How powder coating is changing healthcare

Antibacterial powder coatings help to create a safe and hygienic environment, whilst saving the healthcare industry money.

At Tomburn we provide clients in the medical sector with a simple and effective way of preventing the spread of germs and improving the longevity of their equipment and facilities.

Our antibacterial powder coatings are used by hospitals, doctor’s surgeries and dentists to create a protective coating on equipment and facilities within their buildings.

The coating can be used on a variety of materials including aluminium and galvanised steel.  It is frequently applied to lifts, hospital beds, medical trolleys, equipment and offices.

You can find more on Tomburn's work in medical powder coating in the Sectors part of our site.

Benefits of antibacterial coatings

The many benefits of applying an antibacterial powder coating include:

  • Creates a safe and hygienic environment.
  • Protects from corrosion.
  • Easier to clean.
  • Aesthetically pleasing.
  • Improves longevity of equipment.
  • Saves money on repairs and replacements.
  • Available in large variety of colours and finishes.

Protects patients from bacteria and infection

Patients recovering from illnesses or operations are vulnerable to contracting infections.  It’s essential that healthcare facilities take extra care to create an environment that is hygienic and protects patients against bacteria.

Antibacterial powder coatings can prevent the growth of dangerous bacteria like E. Coli, staph and MRSA that pose the biggest threat to recovering patients.

Saves the healthcare industry money

The healthcare industry can always benefit from saving money, and powder coatings offer a simple and effective way of improving the longevity of medical facilities and equipment. Powder coating is far thicker and more resistant than standard paint, meaning that it can endure knocks, chips and scratches without damage.  Protecting expensive healthcare facilities and equipment using a powder coating helps to reduce the costs associated with repairs and replacements to save the industry money.
