The growth of microorganisms on surfaces is an undesirable effect. Microbes lead to spoilage, pose a risk of hygiene and affect the utility of objects.
A antibacterial surface prevents the development and development of bacteria and fungus cultures. The mode of action of the antibacterial surface is based on components incorporated in the coating, which are highly effective against microorganisms but safe for the human organism. An aluminum silicate matrix absorbs surrounding moisture, which then activates various metal ions,
which prevents the formation and growth of bacteria and fungal cultures. Antibacterial surfaces are used, inter alia, in areas of the food, cleanroom and pharmaceutical industries and especially in medicine.
