COMPACT & LAMINATES
ASD Antibacterial surfaces may repel or resist the initial attachment of bacteria by either exhibiting an antibiofouling affect or by inactivating any cells coming into contact with the surface, causing cell death, therefore exhibiting a bactericidal effect.
Why IS IT Important?
Infections by pathogenic microorganisms present a serious concern for our health, as such infections kill more people than any other cause. Surfaces are continually at risk of becoming contaminated with harmful microorganisms and, therefore, it is a hazard to humans itself because of the potential for it to pass on these disease-causing microorganisms.
ASD Antibacterial quality offers antimicrobial and antifungal protection, reducing of microbes on the surface up to 99.9%
The world has long experienced the impact of surface fouling with biofilms, not only in economic terms, but also, importantly, the adverse effect that biofilms can have with regard to public health.
Antibacterial Technology is effective against a broad spectrum of harmful bacteria including E. Coli and MRSA (Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus); Antimicrobial Technology minimizes the presence of bacteria, mold and fungi. Antimicrobial substances offer a greater level of product protection by continuously inhibiting the growth of microbes on the surface for a very long time. This broad spectrum performance of antimicrobial substances make the product perfect for use in hygiene and critical environments like Schools, Hospitals, Commercial Kitchens, etc.
