Antimicrobial Testing

Kinon KFR0122 is an Inherent Disinfectant Surface which means it’s Antimicrobial and Bacteriostatic All In One!

Even More Kinon KFR0122 is Mold resistant &  Fungal resistant!

With the cold and flu season, and now the current COVID-19 environment, it’s important to have disinfectant surfaces. Now more than ever it is important to choose easily managed surfaces and Kinon is that choice. Not only have we provided luxury surfaces for walls, cabinets, doors, and furniture and more for 20 years, we have the advanced technology of antimicrobial with inherent disinfectant resistance. This means molds and bacteria can’t colonize and will not survive stagnant on your Kinon surfaces. Even more importantly, this new Kinon technology is offered with an ASTM E84 Class A Fire rating and Canadian CAN ULC S102 rating. This means Kinon is your best option for all facets of interior design applications within hospitality, corporate, retail, healthcare, residential, and transportation. Examples of applications include shower walls, bathroom cabinets, lobbies walls, spa walls, locker room cabinets, elevator walls, corridors, kitchens, furniture, conference tables, office, shared office space, surgical suites.

Moreover, for public spaces with fast client turnovers like restaurants, hotels, spas, casinos, hospitals, and busy offices we offer our powerful 80% Isopropyl sanitizing disinfectant cleaner that should be used daily for rapid disinfecting between clients. Kinon surface being bacteria resistant means the surface is completely inorganic and cannot be broken down and used as a source of nutrition by microbes. This makes it easy to clean away bacteria that may have transferred to surfaces through the air or physical contact.

Healthcare institutions of all types have known for years that illnesses will spread without proper disinfection, Healthcare-associated infections (HCIs) are picked up by patients already in hospital or other healthcare situations and can prove more serious than the initial reason for care. They’re often more resistant to treatment than typical bacterial infections, so prevention is key. Studies show that with proper prevention procedures in place, the risk of contracting HCIs can be reduced by up to 70 percent. These procedures include routinely disinfecting hard surfaces and regular hand washing.

A study by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) shows that the surface environment can contribute to the spread of HCIs. In healthcare, hospitality, education, and the workplace, surfaces are an integral part of the environment. Understanding the microbiological properties of your surfaces and implementing best practices for disinfecting them can go a long way to preventing the spread of illness, just like washing your hands.
