Antimicrobial Additives* for Paints & Coatings

Premium antimicrobial protection for paints & coatings

BioCote® supplies high-performing antimicrobial additives to leading global paint and coatings manufacturers looking to enhance their offering and truly differentiate their product range.

Introducing an additive will not affect the color of a paint or coating, the finish, or the way the product needs to be applied. In fact, it will actually increase durability and useability of the protected paint or coating – and staining, unpleasant odors and material degradation will be minimized. The technology will work 24/7 for the expected lifetime of the paint or coating.

Applications for antimicrobial additives in paints & coatings

 Antimicrobial additives can be easily and cost-effectively manufactured directly into all types of paints, coatings, inks, lacquers and varnishes – whether solvent-, water-based, liquid, powder, and whether used internally or externally. They can then be applied to surfaces or items such as walls, woodwork, doors, furniture, lighting, handles, medical equipment, paper and many more.

Additives are formulated to suit the type of paint or coating being treated, but also the material it may be applied to, the environment it is designed for, the specific requirements of the manufacturer and end user, and the production process in place.
