Manufacturer's Description

BacFree 1.0 is effective against many different bacteria and fungi, proven by independent tests at reputable institutes (e.g. Fraunhofer Institute).

The antibacterial BacFree coating is based on the Smart Coating technology developed by NanoCraft. This creates an antibacterial barrier on solid surfaces.

Due to the Smart Coating technology used, surfaces made of wood, metals, alloys or composites can be coated with BacFree 1.0 – only a clean and wettable surface is required. After a short drying time, the antibacterial properties of BacFree 1.0 are immediately apparent on the surface. BacFree 1.0 can also provide surface protection for your materials.

BacFree 1.0 can be used in both spray and dipping processes. This allows layer thicknesses of 200 nanometers (0.2 µm) up to several micrometers (µm) to be adjusted.
BacFree 1.0 complies with both the strict Japanese standard DIN JIZ 2801 and the German standard DIN EN ISO 020743, resulting in a log-reduction of 4 to 7 for Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Koccuria rhizophola.
