Novel antimicrobial technology acts like a cactus
Coatings with “MyCroFence Inside” will have long-lasting antimicrobial protection against a wide range of microbes with no risk for microbial resistance, producer Croda promises. These benefits allow paint manufacturers to differentiate their paints with offering hazardous symbol free paint formulation for exterior and interior applications.
Binder forms the physical barrier
The antimicrobial technology does not poison microbes but interacts with them in a physical way like the needles of a cactus. It modifies the binder in such a way that the binder itself becomes antimicrobial and forms the physical barrier. Due to the absence of toxic active release biocides, the product ensures a non-stop and safe antimicrobial protection. Coatings or paints with the technology can therefore be used effectively on walls, ceilings and floors in virtually any environment such as bathrooms, kitchens, and public buildings like schools and sports facilities.
