Yorkshire Resin Products Manufacturer Develops Epoxy Coating Resistant to Coronavirus

West Yorkshire resin products manufacturer, Resincoat, have pioneered the development of an antimicrobial epoxy coating that has been certified to viral BS ISO 21702:2019 standards to be effective against Coronavirus.

The epoxy coating has been independently tested and certified and, unlike other coatings, the product remains active throughout its lifetime (up to several years).

Andy Melling; Resincoat Managing Director says:

"In terms of the global war on coronavirus, this coating is a game changer! We have been working tirelessly to formulate a coating that could help companies and individuals safeguard environments against this terrible virus. After a long 5 month wait for the test results, we couldn’t be happier with the outcome”

The Resincoat high performance Covid-19 resistant coating is a heavy-duty epoxy resin used for highly trafficked areas where anti-bacterial properties are of clinical importance. The product aims to prevent the spread of coronavirus by continually killing throughout the day and, according to the company, "guarantees fast, effective anti-microbial protection for the lifetime of the product".

Resincoat manufactures all their epoxy resin products at their factory in Pontefract, West Yorkshire. The company are ISO 9001 certified and supply to both industrial and domestic customers throughout the UK and Europe.

The product is available to buy from Resincoat’s online e-commerce store. All testing certificates are available as downloads on request. For further information visit https://www.resincoat.co.uk/en/anti-bacterial/576-covid-19-resistant-high-performance-epoxy-coating.html
