Anti Bacterial Coating


Wybone sackholders feature our silver-ion antibacterial coating as standard, helping to minimise cross infection and the spread of harmful bacteria.

Bacteria is something that is around us constantly. It is in the air that we breathe and on the surfaces that we touch. Some bacterium play an essential role in promoting health and well-being, however there are many other bacterium that cause disease and infection. Control of unhealthy bacteria is becoming of increasing concern, particularly in healthcare, food hygiene and domestic environments.

Bactiban has been independently tested against a range of bacteria and was found to be effective against them. Bactiban can provide an effective secondary support to existing cleaning regimes in the fight against baterial contamination.

Silver is a well documented bactericide which is not harmful to human health and does not promote resistance in the bacterium. When in contact with a bacterium, silver is absorbed through a range of actions that destroys cellular function and the viability of the organism ceases.

To maintain long term anti-baterial action the coating delivers a constant and controlled release of silver ions. This release of silver ions remains active for periods in excess of 10 years dependent upon the environment.
