What does antimicrobial mean?
Antimicrobial is used to describe substances which demonstrate the ability to reduce the presence of microbes, such as bacteria and mold.”
What’s the difference between antimicrobial and antibacterial?
Antimicrobial Technology is effective against a wide spectrum of microbes: this includes bacteria, mold, fungi and even viruses. Antibacterial Technology, on the other hand, is only effective against bacteria.
SciCron’s antibacterial technology will offer lasting protection from bacteria, including superbugs such as MRSA and E. Coli.
The coating contains antiviral technology that makes the active ingredient effective against viruses, such as the prevalent H1N1 influenza virus. It is perfect for use in hygiene conscious environments where clean-ability, scratch resistance, and the transfer of microbes is a concern AMC-800™ Anti-Microbial Clear coating is infused with a permanent antimicrobial that will not leech, cause discoloration, nor affect the final product.
SciCron Technologies’ AGM-700™ Anti-Glare/Anti-Microbial and AMC-800™ Anti-Microbial Clear are scientifically proven antimicrobial technology that will provide lasting and effective protection against harmful bacteria, mold, fungi and viruses by up to 99.99%.
Articles within hygiene-critical environments are known to harbor pathogenic bacteria and other microbes for extended periods of time; the H1N1 genome, in particular, is reported to survive on surfaces for up to 24 hours. This combined with the increased prevalence of antibiotic resistance and reports that cleaning agents are having a reduced effect on microbial colonization.
AGM-700™ and AMC-800™ coatings are suitable in locations such as mass transit, hospitals, schools, food processing plants, and restaurants. (Not FDA approved for food contact)
