As part of our commitment to creating the best, safest coatings and finishes available, we fully invested in special coating products infused with antimicrobial agents.
These specialty finishes retain the luster, beauty and durability that we are known for, but have been engineered to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria such as staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and E-coli by as much as 99%.
The same tests were performed using five different chemical versions of Sterilcoat AM. In all cases, the results were similar — a decrease in microbial activity of between 99.4% and 99.99%.
In a day and age where approximately 100,000 unnecessary deaths are reported each year because hospital patients come into contact with germ-contaminated equipment, we believe that these types of antimicrobial finishes are a essential to promote a healthy environment with all medical applications, including medical devices, instruments, racks, sterilization equipment, bedpans, carts and more.
Other excellent uses for antimicrobial finishes and coatings include:
- Food-prep and handling equipment such as mixing bowls, serving trays, salad bars, coolers, sinks and serving counters
- Food processing pieces including grinders, slicers, conveyors and storage bins
- Home appliances like refrigerators, disposals, trash compactors, washers and dryers
- Construction and contracting needs such as pushplates, kickplates, towel dispensers, door handles, elevators, escalators, storage and restroom fixtures.
