Antimicrobial Coating

We have developed a range of high quality antimicrobial coatings for professional use. The products have the following features in common:

  • easy-to-clean and
  • easy-to-disinfect / antimicrobial

What does that mean?

Products, which claim to be easy-to-clean are widely available on the market. They are commonly used in hygienic challenging environments, such as food-industry, hospitals, pharma production, med-tech etc. The surface density and structure hinders dirt to attach to the surface and therefore the removal is much easier, resulting in lower cost for the customer.

Easy-do-disinfect however is a feature, which Novapura has developed: Sufaces, which have to be disinfected on a regular basis are the target area for such coatings. If such areas are coated with our coatings it will

  • boost to effect of the commonly used disinfectant
  • prolong the the effect of the disinfectant

The benefit of the customer is an economic one and one, wich affects EHS (environment health and safety). Economic: less disinfectant will be used. EHS: since the surface is disinfectant during a longer time period  the disinfection gap may be closed or at least brought to a minimum. The result is a reduction in cross contamination incidents.

Novapura has combined the two features, resulting in a coating with unparalleled performance.

Our antimicrobial coating: tests against SARS Covid and other micro-organism

antimicrobial coating

We are one of the few companies, who has developed a coating, which has been successfully tested against the SARS Covid virus.We have tested our coatings against a wide range or other organism. Coat-it AM has been the product, which underwent the most severe test program:

  • 10 strains of bacteria
  • antimicrobial long term effect (exposing the coating to polar and non-polar fluids for more than 200 hours)
  • mold (see the following time elapsed video)
  • The latest test has been the effect against SARS Covid (Wuhan strain). The test was a full success!
  • Test in a Swiss Hospital – you can see the results in the following blog post. Different high touch areas have been coated-. The contamination of the coated areas has been compared with non-coated areas.


Apart from the widely performed brush, air brush, spraying and coli coating, our coat-it AM can also be applied in an easy-to-use cartridge. Contact us for more information.

In the following blog post, you can see some pictures of a kitchen in a 5 star hotel, which was coated with coat-it AM.
