This material comprises inert minerals and acrylic polymer. Its surface is non-porous, which means that any usual dirt deposits or infiltration by moisture are prevented. This gives the material antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties, since mould and bacteria find no surface footings or favourable conditions for their development and proliferation. These bacteriostatic properties, which in the case of Tecnoril® are characteristic throughout the material, are generally enough to guarantee product hygiene for the vast majority of applications. To meet the highest requirements of protection from bacterial contamination, a nano-technology-based coating has recently been developed, which can be applied on request. It gives the material high bactericidal properties, which rather than halting the proliferation of bacterial cells allows a rapid and gradual reduction of any bacteria that has come into contact with the surface of this material, making Tecnoril® not only a bacteriostatic material but also a bactericidal material.
