As a result, this product is widely used in public spaces subject to heavy density of people, and in particular kindergartens, schools, offices, shopping centres, and recreational areas.

Today’s market is ever more sensitive to the issues of sanitizing public spaces, and standard ISO 22196:2007 defines parameters for the antibacterial action of plastic products treated with disinfectants.

A-Pro-Hygien is created in a production process involving application of coatings that give the material specific antimicrobial properties.

The paint components inhibit proliferation of colonies of the most common types of bacteria and contribute towards their elimination.

This makes the product suitable for application on walls and ceilings in locations with a high density of people, like for example kindergartens, schools, public offices, shopping centres, and recreational areas where specific sanitation treatments are not conducted frequently.

Tests pursuant to standard ISO 22196:2007, conducted at specialized laboratories, have demonstrated an effective action over 24 hours, reducing more than 99.99 % of the colonies of the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli 01257, Legionella pneumophila, Salmonella enterica, Pseudominas aeruginosa, Enterobacter aerogenes, and Enterococcus faecalis.

This product is available in two versions. white and transparent: the latter can be applied on any polyester base, providing antimicrobial properties for pre-painted materials of any colour.

The paint varieties are only suitable for use in indoor environments. Find out about our applications
