Touch Antimicrobial coating

The antimicrobial technology is incorporated into our coating at the time of manufacture. Once incorporated, the antimicrobial additives provide continuous, built-in, antimicrobial protection for the expected lifetime of the product. The silver ions on the surface of a material treated with the coating bind with microbes that come into contact with the surface, disrupting their normal cell function, which stops them from reproducing and results in the death of the cell.

Continuously providing around the clock protection. Once the environment is vacated the coated areas will self isolate.

Huge coverage of over 35 m2 per litre with a minimum 12 month period before re-application is required.

Proven durability of 18 months on high traffic areas and over 5 years on seldom touched areas.

Hard film coating with a scratch resistance of H7 on the HB pencil scale where granite is H6.

How It Works?

Touch Antimicrobial Coating


The silver ion technology within TOUCH Coatings works 24-hours a day, for the expected lifetime of the product, to provide integral protection against microbes.

Laboratory tests and real life studies show that microbe levels on Touch coatings protected products are significantly reduced.

In fact, 80% of microbes are eradicated within 15 minutes and up to 99.99% are gone within 2 hours.


Silver-Ion technology creates surfaces upon which 99.9% of microbes cannot survive. Laboratory and real-life testing has proved that the technology reduces microbes by 80% in just 15 minutes and 99.9% in just two hours.

Working 24 hours,. Touch technology effectively fights a wide variety of microbes thanks to the silver ion technology that has been proven effective against MRSA, E.Coli and even at deactivating the Influenza (H1N1) virus.


There are four main types of antimicrobial additive, based on Silver-Ion, Copper, Zinc and Organic technologies.

Our range of antimicrobial products use Silver-Ion antimicrobial additives which are suitable for deployment in a broad range of materials and applications, including paints, coatings, textiles, polymers and other material types.
