Furniture, Joinery and Flooring
Concern about the spread of infection isn't just confined to hospitals and catering establishments. Consumers, especially those with small children or elderly relatives, worry about infection in their own homes too.
Up to now there hasn't been a way to protect wood surfaces such as furniture, doors and floors from antibiotic resistant bacteria. But that's now changed with the introduction of a new biocidal wood lacquer called Hygienilac.
Hygienilac, developed by a specialist coatings company Premier Finishes, is the only product of its kind that can provide long term protection against antibiotic resistant bacteria, including MRSA, for the lifetime of the lacquer - which could be as long as 10 years.
Hygienilac is believed to be the first biocidially proactive lacquer to be produced in the UK, and it has been independently certified by one of the most respected microbiological labs in the UK, Bodycote Lawlabs in Birmingham. It is available in both AC and Precat format.
We believe that consumers will be just as receptive to the idea of protected furniture as customers in healthcare and catering. Just think of the money spent on cleaning products for the home! What better marketing message is there than peace of mind.
