ANTIMICROBIAL SURFACE PROTECTION
Using technology scientists have created Nordic Chem an Antimicrobial Coating. The formula is a next generation water-based, long-term antimicrobial coating designed to inhibit the growth of microorganisms for up to 90 days. Once the coating has dried it forms a layer of spikes that will destroy the cell of a Virus or Bacteria on contact. The product works by using a mechanical kill instead of a chemical, meaning its safer for the environment long term. Once the coating has been applied it will last up to 3 months and will help to stop the transmission of germs from person to person. The active ingredient in the coating is ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) registered and compliant.
LONG TERM PROTECTION
Protection for upto 90 days or longer in low traffic areas which means 24hr 7 days a week protection against Viruses & Bacteria. Reduces a bacterial population by 4 logs.
SAFETY & TESTING
Fully tested and safe and is not classed as a dangerous product. Has been tested against skin tolerance.
The coated touch Points can be applied to almost every surface, if you are unsure then contact us.
Can be used in all kinds of sectors including Nursing Homes, Hospitals, Schools, Councils, Shops, Offices, Agriculture, Airports, Gyms, Public Transport, Cleaning companies and many more.
The touch point coating has been tested for Bacteria & Viruses* and Inhibits the development of 99.9% of the germs tested under ISO 22196 & ISO 21702 tested inline with EN14476. Proven and tested efficacy against HCov-229E* with a viral reduction of 99.87%. For more information on this please contact us.
The coatings on the touch points contain no VOC, formaldehyde treatment, phenol groups, or odor causing agents that can lead to allergies or asthma.
Why You Need Surface Touch Points
Have you ever looked at how many times an item or surface is touched by different people. For example the computer keyboard is 400 times more contaminated by microbes than a WC, with 60 times more germs It is even dirtier than the telephone, and would exceed the rate limit by 150 times of bacteria admissible for health. The television remote control, especially in hotels, contains a level of microbes that still exceeds previous figures. Items such as doorknobs, toilets, touch screens at bank counters, touch kiosks in fast food restaurants or salt shakers or even chairs in restaurants are nests of microbes, a number of which are dangerous for health .
Coronavirus Living on a Surface
As you can see from the chart on the left, Coronavirus can last for up to 96 hours on Stainless steel and Plastic surfaces, this means that your door handles or push doors could potentially be harbouring Viruses & Bacteria on. We did a recent case study watching how many people came into a restaurant over a period of one hour, we found that during this period up to 30 people entered the restaurant touching the same point on the door. This shows that unless the door is continually cleaned the bacteria has time to grow and the population growth increases, viruses like SARS-CoV-2 will sit on the surface until they eventually die or find a host to attach to. UPDATE: Recent research carried out in October by Australia's national science agency found surfaces contaminated for upto 28 days.
How our Self Cleaning Touch Points work.
The coating on the self cleaning touch points uses an advanced silver ion Antimicrobial technology the Silver ions are released by moisture in the air and are activated on the superficial layer. These reactive ions may quickly block the metabolism of bacteria and thus prevent their proliferation between two cleaning and disinfection protocols. The surface becomes highly reactive affecting multiple sites in cells, guaranteeing their destruction. the technology will produce alterations to the cell wall and when they are transported into the cell they bind with proteins and interfere with the production of enzyme function and cell replication.
Bacterial growth on a surface
Not only do our touch point surfaces reduce Human Coronavirus 229E but they also stop bacterial population on the surface, the chart on the left hand side shows two surfaces that have been tested, an untreated surface( in blue) and a treated surface ( in red). The bacteria starts to populate the surface and continues to grow, the treated surface inhibits the development of the bacteria from the moment it touches the surface and continues to stop the bacterial growth. Tests showed a 99.99% reduction of germs on the surfaces.
Recent Research of Air and Surface Contamination by SARS-CoV-2
A recent study carried out tests on covid 19 infected patient rooms, the tests carried out where done on the surface of items and air samples. During the process 3 rooms are tested for airborne infection and 245 surface samples are collected. 66.7% of surfaces in the rooms were found to be contaminated in the first week of illness and 20% of the rooms beyond the first week of illness. When the surfaces of the rooms are tested it shows the following results 65% of contamination was on the floor, 59% on the bed surfaces, 47% on door and handle surfaces, 35% on electric switches and other items, 30% on toilet flush and seat.
Investigation SARS-COV-2 Surface and air contamination London.
We performed this prospective cross-sectional observational study in a multi-site London hospital. Results: Viral RNA was detected on 114/218 (52.3%) of surfaces and 14/31 (38.7%) air samples Conclusions: Our findings of extensive viral RNA contamination of surfaces and air across a range of acute healthcare settings in the absence of cultured virus underlines the potential risk from environmental contamination in managing COVID-19, and the need for effective use of PPE, physical distancing, and hand/surface hygiene.
