what-is-silver-ion-technology

How does Silver Ion (Ag) antimicrobial technology work?

The antimicrobial properties of silver have been known and used for centuries. Silver Ions (Ag) are used to attack the DNA of the microbes and by doing so weakens its biological make-up. Neutralising the microbes will prevent its ability to reproduce and multiply into dangerous pathogens.

We apply a highly durable film to our products that contains Silver Ion antimicrobial technology.

  • Silver ions (Ag) are encapsulated in a glass matrix and distributed evenly throughout the protective layer of the products.
  • Silver Ions attack the microbial DNA and by doing so weakens its biological make-up.
  • Silver Ion technology prevents the formation of biofilms.

Could smart antimicrobial surfaces help stop the spread of infection and antimicrobial resistance? We find out at the launch of our Briefing Paper, and ask how academia, policy makers, industry and the general public can all help tackle this ever growing threat. #ImperialSmartSurfaces

The Dangers of Bio Films

1,000 X more resistant to disinfectants than bacteria found outside of biofilms.

  • In-between cleaning gives bacteria the chance to grow and very quickly can mature into what is called a BioFilm.
  • Silver Ions attack the microbial DNA and by doing so weakens its biological make-up.
  • We use a Silver Ion antimicrobial technology that work 24/7 when cleaning doesn’t. This prevents the formation of biofilms.
