Antimicrobial coatings are coatings that are treated with an antimicrobial agent and applied to a surface to prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, or algae.
Bacterial and fungal growth can affect any kind of surface, common ones being:
- Wood (Painted, Lacquered, Powder Coated)
- Metal (Powder Coated, Painted, etc.)
Bacterial and fungal growth affects these coatings by producing bacterial or musty fungal odors, staining, and reducing the lifespan of the product. Antimicrobial coatings add value and functionality to finished products by reducing odors, staining, and extending product life.
Benefits of Antimicrobial Coatings
Offers proven surface protection by controlling the growth of unwanted bacteria and fungi. Mould growth can be harmful to health to anyone within close proximity, causing allergic reactions, to even death.
Actively kills 99.99% of all viruses and bacteria on a coated surface, with an effectiveness that lasts up to 180 days, much better than the instant killing of disinfectants.
Prolongs surface life
An antimicrobial coating will help prolong the life of materials, preventing fungi growth, discolouration, loss of tensile strength in plastics, and cracking, particularly in outdoor applications.
Effective mould prevention
Mould grows well in places with high moisture and humidity, hence it is a common issue in Singapore. Antimicrobial coatings prevent mould and mildew growth, preventing coated surfaces from ageing, helping to keep refurbishment and restoration costs down.
