Did you know that 80% of microbial infections are transmitted by contact? This is where antimicrobial technology can help us prevent disease with new biological surface protectants.
The dangers posed by pathogenic micro-organisms are not new. However, we have to recognise that prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the main use of this technology against microbes was for surgical environments and areas where hygiene conditions were critical.
With general awareness of this threat and concern about the spread of bacteria and viruses, antimicrobial technology has become increasingly important. antimicrobial technology has become increasingly important.
But, above all, it has been occupying many other areas and activities, outside this traditional channel of a health nature.
Getting to know antimicrobial technology
This technology uses antimicrobial substances in products to reduce or eliminate the presence of microbes.
Antimicrobial substances have been used for years, but recently they have been used to develop products that provide permanent protection against microbes, such as these innovative biological surface protectants.
An antimicrobial substance kills and prevents the spread of micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi and viruses.
Effective against major viruses and bacteria such as HCoV 229E, SARS-CoV2 (which causes covid-19), Salmonella enterica, Listeria monocytogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, MRSA and P.aeruginosa up to 99,99 %.
Where are biological surface protectants useful?
The new biological surface protectants are based on this antimicrobial technology. They are silver ion-treated adhesives capable of killing viruses and bacteria on contact.
These antimicrobial surface adhesives are easy to install and very versatile and are therefore suitable for any location:
- Hospitals and the health sector
- Offices and workspaces
- Hospitality and trade
- Sports facilities
- Public toilets
Handrails, actuators, controls, knobs, handles... Any surface susceptible to continuous use such as door openings or lifts become problematic points due to their continuous use.
These biological adhesives adhere to the surface and last on average between 3 and 6 months. This periodicity is determined by the conditions of use and wear and tear.
