KECO Engineered Coatings, Inc. is unveiling a new coating called KECO AM.
An antimicrobial powder coating, KECO AM's properties offer significant benefits that are especially relevant amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
During the manufacturing process, a gradual release of silver ions occurs in order to create antimicrobial powder coatings.
Silver is considered a safe material for humans and, as an active ingredient, it is exceptionally effective against the growth of microorganisms on powder-coated surfaces.
Examples of microorganisms include viruses, bacteria, algae, and fungi.
KECO AM, which also provides long-term protection against corrosion, is available in different forms, including hybrid, epoxy, and polyester.
Additionally, the product is highly customizable and comes in an array of textures, glosses, and colors.
KECO AM applications include, but are not limited to:
- Medical equipment;
- Hospital furniture;
- Pharmaceutical labs;
- Food processing equipment;
- Restroom accessories;
- Shower enclosures;
- Schools and childcare facilities;
