DTM MicroGuard™ is an Anti-Microbial Coating that has been completely developed and formulated (by our parent company Peerless Plastics & Coatings) to give protection against bacteria such as gram-positive e.g. MRSA and Listeria; and gram-negative e.g. E. Coli and Salmonella, amongst others. It effectively inhibits bacteria, whilst the protective properties of the coating are retained.
This new coating maintains the abrasion and chemical resistance of our clear protective coating together with the ability to halt the development and spread of commons bacteria’s. The popularity of this coating has already seen it used and tested within Healthcare, Veterinary, Dentistry, Food Processing and Aerospace.
With our large format coating capabilities we are able to apply this coating to sheets, moulding, components and surfaces of many sizes. Effectively if there is a flat/low graduated plastic substrate surface which would benefit from Anti-Microbial resistance – we are able to apply and cure to that material.
Practical examples of the application of this Anti-Microbial Plastic include:
- Coated wall coverings, both printed and plain
- Door handles and push plates
- Toilet partitions
- Hospital bed headboards
- Food processing wall cladding
As the coating is hard wearing due to its anti-abrasion properties it will not wear away under day to day conditions – even in high traffic areas of any facility. Furthermore, the coating offers excellent chemical resistance meaning that harsh cleaning chemicals will not damage the surface, which is a great benefit to printed/decorative surfaces.
Please note this product is not intended to replace standard cleaning regimes or requirements but compliment them, providing protection between cleaning or in areas which often get missed.
