Introducing the Fluregiene 200™

Curtiss-Wright has partnered with BioCote® to expand their fluoropolymer coating product range to create Fluregiene 200™: an antimicrobial coating that is ideally suited for many surfaces and environments.

Based on the existing Everlube Flurene 117 product, the new Fluregiene 200™ is a unique fluoropolymer coating that offers low friction, easy-clean properties combined with superb chemical and abrasion resistance. With a view to improving hygiene standards, Curtiss-Wright has integrated BioCote® antimicrobial technology to protect the coating from microbes such as bacteria, mould and fungi. Benefits of applying antimicrobial technology into the Fluregiene 200™ include:

  • Anti-fouling
    • Low COF Surface coating (0.08 – 0.2 static)
    • Corrosion resistance and excellent chemical resistance
    • Excellent chip and abrasion resistance
    • Reduces and prevents build-up of contaminates
    • Excellent flexibility
    • Dirt and debris less likely to attach to the surface
  • Microbial & bacteria growth inhibitor
    • Using patented BioCote® antimicrobial technology against microbial growth
    • Inhibits and reduces microbial growth on protected coating
    • Protects treated surfaces against bad odours, staining and material degradation
  • Easy clean and reduced cleaning intervals
    • Provides continual microbial reduction on coating
    • High PTFE content allows easy wipe down and cleaning
    • Provides more hygienic and cleanable surface than brushed or finished steels

Applicable in a wide range of products as door handles, elevator buttons, airport seating and gym equipment, the Fluregiene 200™ is highly beneficial for any and all of these surfaces. BioCote® also has real-life data and case studies to support the application of our antimicrobial technology in environments such as health care, transport, education, public areas and much more.
