A wall system that lasts

Description and Uses

The Acrylicon Wall System is an extremely durable, hygienic and long lasting wall covering containing decorative flakes or quartz within a chemically bonded resin system. It is easy to apply and coupled with a 2 hour cure time, it can be installed in a fraction of the time when compared to traditional wall cladding and tile systems. Due to Acrylicon’s unique ability to chemically bond it can be fused with Acrylicon Floor Systems to provide a truly monolithic “floor to ceiling“ interface.

Designed to be used on walls in changing rooms, showers, toilets, wet rooms, food processing areas, hospitals, pharmaceutical industries, public areas, abattoirs, breweries, bakeries and many other areas requiring a hygienic and easy to clean surface.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Can be cleaned in line with current hygiene legislation and best practice. The use of a degreaser is recommended. Due to Acrylicon’s unique ability to chemically bond throughout the life of the system, any repairs needed due to customer damage or alterations can be easily achieved.

Cure Time

The Acrylicon Wall System is fully cured within 2 hours after installation and may be put into full use by the customer.

Properties and Application

Acrylicon Wall System resins are transparent, solvent-free, medium viscosity and non-toxic when cured. Acrylicon Wall Bodycoat is a slightly elasticised resin that can be pigmented on site and into which coloured decorative flakes can be fully or partially broadcast. Acrylicon Wall Sealer is used as a colourless protective top coat. The curing time is about 1 hour at 20°C/68°F (ambient). The lowest application temperature (substrate and material) is 5°C/41°F.

Substrate

The substrate must be solid, free of dirt, oil, dust and other contaminants that would prevent bonding. Acrylicon Wall System can be applied onto the substrate at a Relative Humidity of up to 95%. Acrylicon Wall System can be applied to substrates such as tiles, plaster, concrete and boards (for example Whiterock). For further advice please contact your nearest AcryliCon office.
