Non-heavy-metal antimicrobial technology for water-based coatings

LapisShield is non-heavy-metal technology designed to integrate seamlessly antimicrobial functionality into any water-based coating formulation. This broad-spectrum antimicrobial technology is proven to inhibit bacterial growth by up to 99.99 %, and prevents the growth of mold and mildew, helping to protect treated surfaces from various sources of microbial degradation.

LapisShieldis the latest coatings innovation from Microban International. Manufacturers can enhance their coatings with the power of product protection against the detrimental effects of microbes – including stains, odours and premature degradation – extending the lifetime of coated products. LapisShield offers superior quality and stability by optimising processing and manufacturing requirements. It also allows coating batches to be stored for future use, preventing unnecessary waste and optimising resources for more sustainable coatings manufacturing.

Antimicrobial coatings from Microban International work around the clock to prevent the growth of bacteria, mould and mildew

LapisShield is specifically designed to meet the needs of the water-based coatings industry, a sector that is constantly striving for clearer and more environmentally friendly systems that create a seamless finish. This technology is compatible with thin coating systems and offers enhanced UV stability, limiting impacts on the optical properties of water-based coatings, and making them suitable for transparent glass or plastic applications.
