Innovative AkzoNobel powder coating offers invisible protection-The BioCote® antimicrobial technology

The company’s antimicrobial Interpon AM range – recently specified for use on 2,350 door handles in a clinic in Abu Dhabi – contains BioCote® antimicrobial protection. It not only delivers outstanding decorative characteristics, but also combats the growth of microbes such as bacteria and mold.



Suitable for a wide range of applications, it’s typically used in hygiene conscious environments such as hospitals, clinics, changing rooms, schools and public transport.

“Demand for antimicrobial coatings is increasing due to growing consumer concern for hygiene,” explains Mark Reekie, Global Segment Manager for AkzoNobel’s industrial powder coatings. “The beauty of Interpon AM is that as well as meeting all the protective and decorative characteristics expected of a high performance powder coating, it also performs to the very highest antimicrobial standards.”

The BioCote® antimicrobial technology active in Interpon AM shows no mercy. It reduces up to 99.99% of bacteria and mold on a protected surface, making it easier to keep hygienically clean and reducing the risk of cross-contamination.

“As the undisputed world leader in powder coatings, we’re committed to setting the standards for quality, service and innovation,” continues Reekie. “Interpon AM is a prime example of how we continue to develop world class products for our customers while always looking to grow and improve.”

Adds Jennifer Collier, Partner Development at BioCote: “We work successfully with industry leading, global companies such as AkzoNobel to help them create more hygienic, premium antimicrobial products. We are extremely proud of our partnership with AkzoNobel, and to be part of such a high quality, reliable product. Interpon AM stands as an example of success for all companies that we work with as we continue to achieve greater levels of hygiene around the world.”

BioCote is the market-leading antimicrobial solutions provider, with over 20 years of experience in antimicrobial technology.
