Company Says Coatings Combat Spread of Infection

Wednesday, August 4, 2010

Comment | More

Prime Coat Coating Systems (Waukegan, Ill.) introduced the Path-O-Cide™ and Fiber Coat with Kevlar® coatings products, formulated for applications in correctional facilities and other institutional settings. The products were introduced at the recent American Correctional Association Convention.

Path-O-Cide is a water-based topcoat formulated with a proprietary combination of ingredients that produces a surface with a pH level that is too high to allow infection-carrying pathogens to exist, said John Kolencik, the company’s sales and marketing director. The topcoat is designed for use with the company’s Seamless System™ and other high-performance coatings, he said.

The topcoat is reported to kill pathogens such as MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) on contact, with functionality that remains active during the service life of the coating, Kolencik said during a telephone interview with Durability + Design.

Recommended applications of the topcoat product include “any facility where there are concerns about surface contamination,” Kolencik said. He mentioned food-processing settings, hospitals, laboratories, and schools as likely candidates for use of the coating.

The company said the introduction of Fiber Coat with Kevlar marks a significant advance in the company’s Seamless System line. The Seamless System is described as a durable fiberglass and aggregate reinforced floor, wall and ceiling coating based on epoxy technology, reported to provide a pinhole-free and watertight surface.The addition of Kevlar fiber is reported to increase the strength of the coating system.

Prime Coat Coating Systems offers decorative and protective coating solutions for multiple industries. More information: www.primecoat.com.
