Stick-on sheets increase parlour hygiene

MAKE milking parlours hygienic using Vekaplan K rigid PVC-U 2.5mm sheets fitted directly to concrete blocks, says Veka AG.

The plastic sheets are claimed to be tough with high impact resistance combined with a smooth gloss finish.

Vega AG adds that the sheets can be fixed directly on to concrete blocks using a Bostic pad adhesive system. And corners can be thermoformed to a neat radius bend to give an uninterrupted hygienic surface.

Vekaplan K is resistant to acids, alkalis and rodents and can be sawn, screwed or glued as easily as wood, claims Veka AG.

It costs about £17/sq m for 2.5mm Vekaplan K from distributors (01282-418409).
