Antimicrobial Powder Coating now Included in the Automated Paint Process
For effective, long-term protection from germs and bacteria
Effective 1st November 2020, Ergonomic Solutions has introduced antimicrobial powder coating to its automated painting process. It is being applied, as standard, to all SpacePole® metal products ordered in black with the –02 suffix.
The IGP-DURA®care antimicrobial powder coating is an innovative product. Using the well-known antimicrobial effect of Sanitized® Silver, it prevents the growth of bacteria and fungi, and prevents strong germ growth between cleaning cycles, guaranteeing low bacterial attack. IGP-DURA®care surfaces provide an ideal complement to regular disinfection measures.
How does it work?
IGP-DURA®care surfaces provide an ideal complement to regular disinfection measures.
The special paint additive is activated by moisture (air) to develop its antimicrobial effect. Existing bacteria are continuously inactivated through the sanitised hygiene function, keeping the surface continuously clean.
Which products will be coated/painted?
Products painted with the black -02 suffix will have an antimicrobial coating. This includes our POS Essentials, payment and tablet solutions.
Will it look the same?
Visually there is no difference to the look of the finished product.
Is it guaranteed?
There is no impact on any functionality and products with this coating are guaranteed through their warranty period. The coating is a long-term solution.
Testing and accreditation
Both Ergonomic Solutions and the manufacturer, Sanitized AG, based in Switzerland, have carried out intensive testing of the product on our metal SpacePole range, and we are now officially accredited.
