Currently, the world relies heavily on alcohol-based sanitising products to effortlessly deactivate microorganisms including bacteria, fungi and mould. While these products are useful to prevent the growth of such pathogens, they are only effective for a maximum of two hours post-application, after which any new contamination poses a fresh risk of infection.
To address this shortcoming, companies are developing innovative coating solutions to permanently inhibit the spread of microbes on surfaces. Bio-Guard Coating, developed by Pylon Coatings is a dedicated range of antimicrobial coatings incorporating the Biomaster antimicrobial technology. When a Bio-Guard protected surface is exposed to bacteria, the silver ions in the coating attack the microbes in three ways: They bind to the bacteria cell wall preventing growth; they stop bacteria from producing energy; and they interrupt the DNA, preventing replication. If a bacteria cell cannot grow, produce energy or replicate, it dies. Surfaces that have been protected with Pylon’s Bio-Guard Coating will also reduce the cross-contamination risk while improving decontamination and maintenance procedures.
