Raising the base level of hygiene to protect against COVID-19

Now is the time to introduce a long-term, sustainable plan to raise the base level of hygiene in public spaces to help protect against all viruses, including COVID-19, says Bromoco International, makers of Touch Antimicrobial coating.

There is a layer of defence that can protect against Coronavirus and most other bacterial and viral threats. Once applied, it works like a permenant disinfectant, 24 hours a day for up to 5 years, raising the base level of protection against contamination and strengthening the effectiveness of the hygiene measures already implemented.

Developed in the UK in 2013, Touch Antimicrobial is a permanent, retrofit, hard film, crystal clear coating that provides protection against enveloped viruses and bacteria for all hard surfaces. It is already being used effectively in many institutions and organisations throughout the UK, including high security government buildings, while businesses and factories are also applying the product to help protect their employees.

Tony Semple, technical director at Bromoco International, said: “Touch Antimicrobial coating is not the whole solution, but it is a major piece of the puzzle of ensuring schools and other public spaces and places of work have a solid, hygienically clean base level to support the existing cleaning regimes. Knowing that all surfaces in these buildings are working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to protect everyone from getting ill will make it much easier to keep the country open and moving forwards. We believe the application of this extra layer of hygiene and raising the base level of protection really is a no-brainer.”
