Reducing the risk of infection with Biomaster
T-Safe Point of Use Filters and Hygiene Showers both incorporate Biomaster antimicrobial additive technology which is added to the base plastics during the manufacturing and prior to moulding. Biomaster provides a permanent protection against harmful bacteria such as Legionella on both internal and external surfaces. Helping to reduce the risk of infection from retrograde and cross contamination. The efficacy of the Biomaster antimicrobial additive in T-Safe products has been independently tested in accordance with ISO 22196 and proven to reduce bacteria growth by up to 99.9%
Biomaster’s antimicrobial agent is based on silver ion technology and has three modes of action. When bacteria come into contact with a Biomaster protected surface, the silver ions prevent them from growing, producing energy or replicating, therefore they die.
Unlike some antimicrobial agents, Biomaster is incredibly durable, long lasting and highly active. When added, it is dispersed throughout the entire base material and becomes an integral part of the product. Silver is inorganic and non-leaching which means that, unlike organic antimicrobial agents or technologies, it stays within the material to which it is added. The controlled release of the active ingredient provides maximum antibacterial protection for the lifetime of the product.
