Antibact powder coating

Nip bacteria in the bud


Effective on any surface for decades.

Hygiene, In and Out

Protect the metal surface from bacteria in internal and external environments.


Antibacterial properties tested by an external lab in Japan.

What is it?

Decoral® Antibact is an innovative series of powder coatings with additives that inhibit the proliferation of bacteria and microorganisms on powder coated surfaces.
The antibacterial agent is homogeneously mixed with powder composition. It is not an additive sold separately but it is part of this special formulation.


Design meets functionality

This product is compatible with all Decoral® powder coatings such as anti-graffiti, bendable, non-slip and can be matched with any decorative effect to get a beautiful look: matt, glass, glossy, metallic, fluorescent, photoluminescent etc.


Antibacterial finishes have been tested in a laboratory in Japan which has certified their efficacy against Escherichia Coli and Staphylococcus Aureus.

They were also subject to specific accelerated weathering tests simulating a 10-year exposure to assess their durability. As shown by test results antibacterial efficacy did not change.


Antibacterial coating

An antimicrobial coating is applied to the surface of the device to reduce implant-related infections. They can be either passive or active, depending on whether antimicrobials are administered locally.

passive coating can prevent bacterial adhesion and kill bacteria on contact. The physical and chemical properties of coatings, such as surface roughness, wettability, and conductivity, have a significant impact on bacterial behavior. By creating an anatase-rich crystalline surface by anodization and heat treatment, we were able to significantly reduce the adhesion of the three types of bacteria, while cellular responses in soft and hard tissues were not adversely affected. Surfaces coated with certain polymers such as poly (ethylene glycol) and poly (methacrylic acid) have also shown their ability to inhibit bacterial adhesion. Passive coatings are preferred because they do not induce the development of bacterial resistance, but their antimicrobial efficacy is limited and depends on the type of bacteria.

active coatings deliver antimicrobial agents such as antibiotics, bioactive molecules and inorganic antimicrobials to the surrounding tissue. Many antibiotics have been incorporated into bioceramic or biodegradable polymer coatings, including gentamicin, amoxicillin, carbenicillin, cephalothin, cefamandol, vancomycin, and tobramycin. Despite having a broad antimicrobial spectrum, it is difficult to achieve optimal release kinetics with minimal adverse effects on cell function and tissue integrity. In addition, potential drug resistance in bacteria is another concern.

Antimicrobial coating

Antimicrobial coatings are chemical applications that stop the growth of disease-causing microbes. While other coatings offer corrosion resistance, antimicrobial coatings protect against a wide range of bacteria, mold and mildew.

Growth of microorganisms on painted surfaces may cause discoloration or damage to the paint film. This reduces the integrity of the coating. Coatings containing antimicrobial agents inhibit the growth of these microorganisms, such as mold and mildew, and protect the film itself from deterioration. In addition, antibacterial agents inhibit the growth of bacterial odors.

By definition, “antimicrobial” refers to anything harmful to microorganisms. Additives introduced into the coating during the manufacturing process provide resistance to microorganisms. For example, additives such as silver ions inhibit bacterial growth. Durable coating withstands harsh environments, exposure to water, or excessive washing. The primary way to limit bacterial cell growth on a surface is to prevent cells from attaching to that surface in the first place. Some coatings that achieve this include chlorhexidine-incorporated hydroxyapatite coatings, chlorhexidine-containing polylactide coatings on anodized surfaces, and chlorhexidine polymer and calcium phosphate coatings.

Antimicrobial powder coating

Most IFS powder coatings can be formulated with antimicrobial activity. These clever coatings use silver ions to inhibit the growth of mold and spoilage-causing microorganisms on powder coatings. In addition, since silver is a naturally occurring element, the silver ions used are environmentally safe and protect against microbes that cause product odor, mold and spoilage without being highly toxic to humans or animals. shown to do. Designed for a variety of applications including laboratories, bathrooms, hospitals, schools, child care facilities, public transport, playground equipment, handrails, fitness equipment, high traffic areas and more.

How antimicrobial powder coating works

The IFS coating is treated with silver ions that inhibit the growth of cellular enzymes on the coating in the presence of moisture. Antimicrobial product protection can be added to most IFS formulations and coatings retain antimicrobial product protection for extended periods of time.

See the applications

Apply the antibacterial formulation to metal surfaces or objects frequently touched. An example? Doors and windows, handles, tables, shelves, handrails, street furniture and small accessories.
