Premium antimicrobial coatings provide many benefits and are proven to help prevent the spread of harmful germs such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, mold, and mildew. Antimicrobial surface coatings can be used in a broad range of industry segments and applications to provide protection against the spread of disease in many different environments.
Where Are Antimicrobial Coatings Most Beneficial?
Public areas such as public transportation, buses and bus stations, airplanes, and airports can help to protect passengers with antimicrobial coatings. Many industries are now utilizing industrial surface coatings to protect people in any setting, including residential, commercial, and public areas like libraries and schools. Antimicrobial coatings provide valuable benefits in healthcare settings and hospitals, where it is already expected for people to be at high risk for transmitting harmful germs.
Just about any environment can benefit from antimicrobial surface coatings, especially on high-touch surface areas like handrails, doorknobs, light switches, restrooms, kiosks, and in many other surfaces.
Premium Antimicrobial Coatings Provide Many Benefits
Incorporating antimicrobial coating technology and surface coatings provides benefits to many industries and environments, doing much more than just helping to prevent the spread of germs. Some of the most important benefits of antimicrobial coating technology include:
- Improved Cleanliness and Health – any area where a large of people gather, such as office buildings, schools, theater venues, hospitals, etc., pose a risk for the high probability of spreading disease. Antimicrobial coatings on surfaces in these environments help to reduce the spread of disease, especially on high-touch surface areas.
- Less need for chemical disinfectants – by ensuring a disease-free surface area, fewer chemical disinfectants are needed. Antimicrobial coatings do not replace standard cleaning practices and, when used in conjunction with manual cleaning, provide significant added benefits. Antimicrobial coatings help to maintain a safe and clean environment and between chemical disinfection.
- Cost-effective cleaning solutions – by reducing the frequency of chemical disinfection required, companies can save money on the number of chemical cleaners required, reducing maintenance and cleaning expenses.
- Improve surface durability – antimicrobial coating technology prevents discoloration and staining of many surfaces, prolonging service life and increasing the value of infrastructure. Companies also experience added value when employees, consumers, or visitors are aware of the extra effort put into protecting their health.
