Antimicrobial Coatings – Enhance and protect the surfaces of your product

Antimicrobial Blog

In addition to enhancing the cosmetic appearance and durability, coatings are now available with antimicrobial properties. Antimicrobial Coatings use chemicals to hinder the growth of pathogens through cellular membrane perturbation, thus protecting the surface against the growth of disease-causing micron-organisms like bacteria, fungi, algae, mould, etc. It is not possible to always clean, disinfect or use strong chemicals on surfaces to prevent the growth of germs. Antimicrobial Coatings can offer a more secure and long-term solution.

  • Cosmetic coatings in a variety of colours including metallics
  • Soft touch coatings in a variety of colours

Transparent and hydrophobic coatings for glass, ceramics and other substrates.
