One of the major challenges to human health worldwide is infections and infectious diseases, which are spread within a variety of different environments. The bugs have plenty of opportunities to spread, especially across screens and ceramic surfaces throughout fast food restaurants – so it is important to help prevent them from growing in the first place. 


What are antimicrobial glass coatings? 

Here at Kastus®, we have developed coating technology which inhibits the ability of microorganisms to grow across a variety of different surfaces. The technology transforms coated glass and ceramics into a super-hydrophilic surface, delivering self-cleaning benefits for life on any compatible architectural glass and float glass. The coatings are durable and active even after 50,000 abrasion cycles, providing 24/7 antimicrobial protection and helping to reduce the frequency of infections and protects us from the spread of germs


What are QSRs? 

Consumers consistently demand value, speed and convenience in their dining choices, which is why fast-food restaurants are so popular. Despite the entire customer experience being incredibly quick, the use of QSRs has been adopted to promote this efficiency even further. Customers are now opting to place orders on tablets or oversized touch screens rather than with a person at the counter, which just shows how the uses of QSRs are growing. Most QSR environments are centred around functionality, with speed and efficiency being primary goals.


How can they benefit the fast-food industry? 

As we have already touched upon, the Kastus® technology is used throughout a variety of different industries including fast food restaurant chains – which is just one example. QSRs or quick service (QSRs)  restaurants have recently adopted the use of self-order screens within their branches which helps them to manage customer queues, boosting customer foot fall and offer a wider range of food typically shown on a printed menu, encouraging the upsell of different items. QSRs use touch screen technology, so our coating technology can ensure any harmful bacteria is eliminated and 24/7 antimicrobial protection is provided for customers.


Many infections are becoming harder to treat as the antibiotics used to treat them become less effective, such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, and salmonellosis. However, by utilising antimicrobial glass coatings technology, it can prevent infectious diseases from spreading from the offset. 


How can Kastus® help you? 

Ever since we were established back in 2014, our mission has been to create game-changing surface coatings that enhance lives and create value for our partners. Our product can be applied to glass or ceramic surfaces during or after manufacture and the process involves spray-coating and heat-sealing the layer on to a surface to form a thin top layer which is applied during manufacturing. The technology is also ISO certified to the highest industry standards, delivering a unique range of additional benefits in one advanced solution.
