Coala Coversafe from Antalis protects against COVID-19

Coala Coversafe from Antalis protects against COVID-19
Antalis UK has announced that its transparent antimicrobial film Coala Coversafe is effective against SARS-CoV 2, the virus responsible for COVID-19.

 At the Department of Virology in the University of Limoges, surfaces of Coala Coversafe adhesive films activated by Pylote technology were compared to similar control surfaces without the technology in an environment reproducing extreme conditions of use (eg grease and dirt). The results were as follows: contact of the Coala film Coversafe with the BASA strain of the human coronavirus SARS-CoV 2 induced a 1.42 log decrease in viral load after a contact time of one hour, which represents an efficiency of 96 percent, persisting after 10 days of culture.

The performance of Coala Coversafe has also proven successful in the real conditions of a school where the surfaces (eg doors, self-catering tables) equipped with Coala Coversafe films revealed a decrease in the total flora present of between two to four times, thus further demonstrating a decrease in microbiological transmission risk.

Mike Collins, Product Manager at Antalis, commented: “In the context of this ongoing health crisis, we are delighted with the success of the results of these tests which demonstrate the effectiveness of Coala Coversafe against the strains responsible for COVID-19 and other microbes. This innovation enables us to offer our customers, and their clients, a solution that allows them to continue their activities with improved protection.”

Available from stock in roll format for wide surface applications, Coala Coversafe can also be cut to size for applications such as door handles, etc., and thus adapts itself to all clients’ needs.
