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 wheelborne 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.
