Hydro Ag

Demonstrated antibacterial coating performance
approximately 100 times greater* than
conventional technology**

Hydro Ag features a silver-based antibacterial agent dispersed in a super-hydrophilic binder. This treatment supplies silver ions from both the surface and from the inside of a coating film. As a result, the concentration of silver at the surface of the film is maintained consistently high, thereby guaranteeing excellent and persistent antibacterial performance over a long period of time.

*General antibacterial coat using a binder with low hydrophilicity, which is used for LCD protective films.
**As result of an antibacterial performance test conducted according to JISZ2801, Hydro Ag’s antibacterial properties are greater than 100 times of conventional silver-based coating film within an hour after initial exposure to E. coli bacteria.

Persistent antibacterial performance

An antibacterial performance test conducted according to JISZ2801 has shown that bacteria was reduced by more than 99.9% within an hour of initial exposure to the bacteria. Hydro Ag demonstrates approximately 100 times the antibacterial performance** than a conventional silver-based antibacterial coating that uses nonhydrophilic binders.
