SustainHygen

SustainHygen

General Paints has developed a range of coating solutions which were designed as a secondary defence against commonly occurring bacteria such as the hospital Superbug MRSA and E-Coli. The SustainHygen range offers an advanced technology which is designed to actively fight destructive microbes on a large number of surfaces and has been developed in conjunction with the Centre for Research Engineering Surface Technology (CREST) and Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT). SustainHygen has been specifically designed to perform over an extended period due to its extra durable formulation in addition to the patented silver ion release mechanism.

The SustainHygen range utilizes the centuries-known antiseptic properties of silver. In Roman times, water vessels were made from silver due to its purification properties. Silver ions are non-toxic to humans and have several beneficial properties which make it an excellent ingredient for use as an anti-microbial material. It is thermally stable, shows broad spectral activity against many target organisms and is stable against UV/visible radiation.

SustainHygen has also been independently tested for scrub resistance. The scrub resistance was performed according to the British Standard BS7719 up to 2,000 cycles. Three different scrub agents were employed: 70% isopropyl alcohol, Hibicet and Soludaz. The antibacterial testing was based on the international Japanese standard, JISZ2801 against a clinical strain of MRSA which has caused at least one fatality.
