In this cycle coatings are applied to give the material special anti-microbial properties; the product can be used for walls and false ceilings in places which are attended by large numbers of people but are not expected to undergo frequent specific sanitising treatments, such as kindergartners, schools, public offices, shopping centres and recreational areas.
The coating components prevent colonies of the most common types of bacteria from proliferating and help to eliminate them. Tests in compliance with the ISO 22196:2007 standard, performed in specialist laboratories, showed effective action in reducing colonies of the following bacteria by over 99.99% within 24 hours: Staphylococcus Aureus, Escherichia Coli O1257, Legionella Pneumophila, Salmonella Enteritidia, Pseudominas aeruginosa, Enterobacter Aeroge nes and Enterococcus Faecalis. Two product versions are available: white and transparent; the latter can be applied to any polyester substrate, in order to confer antimicrobial properties to material pre-painted in any colour. These coatings are suitable for indoor applications only.
