All three of Suntech’s Wallglaze products (Wallsheen, Wallflex and Armourglaze) have non-leaching anti-microbial agents in every coat of the system, so even with the most rigorous maintenance programmes the anti-microbial properties are effective for the whole life of the product.


Suntech’s Wallglaze provides protection against fungi and bacteria, including MRSA, Salmonella typhimurium, Aspergillus niger, E.coli 0157:H7, and many others.

Product range offering chemical resistance levels to suit project requirements and cleaning regimes.

Suntech’s Armourglaze is the most durable and chemically resistant polyurethane coating on the market


Suntech’s Wallflex can be decontaminated from radioactivity and complies with HBN 26 ‘Facilities for Surgical Procedures Vol.1’


VOC levels compliant with current legislation


Suntech’s Fiberglass reinforcement (FG) options for increased abrasion/impact resistance

Suntech’s Wallglaze antibacterial hygienic coating systems for walls and ceilings have been applied in healthcare environments for over 40 years. Their antimicrobial properties are highly effective in infection control of the coated surfaces. Different performance levels can be achieved by choosing the appropriate system for the project criteria.

Typically used in the full range of healthcare environments, as well as many other facilities, where durability, hygiene and maintainability are key requirements.

The durability of Suntech’s Wallglaze antibacterial hygienic coatings is testimony to the quality of the products and their performance in clean environments means they can be trusted to help protect your facility for many years.

Suntech’s Wallglaze antibacterial hygienic coatings can be applied to almost any type of substrate.


• Durability and Lifecycle

The high resin content in all Wallglaze Hygienic Coatings ensures excellent durability, with a typical lifespan of a system in excess of 10 years. After this time the surface can be restored by an application of just one or two coats of Topcoat.

It is essential to ensure that the scrub and abrasion resistance of the chosen system is appropriate to the type of usage expected.

• Microbial Resistance

All of the Wallglaze coatings contain a cocktail of non-leaching biocides and will inhibit the growth and reproduction of bacteria and fungi on their surface. These properties will remain effective throughout the long design life of the product.

• Aesthetics

Wallglaze Hygienic Coatings are available in a wide range of colours from the BS 4800, RAL and NCS ranges. Colours can also be matched to project requirements.

• Environmental Considerations

For instances where the building will be occupied during coating application, or when a completely solvent-free system is required, use Wallflex or the waterborne Wallsheen system.

• Chemical Resistance and Cleaning Regimes

In the areas where rigorous and aggressive cleaning is expected it is essential to use the high performance Armourglaze system. • Impact Resistance For areas likely to suffer from impact damage, we recommend upgrading standard systems with fibreglass reinforcement.

• Substrate

Wallglaze Hygienic Coatings can be applied to almost any type of substrate, providing the surface has been primed with the correct product.
