About Us

Kastus® is an Award-Winning surface innovation company founded in 2014 with global headquarters and manufacturing based in Ireland. Our patented range of antimicrobial coatings are designed to enhance surfaces across our 3 core Industry offers – Glass, Ceramics and Touchscreens.

Our mission is to create game-changing surface coatings that enhance lives and create value for our partners.

- John Browne, CEO & Founder

As consumers lead busier on the go lives, we increasingly depend on the screens we touch to make our days hassle free. The problem is that infectious germs such as MRSA, E. Coli and C. Diff thrive on the surface of both personal and  interactive shared screens. Once we’ve touched these screens, we’re both depositing and carrying away those germs and harmful bacteria that we pick up on the go. 

According to a study conducted in May 2019, 81% of people recently surveyed would actively choose to use public touchscreens with a germ-free coating than use one without. On average, one airport self check-in touchscreen tested positive for 253,857 colony forming units (CFU). In comparison, an average of only 172 CFU are found on toilet seats.

For consumer brands and manufacturers looking to differentiate their offer, Kastus’ patented antimicrobial coating technology is the answer. With multiple applications across Glass, Ceramics and Touchscreen Kiosks, Kastus-coated touchscreens offer 24/7 germ-free antimicrobial protection for life.
