Choosing floors for chemical processing can be daunting. Laboratory flooring must be pristine. Pharmaceutical and personal care manufacturers have high hygiene standards. And all chemical processors need a floor that won’t fail under their ingredients and products.
Vitrified tile can do what most industrial flooring solutions can’t: offer long-term resistance to all manner of chemical attack. Tile is also nonabsorbent, temperature resistant, and easy to clean.
Bonus: It looks amazing.
Vitrified ceramic is a natural, inorganic material that does not react to chemical exposure. Acids, oils, caustic substances – none of them will break down a ceramic tile.
Argelith’s vitrified ceramic has an absorption rate as low as 0.1%, preventing water or other liquids from filtering through. Drips or spills sit on the surface until they are rinsed or wiped away.
The world has never been more focused on hygiene than it is today. Pharmaceuticals and supplements have to be produced in a clean environment. Makers of cosmetics and personal care products are also concerned with protecting their products from contamination.
Argelith tiles are HACCP-certified naturally hygienic. Microbes do not grow in or on ceramic.
The tiles’ resistance to heat and chemicals also makes them easy to sterilize. If you use boiling water, steam jets, or strong cleaners to wash an Argelith floor you can destroy microbes without destroying the tile.
Argelith tiles resist cracks and abrasions. When installed correctly, they can reinforce the slab for years of worry-free performance.
Tile’s long lifespan and low maintenance make it a great choice for manufacturers or clinical labs that are operating 24/7 and don’t have time to shut down for periodic coating or sealing.
