• Deflecto launches antimicrobial office desk range

        • To help restrict the growth of bacteria on your desk, Deflecto has created an office desk range with SteriTouch. This antimicrobial desk set will restrict the growth of bacteria, fungi and mould, helping you keep your workstation clean.

          SteriTouch harnesses the antimicrobial properties of silver to create additives for use in almost any material, from plastics and rubber to paints and fabrics, where hygiene, performance or aesthetics are important.

          Silver ions embedded in the material substrate are released via ambient moisture and enter the cell membrane. The silver ions destabilise the cell, stop respiration and inhibit cell division, whilst blocking the replication of DNA, killing the cell.

          The main function of an antimicrobial product is to offer protection against a range of bacteria including E. coli, MRSA, Salmonella and Legionella, as well as black mould growth, biofilm and fungi. 

          Mould growth is responsible for costly redecoration cycles and respiratory complaints, especially in damp and humid environments where its prevention is otherwise difficult. SteriTouch works continuously and effectively to restrict this growth before it appears.

          SteriTouch eradicates the bacteria which cause contamination and infection, as well as those responsible for odours and staining. The antimicrobial effect also protects the product against degradation, extending its use.

          The antimicrobial performance of the end product is confirmed by independent testing to the international standards (JIS and ISO), ensuring that all products meet the requirements for the use of the SteriTouch brand.
