A healthy concept...
Significant extra hygienic protection is guaranteed with Biosan® Hygiene Coatings for walls, ceilings and floors. Biosan® contains the unique antibacterial agent BACTRON ™, which surrounds and partly penetrates the resin and pigments;
The active ingredient of BACTRON™ has been scientifically proven to kill most types of bacteria, including ‘super bugs’, by a variety of different mechanisms.
Unlike some other biocides and antimicrobial additives BACTRON™ is not classified as harmful to humans. The active ingredient has food contact approval in the USA and EU.
Biosan® with BACTRON™, supported by good housekeeping practices, is the ideal solution for the maintenance of a hygienic environment in areas where cleanliness is of utmost importance, e.g. hospitals, food processing plants, kitchens, dairies, breweries, abattoirs, leisure centres and schools.
Where surfaces are subjected to severe wear or vigorous cleaning, the antibacterial properties of Biosan® are constantly replenished, providing on-going protection against the harmful effects of bacteria throughout the normal service life of the coating.
Biosan® products are formulated using unique modern water based technology. When used in accordance with instructions, Biosan® is entirely safe. All Biosan® products are classified as non-flammable. Most Biosan® products are rated Class 0 surface spread of flame based on BS 476: Part 6 & 7.
Bactericidal action can be quantified and shown graphically. The image on the left of two Petri dishes compares the ‘kill’ rate of Biosan® containing BACTRON™ (blue) with a control (red) when challenged with Staphylococcus aurous. It uses a logarithmic scale to show that Biosan® with BACTRON™ kills 99% of bacteria during the initial 48 hours. After 7 days the bacteria cannot be detected on the BACTRON™ protected sample whereas significant numbers of potentially pathogenic (disease causing) bacteria are still surviving on the unprotected coating.

Practical coverage depends on many factors such as porosity and roughness of the substrate and material losses during application.
Do not apply in full sun or too hot conditions, to avoid that the product dries too fast and consequently to avoid a decreased flow. The use of Biosan products does not exclude the necessity to clean and disinfect on a normal and regular basis.
The unique antimicrobial action of Biosan® has been independently tested and verified by a DEFRA approved laboratory!
