SILVERPLUS® - natural hygiene, protection and freshness with EPA-registration of the raw material

 

SILVERPLUS®
the functional cluster technology for coatings

An increasing coating trend is functionalising surfaces by controlling microorganisms, such as bacteria and fungi, etc with silver ions. Thanks to a special micro-pigmented carrier technology, which, by means of moisture, enables the availability of silver ions from a virtually infinite deposit, the RUDOLF GROUP has pushed this technology and has developed it to be the leading system under the brand name SILVERPLUS®.

Especially for the coating sector PU systems, such as RUCO-COAT EC 4811, have been developed which, when incorporating the SILVERPLUS pigments, do not close the polymer matrix, but further allow the bacteriostatic effect of SILVERPLUS to be active.

SILVERPLUS® is the functional cluster technology with multiple fields of use ranging from textile functionalising, coating, to end-user applications.

Advantages:

  • EPA registration of the active ingredient
  • Oeko-Tex registration of active ingredient preparations
  • Highly effective silver ion technology thanks to special carrier technology
  • Compatible with breathable, water-vapour-permeable coating systems
  • Easily worked in
  • High-temperature-resistant inorganic pigment
