A revolutionary biocompatible & patented technology
The Parx technologies are incorporated in Saniconcentrates™ and these are made with the aid of our patented innovative techniques. The plastic receives an intrinsic change on micrometrical scale which results in antiseptic and antibacterial characteristics due to the improves mechanical/physical properties.
Using Saniconcentrates™ allows you to make the surface of your products more resistant to the attack by microbes and bacteria and make the surface more resistant to bio-film adhesion. Our technology delivers and antimicrobial performance of 99,9% or higher measures according to ISO 22196 or JIS Z2801. The technology does not rely on migration. The technology is not leaching out.
Saniconcentrates do not contain biocides. It mimics the defence mechanism of the human skin.
Saniconcentrates™ are produced with the aid of a bodies own trace-element, like it is present in the top layer of the human skin. In skin this trace-element is responsible for the defence mechanism agains bacteria and viruses. With the Parx technologies we create a similar defence mechanism in plastic and polymers.
ONLY ALLOWED SUBSTANCES
Silver and Nano-Silver are the most common solutions used today to make products antimicrobial. But we have to realize that silver is toxic to all living cells and contributes to antibiotic resistance. Nano-silver particularly leaches out of the product so it can be inhaled or digested and silver affects our waste water treatment methods.
The Parx Plastics technology is not using any harmful substance. It is completely biocompatible, non-toxic and 100% safe.
Nanoparticles are small, very small. So small that they cannot be controlled. That means they will always be able to exit the material they have been put into. Nano-particles can be really powerful and something powerful that cannot be controlled should be very well considered.
For these reasons Parx Plastics is not using nano particles or nano materials. Our technology is in micrometrical scale, perfectly under control.
JUST A bodies own TRACE ELEMENT
The Parx technology allows you to make a change in the mechanical/physical surface property of a product. And this changed property results in an antibacterial performance of 99,9% and higher.
We are not using biocides or pesticides, and we are not using silver, nano-silver, nanoparticles, Triclosan or any other harmful substance. We cleverly use one of the most abundant trace elements in the human body to create a surface that act against bacteria in a mechanical/physical way.
No leaching required
The technology realises an intrinsic, inert property change in and on the surface of the material. There is no migrating principle that creates the antimicrobial effect. The technology is intrinsic in the material.
Saniconcentrates™ allow you to reduce the amount of bacteria on the surface of a product/material by 99,9%* or more.
*proven by independent tests according to ISO 22196 and JIS Z2801
Only the natural trace element Zinc; an essential mineral present in food, necessary in our daily diet as it is vital for the human immune system.
An intrinsic, inert change in and on the surface of the material. There is no substance migrating or leaching to act against bacteria. The functionality is purely due to the improved mechanical/physical characteristics.
We do not use silver or Nano-silver. Silver is toxic and the use of such an ion-release mechanism can be hazardous as these elements can be inhaled or digested while their antibacterial property remains.
NO TRICLOSAN OR OTHER CHEMICALS
No Triclosan, quaternary ammonium salts, pyrithione or any other harmful or toxic chemicals.
NO NANOPARTICLES - NO NANO DIMENSION
Our technologies are on a micrometrical scale. We do not use nanoparticles or nano-materials. Nanoparticles will leave the material they have been integrated in and the functionality will degrades over time. Our micrometrical scale solutions is perfectly controllable and lasts forever.
The functionality is through and through in the material. So it is not just on the surface and it cannot wear off.
NO DEGRATION, LASTS A LIFETIME
Our technology does not migrate. So it does not loose its effectiveness and the technology does not wear out. It lasts forever.
NATURAL TRACE ELEMENT
Our materials are created by means of innovative technologies and methods with the clever use of one of the most important natural trace elements Zinc, which is securely incorporated without the possibility of exiting the material.
NO HARMFUL ADDITIVES
We are using newly discovered methods in combination with one of the most important natural trace elements. We do not use chemicals, pesticides, biocides, silver or other harmful substances.
UNAFFECTED BY TEMPERATURE
Temperature conditions do not influence the functionality of the technology.
UNAFFECTED BY SHAPE
The shape of a product does not influence the functionality of the technology.
UNAFFECTED BY LIGHT
Light has no influence on the performance of the technology.
ONLY AUTHORISED SUBSTANCES
We only use authorised (food grade) substances in our materials.
