Antimicrobial coatings for metals, plastics and other substrates.

QHF (Columbia, SC) has announced the release of Q-COAT AMC, a series of high-performance coatings for metals, plastics and many other substrates, made with silver ions to inhibit the growth of microorganisms in or on the paint film. Unlike “post-applied” disinfectants which provide a limited residual activity once the treated surface dries, QHF’s integrated silver ion antimicrobial technology works to continuously minimize the presence of microorganisms throughout the entire lifecycle of the coating, per the company.

Q-Coat Antimicrobial Coatings are formulated with low-VOC, high-performance resins, UV non-fading pigments and active silver ions to provide a durable and environmentally friendly coating that stands up to extreme conditions and provides continuous prevention and ongoing protection from microorganisms in or on the paint film, according to QHF.

Customers using paint mixing equipment can easily convert any standard QHF coating to a Q-Coat AMC coating by substituting the binder for an AMC version binder. Customers using premixed and or factory-package colors can convert any color by requesting the AMC (Anti Microbial Coating) version of the color when ordering.
