Specialty Coating by VersaFlex Reduces Listeria and E. coli Growth By Almost 100%.
Recent third party tests conducted on a specially formulated pure polyurea system from VersaFlex have proven to reduce Listeria growth by over 99% and E. coli growth by over 96%.
Kansas City, KS – November 2, 2015 – VersaFlex Inc, a leading formulator and manufacturer of protective coatings, linings, and sealants is proud to announce that it has secured third-party test results on the GelFlex 1115-FR product to ensure antibacterial activity.
Recent third party tests conducted under ASTM E2180 on a specially formulated pure polyurea system from VersaFlex, GelFlex 1115-FR, have proven to reduce listeria monocytogenes growth by over 99% and Escherichia coli growth by over 96%.
GelFlex 1115-FR is a superior coating material designed specifically for industrial applications that are constantly under attack by microorganisms and harsh chemicals. It provides a high gloss finish that is approved by both the USDA, FDA, and FSIS.
VersaFlex GelFlex 1115-FR is a 100% solids, zero VOC, UV color stable, aliphatic polyurea coating system developed for commercial and industrial applications requiring high inhibition of microbial growth. The protective coating is abrasion resistant and has a very fast set/cure time that allows it be returned to service within minutes after application. This makes GelFlex 1115-FR ideal for use in food processing and manufacturing facilities that require fast turnaround and minimal disruption to production.
Another major advantage with GelFlex 1115-FR for use in food / hospital environments is its ability to stand up to, and resist, strong oxidizing chemicals such as cleaning solutions commonly and frequently used in these type facilities.
GelFlex 1115-FR also boasts an ASTM E84 Fire Rating and is a Class 1 Flame Resistant Approved Material.
GelFlex 1115-FR is a volatile free, low odor system, applied at a 1:1 mix ratio with plural component spray equipment. It can be applied at a thickness of 10 to 20 mils in a single application. GelFlex 1115-FR can be applied at temperatures as low as 20°F and is fully functional in exposure environments ranging from -15°F to 140°F.
Ideal for applications in:
- Anywhere an anti-microbial growth system is required
- Food Processing Facilities
- Clean Rooms
- Hospital and Healthcare Facilities
- Ready to Eat Food Processing Facilities
- Food Packaging Facilities
- Harsh applications where chemical resistance is needed
- Anywhere where color and gloss stability is desired
