worked for several years on the development of a paint system with antimicrobial effective additives and it resulted in ALEXIT FST BioProtect: A topcoat based on silver technology that reliably kills bacteria on surfaces painted with it.
After a single application, the product has proven its effectiveness for more than a decade now, the company said.
The product’s effect is based on silver technology: Silver ions, as they are contained in ALEXIT FST BioProtect, are highly reactive and they interrupt vital processes in the bacterial cells, ultimately killing them. However, on human cells, the silver ions have no negative effect.
Another advantage of ALEXIT BioProtect is that the silver it contains does not wear off and remains active for many years. The topcoat thus protects the painted surfaces for a long time without it having to be renewed.
