Why Antimicrobial Protection for Liquid and Powder Coatings Matters, Now More Than Ever
Posted Apr 12, 2021 by Dave Scaturro
Now more than ever facility management and operators are looking for added protection to surface areas and equipment alike. Antimicrobial protection in the form of liquid and powder coatings is certainly one way of applying that much needed layer of safety. Our dedication to innovation in recommending and applying the right coating solutions continues with the availability of Microban® antimicrobial product protection by Sherwin-Williams. This product can provide extraordinary antimicrobial protection against stain and odor-causing bacteria on commercial or industrial surfaces or equipment. So how does it work?
How It Works
Microban® antimicrobial protection is infused into Sherwin-Williams products to inhibit the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria that may affect the surface of the coating. Microbes multiply quickly on unprotected surfaces. Microban® protection works to disrupt key bacterial cell functions, which mitigates microbes from growing or reproducing. Unlike surface disinfectants, which temporarily eliminate microbes from the surface of the coating, Microban® technology is designed to work 24/7. It protects the finish from the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria that may cause odors, stains or discoloration of the painted surface, or may cause deterioration of the physical properties of the coating.
The benefits of this coating technology are perfect for hospitals, education facilities, pharmaceutical companies, airports and any environment that needs to have an additional safeguard in place to extend health and safety procedures. These particular liquid or powder coatings not only look great, but they are also low maintenance, durable, and are sure to keep your surfaces looking great and staying clean for a long period of time.
