Redbacks Cushioning Technology can be made from an antimicrobial Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) that can attack micro-organisms at source preventing the spread of harmful bacteria – an essential consideration in all medical environments.
The antimicrobial properties are incredibly durable, long lasting, highly active and will not wash off. This is particularly important for public places, public transport, hospitals and across the food services industry where there is a constant risk of cross infection and food poisoning incidents which could seriously damage brand reputation.
These TPEs have been independently tested and proven to kill >99.9% of bacteria when tested against the recognised ISO 22196 method.
They are effective against:
- Pseudomonas Aeroginosa
- Salmonella and many other harmful bacteria
Furthermore, some bacteria can cause stains, odours, embrittlement and product deterioration, but the use of antimicrobial TPEs helps prevent these issues in Redbacks Cushioning Technology products, making them safe and non toxic for humans.
