Silver Antimicrobial Additives

Silver form 1 & 2 – These composite silver compounds imbue products with excellent antimicrobial efficacy against a broad range of microbes. Thanks to the high efficacy and robust physical properties, this form is suitable for deployment in a broad range of materials and applications, including paints, coatings, textiles, polymers and other material types.

Zinc Antimicrobial Additives

A well-known antibacterial and antifungal compound, zinc pyrithione is known for its use in anti-dandruff shampoo. Zinc pyrithione can be incorporated into materials and applications which may be expected to have greater exposure to mould and fungi, as well as providing excellent antibacterial protection.

Copper Antimicrobial Additives

Providing antibacterial properties since the times of the Ancient Egyptians, copper salts can be utilised in many substrates. Often used in disinfectant products, Copper salts can also provide antimicrobial protection in preservative and hygienic applications, with substrates such as paints, coatings and polymers being most suitable.

Organic Antimicrobial Additives

Our range of organics consists of:

Phenolic biocides

A cost effective range of biocides that can be utilised in a wide variety of professional and industrial applications to act as a preservative, protecting substrates from the effects of microbial contamination.

Quaternary ammonium compounds (QAC or QUAT)

These antimicrobials are extremely diverse in terms of use and structure. BioCote’s quaternary ammonium compound products are ideal for uses such as disinfectant formulation and antimicrobial surface treatments.

Fungicides (Thiabendazole)

Many surfaces are vulnerable to discolouration, staining and material damage from mould and fungi. Our range of fungicides can be economically incorporated into many products and materials to provide long lasting protection.

How antimicrobial technology works

Antimicrobial additives are extremely diverse and control microbes via many different means. When used in the manufacture of products they create surfaces and materials inhospitable to microbes such as bacteria and mould. Find out more about how our additives work.
