Long term antimicrobial coatings are currently serving as a welcomed relief for customers worldwide. The technology remains active on surfaces all day everyday without the need for constant reapplication.
As a business owner, why should I apply this product to my premises?
By combining Nordic Chem Antimicrobial coating with regular cleaning and disinfecting, a premise can be sure it is implementing the highest standard of surface defence against harmful microbes.
My business is closed at the moment due to Covid-19. Should I apply this product before my premises reopens or after?
We strongly recommend applying Nordic Chem Antimicrobial before your business reopens. This will provide the applicator with a clean and empty space for application. Applying the coating before people potentially bring in contamination is a sensible action plan.
Does the product terminate enveloped viruses?
Yes, it is effective against this type of virus as the coating terminates by puncturing the cell wall and rendering the virus unable to infect. Studies have been shown to prove this and are available to view on request.
Have there been tests done?
Yes, there are several tests done on the active ingredients by independent laboratories. We can provide these on request.
How long does your coating last?
Our antimicrobial coating has proven to be active at 90 days after being applied on the surface.
How is your coating removed?
Our coating will not be removed by normal cleaning or disinfectants, it can only be removed with abrasion.
What does Nordic Chem antimicrobial coating protect against?
Our coating protects your surfaces from a range of viruses, bacteria, mold, algaes and odors. Also, the coating acts as a sacrificial layer of protection for the surface itself, protecting against micro-scratches and general wear and tear.
Is your antimicrobial coating a chemical kill process?
No, the technology that our coating uses is a mechanical kill, creating a very thin layer of “nano-spikes” that penetrate the virus/bacteria that comes in contact with the coating, destroying the cell.
Once it has adhered to the surface, does it leach any chemicals into the environment?
No, once Nordic Chem Antimicrobial coating has bonded to the surface it creates a durable layer of protection which provides an inhospitable environment for pathogens, by mechanical means, and the coating does not leach any chemicals into the environment.
What is the difference between Nordic Chem Antimicrobial coating and a standard disinfectant?
The major difference is this product does not evaporate after being applied, the coating bonds to the surface it has been applied to for 90 days.
What environments can this coating be applied to?
Our antimicrobial coating is a universal coating, meaning it is suited for all kinds of industries and environments, including: indoor and outdoor environments.
Are there other long term coating solutions for eliminating bacterias and viruses?
The only other technology that is currently available for long term surface protection are coatings that are terminating the pathogens by infecting the microorganism with a chemical agent such as silve, copper or zinc. Nordic Chem has chosen to utilize its technology as it is highly effective without leaching chemicals into the environment once the coating has cured.
What is the program that is also offered with the coating?
After the installation of the Nordic Chem Antimicrobial coating, the business owner of the premises is entitled to the following as an ongoing free service:
1. Awareness stickers to be placed in the premises.
2. An online banner which links to a webpage explaining how works the technology and can be placed on the business’ website or social media channels. It is designed to educate the visitors on the surface protection measures your business has taken.
3. 7 days per week phone and email customer support provided to the business and its occupants.
What can your coating be applied to?
Our coating will adhere to a wide variety of surfaces including metals, plastics, ceramic, carpet, timber, and upholstery. Nordic Chem antimicrobial is colourless and odourless by nature, therefore it does not stain fabric materials.
Does your coating leave a residue behind?
No, our antimicrobial coating provides its users with an invisible shield of protection that is undetectable to the naked eye.
Is this a replacement to regular cleaning and disinfecting?
No, this is an additional level of protection that does not only eliminate harmful microorganisms on application but continues to eliminate them all day every day.
How long does it take for the coating to cure?
After a few minutes the coating will be dry to the touch, however, we recommend you allow it 2 hours for the coating to completely bond to the surface it has been applied to.
Is the product approved for use in the EU?
Yes, we have ensured to be registered in the majority of the European countries and are following the guidelines set out by the BPR (Biocidal Products Regulation).
What is the recommended application method?
Nordic Chem provides different application devices. Please contact your local distributor for more information.
How much ready-to-use can be made from 5 litres of concentrate?
After diluting Nordic Chem Antimicrobial coating concentrate with a 1:4 ratio with distilled water, you will get a total of 25 litres of ready-to-use product.
How much surface coverage can I protect from 25 litres of ready-to-use product?
This will depend on the application method used:
– with an electrostatic sprayer the total coverage is 1250m2.
– with a ULV fogger the total coverage is 1000m2.
