare® ensures low maintenance and appearance retention at low environmental cost - the durable design and lasting colour brightness saves water and detergents, with low VOC’s and a high return on investment. In the hospital environment, that is critical.
Astral’s PU coating protects the surface during and after installation, offering improved resistance to abrasion with an M wear-rating in 13 clinical colours. Acrylic emulsion and regular polishing is required to maintain its appearance and prevent stains seeping into the floor.
