Coil coating metal products like sheet metal used for heating, ventilation and air conditioning, HVAC, systems with antimicrobial coatings prior to product formation provides many benefits over post-painted antimicrobial applications.
Benefits of Antimicrobial Coatings
Antimicrobial coatings are used in many applications to treat surfaces with a protective layer designed to resist bacteria and viruses. When antimicrobial coatings are applied to products post formation, it may be difficult to treat the entire surface area of a product such as on seams or curves. This can be especially true with HVAC ducting, as post-painted surfaces can miss surface areas where ducts bend connect together. With the amount of microbes and dust that circulates through HVAC systems, just a small amount of contaminants in the wrong area can spread these microbes and germs through the heating and ventilation system and into the air we breathe.
Coil Coating Antimicrobial Ducting Benefits Many Industries
When companies or homeowners install HVAC ducting that has been manufactured with pre-applied antimicrobial coatings, they have additional assurances that their home or office is better protected against the spread of airborne contaminants. By preventing the build-up of viruses and bacteria, these disease-causing microorganisms are less likely to accumulate to dangerous levels and are able to be eradicated by the HVAC filtering system or a sterilization system like Ultraviolet disinfection.
Another advantage of using HVAC ducting with coil coating applied surface protections is that the coating is typically applied to both sides, further ensuring comprehensive anti-microbial protection throughout expected service life. Pre-painted ducting with antimicrobial coatings for HVAC are available with custom coating manufacturers like UNICHEM offering surface coating solutions.
Antimicrobial Solutions for Many Industries
UNICHEM is a leading chemicals and coatings manufacturer, offering custom formulations of coil-applied coatings, paints, and industrial adhesives. Many industries benefit from pre-applied antimicrobial surface coatings in HVAC systems like institutions, industrial processes, hospitality, municipal, and residential environments. Nearly any environment benefits from antimicrobial-treated products and surfaces, such as handrails, doorknobs, furniture, walls, and surfaces you cannot see, like HVAC systems. When incorporated into product manufacturing as opposed to a post-production treating process, items are thoroughly protected with antimicrobial technology and usually at a more cost-efficient application process than post-production coating applications.
Our antimicrobial technology can be custom-formulated with various coatings, including coil-coated industrial adhesives, paints, and dry-erase finishes.
UNICHEM has been setting the standard for high-performance custom coatings, paints, and adhesives for more than 50 years. We partner with our customers to provide custom-engineered solutions that meet your specifications and address your challenges.
