Staron Delivers Ultra-Hygienic Surfaces

LOTTE Advanced Materials
Posted on: 10 Aug 17

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Staron's non-porous, acrylic solid-surface material is highly durable and virtually impervious to liquids, bacteria and dangerous pathogens. Unlike stone or laminate, Staron does not allow contaminants to penetrate its surface and will not support the growth of mold.

Staron surfaces require no sealing and little maintenance to stay in superior condition. There is virtually no risk of permanent stains from common contaminants such as coffee, juices and wine. While common cleansing agents may be used on Staron surfaces, daily cleaning can be done by simply wiping the surface with a damp cloth and an over-the-counter anti-bacterial cleaning solution.   

Staron's ultra-hygienic, easy-to-clean surfaces are ideal for hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare facilities where bacteria is common and sanitation is paramount. Staron is registered with the Health Product Declaration® (HPD) Collaborative and is certified by NSF International for use in food service environments, ensuring Staron as a safe and hygienic option. Additional certifications include ASTM Class A / Class I fire rating  and GREENGUARD Gold (sustainable manufacturing).

Other applications where Staron surfaces are ideally suited include both commercial and residential work and living spaces, as well as restaurant and hotel interiors. The durability of Staron surfaces significantly reduces the risk of permanent damage from scratches, marring, physical impact and high temperatures, allowing the surface to remain unblemished and beautiful for years. Moreover, Staron is a renewable surface that can be refurbished to a new condition at any time during its life-cycle.   

"Fighting the spread of germs and disease, and maintaining a healthy environment starts at the surface," said Dale Mandell, director of business development, LOTTE Advanced Materials USA, Inc. "Staron surfaces are the ideal material for commercial environments, especially in healthcare and food service, because of its inherent hygienic qualities and color-through, homogeneous composition."

Unlike other surface products, Staron surfaces can be thermoformed, a heating and bending process that forms the material into unique, customized shapes. Extensive design flexibility makes Staron the optimum material for interior environments where hygiene, aesthetics, durability and repairability are requisites.
