Protect self-service kiosk users from dangerous bacteria like E coli and MRSA with SeePoint's antimicrobial coated kiosks. In kiosk installations where bacteria transmission is a concern, SeePoint's trained technicians can apply this antimicrobial coating, the Aegis Microbe Shield, to keep touch screens and keyboards free from bacteria, spores, viruses and fungi. Coated touch screens and keyboards also provide surfaces where bacteria and other microbial contaminants cannot grow.
Antimicrobial coatings are highly recommended for kiosks used in hospitals, public areas, high traffic installations, government self-services and retail display fixtures. In use since the mid-1970s, the Aegis Microbe Shield is a safe and effective antimicrobial technology that combats contamination on frequently touched surfaces such as kiosk keyboards and touch screens. The antimicrobial coating used on SeePoint kiosks is a permanent protective shield that kills 99.4% of all microbes.
Antimicrobials control, destroy or suppress the growth of microbes, eliminating or limiting the negative effects of contamination, staining and deterioration.
Permanently bonded to the touch screen surface, the resistive membrane of the antimicrobial coating does not affect display clarity on the touch screen. The antimicrobial coating is also safe for the user and the environment. The coating does not leach in the environment, migrate to a user's hands or wear off when the screen is cleaned. Unlike other products, the technology of this coating does not allow microbes to adapt or create resistant organisms.
The Aegis Microbe Shield works by physically rupturing the microbe. The compound used in the coating consists of a long molecular chain that looks like a sword which, at its base, has a permanent bonding property. The permanently bonded "sword" sticks up from the surface where it has been applied, ready to puncture the microbe. When the microbe comes into contact with the sword, the microbe is punctured. Then the sword's base, which includes a nitrogen molecule, draws the microorganism to it and electrocutes the cell. The microbe is destroyed on the sword. In the process, the coating is not consumed or dissipated so the antimicrobial is not depleted.
