BerlaGuard: antibacterial coating from Berlac with permanent protection against bacteria and fungi

19.05.2021|

With BerlaGuard, Berlac AG is launching an antibacterial 2K PUR clearcoat system in accordance with ISO 22196 whose antibacterial additives, in contrast to classic biocides such as silver ions, permanently prevent the colonization of bacteria and fungi by means of purely physical mechanisms.

The global spread of bacteria is accelerating. Their number is constantly increasing. The result is an increase in multi-resistant bacteria.

Surfaces that are antibacterially equipped with BerlaGuard help to meet the increased hygiene requirements and counteract the spread of infectious diseases and resistances.

Biocides - how they work.

Classic biocides, such as silver ions additives in antibacterial coating systems commonly used on the market, work through antimicrobial activity, i.e. through migration of toxic substances through the surface into the microbes. By disturbing the metabolism or by interacting with the genetic material, the germs are killed. Due to this constant degradation of the agent, the antimicrobial protection is lost over time..

BerlaGuard: how it works.

The antibacterial additives used in BerlaGuard work through permanent charge shifts on the surface without any loss of active material. They cause a kind of alternating dynamic, similar to a «vibrating» protective shield, which makes it impossible for bacteria and fungi to settle and thus prevents the formation of a biofilm. This principle is purely physical and is therefore not subject to the BPR (Biocidal Product Regulation).

BerlaGuard is available as a 2K PUR clearcoat system in high-gloss and matt variants for indoor and outdoor use and is ideally suited for applications such as remote controls, cordless telephones, WC push plates, sanitary fittings, light switches and surfaces that are generally difficult to disinfect.
