Industrial food production struggles with very high hygiene requirements to ensure protection against pathogens.

The highest hygiene standards are an absolute prerequisite in food production - but up to now, the limits of what is feasible have often been reached, both in terms of personnel and finances.

With the innovation of providing surfaces with long-lasting protection against pathogens, the problem of the rapid spread of pathogens can be counteracted very efficiently and cost-effectively. Depending on the area of application and abrasion, the HECOSOL-TiTANO® coating achieves a protection against germs of up to one year and longer.

The majority of food and everyday products are distributed via supermarkets. Here, a large number of consumers are on the move every day, touching the same surfaces and each time leaving germs on these surfaces or picking them up there. A carpet of germs (biofilm) can develop on highly frequented surfaces.

As basic service providers, supermarkets and shopping arcades can hardly protect their customers sufficiently because of the many contact and touch points. Whenever many people touch the same surfaces at central account points, the amount of germs left there increases and so does the risk of infection. Especially if the immune system is weakened, the risk of disease increases. Disinfecting these surfaces only helps to a limited extent. The frequent disinfection of shopping trolley handles is rather symbolic and not an effective preventive measure. It was only used at the beginning of the pandemic. In terms of personnel, it is at best difficult to implement and financially and environmentally unsustainable!

With the HECOSOL-TiTANO® technology of antibacterial coating of surfaces, an innovative, pragmatic and economical way has been developed to solve this problem. With a protective effect of up to one year and longer*. *depending on the area of application
