Industrial Floor and Wall Coatings
In food and beverage manufacturing and medical facilities, hygiene is of the utmost importance. Flooring is a common source of recontamination despite stringent cleaning practices, as they act as a reservoir for bacteria within the environment. Antimicrobial floor coatings not only provide a non-porous surface, preventing the contaminants from seeping into the flooring, but the presence of the antimicrobial agent prevents the proliferation of microbial contaminants, lowering the likelihood of recontamination.
Inhibit Coatings has developed antimicrobial floor and broad-wall coatings for food safety applications, ensuring high levels of antimicrobial activity while maintaining a robust, easily cleanable, and non-slip surface. These coatings have been trialled in New Zealand food processing sites with huge success.
Inhibit floor and wall coatings are available through our partners The Polymer Group.
Fixtures and Fittings
As with floors and walls, areas with high touch points present a risk of bacteria and viruses being transferred from person to person.
Applying our coatings to items such as door handles and push plates provides an extra layer of protection, especially in areas with a lot of foot traffic and/or vulnerable people. Hospitals, healthcare facilities, and large workplaces are some locations where our nanotechnology is effective.
Indoor air quality is in the top five environmental risks to public health listed by the USEPA. A HVAC system is a common source of unwanted contaminants within a building; Legionnaire’s disease is a well-known and serious issue related to HVAC cleanliness. To prevent the spread and proliferation of unwanted bacteria, HVAC systems need to routinely be cleaned and properly maintained. Suitable antimicrobial coatings have been shown to be effective at preventing mold and bacterial growth in the HVAC environment. Inhibit Coatings has developed antimicrobial coatings suitable for HVAC, with the goal of improving indoor air quality and decreasing maintenance costs.
These Coatings can be applied to the metal ducting as well as various filter mediums.
Our clothes and face masks provide the ideal conditions for microbial colonisation. However, our textile coating is an effective solution, preventing the growth of microbes on textile materials and reducing pathogenic transmission in domestic, healthcare, and filtration applications. As a waterborne polyurethane, our textile coating can be applied to several textile and filter materials. Further, this coating is third-party proven to reduce Human Coronavirus (229E) by 99.9% in two hours.
Our textile coating is ideal for:
· PPE for front line workers
· Hospital and MIQ soft furnishing
· General Apparel
· Workspace upholstery
Inhibit Coatings is currently seeking partner companies to collaborate on products that will make a difference to our communities.
As demonstrated by COVID-19, the spread of pathogens is commonplace inside public transport. We envision our coatings applied to a number of areas such as upholstery, arm rests, drop down tables, and any areas the general public may have contact with.
Inhibit Coatings aims to make the post-COVID public transport system safer by protecting its customers from harmful illnesses.
Inhibit Coatings is dedicated to producing antimicrobial coatings, regardless of the system. If none of the above coatings fit your needs, then Inhibit Coatings is eager to enter partnerships to develop custom coatings. We can apply our technology to most surfaces, allowing you to obtain the antimicrobial protection you desire.
