The growing need to comply with sanitation standards and stricter safety regulations have resulted in construction professionals and maintenance managers exploring new ways to enhance public health and safety.

SABIC is helping customers meet these challenges with the introduction of new Lexan Cliniwall sheets for clean room surfaces and interior wall cladding applications.

The Cliniwall portfolio features opaque, low-gloss PC / ABS blend, solid sheets that deliver high strength and stain resistance to blood, iodine, rubber gasket marks and other common stains in, among others, public facilities.

Cliniwall’s portfolio is virtually unbreakable, extremely resistant to abrasion and offers excellent chemical resistance to most of the cleaning agents including disinfectants and Isopropanol (rubbing alcohol). When compared to high-pressure laminates, ceramics and steel, the sheets can significantly lower maintenance costs to provide long-term budget savings. The material is also very easy to install (even in existing buildings), to form and transport because it is a light-weight product.

The sheets comply with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive due to its non-chlorinated and non-brominated flame retardant technology and meets current European EN 13501-1 regulation requirements of the most stringent fire and smoke standards; it has obtained the best rating for a thermoplastic material.

When installed correctly, the sheets have a 10-year written limited warranty.

  • Public facilities such as schools, kindergartens, restrooms, airports, bus stops, train stations, sport centres or any other surrounds where there is a need to reduce the potential transference of pathogens.
