Applying surface coatings with premium antimicrobial coating technology is proven to protect against the spread of harmful germs including bacteria, viruses, mold, mildew and fungi. Antimicrobial surface coatings provide many benefits to a wide range of industries and applications, protecting public surfaces from microbial growth. Public places such as airports, airplanes, libraries, bus stations experience numerous visitors a day all touching the same handrails, kiosk ticket booths, restrooms and seating areas.
Healthcare settings like hospitals where patients may already be sick or have a compromised immunity must be especially vigilant and disinfecting surfaces in between patients and in public places. Applying antimicrobial surface coatings creates an environment unfavorable for microbes to grow and survive along with surface coating benefits such as increased durability.
Applying antimicrobial surface coating technology provides many benefits such as:
- Improved Cleanliness and Confidence
In areas which see high-traffic of a large number of people such as hospitals, schools and office buildings there’s a high probability of the spread of disease. Incorporating antimicrobial coatings on surfaces helps to protect surfaces from being contaminated with these disease causing microbes, especially in high-volume areas like hand railings, doorknobs, light switches and furniture. Antimicrobial technology decreases the presence of harmful germs on surfaces and in the air.
- Fewer Chemical Disinfectants Needed
Keeping public areas clean with chemical disinfectants requires a strict and continuous cleaning and maintenance schedule. Applying antimicrobial coatings reduces the need for frequent chemical disinfection to maintain a clean and safe environment.
- Antimicrobial Coatings Are Cost Effective
The use of antimicrobial surface coatings helps to reduce the amount of chemical disinfectant required, thus reducing cleaning and maintenance expenses. By incorporating antimicrobial technology into your surface coating you are preventing staining, discoloration and improving surface durability and longevity all while reducing the chances of disease and infection being spread through the contact with surfaces treated with these coatings.
- Increased Infrastructure Value
Antimicrobial coatings increase the value of your infrastructure by allowing organizations to provide a cleaner and safer environment to the public. Companies that utilize antimicrobial technology let their customers and employees know that they care about their health and safety.
