STERITOUCH

Steritouch technology is a protected system enhanced material comprising a sanitizing agent throughout. Electronic handheld devices are crawling with all types of bacteria and other infections causing germs.

Steritouch technology was specifically formulated to retard the growth potential of bacteria that thrive on our heat-generated handheld devices. The silver technology poly jacket is to an electronic device - what a glove is to a hand! The sleeves embodiment allows for complete enclosure and device protection from germ invasion.

HOW EFFECTIVE IS IT?

Products containing Steritouch are routinely tested at an independent laboratory and are typically proven to be at least 99.9% effective against MRSA and E.coli (Test reports available on request).

For application requiring protection against other organisms, testing has also been carried out against Candida, Legionella, and campylobacter. Steritouch is also effective against biofilm, the slimy substance caused by clusters of bacterial cells adhering to a hydrated surface. Biofilm is responsible for slipper bath mats, clogged drains, and even dental plaque, and can be very difficult to remove retrospectively.

Several customer products have been subjected to accelerated mould tests, including bathroom sealants and grouts, which demonstrated zero mould growth even after 10 years of simulated ageing.

Will it wear off?

Once Steritouch has been incorporated into a material it is essentially there to stay. Recent independent testing of a new paint range demonstrated no loss in antimicrobial performance even after 10 years of accelerated aging. 

Ionic silver-based additives will not lose efficacy due to leaching or migration, and since they are evenly dispersed throughout the material even scratches and abrasion do not affect the antimicrobial performance.

Importantly, Steritouch additives are unaffected by cleaning chemicals such as chlorine bleach, disinfectants, and alcohol. Even harsh industrial products like MEK (methyl ethyl ketone) do not diminish the antimicrobial properties of products containing Steritouch.
