In a world where there is a heightened awareness of hygiene, introducing extra steps to improve the cleanliness of surfaces within many environments has become a high priority. There are many operational considerations to bear in mind when improving the hygiene of key environments. For some surfaces, the need for increased hygiene is both obvious and is being recognised and addressed around the world.
However, what extra steps can be taken to improve the hygiene of key surfaces that remain common touchpoints, such as radiators, but are less likely to face the increased scrutiny of cleaning regimes? BioCote® technology offers low-cost, superior hygiene benefits that actively support cleaning and hand hygiene to offer the ultimate hygiene solution.
Protecting radiators with BioCote® antimicrobial technology will make them easier to keep hygienically clean.
With hygiene being at the forefront of people’s minds, maintaining high levels of cleanliness are of the utmost importance. This means that cleaning regimes have never been more important. BioCote® protection works in conjunction with regular cleaning to actively reduce microbes such as bacteria and mould on protected surfaces, helping to keep those surfaces free of microbes in between each cleaning session. BioCote® technology, together with a robust cleaning regime and good hand hygiene helps to provide the ultimate hygiene solution by protecting key surfaces such as radiators.
Works in minutes, lasts a lifetime.
Introduced into the protective radiator coating at point of manufacture, the BioCote® technology is present throughout the coating and will continue to perform for as long as the paint is present on the surface of the radiator. The protection does not wear off or wash away, and it reduces bacteria by up to 86% in just 15 minutes, continuing to work around the clock reducing microbial contamination in between cleans.
Having an antimicrobial radiator will reduce the risk of the surface of the radiator from being a point of microbial cross-contamination.
As radiators warm up, they can provide optimum temperatures for microbes to survive and become a risk of cross-contamination. By introducing BioCote® technology to the surface of the radiator, it will actively protect the surface from the presence and activity of microbes. Having less microbes on the surface of the radiator means it is less likely to become a point for cross-contamination. This is of particular importance in hygiene-conscious environments, such as healthcare settings.
Performance against a broad range of microbes.
By choosing BioCote® technology, the radiator surfaces benefit from broad-spectrum antimicrobial protection as a result of the performance of the technology. BioCote® has been proven effective against a wide range of microbes, including bacteria, mould and even some viruses. The efficacy of BioCote® technology against bacteria and mould is well established. Recently, BioCote® has also been proven to be effective at reducing feline coronavirus, strain Munich by up to 90% in 2 hours. A full list of the microbes BioCote® technology is effective against can be viewed here.
Trustworthy, credible data supported by BioCote® with the quality control to prove it.
BioCote® technology is regularly and robustly tested to show continued efficacy of over 95% reduction in microbes. This means that the BioCote® brand maintains its status as the hallmark of antimicrobial quality, from the standard of the material itself right up to the performance delivered both in the laboratory and in real-life settings.

Having a BioCote® protected radiator instead of a standard, unprotected one, is a low-cost solution for hygienic improvements. With no aesthetic differences, BioCote® protected surfaced offer a second layer of defence against the presence of microbes.
