Sterilcoat AM Coating
Sterilcoat AM is a range of antimicrobial powder coatings showing a high reducing activity against a broad spectrum of micro-organisms such as bacteria, yeasts and molds, including antibiotic-resistant bacteria ("superbugs" e.g. MRSA).
Sterilcoat AM shows a long-lasting action thanks to a controlled release of the active component.
The antimicrobial activity remains up to a temperature of 300° C and pH range between 1 and 13. This is far beyond the exposure limits of standard powder coating.
