Steven Reinstadtler, Industrial Marketing Manager – Coatings at Covestro LLC
For the hospital administrator who is concerned with meeting the newer CDC (Center for Disease Control) and TJC (The Joint Commission) protocols without sacrificing aesthetics and durability, there are new developments in architectural coating technologies for targeted hospital environments that require a higher frequency of cleaning with harsher disinfectants. These novel coatings technologies offer improved durability and resistance to harsh cleaners and disinfectants without sacrificing appearance. The discussion will cover some of the requirements, chemicals involved, testing and case history related to this topic.
