Kastus® and Guangdong NorthGlass announce
Touchscreen Glass partnership
The two companies share a joint objective to create the next generation of touchscreen glass products with 24/7 germ-free protection.
ZHUHAI, CHINA, DEC 11 2019 — Touchscreens and interactive digital displays 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. The glass surface itself is a key factor.
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 ® is scientifically proven to block up to 99.99 percent of harmful bacteria, delivering ‘always-on’ germ-free protection to all shared touchscreens and personal devices, such as tablets and smartphones – 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 Guangdong NorthGlass will address with their new Kastus protected antimicrobial touchscreen glass.
Guangdong NorthGlass is a world leading display glass manufacturer. The company focuses on glass surface treatment technology and mainly processes display glass for a broad range of dimensions (8-98 Inches). Guangdong NorthGlass already has anti-glare, anti- reflective and anti-fingerprint surface treatment options available, which Kastus® antimicrobial solutions will be added to this portfolio.
