Independent Antimicrobial Testing

air pressure stabilisers with Stertouch

Apreco’s Partnership with SteriTouch®

Apreco was the first company to introduce antimicrobial coatings to Air Pressure Stabilisers in 2005.

To this day, Apreco continue to utilise SteriTouch’s antimicrobial coatings.

In partnership with SteriTouch® Apreco have carried out independent tests to prove the antimicrobial performance and longevity of the powder coating finish that is applied to all our VARI-centric® Air Pressure Stabilisers and their accessories as standard.
These tests have proven that the silver ion technology in the SteriTouch® coating remains active for 10+ years and reduces E.coli and MRSA organisms by 99.999% within a 24 hour duration.

Apreco’s range of VARI-centric® Air Pressure Stabilisers has SteriTouch® coated Blades and Frames ensuring the highest antimicrobial protection available on the market.

Other products may claim to offer antimicrobial protection as standard, but unfortunately, these products are generally only coated with an antimicrobial coating on their frame. Other components of the air pressure stabiliser that are left uncoated such as the stainless steel blades offer no antimicrobial protection. (As shown below and in our Independent report)

Why use SteriTouch®

SteriTouch’s powder coating used on the VARI-centric® Air Pressure Stabilisers utilises silver ions which hold extensive approvals including those for food contact. All the active components used in the coating are approved by the EFSA and FDA and supported by the Biocidal Product Regulations.

SteriTouch eradicates the bacteria which causes contamination and infection. Its purpose is not to create a sterile environment but to act as a complementary measure to routine cleaning. The main function of the SteriTouch coating is to offer protection against a range of bacteria including e.coli, MRSA, Salmonella, and Legionella, as well as black mould growth biofilm and fungi.

Independent performance tests carried out for Apreco have proven that SteriTouch® powder-coated VARI-centric® Air Pressure Stabilisers reduce E.coli  and MRSA organisms by 99.999% within a 24-hour duration.

Independent 10 year accelerated ageing tests carried out for Apreco have proven that SteriTouch® powder-coated VARI-centric® Air Pressure Stabilisers resulted in no loss in antimicrobial performance.

Why not to use Stainless Steel

Historically brushed Hair Line Stainless Steel has been the material of choice in the healthcare sector, however, antimicrobial claims cannot be made for this material as it has not been supported for inclusion on the BPR (Biocidal Products Regulation).

The brushed surface finish on Stainless Steel also acts as a safe haven for bacteria allowing it to survive and thrive even after routine cleaning.
