In the last years, there has been a growing interest in the surface treatment of the furniture with antimicrobial properties. The surface treatments resistant to bacteria and fungi are used mainly in the places where the microbes incidence is increased. There are, for example, the furniture for the public spaces, kitchen furniture, hospital furniture, etc. Our microbiological laboratory offers the testing of the antibacterial properties according to the valid legal and technical standards.

Scope of testing::

  • JIS Z 2801 Antibacterial Products–Test for Antibacterial Activity and Efficacy
  • ISO 22196 Measurement of antibacterial activity on plastics and other non–porous surfaces
  • EN 15457 Paints and varnishes – Laboratory method for testing the efficacy of film preservatives in a coating           against fungi
  • EN ISO 846 method A, B Plastics – Evaluation of the action of microorganisms
  • EN ISO 846 method C Plastics – Evaluation of the action of microorganisms
  • EN ISO 20645 Textile fabrics – Determination of antibacterial activity – Agar diffusion plate test
  • EN ISO 20743 Textiles – Determination of antibacterial activity of textile products
  • AATCC 100 Assessment of Antibacterial Finishes on Textile Materials
  • AATCC 147 Antibacterial Activity Assessment of Textile Materials
