A Unique Technology to Help Fight the Spread of the Global Pandemic
- Kastus’ world-leading ‘always on’ screen coating technology has been independently proven by a leading UK Research lab to neutralise 99% of human Coronavirus1 on treated surfaces
- This new report arrives after new research from Australia’s national science agency (CSIRO) that Human Coronavirus is “extremely robust” and can remain infectious on surfaces such as banknotes, phone screens and stainless steel for 28 days
- Scalable and easy-to-apply coating means the technology can be applied to most screens from smaller personal devices to larger screens within healthcare, travel, restaurants, retail, grocery and hospitality
Kastus®, the world leader in antimicrobial and antiviral screen coverings, is pleased to announce a new independent study confirming that their patented antiviral & antimicrobial coating technology neutralises 99% of human coronavirus on treated surfaces. The test by Virology Research Services followed the global ISO 21702 test protocol and showed the result of a Kastus coated surface vs a non-coated control surface.
This result follows significant new research recently released by Australia’s national science agency (CSIRO) that Human Coronavirus is “extremely robust” and can remain infectious on surfaces such as banknotes, phone screens and stainless steel for 28 days.
Kastus’ light-activated technology is ‘always on’, never depletes and is environmentally friendly while bacteria and viruses cannot build resistance to it. It can be integrated as part of the manufacturing of new screens or retrofitted as a Kastus screen protector onto existing devices.
The everyday applications for this technology are vast, from protecting personal devices to helping screen-dependent industries such as healthcare, travel, restaurants, retail, grocery, and hospitality. Good news to help businesses stay open and offer the maximum peace of mind to their customers.
Kastus’ photocatalytic technology has 44 global patents and has been at the forefront of antimicrobial and antiviral surface protection since 2014, offering the ultimate ‘always on’ protection for touchscreen devices and machines. Our world-leading screen coating technology has been independently proven to be neutralise 99% of human Coronavirus and up to 99.99%² of surface bacteria. Millions of device users around the world are protected daily by Kastus powered screen protectors.
“I’m very pleased that Kastus technology has been independently proven to neutralise over 99% of Coronavirus on treated surfaces. As Global businesses across a range of industries work tirelessly to protect the economy and jobs while keeping employees and customers safe, we believe that today’s announcement has important implications in the fight against the pandemic. Touchscreens have become a ubiquitous component of many people’s work and leisure time and by using Kastus-protected screens as part of broader safety measures our technology can contribute to a reduction in transmission of coronavirus."
