LINE-X launches bacteria-resistant antimicrobial van-liner coating

October 7, 2011

With increasing concern over infectious bacteria such as MRSA, E-coli and salmonella, LINE-X has launched an optional antimicrobial coating to help the fight against bacterial invasion.

Harmful bacteria thrive on untreated surfaces, especially in food prep and healthcare industries. The LINE-X antimicrobial coating has been independently tested to ISO standards and proven to reduce up to 99.9 percent of bacteria (MRSA and E-Coli) over a two-hour period, the company said.

LINE-X are offering their new antimicrobial coating as a van liner across the multiple industries dealing with the risks of harmful bacteria such as health authorities, refuse and animal welfare.

LINE-X Protective Coatings Ltd. have a presence within the van lining market with its XS100 product that offers high tensile strength, a watertight/airtight seal preventing rust and corrosion, scratch and ding resistance, as well as a fast cure time and chemical resistance. The new antimicrobial liner increases adds bacteria fighting capabilities to LINE-X’s offering.

The LINE-X Antimicrobial Coating is an ideal interior lining for ambulances, waste-refuse trucks and all other transportation dealing with the possible infestation of bacteria, by preventing the bacteria’s growth. The antimicrobial additive within the liner continues to work in between clean downs so the LINE-X coating will continue to reduce bacteria when in consistent use, the company said.

The antimicrobial range of LINE-X Coatings provides a release of silver ions on demand, which in turn safely inhibits bacterial growth.
