LAMILUX X-treme

With its X-treme range, LAMILUX is pushing the boundaries of technology and exploiting the full performance potential of fibre-reinforced composites. The strength and rigidity values are many times higher than those of normal composites.

This makes it possible to reduce the amount of material used, to cut excess weight, and to integrate useful functions – such as extreme impact resistance or the lowest possible thermal expansion.

With a maximum proportion of reinforcement fibres of 50% v/v, and an extremely tough and resilient epoxy resin matrix system, LAMILUX X-treme is the highest performing composite material in the sector.

LAMILUX X-treme is available

  • In thicknesses between 0.5 and 2.5 mm
  • In widths up to 3.0 m, depending on the product version
  • With woven fabric reinforcement or with uni, bi and multi-axial NCF reinforcement

Examples for fields of application

LAMILUX ANTIBAC: TRIPLE EFFECT AGAINST PATHOGENS

LAMILUX has developed an innovative composite material for the medical field: this fibre-reinforced plastic has a special nano silver surface which has an antibacterial effect. The effect: Germs die off within a few hours. The innovative material is thus an excellent
choice, e.g., for wall coatings in operating theatres and other medical institutions.

In addition to use in hospitals, there are numerous fields of application for the antibacterial high-tech material in the food industry. More specifically where high standards of hygiene must be complied with, and sterility is of the utmost importance; for example, in cold
stores, refrigerated cells and transports, as well as in processing rooms and abattoirs.

TRIPLE EFFECT ON BACTERIA:

  • Destruction of metabolism due to deactivation of cellular enzymes
  • Destruction of the cell membrane
  • Prevention of DNA replication

EFFECTIVENESS AS PER DIN EN ISO 22196

  • Based on four representative bacteria.
  • More than 99.9% of all bacteria are killed within 24 hours.

Added Safety

With its permanent effect, LAMILUX AntiBac helps to compensate for natural fluctuations in cleaning and disinfection at every point of the wall and ceiling surfaces. This creates a redundant system of maximum hygienic safety.

What disinfection means here is reducing germs by a factor of at least 105; in other words, thanks to LAMILUX AntiBac fewer than 10 of 1,000,000 replicable germs survive.

Starting from the time of disinfection, bacteria reproduction again increases exponentially. Often, a critical level is already reached here, before the population growth is stopped by the next cleaning action.

However, time period-based disinfection through LAMILUX AntiBac immediately suppresses the propagation of bacteria. Uninterrupted disinfection of the surface occurs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

WITHOUT LAMILUX ANTIBAC

Cleaning and disinfection are not always equally effective at all locations.

WITH LAMILUX ANTIBAC

LAMILUX AntiBac offers continuous disinfection at any point of the surface, even in hard to reach areas.

LONG-TERM EFFECT & DURABILITY

  • Silver ion release (worst case conditions) under substance-specific limit for food contact as per EU regulations on biocidal products (50 ng/g)
  • Theoretical durability: 55 years (= max. duration of silver ion release and consequent anti-microbial effect when cleaned twice a day) with maximum aggressive cleaning method with nitric acid (HNO3 at 40°C )
  • Laboratory weathering as per DIN ISO 4892-A-2 1,000 h
  • Condensation test 40 °C 100% R.H. (no change in the material and surface properties)
  • Temperature cycle test 8 h 80 °C/16 h 25 °C 6 weeks (no change in material and surface properties)
  • Temperature aging at 80 °C for 6 weeks (no change in material and surface properties)
