Hygiene and Cleaning protocols will always be the first line of defence in any healthcare setting. However it has been shown that surfaces that are regularly cleaned and disinfected can be re-contaminated with the next contact.
Adding an antimicrobial to a products surface complements current infection control protocols by reducing the ability of bacteria to grow on surfaces offering a second line of defence and enhancing cleaning regimes.
Urban Hygiene, based in Doncaster, produces easy-on+, an antimicrobial finish with a 20-year life designed for hospital ICU’s, theatres and wards.
Managing Director Mark Johnson explains: ““Building on the unparalleled durability and damage resistance of easy-on clear glaze, our Biomaster-infused coating can be applied to any wall painted or natural in environments where hygiene is paramount
Once cured, easy-on+ Biomaster Anti-microbial forms a completely washable, seamless barrier offering product protection that reduces the ability of bacteria to grow on the surface.
Based on silver ion technology and building on the impressive Biomaster name there is no other coating that can offer such complete wash-ability, durability and long 20 year life.
Applying easy-on+ Biomaster Anti-Microbial to hospital walls will improve appearances and in the long term save the NHS huge sums of money on redecoration, while reducing the ability of bacteria to grow on the surface.”
