LEONHARD KURZ has developed BIOFENSE® Antiviral with surface hygiene in mind. It not only has an anti-bacterial and and antifungal effect, but also reliably protects against viruses - including SARS-CoV-2. As a result, surfaces stay hygienically clean even in minimal light. This protection is free of heavy metals and has a long-term effect, even when cleaning agents are used. It is transparent, suitable for all designs and functionalities, and does not impair the recyclability of the components.
The advantages of BIOFENSE® at a glance:
- Made with efficient IMD technology
- Also suitable for efficient hot stamping process
- Long-term antiviral effect on plastic surfaces
- Absolutely harmless to health
- BIOFENSE® is transparent and can be combined with creative designs
- It is suitable for high-gloss surfaces
- Day-and-night design or backlighting are possible, to achieve special design effects
- Can be used for HMI surfaces and displays
The fantastic thing about this solution: You get to enjoy almost unrestricted design freedom. Whether high-gloss, Shy Tech design, backlighting, or special graphic requirements: BIOFENSE® allows a wide variety of creative paths. This is because its virus protection integrates invisibly into the surface design. Even the functions of capacitive sensor fields or antennas remain unimpaired. The product is applied using cost-effective In-Mold Decoration (IMD), whereby the component is manufactured and decorated in a single work step. For two-dimensional surfaces, hot stamping is an efficient solution. BIOFENSE® is harmless to health. This creates an impressive symbiosis of hygienic finish, functionality, and cost-effectiveness.
This protective layer ensures that an antiviral biofilm is formed. Owing to its deposit effect, this action lasts for a long time. BIOFENSE® is suitable for almost all areas of life. This innovation is particularly useful for products that are frequently touched, such as mobile devices, light switches, but also cosmetics jars or interior fittings in cars.
