Maumee, OH. – December 17, 2015 – Spartan Chemical Company, Inc., a recognized leader in the formulation and manufacture of sustainable cleaning and sanitation solutions for the industrial and institutional market, announced today the availability of PROmatte™, formulated to seal and protect with a smooth matte finish.
According to Royal College of Psychiatrists’ Centre for Quality Improvement, National Audit of Dementia, the floor design in hospital wards of dementia patients should minimize glare and avoid busy patterns to reduce the risk of falls and confusion. When asked about the safety of their floors, 93% of people responded that the floors in their wards are subtly polished rather than use of a high gloss finish.
For most facilities, high gloss floors are the epitome of a well maintained building - the higher the gloss, the better. However, in some facilities, glossy floors may cause a problem for building residents, such as memory wards where shine might be mistaken for a wet floor or look slippery and as such, create a safety issue. Additionally, in classrooms where there is a considerable amount of wear and tear on the floor, a sealant or protectant is desired, yet a glossy finish can amplify the blemishes.
PROmatte™ is a matte sealer, floor finish and protectant optimal for facilities seeking a low-maintenance, low-gloss finish. Camouflaging wear and tear, PROmatte provides a high perception of care while reducing labor costs; making PROmatte a great choice for locations with minimal staffing or floor care expertise. Highly resistant to black-heel markings and scuffs, PROmatte deepens the floors true color, protects the tile and provides a long lasting, unblemished appearance.
“Some floor finishes claim to be low-gloss, but immediately gloss up when you hit them with a burnisher,” said John Swigart, President, Spartan Chemical Company. “PROmatte is formulated with state of the art matting agents that will ensure a beautiful floor with minimal gloss.”
PROmatte™ is available through Spartan’s select distributor network. For more information or to find a distributor near you, visit www.spartanchemical.com.
