Touch anti-microbial coatings range can be applied to products in situ with no need to replace or factory apply
TOUCH combines our ground breaking coating technology with anti-microbial qualities has been developed together by Bromoco International and leading biochemists. This virtually invisible coating is suitable for application on-site, or in the factory. This makes Touch Anti-microbial coating systems the first of its kind providing high levels of long term anti-microbial protection.
Anti-microbial is simply the term used to describe something that has the ability to resist the growth of microbes. While the term ‘antibacterial’ refers only to bacteria, Anti-microbial refers to a wider range of organisms including bacteria, moulds, fungi and others. The anti-microbial technology is incorporated into our coating at the time of manufacture. Once incorporated, the anti-microbial additives provides continuous, built-in, anti-microbial protection for the expected lifetime of the product. The silver ions on the surface of a material treated with the coating bind with microbes that come into contact with the surface, disrupting their normal cell function, which stops them from reproducing and results in the death of the cell.
Our biochemist partners includes trained microbiologists and chemists with extensive experience working with anti-microbial and anti-bacterial agents. They are leading professionals in the field of anti-microbial technology and are dedicated to increasing awareness of the danger of harmful microbes and speeding the uptake of microbe-preventative technology across the globe.
Touch Antimicrobial Coatings Test data
Update: Viral testing of TOUCH Antimicrobial Coatings
After a challenging 2013 developing the addition of silver ion to work within our already proven coating. We finally and successfully had it tested for its ability to prevent the growth of bacteria on its surface. With the outbreak of COVID 19 in early 2020 we were confident that the silver ion technology that had already been successfully tested against the HN1 N1 Influenza virus and the Feline coronavirus would be effective against the COVID 19 virus strain.
As the outbreak increased many companies started to sell brand new products claiming they would last for 30 days and some 6 months and that they could kill COVID 19. Most of these claims have since been disproved as in some most cases the products were not even 6-month-old and no product had been subjected to real life durability testing.
This seriously clouded the market and customers became more aware and better educated in the false claims regarding product durability and performances that were being claimed. So, we decided to have our coating tested by a top virologist in a specialist testing facility here in the UK so that we would be able to supply our customers with verified certificated test results.
Most product testing to date has been carried out using the Feline version of the coronavirus, however we wanted to achieve a much higher standard of test to include all enveloped viruses know. The testing was carried out using a surrogate enveloped virus that represents the entire coronavirus family, SARs, H1N1 Influenza virus, CoV2 and COVID 19. The members of the coronaviride are enveloped and have a positive RNA genome. Coronaviruses have a distinct morphology with the outer “Corona” of embedded envelope spikes. These viruses cause a broad spectrum of human disease and are very hardy and can remain active on a surface for many days, in fact during our testing the control sample placed on the unprotected surface only reduce by some 12%
On Friday 25th July 2020 we received our test results showing the effectiveness of our coatings against the viruses previously listed with great success.
As you will see from the table below there was a 100% in the viral count at the end of the test. Proving that surfaces coated with Touch Antimicrobial coatings will vastly reduce the chances of the virus being transmitted through touch. With every minute that passes the viral count is being dramatically reduced therefore less of the virus can be transferred.
We not only regard this as a breakthrough in the battle against COVID 19 but a positive step to future proofing environments and products treated from all known and yet unknown virus and bacteria.

15 MAJOR BENEFITS OF TOUCH ANTIMICROBIAL COATINGS
1. REDUCTION OF BACTERIA BY 99.9
Provides high levels of resistant, even antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria such as MRSA, VRE and CRE cannot survive on protected products
2. ANTI-FINGERPRINT PROTECTION
Provides built-in anti-fingerprint technology which make textured and porous surfaces easier to wipe clean.
3. PREVENTS GROWTH OF MOULD
Prevents the growth of unsightly and unpleasant mould such Aspergillus niger cannot survive.
4. DEFENDING AGAINST VIRUSES
Proven to deactivate the H1N1 influenza virus and enveloped viruses
5. SEALS POROUS SURFACES PREVENTING INGRESS
Seals the surface of porous or textured surfaces making then easier to clean and maintain as well as providing bacterial protection below the surface.
6. REDUCES CHANCE OF CROSS-CONTAMINATION
Provides a cleaner surface which means less microbes to transfer, ultimately reducing cross contamination.
7. RESTORES & ENHANCES
Enhances and restores the original colour and lustre of the substrate it protects
8. REDUCES ODOUR
Reduction of microbes means reduced potential for unpleasant odours, so the surfaces stay fresh, increasing its functional life cycle.
9. INCREASES PRODUCT LIFESPAN
Provides lasting surface protection against microbial colonisation also
minimises material degradation, ultimately extending the lifetime of the product.
10. 24 HOUR PROTECTION
Permanently provides around-the-clock protection against unseen microbes.
11. UV PROTECTION AND COLOUR FADE
Has built in UV blockers that protect the surface from UV degradation and fade as well as preventing the coating from yellowing or discolouring.
12. INDEFINITELY MAINTAINABLE (LIFETIME PROTECTION)
Can be maintained indefinitely due to its self annealing properties
13. GUARANTEED TO NOT CRACK OR PEEL
Will remain flexible coping with the natural expansion and contraction of the surface it is protecting.
14. HIGH SCRATCH RESISTANCE
Has scratch resistances as high as H8 on the “pencil scale” where granite is H6
15. 10 YEAR PROVEN COATING TECHNOLOGY
Coating technology has been used for over 2 decades and has more than twice outlived its original guarantees.
