Linetec offers antimicrobial protection for architectural products

Linetec introduces the use of antimicrobial protection for high-touch, architectural metal products’ exterior and interior surfaces, such as doors, windows, curtainwall, entrances, panels and column covers.

Antimicrobial protection is infused into select polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) finishes to inhibit the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria on the coating of aluminum surfaces for health care facilities, educational campuses and other buildings.As a fluoropolymer finish containing a minimum of 70% PVDF resin, this three-coat system meets requirements of AAMA 2605, the most stringent, high-performance specification for architectural coatings.

“Continually investing in industry-leading innovation, Linetec provides our customers’ products with protection that exceeds other conventional finishes,” says Jon Close, Linetec’s vice president of sales. “Anywhere the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria is a concern, architectural aluminum manufacturers can benefit from this extra level of protection.”

Utilizing the latest antimicrobial coatings technology, Linetec helps prevent stain and odor-causing bacteria that may cause deterioration of the physical properties of the coating. When moisture is present, the silver ion exchange mechanism infused into Linetec’s select finishes acts to disrupt the growth of such stain and odor-causing bacteria.
