Palram HYG Technology
Active Antimicrobial Action for Wall-Cladding Solutions
PVC wall cladding panels made with HYG™ technology aren’t just easy to clean – they’re actively hygienic. For applications which demand the most stringent hygienic conditions, such as hospitals, agricultural facilities and kitchens, HYG™ technology wall cladding sheets set a new standard for cleanliness.
HYG Technology that uses natural antimicrobial agent
Palram’s breakthrough HYG hygienic wall cladding products incorporate silver ions, a natural antimicrobial agent with proven biocidal behavior which thoroughly inhibits microbe reproduction. As these ions are embedded into the panels (not just a coating), so even scuffed or worn panels will maintain the same antimicrobial properties.
With silver ions, HYG wall cladding PVC sheets bring active microbe elimination to a new and wide range of applications, taking hygienic care one step further.

PALCLAD Pro HYG hygienic wall cladding
How Does The Antimicrobial Action Work?
Palclad Pro HYG installed as wall cladding.
Microbes come in contact with the wall cladding while ions become active by moisture.
Ions attack microbes on the surface.
Washing the wall with water or any other rinse fluid removes the dead microbes.
HYG Tests – Microbe Elimination
10 common microbes were incubated on Palclad Pro HYG for 24 hours at 37°C and >90% relative humidity (RH). The graphs shows HYG panels demonstrate high antimicrobial activity.
