Antimicrobial steel coatings effectively inhibit the growth of most common microorganisms, including bacteria, mold, fungi, and other microbes through the release of silver ions. The antimicrobial technology works as soon as microorganisms come into contact with the coating and provides continuous protection for the life of the coated product.
Antimicrobial coatings make it more difficult for microbes to grow on the product surface. This keeps the product cleaner. It makes the coated steel product effective for places where there may be heightened concern about microbial growth. This includes the HVAC systems in hospitals, nursing homes, day cares, etc. It may also include foodservice equipment and server rooms.
The antimicrobial benefit lasts as long as the coating remains on the steel. It has completed salt spray testing, condensation and humidity testing, and water immersion testing that show the antimicrobial coating will remain effective for the life of the product.
Even though the antimicrobial coating helps keep bacteria, mold, fungi, and other organisms from growing on the steel, it still needs to be cleaned from time to time. A mild detergent and soft cloth are recommended.
