Kastus Metal is a novel antimicrobial coating for metal surfaces including steel and aluminium. Kastus Metal has been developed from a platform technology designed and validated for the aerospace and automotive industries.

Kastus Metal uses our patented* antimicrobial additives to deliver a clear, thin, scratch resistant antimicrobial bright finish on bare and treated metal surfaces.

Antimicrobial resistance to gram positive, negative and spore forming pathogens has been achieved by by an inventive patented step using both metal and organic based additives. The hybrid coating has been designed to adhere to all metal surfaces with thicknesses ranging from 0.5 to 10 microns. Combining organic and inorganic functionalities has enabled this coating to be chemically resistant to strong acids/bases, detergents and cleaning agents.
