What does antimicrobial mean?
Antimicrobial is used to describe substances which demonstrate the ability to reduce the presence of microbes, such as bacteria and mold.

What’s the difference between antimicrobial and antibacterial?
Antimicrobial Technology is effective against a wide spectrum of microbes: this includes bacteria, mold, fungi and even viruses. Antibacterial Technology, on the other hand, is only effective against bacteria.

SciCron’s antibacterial technology will offer lasting protection from bacteria, including superbugs such as MRSA and E. Coli.  The coating contains antiviral technology that makes the active ingredient effective against viruses, such as the prevalent H1N1 influenza virus.  It is perfect for use in hygiene conscious environments where clean-ability, scratch resistance, and the transfer of microbes is a concern.  AMC-800™ Anti-Microbial Clear coating is infused with permanent antimicrobial that will not leech, cause discoloration, nor affect the final product.

*Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have categorized the SARS-CoV-2 virus at biohazard level 3 and above, meaning the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus will not be available for public commercial testing at this point in the pandemic

*Testing to the BS ISO 21702:2019 standard, SciCron’s AMC-800 active ingredient was proven effective against feline coronavirus, strain Munich, with a reduction of 90% in 2 hours.  This should not be used for claims against the novel virus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), but it does demonstrate the antiviral efficacy of this technology against a member of the coronavirus family, the feline coronavirus, strain Munich.  Actual COVID-19 and other antimicrobial evaluations of our products are ongoing, results are expected in the future.

SciCron Technologies’ AGM-700 Anti-Glare/Anti-Microbial and AMC-800 Anti-Microbial Clear are scientifically proven antimicrobial technology that will provide lasting and effective protection against harmful bacteria, mold, fungi and viruses by up to 99.99%.

Articles within hygiene-critical environments are known to harbor pathogenic bacteria and other microbes for extended periods of time; the H1N1 genome, in particular, is reported to survive on surfaces for up to 24 hours. This combined with the increased prevalence of antibiotic resistance and reports that cleaning agents are having a reduced effect on microbial colonization.

AGM-700 Anti-Glare/Anti-Microbial and AMC-800 Anti-Microbial Clear are hydrophobic, easy to clean, cost effective, robust, hard coatings with very good antimicrobial properties. The coatings are designed for barrier surfaces and high touch applications, but it can be used where antimicrobial properties are needed on most plastic surfaces. 

AGM-700 and AMC-800 are suitable in locations such as mass transit, hospitals, schools, food processing plants, and restaurants. (Not FDA approved for food contact)
