Stop bacterial growth on all Fastand products

Free on the whole range of Fastand products

From our research center we have created a new era in the world of surfaces for events and trade fairs. All our white products are in fact made with Antimicrobial8 to guarantee not only the quality but also the protection from bacteria of all our products.
We have introduced this new powder paint to our production cycle to increase anti-bacterial protection: from today, in fact, all of our products with a white surface are treated with Europolveri-produced Antimicrobial8.

The surface finish however remains of the highest quality and constant in Pantone Cool Gray 1C and Ral-9010 without any price increase.

Responsible and anti-bacterial.

The concern arising from the possible spread of bacterial infections and the aggressiveness and resistance shown by certain bacteria, is causing an increasingly widespread and differentiated demand for work and meeting environments equipped with safe equipment, machinery and furnishings and protected from possible bacterial proliferation .

Test results

The “Antimicrobial8” treatment was subjected to antibacterial efficacy tests performed in biological laboratories according to the JIS Z 2801: 2000 standards using two of the most common bacteria:
In order to give greater value to the test, the surfaces subject to the tests were previously subjected to a heat treatment aimed at simulating an aging of ten years of use of the product indoors.

By placing a colony with a known content of bacteria on the surfaces of the coatings under examination, the count of the still active bacteria is performed after 24 hours.
The different proliferation between the product treated with a normal powder paint and “Antimicrobial8” actually establishes the antibacterial efficacy of the product.

International certificates

The presence of the antibacterial agent in the “Antimicrobial8” formulation causes a slow and constant release of silver ions over time.

This gives the treated articles marked antimicrobial characteristics which effectively prevent bacterial proliferation.
It should be noted that the inhibitory characteristics of the bacterial proliferation of “Antimicrobial8” and the guarantee of duration of efficacy do not eliminate
the need for constant and scrupulous cleaning treatments of the products.

Data sheet

Powder based on saturated carboxylated saturated polyester resins and hardeners alternative to TGIC selected for their external resistance characteristics.
Formulated with pigments and additives specifically chosen for their high resistance to UV rays and atmospheric agents. The specific feature of the series
ANTIMICROBIAL 8 is the presence in formulation of an inorganic antibacterial agent that gives the product marked characteristics
Properties and uses
Powder suitable for painting products in which the elimination and control of bacterial proliferation are of fundamental importance. To
example: machinery and equipment for the pharmaceutical or food industry, controlled contamination environments, sanitary equipment and furnishings and
hospital, equipment and products for the community, etc. In order to ensure good protection it is necessary to apply the powder at an average thickness of
70-80 microns.

Preparation of the support
The products adhere to all metal substrates as long as they are dry, clean and degreased. To prolong the resistance to corrosion it is advisable to carry out a
suitable chemical pretreatment of the surface according to the nature of the metal support.
Product applicable by electrostatic generator guns with voltages between 40-90 kV. Where present in the description the abbreviation “TS” the products are
can also be used with the use of triboelectric guns.
Differences in thickness of the applied paint can lead to variations in the surface appearance of the hardened paint. In the case of effect products
special the use of recovery is not recommended except for bonded products (BOND).
