The Benefits of Antimicrobial Technology

With antimicrobial products becoming more readily available in the market, BioCote® discusses the benefits of antimicrobial technology and why you should add it to your product range.

Introduced during the manufacturing process, BioCote® antimicrobial technology becomes an integral part of your product. It helps to reduce microbes that can cause irremovable staining and foul-smelling odours, impact the overall cleanliness and reduce the lifetime of a product due to material degradation.

Read on to discover how you can make your already great product even better with the addition of BioCote®.

BioCote®’s wide range of antimicrobial additives offer lasting antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral protection.

Its antibacterial technology is based on globally trusted silver ion additives. Once manufactured into a surface, BioCote® antibacterial technology will offer lasting protection from bacteria, including superbugs such as MRSA and E.coli.

Its proven anti-mould technology will minimise the growth of all types of mould and is safe for use in plastics, paints, coatings, fabrics and many other material types to reduce the risk of unsightly and potentially harmful growths.

BioCote® antiviral technology makes a product effective against viruses, such as the prevalent H1N1 influenza virus. Like all of BioCote®’s antimicrobial additives, it is perfect for use in hygiene conscious environments such as hospitals, schools and care homes.

Untreated surface
On an untreated surface, the bacteria thrive and reproduce considerably.
BioCote® treated surface
On a BioCote® treated surface, the bacteria cannot survive and reduce by up to 99.99%.

Overall, products containing BioCote® antimicrobial technology will:

Reduce bacteria by up to 99.99%

Even antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria such as MRSA, VRE and CRE cannot survive on BioCote® protected products.

Be proven against mould

BioCote® creates products upon which unsightly and unpleasant mould such as Aspergillus niger cannot survive.

Be effective against viruses

BioCote® antimicrobial technology is proven to deactivate influenza A H1N1 and even reduce a strain of the coronavirus family by 90% in two hours.

Reduce cross-contamination

A cleaner product means less microbes to transfer, ultimately reducing the potential for cross-contamination.

Stay fresh for longer

Less microbes mean reduced potential for staining and unpleasant odours, so your product stays fresher for longer, increasing its functional life cycle.

Have an extended functional lifetime

Lasting BioCote® surface protection against microbial colonisation also minimises material degradation, ultimately extending the lifetime of the product.

Be easier to keep hygienically clean

Thanks to BioCote®, your product will have around-the-clock protection against unseen microbes permanently.

Be safe to use in a variety of environments

The supply of the right antimicrobial additive means your BioCote® protected product can be used as it always has been without risk or concern.

Offer lasting protection from bacteria and mould

Introduced during the manufacturing process, BioCote® antimicrobial technology will not wear out or wash off, meaning it will last for the product’s lifetime.

BioCote® has a range of antimicrobial additives for plastics, polymers, paints, coatings, textiles, fabrics, paper, ceramics and many other material types. Contact a member of the team today to discover more about the benefits of its inbuilt antimicrobial technology.
