1 September 2011
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings today announced a partnership with BioCote, a leading antimicrobial specialist.
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings today announced they have teamed up with BioCote, a leading antimicrobial specialist in Europe, to create Interpon AM. Interpon AM is a high quality powder coating product that incorporates leading BioCote antimicrobial technology to offer coating protection in hygiene sensitive environments.
"AkzoNobel Powder Coatings is a world leader in powder technology, and working with BioCote we are now able to offer a coating product that combines the unique protective qualities of Interpon Powder Coatings with the antimicrobial properties that BioCote silver ion technology offers." Commented Mark Reekie, Market Segment Manager – Europe West AkzoNobel Powder Coatings. "The possibilities that antimicrobial coatings can deliver are exciting and building hygiene protection into a coating provides a further line of defence in many diverse environments."
Interpon AM provides benefits not only in traditionally hygiene sensitive areas such as medical and catering industries but also areas where there is a high level of human contact, for example in public transport, leisure facilities and self service technologies.
The antimicrobial technology used in Interpon AM is independently tested and is shown to reduce levels of bacteria and fungi by up to 99.9% UK and after months of testing the new Interpon AM products will be available throughout Europe.
Akzo Nobel Powder Coatings is the largest global manufacturer of powder coatings and a world leader in powder coatings technology, manufacturing at over 32 factories around the world. Powder coatings are used on everything from metal furniture and window frames, to radiators, pipes and cars and even wood and plastic. Powder coatings offer an attractive alternative to liquid coatings due to the fact that they are inherently sustainable because they contain no solvents and have application efficiency levels as high as 99 percent.
