Coating Solutions to Help Keep Your Staff Well
Many coatings have performance qualities that make it easier to clean and maintain facilities. More than ever, leaders are looking for ways to extend those benefits.
Over the last several years, more research has gone into coatings that can reduce the reproduction rate of bacteria and viruses. Some products can even destroy pathogens on a coated surface. This type of advance is encouraging, especially in high-risk settings like healthcare, education and childcare.
Antimicrobial coatings have long been a part of the healthcare world. Antimicrobial components are usually found in the topcoat rather than the primer. This ensures maximum contact between microbes and the chemicals that can disrupt their activity.
In most modern workplaces, there are physical threats as well as physiological hazards. Intumescent paint is a specialized coating that is inert at ordinary operating temperatures but reacts at high heat, generally around 400° Fahrenheit.
