5 MAY: GLOBAL HAND HYGIENE DAY

Having clean hands is really important because it can save lives by decreasing the spread of infections caused by germs and bacteria.
This global celebration is a daily necessity since there are no other mechanisms to avoid spread of disease, except one: ABACO®.
ABACO® is the PVD antibacterial coating that is capable of completely killing bacteria and inhibiting further growth.
Bacteria are everywhere and our hands pick them up when we come into contact with many different surfaces. We may be washing our hands often but right after washing, we turn off faucets, and, more than likely, touch other surfaces like door handles. Even after these surfaces have been cleaned, bacteria still colonize them and remain a source of transmission to people.
ABACO® is a high vacuum nanotechnological coating which can be produced by both our PVD systems Powerflex (1100-1500) and DecoCoat (700-1100) eliminating bacteria and keeping antibacterial properties over the surface material’s lifespan.
ABACO® can be used to coat multiple surfaces guaranteeing a luxurious look that is also free of microorganisms and fungicide.
Clean care for all thanks to ABACO®!

ABACO vs Covid-19

One of the disappointed news that’s evolved and have in common all the world is the pandemic virus otherwise known as COVID-19 (or SARS-COV2).
A study confirms COVID-19 lives for a long time on different surfaces: cardboard (up to 24h); plastic (up to 72h) and stainless steel (up to 48h). How is it possible to kill the virus definitely and to have a hygienic surface?
Basically, viruses have short live and die if there are no host cells to allow them to grow and to reproduce. The most common host cell, where COVID-19 can live and infect, is the bacteria. Thankfully, Protec S.T. developed special anti-bacterial PVD coatings (ABACO), the anti-bacterial PVD thin film able to completely inhibit the growth of bacteria and to guarantee a durable and pure surface, maintaining the usual PVD colors.
ABACO can reduce the virus existence thanks to the bactericidal action to the coated surfaces and our process engineers are working hard to develop even more new colors and coating solutions.
We are happy to share with you our results and we wish everyone to stay safe.
