Antimicrobial Phone Case

ANTIMICROBIAL PHONE CASE: IS ANTIMICROBIAL PROTECTION THE RIGHT CHOICE?

Have you considered the impact of microbes on phone cases? Unfortunately, phone cases can harbour a range of unwanted microorganisms, such as bacteria and fungi, causing damage, staining, and even odours to the product. That’s why it’s beneficial to add antimicrobial technology to phone cases.

Have you considered the impact of microbes on phone cases? Unfortunately, our phone cases can harbour a range of unwanted microorganisms, such as bacteria and fungi, causing damage, staining, and even odours to the product. That’s why it’s essential to protect your phone case with an antimicrobial technology.

Antimicrobial and Antibacterial Phone Cases: What You Need to Know

An antimicrobial phone case is a type of phone case that is designed to inhibit the growth of microorganisms, such as bacteria and fungi. It does this by incorporating materials or coatings that are infused with antimicrobial agents, which can help to kill or slow the growth of these microorganisms on the surface of the phone case.

On the other hand, an antibacterial phone case is a type of phone case that is designed specifically to inhibit the growth of bacteria only. While bacteria are a common type of microorganism, an antibacterial phone case may not be effective against fungi. Which is why antimicrobial protection for phone cases is a suitable solution that includes antibacterial protection, along with protection against other types of microorganisms as well.

Antimicrobial phone cases work by using advanced technology to protect against damaging microorganisms. When a microorganism comes into contact with the surface of an antimicrobial phone case, the antimicrobial agents on the surface can disrupt the cell wall or membrane of the microorganism, which can cause the microorganism to die or slow down its growth. This can help to reduce the number of microorganisms on the surface of the phone case and limit the spread of unwanted bacteria and fungi.

The common microbes & bacteria found on phone cases

There are a variety of bacteria and other microbes that can be found on phones. Some common examples include:

  • Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus)
  • Escherichia coli (E. coli)
  • Streptococcus species
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Salmonella species
  • Candida species (a type of fungus)

These microorganisms can be transferred to phones through contact with hands, facial skin, or other surfaces. In addition, phones can provide a hospitable environment for microorganisms to grow and thrive due to the warmth and moisture provided by our bodies.

What are the benefits to having a phone case which is antimicrobial?

There are several benefits to having an antimicrobial phone case, including:

  • Reduced risk of cross-contamination: By inhibiting the growth and spread of microorganisms, an antimicrobial phone case can help to reduce the opportunity to spread from surface-to-surface.
  • Improved hygiene: Phones can be a breeding ground for microbes. An antimicrobial phone case can help to maintain a cleaner and more hygienic environment for phones.
  • Increased longevity: Antimicrobial phone cases can also help to extend the lifespan of phones and phone cases by reducing the growth of microorganisms.

  • Increased longevity: Antimicrobial phone cases can also help to extend the lifespan of your phone and phone case by reducing the growth of microorganisms that can cause damage to your phone.
  • Peace of mind: Knowing that your phone case is actively working to reduce the spread of microbes can provide peace of mind and help you to feel more comfortable using and sharing your phone.

How BioCote® works and why it’s a must-have feature

In most cases, BioCote® additives are incorporated directly into the plastic material during the manufacturing process. However, for certain applications, antimicrobial properties can instead be added to a product after it has been manufactured, in the form of a coating or surface treatment.

The integration of built-in BioCote® antimicrobial technology into plastics does not change the mechanical or physical properties of the plastic, so it can be used in a wide range of applications without the need for any modifications. The technology is versatile, allowing the treatment of a whole host of engineering and commodity polymers, as the antimicrobial technology can be processed at temperatures of up to 600°C.

Why choose BioCote®?

BioCote® technology is added to the product during the manufacturing stage and protects the product from microbes that cause staining, odour, and material degradation. We work closely with our customers to provide the most effective antimicrobial agent and dosage for their application.

  • Proven effectiveness: BioCote® has been providing antimicrobial solutions for over 25 years and has a proven track record of effectiveness. BioCote® technology has been tested against a range of microorganisms, including bacteria, and fungi, and has been shown to be highly effective at reducing their growth.
  • Versatile applications: BioCote® technology can be incorporated into a wide range of products and surfaces, including phone cases, medical equipment, food contact surfaces, and more. This versatility makes it a popular choice for a variety of industries.
  • Regulatory compliance: BioCote® technology is tested and certified to comply with a range of regulatory standards, including ISO, EPA, and FDA. This can help to give you peace of mind that the antimicrobial solution you are using is safe and effective.
