99.9% germ free surface
dp-BioCote Quartz is a surface material with a combination of distinctive surface properties. The surface is highly resistant to abrasion, far exceeding the abrasion resistance of standard high pressure worktops. Additionally the surface is resistant to common liquids known to usually leave a mark.
The product is extremely hard wearing and very resistant to damage from other materials. One of the most significant properties of this innovative sheet material is the inclusion of the antibacterial additive from BioCote® that gives up to a 99.9% germ free surface*.
BioCote® technology protects the surface of the product from microbes including mould, fungi and of course bacteria - meaning the product surface is more hygienic and resistant to the growth of staining and odour causing microbes which may prematurely degrade the material. Both in laboratory and real life conditions BioCote® has been proven effective against a wide range of clinically significant bacteria including MRSA, MSSA, E. coli, legionella pneumophila, salmonella and the H1N1 virus amongst many others. Once added to a product BioCote® technology starts to work immediately, tests have shown significant decreases in microbial contamination within just 15 minutes and reductions of up to 99.5% in 2 hours. Very significantly BioCote® works for the expected lifetime of the product.
dp-BioCote Quartz can also be used anywhere where a high abrasion resistant surface is required with the added benefit of BioCote® antibacterial surface properties.
