In the water sector, the threat posed by waterborne pathogens, including Legionella, Pseudomonas, and Shigella, is a matter of concern in both potable supply and wastewater applications.

The magnitude of this challenge amplifies, particularly in the extensive water systems commonly encountered in healthcare environments. Addressing this critical issue necessitates a comprehensive solution, and this is where Addmaster's expertise and commitment come into play with cutting-edge solutions.

With a focus on innovation, including advanced technologies like Biomaster, Addmaster strive to proactively mitigate the risks associated with waterborne pathogens, ensuring the highest standards of hygiene within water systems.


Antimicrobial technology for water

Biomaster antimicrobial technology is easily applied to water pipework, hose and filters to provide long-lasting, effective protection against harmful bacteria.

In hygiene critical areas such as food preparation and healthcare or in large water systems found in office blocks and residential care homes, a waterborne pathogen can pose a significant risk to hygiene standards.

Biomaster antimicrobial technology is suitable for use in almost all potable water and waste water supply applications, protecting against harmful waterborne bacteria such as Legionella, Pseudomonas and Shigella.


Antimicrobial technology for water tubing, pipework and hose

Regular tubing and hoses can degrade over time, allowing chemicals and contaminants to leach into water supplies and raising the risk of bacteria forming biofilms.

When this occurs, bacteria such as Legionella and Pseudomonas can thrive, particularly when there is infrequent use of the water supply in warm conditions.

Antimicrobial pipework and hosing protected with Biomaster has been proven to be effective against common waterborne pathogens, providing 24/7 product protection.

Antimicrobial technology for filters and showerheads

When water flows through a regular showerhead, the large surface area of the spray plate can cause limescale deposits and bacterial growth as droplets separate from the main water stream.

Inserts and antimicrobial filters protected with Biomaster inhibit the growth of bacteria which can cause biofilms, dramatically reducing the risk of cross-contamination from waterborne pathogens.

Medi-Shower’s patented antimicrobial showerhead has been adopted as best practice by NHS estates for greatly lowering infection rates of waterborne bacterial infections as well as reducing water waste and labour costs.

Features & benefits

  • Independent testing

    All of our antimicrobial treated water solutions are independently tested at a leading laboratory to ISO 22196 to ensure of a high quality efficacy against the microbes your product and end application requires.

  • Free of charge samples

    We can provide free-of-charge antimicrobial samples for you to test to ensure that incorporating Biomaster antimicrobial technology into your range of water pipework, filters or fittings is as straightforward as possible.

  • Expert support - with no licence fees

    Unlike other antimicrobial additive suppliers, there are no licence fees for using our technology.  You get the support of our technical, regulatory and marketing experts free of charge to help make your product a success.

How Biomaster works

Biomaster can be added at any stage of the manufacturing process and is available in masterbatch, liquid or powder formulations for plastics, textiles, paper and coatings.

When bacteria come into contact with a Biomaster protected surface, the active antimicrobial agent prevents them from growing, producing energy or replicating, inhibiting any further growth.

The controlled release of the active ingredient provides powerful, effective antimicrobial protection for the lifetime of the product.
