Palram's HYG™ Technology
Active antimicrobial action for wall-cladding solutions
PVC antimicrobial plastic sheets made with HYG™ technology aren’t just easy to clean. HYG™ technology is effective against a wide spectrum of bacteria, mold, fungi and mildew. PVC sheets and systems produced with HYG additives have proven to actively reduce bacterial colony development. Palram's bacteria-resistant wall protection solutions are designed for applications that demand the most stringent hygienic conditions such as hospitals, kitchens, food storage areas, and agricultural facilities.

Does bacteria-resistant wall cladding actually work?
Antimicrobial plastic sheets, panels, or cladding systems raise the bar when it comes to biosecurity.
As indicated below, it has been shown that antibacterial PVC wall panels with HYG™ technology reduce the growth of bacteria and fungus.
As silver ions are uniformly distributed through the panel, a scratched or damaged surface will not affect its antimicrobial properties.
Ten common microbes were incubated on PALCLAD Pro HYG for 24 hours at 37°C and >90% relative humidity (RH). The graph shows how the HYG panels demonstrate high antimicrobial activity.
WHAT PALRAM PRODUCT IS RIGHT FOR YOUR APPLICATION
PALCLAD™ PVC anti-microbial wall cladding panels are an attractive, cost-effective alternative to traditional hygienic cladding materials. It is lightweight and easy to install, is extremely durable, will not erode, nor will it crack with hard impact. It is available in a variety of colors and finishes, ensuring a sleek, long-lasting appearance. Unlike alternatives such as fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) panels, stainless steel, or ceramic tiles, PALCLAD lets you enjoy all the above benefits together. With its active antimicrobial activity, it is truly a superior cladding solution.
