Anti-Bacterial Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is an especially hygienic material and is therefore widely used in many catering and medical envi­ron­ments. Growing demand from other sectors to reduce the spread and prolife­ration of germs has seen increase development of stainless steel coatings. In response to this demand, BS Stainless is now able to supply anti-bacterial stainless steel in a variety of formats.

Stainless steel has what is known as a 'passive layer', a thin coating of chromium oxide on its surface that develops when the metal is in contact with the air. Highly unreactive with most other chemical elements, the passive layer gives stainless steel its anti-corrosive properties; it is also responsible for making the metal so hygienic. 

Anti-bacterial stainless steel from BS Stainless features a coating with integrated silver technology, which has been shown to be highly effective at reducing the prolife­ration of bacteria such as staphy­loc­occus aureus, e-coli, micrococcus luteus and MSRN. Advanced silver ion leaching control results in dramatic reduction of surface bacteria, resulting in a material that is especially safe for use in medical and catering environments and any other environment where germ control is of importance.­ 

The anti-bacterial properties of our coated stainless steel are not affected by any amount of cleaning or forming. Fingerprints and other contact marks can be easily removed from the non-stain coating and so maintenance requirements are minimal.­ 

Anti-bacterial stainless steel from BS Stainless can be supplied in several different grades in blank and sheet forms to the exact requirements of each individual customer. Please note that minimum quantity requirements may apply. 

As the need for germ control continues to increase, BS Stainless are ideally placed to provide reliable solutions.
