From hospitals and laboratories to food preparation areas and leisure facilities, some environments demand a much higher level of ‘clean’.
Addmaster has partnered UK wall cladding manufacturers Trovex to launch Activ:ion, an antimicrobial PVC wall cladding designed for food, leisure and healthcare.
Activ:ion protected PVC is a sleek, virtually seamless system that helps prevents cross-contamination by leaving microbes nowhere to hide. It has been proven during laboratory tests using the ISO 22196:2011 standard in hygiene-critical environments such as operating theatres and other infection-controlled areas to outperform other wall finishes, including stainless steel, reducing dangerous bacteria such as such Streptococcus faecalis, Salmonella typhimurium and MRSA by 99.9%.
Easily maintained and available in a wide range of colours, Activ:ion PVC wall cladding is also an attractive solution for changing rooms, locker rooms and shower rooms, which can offer a warm, welcoming environment for bacteria unless the walls are clad with an antibacterial finish.
The active ingredient antibacterial agent in the wall cladding is Biomaster technology. When added to a product, it prevents bacteria from multiplying; bacteria that land on a Biomaster protected surface are unable to replicate and therefore they die. The technology works 24 hours a day to inhibit the growth of microbes for the lifetime of the product. Activ:ion panels are also warranted to keep their antimicrobial properties for up to 20 years.
Addmaster Marketing Manager Karl Shaw says: “new regulations mean that we are having to respond to demands for ever-higher standards of hygiene in a range of settings. Thanks to Biomaster technology, Activ:ion is another powerful barrier against the growth of harmful microbes in healthcare environments where bacteria breed quickly and circulate freely.”
*Please note that Addmaster was acquired by the Polygiene Group AB in January 2021, so all news articles prior to that date will still be branded as Addmaster.
