Take Preventative Measures with Microbicidial Paint
Posted Mar 06, 2020 by Dave Scaturro
The coronavirus continues to stir mounting concerns over its spread as 18 states are now reportedly affected in the U.S. Increasingly more alarming is the fact that we now have 90,000 cases and 3,000 deaths reported worldwide. Events that call for mass gatherings such as conferences, trade shows, cultural events and sporting competitions are being canceled as officials warn that the number outbreaks will continue to grow.
But what about the many places such as hospitals, health care centers, schools, restaurants and other establishments that continue to operate and be patronized by the public? Are they safe to go to? This may be a strange question for Alpine to pose but actually this hits at the heart of one of our most valuable products: Microbicidial paint.
We all know that paint can make our surfaces look nice and provide a layer of added protection against the elements, but did you know that Microbicidial paint can help keep you healthy, too? The increased public awareness and greater emphasis on public health has caused antimicrobial paints and coatings to become one of the industry’s most rapidly expanding markets.
New paint technologies allow us to go deeper than before - penetrating defense against these everyday microbes, greatly minimizing the impact of airborne dangers. These technologies allow for protection against bacterial based dangers, as well as anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-algal protections, and are not harmful to humans. These materials which are embedded into the paint either kill the microbes or render them harmless to people, and are effective against 99.9% of all common pathogens.
The benefits of this new technology are perfect for hospitals, classrooms, pharmaceutical companies, food production facilities, and anywhere that would benefit from an additional guard against pathogens. In an effort to remain safe during these uncertain times, it pays to take the extra precaution of keeping your surfaces healthy, safe and clean. Call us today to learn more.
