Health hazards due to the risks of infection cause enormous costs throughout the world and continue to create negative headlines. The Sanitized® hygiene function helps to reduce the growth and spread of microorganisms that are particularly problematic such as clostridia and antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as MRSA, VRE and NDM-1.
Affected are healthcare and nursing care facilities, hospitals, dental offices, home healthcare services and clinics for the treatment or prevention of diseases. The Sanitized® technology is based on active ingredients that can be added directly to your polymer or textile products during manufacturing, protecting them against microbes around the clock. This is especially important on surfaces that are frequently contaminated with germs and require ongoing protection even between cleaning cycles.
Clean Zone Fact: In the USA, there are around 99,000 deaths attributable to HAI; in Europe, the number is 37,000. 20 to 40 percent of all HAI cases result from cross-contamination (Source: WHO)
