The different transformations of the microbial flora and of the living beings have increased the need of protection against pathogens.
Now, those expectations are no longer limited to medical environment: all sectors (health, hygiene…) are concerned.
To meet these expectations, Trelleborg has evolved its product "TRELLJET 681", "high pressure cleaning hose with textile reinforcement", with an antimicrobial protection cover.
The new TRELLJET 681 AP is suitable for all environments where bacteria are concerned: cleaning companies, food industries, slaughterhouses, pharmaceutical, packaging/bottling, health care institutions, schools, public areas…
Advantages of the new cover
What does antimicrobial mean?
An antimicrobial is an agent which inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungi on the surface of product.
Why would we want an antimicrobial product?
Antimicrobial products are efficient for:
Prevent degradation & breakdown from bacterial attacks
Prevent odors and stain due to bacteria
Fully integrated and active, guarantying sustainable antimicrobial protections along the hose cover.
To evaluate the antimicrobial efficiency, Trelljet 681 Antimicrobial Protection has been tested by accredited laboratory in reference to the International Standard ISO 22196: 2007 (Measurement of antibacterial activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces) on a representative panel of bacteria and fungi:
1 / Bacteria
- Klebsielle pneumonia
- Methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus
- Staphylococcus aureus
2 / Fungi
- Aspergillus Niger
- Trichoderma Virens
Obtained results show a drastic reduction in bacterial activity up to 98% depending on the bacterium and an interruption to 99.9% of the growth of fungus.
» High flexibility and kink resistance
» Antimicrobial protection
» Non-staining smooth cover
» Crush resistant due to the textile reinforcement
