Antimicrobial properties – how does it work?

ADHETEC antimicrobial solutions embed a breakthrough technology by Pylote: micron-sized mineral additives mixed in the surface coating. The antiviral and antibacterial action of the microspheres operates by contact with the surface of parts where they have been incorporated into. It is the result of a reaction between moisture, air and the surface containing the antimicrobial treatment, killing germs. The microspheres are neither consumed nor extracted from the surface but kept active in the surface they have been integrated into for a very long time.

Certified antimicrobial technology

The technology, which was developed 10 years ago and has been used in different industry sectors with proven efficacy is recognized globally and has obtained the following certifications:

Why using films over sprays?

Save time and money

The antivirus and antibacterial technology of ADHETEC’s films is effective for a very long time. Efficacy of the technology is proven for over 50 months. You do not need to change your cabin cleaning procedure. Once applied, just wipe the surface as usual.

Preserve health

The technology used in ADHETEC antimicrobial range is natural and neutralharmless for passengers even for very young children. The films allow food contact without any risks. ADHETEC antiviral and antibacterial films ensure safety and hygiene in the cabin for a safe and comforting journey.

Homogeneous application

The antimicrobial films guarantee a homogeneous and sufficient application of the antibacterial and antivirus treatment onto the entire surface of each part that we supply, unlike a manual spraying operation, which is more random and less accurate. ADHETEC’s solution does not generate overspray or unpleasant smell in the cabin.
