AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has teamed up with BioCote, an antimicrobial specialist in Europe, to create Interpon AM. Interpon AM is a high quality powder coating product that incorporates 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 protective qualities of Interpon Powder Coatings with the antimicrobial properties that BioCote silver ion technology offers,” said 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 percent UK and after months of testing the new Interpon AM products will be available throughout Europe.
