Protection from degradation or contamination by micro-organisms, whether bacteria, fungi, molds or algae, has become increasingly important to consumers and industrial users alike.

Today’s product quality standards demand clean and hygienic surfaces - from building materials, pipes and interior components to high-touch surfaces in automobiles and industrial environments. SANAFOR® safely and effectively imparts hygienic characteristics to products. Incorporation of SANAFOR® into plastics, coatings or foams cost-effectively delivers the additional value of antimicrobial protection.

Materials containing SANAFOR® have been extensively tested using international standard methods. SANAFOR® treatment has been proven to reduce the overall level of both Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria on surfaces by up to 99.9999%. Also, fungal kill rates approaching 100% have been achieved using standardized test methods.
