MSD (Merck & CO), Ballydine

Designing clean rooms for drug production facilities

Puracore® were chosen by MSD, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, for a three phase project over 24 months to supply cleanroom systems for an expansion of one of their drug production facilities.

The requirement for modified Puracore® panels

The MSD facility in Ballydine, Ireland required cleanroom panels with a specialist high-pressure laminate face to comply with the strict cleaning regime of the site. Puracore® manufactured 550m² of high specification cleanroom panels with a modified Trespa® face to meet these requirements.

The manufacturing process was altered to accommodate the addition of the specialist finish with a second press required to bond the Trespa® to the Puracore® panel. The addition of extra presses meant quality checks were paramount particularly in panels over 3m in height where two pieces of Trespa® were bonded.

Cleanroom – Result of the project

Despite the necessary changes to the manufacturing process and the challenges that came with it, the bespoke cleanroom panels were delivered on time and to specification to the delight of the client.

‘The product is very good. In general, everything went fine. We will certainly use you again.’ Managing Director, Irish Installer Partner
