Contamination: The Risk in Cleanrooms
Cleanrooms are designed to control particles to maintain quality, safety, and profitability. Contamination from various sources like personnel, products, and airflow can infiltrate your cleanroom and disrupt processes. Microorganisms pose a serious risk, spreading rapidly through contact with humans or surfaces.
Common types of contamination found within cleanrooms include visible particles, such as dust, fibers, and invisible particles such as allergens, microbes, pollen, and skin cells. Static (ESD) can also be a contaminant for devices with an electronic component. The presence of these contaminants can cause several negative outcomes including a reduction in product quality, factory shutdowns, unsatisfactory customer audits, product recalls, and pose a risk to health and safety.
The risks to a company’s brand, its profitability, and its people are too great to be ignored. An effective contamination control strategy is essential for cleanroom operations.
Dycem mats, implemented as part of a contamination control strategy, offer optimal support in reducing the risk of contamination in cleanrooms.

Benefits of Dycem in Cleanrooms
superior floor & Air particulate control
Dirt and dust are captured on Dycem mats and remain on the surface until cleaned off. With Dycem, cleanrooms benefit from a reduction in floor-level particulate of up to 99.9% and a reduction in air particulate levels of up to 75%.
REDUCED MICROBIAL CONTAMINATION CONCERNS
With Dycem mats installed prior to critical areas, our cleanroom customers have peace of mind that damage from microbial contamination is minimized. All Dycem products contain Polygiene BioMaster, an active antimicrobial additive.
COST-EFFECTIVE, SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVE
Unlike disposable contamination control solutions, Dycem mats last on average 3+ years. Cleanroom facilities typically see an ROI shortly after purchase, as well as the added benefit of a reduced carbon footprint due to less plastic waste.
