SteriTouch & Oxtek Form Concrete Partnership

Oxtek Australia Pty Ltd is an Australian owned manufacturing company that specialises in complete concrete protection. They currently supply Australia, New Zealand, Asia and will be supplying the UK in the near future.

The construction industry faces several challenges in response to new social and environmental pressures. The current market also demands cost efficiency and rapid execution. Oxtek Australia Pty’s unique and environmentally safe technology not only cures, waterproofs, repels contamination, hardens, densifies and protects the concrete, but allows for the application of topical coatings. These include vinyl and other floor coverings, line marking, paint, epoxies, sealers and timber to be applied in record time, resulting in significant cost savings.

Over the past year, Oxtek Australia Pty has been working closely with SteriTouch to develop a series of antimicrobial products, including the X260 Medi-Vet®, a single pack one application spray on system that deeply penetrates new or existing concrete. By utilising SteriTouch antimicrobial additives, independent testing has proven that the X260 Medi-Vet® is now 99.99% effective against MRSA and E.coli. With this unique combination, a permanent barrier against the growth of bacteria, biofilm and moulds has been established.

Also available is the X263 Medi-Vet Repeller Antimicrobial, a single pack one application spray on system that makes concrete impermeable, increases longevity and permanently waterproofs concrete from any direction.

Gary Curwood, Managing Director of Oxtek Australia Pty, had this to say: “Our relationship began with SteriTouch in 2018, and they have been a pleasure to work with. Their patience and support has been second to none through the testing, certification and on-field trial process. They are efficient with their technical knowledge and very professional.

“Our products that have had the SteriTouch added to them were launched this month, and the feedback from Architects, Builders and Engineers has been very positive. X260 Medi-Vet & X263 Medi-Vet Repeller has made a great impression in the Aged Care, Hospitals & Animal enclosure market.

“We look forward to an ongoing relationship with SteriTouch and are excited about future opportunities.”
