Torsan® WBU Anti-Bacterial Paint


Using built in SteriTouch® technology the water-based system actively reduces levels of bacteria that come into contact with the coated surface by 99.99%. It is effective against MRSA, Salmonella, E.Coli and other forms of bacteria and mould. Torsan® WBU delivers a Class ‘0’ fire rating when applied to new, bare or stripped surfaces. It is resistant to most chemicals, abrasion and graffiti.
A fibreglass-reinforced version of the system, designed for harsh environments, is also available which makes regular washing down possible, improves knock resistance and can be used to level out uneven surfaces.
