Lorin Industries is pleased to announce that its Anodized Aluminum products feature antimicrobial properties. For those of you who want surface protection and minimal bacteria collection on surfaces, consider the benefits of Lorin Anodized Aluminum. In addition to all of the other benefits of anodized aluminum, Lorin’s proprietary anodizing process delivers antimicrobial properties backed by independent lab testing.
Engineers and application experts at Lorin believe that Lorin Anodized Aluminum is a preferred material for reducing surface bacterial collection. When it comes to being protected, Lorin is here to provide you the assurance you need.
Lorin worked with an independent third party lab to test the antimicrobial properties of Lorin Anodized Aluminum. Testing with (Escherichia coli) resulted in a reduction in concentration of the bacteria 74% to 99.7%. Testing with (Staphylococcus Aureus) resulted in a reduction in concentration of the bacteria from 74% to 87%.
The proven antimicrobial properties of Lorin Anodized Aluminum have long-term benefits beyond minimizing bacterial growth. As part of the surface, the antimicrobial property does not have to be reapplied and it can withstand more than 10,000 cleanings while still providing protection against bacterial growth.
If you are looking for assurance by using materials with antimicrobial properties or want to provide safety for your employees so that they feel safe at work, then Lorin is here to provide that assurance. Environments where Lorin material is used for vertical and horizontal surfaces, you can now rest at ease knowing if you use Lorin Anodized Aluminum that the antimicrobial assurance is there to protect everyone.
