Dycem: WorkZone Contamination Control

Dycem’s WorkZone has been specifically designed to remove contamination from areas subject to heavy wheeled traffic. It effectively attracts, collects and retains contamination from the wheels of forklifts, pallet trucks, large trolleys and carts preventing particles and microbes from getting into critical areas. Unlike adhesive peel-off mats which tend to wrap around wheels, specifically WorkZone with its larger continuous floor coverings provides the only effective form of wheel-borne contamination control.

It is designed to be used in all entrances to prevent ingress of contamination; in all exits to stop the spread of contamination, cross contamination and the spread of potent compounds. It will also be used in corridors to prevent cross contamination. WorkZone is being used in multiple areas where contamination is an issue. It is applied in the most pharmaceutical production areas where maximizing yield and product quality is of paramount importance. This may be equally said in many environments across all industries including electronics, automotive, optics and IT production and development settings.

Dycem’s CleanZone technology is a proven active working floor covering which attracts, collects and retains foot, wheel and airborne contamination. Dycem’s products contain an integral anti-microbial additive, BioMaster™. This has been successfully tested against fifty common organisms including Salmonella, E.coli, Listeria, Campylobacter, Pseudomonas, A.Niger (black spot mould growth) and Algae. BioMaster has also been demonstrated to help combat MRSA.

Being environmentally friendly saving energy in both production and in disposal, CleanZone products are also quick and easy to maintain as part of the regular cleanroom wet cleaning schedule. The surface of the mat is cleaned with a damp sponge and detergent; then squeegeed dry and finally wiped clean of the detergent and contaminant residue.

Dycem’s products using CleanZone technology have been shown to trap and contain more than 99% of all viable and non-viable foot and wheel borne contamination from entering a critical area. This has resulted in thousands of facilities around the world using Dycem as a key component in their battle against contamination.
