For the second consecutive year PORCELANOSA Grupo, a reference company in the national and international market, will participate in EXPOHOSPITAL presenting KRION®, its new generation solid surface, a product that promotes values such as innovation and quality. This material, warm to the touch and similar to natural stone, is composed of two thirds of natural minerals (ATH: Alumina Trihydrate) and a low percentage of highly resistant resins. This composition gives KRION® some clear exclusive features: no pores, antibacterial without any type of additive, hardness, resistance, durability, ease of repair, low maintenance and easy cleaning. It works in a similar way to wood, which allows cutting the sheets, joining them, thermoforming them to make curved pieces and even offers the possibility of being used in the production system by injection, making it possible to build different designs and projects that would be unattainable with other materials. It allows the creation of spaces without joints, which prevents the absorption of liquids and facilitates cleaning and maintenance. Although it is manufactured in a wide range of colors, the white finish stands out for its purity and neutrality, standing out from other similar materials. It is an ecological material, since it can be 100% recycled. Any product manufactured with KRION® can be reprocessed and used in the production process. Thanks to its antibacterial properties and its additive-free composition, we can see how KRION® is the perfect solution for furniture and cladding in projects in the hospital sector and its possible applications in consultation rooms, service desks, common areas, signage, rooms and even operating rooms, where hygienic conditions are the most demanding.This is thanks to the fact that in addition to these characteristics, the chemical welding between the different pieces and the possibility of curving them allow us to create continuous surfaces, without joints or corners, to avoid the accumulation of microorganisms that can contaminate rooms, consulting rooms, treatment rooms or operating rooms, thus reducing the undoubted risks to which these areas are exposed. Among the many advantages for the healthcare sector, professionals highlight the following: – Bactericidal surface: Krion® does not allow bacteria to spread, an extremely important aspect in an environment where the probability of contagion is very high.- Ease of cleaning: Krion® has almost no porosity and does not allow dirt and contaminants to penetrate the material.Its imperceptible joints also contribute to the ease of cleaning since there are no hard-to-reach corners where dirt can accumulate. – Resistance to chemical agents: Health facilities must ensure, by all means, that the hygiene of the place is complete. For this reason, materials with aggressive compositions that disinfect and kill bacteria are often used. Krion® is resistant to such materials, ensuring surface integrity and durability. – High resistance: to chemicals such as strong acids without deterioration, ease of cleaning and regeneration capacity, as well as resistance to common products in sanitary environments such as blood, iodine dye and others.- Customization capacity: In hospital centers the requirement is to adapt the designs to the needs that guarantee the well-being of the users.The thermocurved property of our solid surface helps its adaptation to the environment under the established professional requirements.- Environmental Product Declaration: It has a type III eco-label based on life cycle analysis to evaluate the impact on the environment. The combination of aesthetic and technical characteristics make KRION® the ideal solution for use in hospitals and health centers. The wide variety of possible applications of KRION® in the healthcare environment makes it the best alternative for carrying out projects of different sizes and typologies.
