Fighting germs to keep customers happy, healthy and safe.
Hatco is proud to introduce IFS antimicrobial powder coatings to our paint process.
Hatco's Designer colors (Warm Red, Black, Gray Granite, White Granite, Navy Blue, Hunter Green, Antique Copper) and Gloss finishes (Smooth White, Gleaming Gold, Glossy Gray, Bold Black, Radiant Red, Brilliant Blue, Clear Brushed Metal) feature the IFS antimicrobial coatings.
While there is no visible change to our color offerings, the benefits of IFS antimicrobial coatings are clear to provide protection in foodservice operations to keep foods and customers safe.
The following information is cited from IFS Coatings:
IFS antimicrobial coatings use naturally-occurring, environmentally sustainable, silver ions to help inhibit the growth of microbes on the powder coated surface.
How do the coatings work? When moisture is present, the IFS antimicrobial coatings release the silver ions, which attach to a microbe's cellular structure to inhibit the growth of microbes. The coatings also retain their antimicrobial protection over time.
The silver ions offer protection against microbes that cause odor, mildew and spoilage without high toxicity to humans and animals.
