Antimicrobial PVC inhibits the growth of micro-organisms. It is created by blending or coating PVC with other materials which are known to be resistant to bug and virus growth. This material often involves silver, which has well-documented antimicrobial properties. It prevents bacteria from settling and growing as it may on normal surfaces.
The benefits of antimicrobial PVC in hospitals and healthcare environments are clear. By preventing the ability for bugs to thrive on its surfaces, it is an ideal material to use in places where minimising the spread of disease is vitally important. Antimicrobial PVC can be an important tool in protecting patients, healthcare professionals, and hospital visitors from unnecessary exposure to potentially dangerous bacteria.
Quantum Flooring Solutions now offers the option of antimicrobial PVC for its flexible PVC profiles. Quantum’s version is created with a silver ion additive which is blended into the PVC before the profile is extruded. This ensures the best possible protection from microbial bacteria, while being easy to install and to maintain.
