Antibacterial Technology supplied by BioCote® commonly utilises one of three key actives: silver ions, zinc or copper. Silver is the most widely used technology in the world largely due to its historic success as an antibacterial substance, its broad spectrum performance and its suitability for deployment in a range of materials and applications. BioCote® also offers a range of organic technologies that encompasses phenolic biocides, quaternary ammonium compounds (QAC or QUAT) and fungicides.

BioCote® has an appropriate formulation for every material type, meaning our antibacterial technology is suitable for deployment in plastics, polymers, paints, coatings, textiles, paper, ceramics, rubber and many more.
