Anti-microbial powder coatings
Most IFS powder paint coatings can be formulated with anti-microbial capability. These clever coatings use silver ions to help inhibit the growth of mildew and spoilage causing microbes on the powder coating. What’s more, as silver is a naturally occurring element, the silver ions used are also environmentally responsible and have been shown to offer protection against microbes that cause odor, mildew, and spoilage on the product without high toxicity to humans and animals.
Our antimicrobial paint finishes are designed for use on a wide range of applications including laboratories, bathrooms, hospitals, schools, child care facilities, public transit, play equipment, handrails, fitness equipment and high use areas.
How does antimicrobial paint work?
IFS’s coatings are treated with silver ions, which inhibit the growth of cellular enzymes on the coating in the presence of moisture. Anti-microbial product protection can be added to most IFS formulations and the coating will retain its anti-microbial product protection over time.
IFS Purecoat is the IFS range of high quality clear coats. IFS anti-microbial treated powder coatings are put through strict, premium testing and achieve excellent test results. IFS anti-microbial powders pass ISO22196 and JIS Z 2801 testing standards for efficacy.
The powder coating’s antimicrobial finish product treatment successfully kills mildew causing microbes on the coating, according to laboratory studies. IFS anti-microbial Purecoat clears also boast excellent UV resistance, performing to BHMA specifications.
