Long Term Antimicrobial Surface Treatment

Bacteria and Moisture

Listeria bacteria behaves similar to mould, preferring moist conditions, and can be found in soil, water and some animals. Mould problems differ from bacteria problems in that mould fungi are introduced and spread in production premises in a different way than bacteria or yeast. Bacteria and yeast are primarily introduced via raw materials, persons or contaminated equipment. Mould and fungi are usually spread in the air and as a result they are often a bigger problem to deal with. The ventilation system may be a place where the mould fungus can establish itself and reproduce, and the spores are then sent around the premises in the air from the system. Currents of air caused by opening doors or by people and equipment moving around can also contribute to the spread of mould. Visible moulds in damp parts of the premises including ceilings, walls and joints can also be easily spread to the products. Moisture or dampness in hard to reach areas can harbour listeria bacteria and mould spores, which can lead to outbreaks and increase risk within food safety areas.

Anti-Microbial Coating

MicroClear Plus is a revolutionary, VOC-free, water-reducible antimicrobial clear coating. Formulated for long term protection against bacterial and viral contamination the amine functional silane actives are also highly effective against moss, mould and fungus infestation.

The unique blend of polymer dispersions in MicroClear Plus has been designed for maximum adhesion over most interior and exterior substrates and painted surfaces without changing the underlying colour or impacting on the visual appearance.

The quaternary actives are bonded into the polymer matrix ensuring that with regular cleaning they will stay active for up to 3 years.

MicroClear Plus contains no BAC or DDAC and can be used in areas where the use of these compounds is restricted.

Formulated to impart long lasting pathogenic control in all the areas that are either difficult to access or unable to undergo regular cleaning.

It can be used inside or outside and is ideally suited for walls and ceilings of cool stores, transportation containers, food processing areas, cooling and storage towers

  • Dairy – sheds, plants, warehouses, storage tanks, tankers and cheese processing.
  • Food Production – Processing, packing storage
  • Wineries/Breweries – warehouse storage tanks and cool stores.
  • Poultry – breeding and processing facilities, cool stores.
  • Seafood – catching, processing, storage and transportation.
  • Horticulture – processing, packaging sheds and transport.
  • Abattoirs – processing, packing storage transportation.
