Antimicrobial Coated Handrails
Safety and reliability are two of our target goals at Carbis Solutions and we are excited to introduce PPG SilverSan™ anti-microbial powder-coating to our coating process.
The anti-microbial-protected powder is treated with silver* ionic technology which is specially formulated to allow the coating to slowly release silver ions, providing an invisible layer of protection from microbial growth.
Why is this important? Microbes are small living cells that can only be seen through a microscope. They include bacteria, fungi, and algae, that can lead to the creation of foul odors, discoloration, and the formation of bio-film surfaces. Microbes can also degrade or corrode metal substrates.
Antimicrobial is limited to the treated surface
The use of these products does not protect users of any treated surface against food-borne or disease-causing bacteria, viruses, germs, or other organisms. This process inhibits microbe growth and protects the painted surface, increasing product longevity.
PPG SilverSan™ antimicrobial powder-coating is now the standard for our top handrails for all Carbis gangways.
