TECAFORM™ SAN and TECAPRO™ SAN
TECAFORM™ and TECAPRO™ SAN provide an additional safety factor in reducing incidence of bacterial contamination.
TECAFORM™ (Polyacetal) and TECAPRO™ SAN (Polypropylene), provide an additional safety factor in reducing incidence of bacterial contamination. The raw materials are charged with an antimicrobial additive. These silver ions are released gradually to reduce the formation of bacteria.
- Less bacterial contamination
- Reduced odor and biofilm formation
- Diminished formation of bacteria in equipment
- Active components are harmless to humans
- Scrubbing surface renews antimicrobial effect
- FDA conformity of raw material, color pigments and antimicrobial additive
TECAFORM™ SAN and TECAPRO™ SAN are ideal where continual sanitary and anti bacterial conditions are a requirement. Excellent for components in food processing equipment, bottling and canning machines, water handling and filtration equipment. Door handles and buttons in public places would benefit from reduction in transfer of bacteria. TECAPRO™ SAN is especially effective in surgical instruments, trays, work surfaces and cutting boards in medical as well as food storage and preparation areas.

Extreme chemical exposure (alkaline and acid solutions) can impact the antimicrobial effect on polymeric surfaces. Bacterial decay can be protracted by the application of antimicrobial products and thus it provides additional safety for the customer. However, usual and necessary cleaning practices should not be discontinued.
ENSINGER TECAFORM™ SAN and TECAPRO™ SAN are effective against a broad range of micro- organisms such as bacteria, fungi, algae, viruses, etc. As they differ greatly in their living conditions and their impact, the antimicrobial performance needs to be analyzed for the specific application to be able to give a pointed statement about antimicrobial effects under given circumstances.
