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 existing Everlube coating technology, 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:
- 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™ will be highly beneficial for these surfaces. BioCote® also has real-life data to support the application of this antimicrobial technology in environments such as health care, transport, education, public areas and much more.
