SafeCoat 600 Series Antimicrobial Coating
The SafeCoat 600 series is a decorative coating with antimicrobial properties.
Applied by Impreglon UK at our purpose built facility, SafeCoat 600 series will kill, as a minimum, the following micro-organisms:
Enterococcus faecalis, Staphylococcus Aureus, Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), Bacillus Subtilis, Klebsiella pneumonine, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia Coli, Salmonella enteritidis, Legionella, Candida Albicans, Aspergillus Niger.
In addition to an impressive anti-microbial function, SafeCoat 600 series is a decorative coating so combines functionality with aesthetics.
Unwanted germs and bacteria breed on numerous different surface types and are not limited to commonly known areas, such as public toilets. Escherichia Coli can live for days on a toilet seat or a door handle in your home - in fact, a recent survey by Queen Mary University's School of Biological and Chemical Sciences revealed that up to 10% of the folding money we use in every day life carries the E. Coli bacteria.
The presence of bacteria within our daily routines has also recently been investigated by a Swedish newspaper and a startling discovery was made when samples taken from shopping baskets, subway handrails and office coffee machines were tested. It was revealed that coffee machine switches can potentially carry up to six different types of harmful molds and types of intestinal bacteria. In addition to this, Staphylococci and species of Bacillus have been discovered when testing smart phones.

How does SafeCoat 600 series compare with traditional conventional nanosilver powder coatings?
A typical nanosilver coating will start at an effective rate of being able to neutralise about 10³ germs per hour though it's effectivity drops off to zero germs per hour after just a few weeks. SafeCoat 600 series starts with being able to neutralise 5 x 10⁵ germs per hour BUT retains this level for between 5 and 10 years, depending on usage.
Within a hospital environment the SafeCoat 600 antimicrobial coatings can offer a massive benefit. Research in Germany has shown that MRSA infections have risen from less than 2% in 1990 to over 20% in 2012, with around 80,000 patients contracting hospital acquired infections every year. A high proportion of these infected patients die as a result.
Where else can SafeCoat 600 series coating be used?
SafeCoat 600 series coatings can be used on hand rails, door handles – anything that has to be touched in a mass throughput or transport location, along with building services such as water filtration systems and air conditioning ductwork and many other industries. DDA and FDA compliant.
