General Touch confirms partnership deal with Kastus to offer their patented antimicrobial coating across latest portfolio of touchscreen products.
General Touch aims to help better protect their customers’ brands and users with enhanced touchscreens offering a lifetime of antimicrobial performance.
Chengdu, China, September 18, 2019 — Touchscreens and devices are an essential part of modern life. When there are four times as many germs found on a self-service touchscreen than on a toilet seat, it’s no surprise that many consumers are concerned about engaging with shared surfaces and being exposed to infectious germs such as MRSA, E. coli and C. diff.
Kastus® is on a mission to tackle the growing issue of antimicrobial resistance with its game-changing surface solution. A patented coating that’s applied during the glass manufacturing process, Kastus Glass is scientifically proven to eliminate up to 99.99 percent of harmful bacteria, delivering germ-free protection to all glass and touchscreen surfaces – for life.
In a recent consumer survey commissioned by Kastus, over 70 percent of respondents stated they were worried about using public touchscreens. Of those surveyed, over 80% also stated they would actively seek out a business or establishment that offered a touchscreen with an invisible germ-free coating. These insights confirm the consumer desires and business opportunities that General Touch will address with their new Kastus-enhanced glass.
“The Kastus team is delighted to announce our new partnership with General Touch. The Kastus Intelligent Surface Technology™ will further enhance the broad product portfolio of General Touch across various markets. From ATM touchscreens and medical devices, to Quick Service Restaurant kiosks, our partnership reflects the customer-oriented core values we share.
