Why Dycem?

The Dycem difference

The Dycem Difference

Dycem contamination control mats and flooring are manufactured with a patented polymeric compound, creating a natural tack and proven to retain up to 99.9% of foot and wheelborne particles from entering unwanted areas.

The Dycem difference is created through several key features


It is well accepted that to effectively remove contamination from feet and wheels, it takes a total of six footfalls or three full wheel rotations. Only Dycem delivers this.


Dycem’s unique polymeric surface is soft and supple, conforming to shoe and wheel profiles and collecting particles between 0.1 and >100 microns.


Dycem’s exceptionally smooth surface creates a natural tack and a high degree of short-range electromagnetic forces (Van der Waals). This enables it to attract, collect and retain up to 99.9% of foot and wheel-borne contamination, as well as up to 75% of airborne particles.


Dycem products all include Biomaster – a silver ion-based anti-microbial, proven to provide effective and lasting protection on more than 50 different organisms, including Salmonella, E.coli, Listeria and MRSA.

More about Biomaster


Both Cleanzone and Workzone products have a surface resistivity of 108 ohm, allowing it to help reduce Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) and the damage it can cause.


Dycem offers complete customer support before, during, and after your purchase. As part of your Dycem purchase, a yearly particle collection efficiency test (AFG test) will be conducted by a Dycem representative, including a report produced for your records to show current effectiveness of the mats or flooring.

The Key Benefits of Choosing Dycem

Dycem’s contamination control mats and flooring are scientifically proven to be the most effective, long-lasting and high-performance method of minimising foot, wheel and airborne contamination.

Companies across a variety of industries have all experienced a long list of benefits after installing Dycem, including:

  • Reduced floor and air particulate counts in controlled or critical areas.
  • Improved product yield, cost savings and profitability.
  • A visible barrier zone, alerting personnel that they are about to enter a critical area.
  • Unavoidable decontamination as Dycem mats or flooring cannot be bypassed when properly sized and positioned at all critical control paths.
  • Long-lasting, cost effective solution compared with peel-off mats and other alternatives.
  • Only effective solution for wheeled traffic.
  • Reduced microbial counts due to Biomaster, a high-performance antimicrobial additive in all Dycem products.
  • Reduced carbon footprint as Dycem products are environmentally friendly – creating significantly less waste than peel-off mats or shoe covers and containing no Silicon, latex or DOP outgassing.
  • Easy to clean, maintain, and incorporate into existing Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s).
  • Reduced critical area cleaning costs due to less contamination entering the environment.
  • Static dissipation prior to ESD sensitive areas.
  • Cleaner shoes and wheels give improved ESD contact.
  • Improved quality of working life due to reduced allergens in the atmosphere.
  • One year warranty.
  • A network of global customer support with dedicated local specialists on the ground.

“Independent tests carried out, prove that Dycem High-Performance Contamination Control Zones prevent up to 99.9% of all viable and non-viable foot and wheel-borne contamination from entering a critical area.” Senior Microbiologist, Independent Scientifc Testing Company, UK
