Antimicrobial Coatings Guide_Linetec

The paper explains that antimicrobial-based coatings create an inhospitable environment for damage-causing microorganisms. These coatings prevent or limit the growth of mold, mildew and other microbes that can produce unpleasant odors and unsightly stains on metal building products’ surfaces. The protection that is built into these antimicrobial coatings during the manufacturing process works continuously for the useful lifetime of the coating.

Antimicrobial coatings can be specified for high-touch, architectural aluminum products’ exterior and interior finished surfaces, such as handrails, doors, windows, curtainwall, entranceways, light shelves, wall panels and column covers. These antimicrobial finishes can be especially important for high-traffic public buildings such as health care facilities, educational campuses, apartment buildings and senior living facilities.

The paper describes additional project and product applications for antimicrobial coatings and explains:

  • What types of microbes are common and how they grow
  • How antimicrobial agents work
  • How antimicrobial coatings are applied to meet the most stringent standards
  • How antimicrobial coatings’ effectiveness is tested and proven
  • How to specify antimicrobial coatings for the highest level of performance
  • What additional qualities to consider when selecting high-performance, durable, architectural coatings

Please remember that you do not have to choose between exceptional performance and an attractive, colorful appearance. With more than 30,000 colors in our library of finishes, Linetec offers antimicrobial coatings in standard and custom colors, and micas and metallic coatings.
