Direct Apply Touch Antimicrobial Coating
Touch Antimicrobial coatings
Provide a range of permanent protective coatings that can be applied to existing surface and items without the need for removal or replacement. Our coatings are maintained indefinitely.
The Antimicrobial Technology in TOUCH coating technology are proven to be effective against a virus from the corona virus family
Touch anti-microbial coatings range can be applied to products in situ with no need to replace or factory apply
TOUCH combines our ground breaking coating technology with anti-microbial qualities has been developed together by Bromoco International and leading biochemists. This virtually invisible coating is suitable for application on-site, or in the factory. This makes Touch Anti-microbial coating systems the first of its kind providing high levels of long term anti-microbial protection.
Anti-microbial is simply the term used to describe something that has the ability to resist the growth of microbes. While the term ‘antibacterial’ refers only to bacteria, Anti-microbial refers to a wider range of organisms including bacteria, moulds, fungi and others. The anti-microbial technology is incorporated into our coating at the time of manufacture. Once incorporated, the anti-microbial additives provides continuous, built-in, anti-microbial 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.
Our biochemist partners includes trained microbiologists and chemists with extensive experience working with anti-microbial and anti-bacterial agents. They are leading professionals in the field of anti-microbial technology and are dedicated to increasing awareness of the danger of harmful microbes and speeding the uptake of microbe-preventative technology across the globe.

Coronavirus COVID-19 UPDATE
It’s possible that a person can be infected with the virus by touching a contaminated surface or object, “then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Some coronaviruse’s can live on surfaces for days, but not much is known about the new coronavirus ability to survive on surfaces.
But how long can the new coronavirus linger on surfaces, anyway? The short answer is, we don’t know. But if this new coronavirus resembles other human coronaviruse’s, such as its “cousins” that cause SARS and MERS, it can stay on surfaces such as metal, or plastic etc for as long as Nine days, according to a new study. (In comparison, flu viruses can last on surfaces for only about 48 hours.)
In the new study, researchers analysed several dozen previously published papers on human coronaviruses (other than the new coronavirus) to get a better idea of how long they can survive outside of the body. The authors found that these coronaviruse’s can linger on surfaces for over a week but that some of them don’t remain active for as long at temperatures higher than 86 degrees Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celsius).
It’s also not clear how frequently hands become contaminated with coronaviruse’s after touching a sick patient or contaminated surface, according to the study.
Touch Antiviral Technology makes a product effective against viruses, such as the prevalent H1N1 influenza virus. Like all of Touch Antimicrobial coatings, it is perfect for use in hygiene conscious environments such as hospitals, schools and care homes.
We have a specific coating for each individual substrate such as bare metals, hard plastics, wood and stone which serve to enhance the beauty of the surface they are protecting.
Touch coatings are virtually invisible on the protected surfaces with a scratch resistance 2 points higher than granite. Touch coated metals become fingerprint resistant and can be maintained indefinably
15 MAJOR BENEFITS OF TOUCH ANTIMICROBIAL COATINGS
1. REDUCTION OF BACTERIA BY 99.9
Provides high levels of resistant, even antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria such as MRSA, VRE and CRE cannot survive on protected products
2. ANTI-FINGERPRINT PROTECTION
Provides built-in anti-fingerprint technology which make textured and porous surfaces easier to wipe clean.
3. PREVENTS GROWTH OF MOULD
Prevents the growth of unsightly and unpleasant mould such Aspergillus niger cannot survive.
4. DEFENDING AGAINST VIRUSES
Proven to deactivate the H1N1 influenza virus.
5. SEALS POROUS SURFACES PREVENTING INGRESS
Seals the surface of porous or textured surfaces making then easier to clean and maintain as well as providing bacterial protection below the surface.
6. REDUCES CHANCE OF CROSS-CONTAMINATION
Provides a cleaner surface which means less microbes to transfer, ultimately reducing cross contamination.
7. RESTORES & ENHANCES
Enhances and restores the original colour and lustre of the substrate it protects
8. REDUCES ODOUR
Reduction of microbes means reduced potential for unpleasant odours, so the surfaces stay fresh, increasing its functional life cycle.
9. INCREASES PRODUCT LIFESPAN
Provides lasting surface protection against microbial colonisation also
minimises material degradation, ultimately extending the lifetime of the product.
10. 24 HOUR PROTECTION
Permanently provides around-the-clock protection against unseen microbes.
11. UV PROTECTION AND COLOUR FADE
Has built in UV blockers that protect the surface from UV degradation and fade as well as preventing the coating from yellowing or discolouring.
12. INDEFINITELY MAINTAINABLE (LIFETIME PROTECTION)
Can be maintained indefinitely due to its self annealing properties
13. GUARANTEED TO NOT CRACK OR PEEL
Will remain flexible coping with the natural expansion and contraction of the surface it is protecting.
14. HIGH SCRATCH RESISTANCE
Has scratch resistances as high as H8 on the “pencil scale” where granite is H6
15. 10 YEAR PROVEN COATING TECHNOLOGY
Coating technology has been used for over 2 decades and has more than twice outlived its original guarantees.
