Decorative coating that inhibits bacterial growth
Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, the danger of infectious agents has become important on a global scale. To curb the potential spread of bacteria and viruses in the future, Ionbond has developed a coating that reduces the growth of bacterial colonies.
In daily life, we have many expectations of the objects we use. Ideally, we would like them to be ergonomic, wear resistant, with a nice look, color, feel and touch and, if possible, excellent design. Ionbond PVD coatings are already known to provide a surface with above characteristics. Now, our coatings can also include a bacterial reduction function, eliminating the formation and spread of bacterial colonies, even after repeated touching by different persons.
The bacterial reduction function of the Barrion™ coating in the Beach color makes it ideal for public, commercial and private places in the following areas:
- Kitchen and bathroom applications
- Door hardware
- Sport & Fitness
- Leisure items
Ionbond Barrion™ Beach coatings can be deposited at temperatures around 300 °C, on various substrate materials including a broad range of steels. The coating thickness can be adapted from 1 to 5 micrometer, to ensure the most suitable coating specification and texture for each application.
