Subfloor Contamination and Antimicrobial Protection

X263 Medi-Vet Repeller is an innovative concrete treatment technology by world leader Oxtek Australia that is available from Protect Crete NZ. Sprayed onto concrete slabs at time of pour (as soon as the concrete is trafficable), this easily applied concrete treatment solution ensures safe and hygienic environments for food processing, hospitals, aged care facilities and so much more.

How does Medi-Vet work? 

X263 Medi-Vet Repeller is a single pack, one application spray-on system that deeply penetrates new or existing clean concrete, permanently filling the concrete's porosity, providing curing, waterproofing and deep matrix resistance to bacteria, moulds and fungi. X263 Medi-Vet Repeller with SteriTouch has independent antimicrobial testing showing complete protection against E. coli and Methicillin Resistant staphylococcus aureus. The added X300 Repeller provides surface protection and ease of cleaning against acids, oils, water based stains, chemicals, body fluids, wine, grease, and others. The system conforms to the moisture suppressant requirements as per NZAS1884-2013 and achieves the cure requirements of NZS 3109:1997 and NZS 3101: Part 1:2006. Protect Crete's patented formulation has introduced SteriTouch ionic silver additives which are are non leaching and non-sensitising.

SteriTouch gives continuous protection

Ionic silver-based additives will not lose efficacy due to leaching or migration, they are evenly dispersed and embedded throughout X263 Medi-Vet Repeller so even scratches and abrasion do not affect the antimicrobial performance. Cleaning chemicals such as chlorine bleach, disinfectants, alcohol, and even harsh industrial products like MEK (methyl ethyl ketone) will not diminish the antimicrobial properties of X263 Medi-Vet Repeller.

What is the purpose of concrete repel and surface antimicrobial protection?

SteriTouch additives eradicate the bacteria which cause contamination and infection, as well as those responsible for deep contamination build up of odours and staining. The antimicrobial effect on bare concrete floors (with no floor coverings) also protects the product against degradation, extending its use. An added key benefit for new builds is the concrete subfloors are protected from build contamination that can have serious effects on subfloor preparation required for flooring installation. For facilities with top flooring categories, subfloors are protected from deep invasive contamination.

From food processing to aged care

NZ projects include the new Whakatōhea Mussels Opotiki Open Ocean processing plant where X263 Medi-Vet Repeller with SteriTouch was put forward to the project by Grant Foster, Director of Solid Floors as is an all in one solution that is certified by HACCP Australian Food Safety. Also a Masterspec Specification was suppled by Gilt Edge Architectural to support application and warranty.

Architectural practice Archimedia chose X263 Medi-Vet Repeller with SteriTouch for the new Selwyn residential care dementia annex as an effective solution of total subfloor protection that would not require a further topical contamination protection sealer application prior to floor coverings installation.
