The word antimicrobial is a generic term that includes the antibacterial and anti-mold properties. A bacterial species is a distinct organism with certain characteristic features and can be found on any surface; molds and fungi can grow on aluminium sheet in a humid environment because it helps the proliferation of spores. For this reason, we can affirm that in special environment, could be very important to use an aluminium product coated with an antimicrobial lacquer.
Antimicrobial coating helps preserve the durability of your final product and the hygienic conditions of air-conditioned rooms such as surgeries, white rooms, labs and shopping malls. Italcoat can supply aluminum coated with antimicrobial lacquer to be used in HVAC systems. In particular, our coated aluminium can be used in foamed panels for air ventilation ducting systems and fins for air conditioners because our lacquer has hydrophobic properties too.
Italcoat coating has a lot of advantages: it can be supplied in flat and embossed version; it’s resistance to UV-rays and corrosion.
