#2 INNOVATION



A radiator covered with the special Interpon AM coating by AkzoNobel with BioCote® antimicrobial technology. It is an agent with active silver ions that prevent the microorganisms, such as bacteria, moulds and fungi from reproducing and surviving.

Research on the composition of dust has shown that there are about 9,000 different microorganisms, 7,000 of which are bacteria, while the rest is made up of various fungal and mould spores as well as viruses. The most dangerous bacteria found in the dust are Staphylococcus aureus, which in favourable conditions can cause very serious skin or respiratory tract infections. Other equally dangerous bacteria are Group A and B Streptococci.

Increased presence of dust

Poland belongs to those countries where people do not ventilate their houses as often as they should. What is the reason? We live in a country where the number of days with polluted air, cold days, or days without the sun is relatively large. And because of this, the Polish people do not air their rooms for most of the year.

As a result, they have a lot of dust and dirt. And the dust in our flats and homes is a mixture of literally everything ‒ from smog to particles of our skin or pets. It contains everything that we bring inside or what is brought by the air.

We should remember that we spend most of the time indoors, even when it is spring or summer. Although there are days when the sun, which kills microbes, shines or when we air the rooms more often, we still spend so many hours every day indoors. That's why, it is worth thinking about what we can do to improve the quality of air in our homes.

Silver ions – do they really work?

The properties of silver have been known for a long time, even since antiquity. It was used to coat dishes, which prevented diseases from spreading. People also threw coins into the water to extend its durability.

Why is silver popular again? Because we are becoming more and more resistant to antibiotics. Antibiotics are abused, and as you know, they exert not only a positive effect on our health. Silver ions are broad-spectrum: they can fight all positive and negative bacteria, fungi and viruses. They work in many directions, but are safe for people.

A radiator with silver ions will not have any negative influence on our or our children's health. Importantly, silver ions cannot be washed away or damaged, so they will remain active throughout the entire lifetime of the product. It is also a good idea to combine such a radiator with an air purifier, which in turn absorbs dust, and not, like silver ions, deactivates microorganisms. The effectiveness of BioCote® technology has been proven by many certificates ‒ it reduces the number of microorganisms by up to 99.99%.

Silver attracts bacteria: positively charged silver ions attract negative cells on the electrostatic basis. Then the active Ag+ ion penetrates the wall of the bacterial cell, binds to proteins and simply destroys it ‒ explains Mariusz Ozga. The cell breaks down according to the mechanical principle. Silver has a lethal effect not only on bacteria, but also on fungi and viruses. In the latter case, silver ions affect the DNA and RNA of the cell.

And that's why it is worth covering various objects and devices with silver.

BioCote® technology:
• Has been proven effective in combating a wide range of bacteria and fungi, as well as the H1N1 virus;
• Reduces the number of microorganisms by up to 99.99%; 
• Ensures significant reduction within 15 minutes;
• Reduces the number of microorganisms by up to 99.5% within only 2 hours;
• Works continuously during the entire estimated lifetime of the product.

Investment in your health

The radiator with silver ions can really affect the air quality in a house or apartment, and thus improve its residents' health. It is located in every room and has a relatively large surface area which, in addition, attracts microorganisms on an electrostatic basis.

Prevention is crucial for our health, especially allergy prevention. The fact that we are not allergic today does not mean that we will not be allergic next year. It is also important to increase immunity, which gets weakened in a polluted environment. The children who are exposed to a large amount of bacteria and microorganisms from dust have much lower immunity than others. You should remember that bacteria grow best in the places where it is warm. So a radiator that helps eliminate microorganisms is the right solution.
