While the misuse of antimicrobials has rendered a number of them ineffective, thousands of viruses and infections rapidly spread through hand contact on commonly-held equipment and surfaces every day.

With this in mind, what would be the most pragmatic product policy for a protective coatings manufacturer seeking to discourage antimicrobial misuse whilst proactively reducing infection?

With this question in mind, our strategy is a two-pronged attack with two new types of nano coating:

1) Our breakthrough technology, which combines the durability of our nanoscale silicon dioxide active ingredient with new cell-busting antimicrobial technology, has led to the ground-breaking introduction of our self-disinfecting coating, Liquid Guard®.

Liquid Guard® is a ‘stay clean’ wipe-on glass coating that provides long-term “full-kill” antibacterial performance on all hard surfaces. This nano coating is ideal in communal ‘danger zones’ where bacteria thrive and infections spread. Liquid Guard® antimicrobial coating protects service users against the following diseases: MRSA, Staphylococcus aureus, Listeria monocytogenes, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Escherichia coli, Salmonella choleraesuis, Aspergillus niger, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Enterococcus hirae. It is important to protect against these bacteria in a number of settings, including:

  • Multiple-contact ordering terminals in food restaurants
  • Sanitary equipment
  • Treatment surfaces in medical and veterinary surgeries
  • Equipment and surfaces in children’s nurseries

2) For areas where disinfecting and antibacterial protection is advantageous (but not critical), the Molybsan® range is a 9H nano-ceramic coating: a biocide-free collection of permanent bond repellents and cleaners that comprehensively removes bacteria from all surfaces.

Nano care antimicrobial

Liquid Guard®: invisible hygiene and abrasion protection defend against micro scratches on glass or plastic, guaranteeing zero limitations to usability of keyboards and input devices.

Molybsan®: invisible ceramic changes structure, surface energy and resilience, so microorganisms and their feeding source can’t adhere.

Liquid Guard®: easy-clean hygiene treatment for bathroom ceramics, toilet lids, sanitary surfaces, and bathroom utensils (e.g. taps, shower heads, and hoses)

Liquid Guard®: permanent hygiene for phones, keyboards, and other input devices that are in regular use.

Molybsan® repel-Y: antimicrobial smart surface coating resists all aqueous and oil-based substances (including blood and sweat) to prevent microorganisms from breeding.

Molybsan®: ceramic components protect against chemical (disinfectant) and mechanical attacks/impacts (abrasive cleaning), as well as radiation (UV light). Molybsan® reaches up to 9H pencil hardness.

Liquid Guard®: nano coating creates an invisible physical barrier to destroy microbes: the positively-charged nitrogen atom attracts negatively-charged cell membranes and punctures all microbes.
