SymbiCoat™ Monomers: Making Chlorine Work Better, Longer
SymbiCoat™ monomers are unmatched in their ability to rapidly and repeatedly uptake sodium hypochlorite and stabilize it on surfaces, to allow the sodium hypochlorite to do what it does best: kill microbes fast. Sodium hypochlorite is a potent, broad-spectrum disinfectant, but in liquid form, its activity dissipates quickly. SymbiCoat™ monomers allow chlorine to remain on the surface for extended periods of time, so that the stabilized chlorine can continue to provide microbial protection.
Where Clean is Critical – choose SymbiCoat™.
Our SymbiCoat™ product family is a library of “rechargeable” monomers designed for integration into coating formulations and resin systems, for application to metal, textile and plastic surfaces. Our highly-effective molecules represent a step-change in efficiently stabilizing and storing chlorine on surfaces such that the chlorine can then exert residual efficacy against a spectrum of microbes, including bacteria, viruses and fungi. Simply put, the chlorine stays in place until a microbe “lands” on the surface. At the point of contact, SymbiCoat™ monomers allow an extremely rapid “stimulus-response” release of chlorine, such that the agency-registered chlorine can achieve a total 6-log (99.9999%) kill of microbes in as little as 5 minutes – significantly faster than market-leading silver and quaternary ammonium-based technologies.
SymbiCoat™ has been engineered for use in for wet or dry environments. By incorporating SymbiCoat™ monomers into a coating resin, the chlorine stabilizing and storing capability of SymbiCoat™ monomers becomes a permanent and integral function of the polymer or coating. SymbiCoat™ functionality is engineered to remain intact as long as the coating remains on the surface.
What Is The SymbiCoat™ Difference?
- Chlorine stabilized on a surface using SymbiCoat™ supports significantly faster microbial kill than market-leading silver technologies
- Significantly faster recharge, with significantly less sodium hypochlorite, than previous generation rechargeable technologies
- Inert & non-leaching, for longer functionality than market-leading technologies
- Supports the use of chlorine, an oxidizing active ingredient that does not induce microbial resistance
- Versatile – for use in various resin systems; wet/submerged* or dry environments**
*Note: submerged environments must contain a minimal chlorine concentration or be subject to pulse dose chlorine in order to support proper functioning of SymbiCoat™ monomers.
** Note: SymbiCoat-containing surfaces must be rinsed or sprayed with a sodium hypochlorite solution prior to use to permit the chlorine to “attach” to the surface.
