One simple way to reduce the spread of viruses in Australia

Imagine a battle where shaking hands can be more lethal than dodging bullets. Where you rehearse not for the outbreak of a war, but for the spread of a virus.

We all know, viruses are invisible but can be deadly. We can’t see them, we can’t feel them, we can’t taste them. But they are there. Most viruses contaminate through surface transfer. That tabletop you just touched, that locker door you just opened, that toilet cubicle you just locked…

We know a virus is relatively easy to destroy on a surface using a simple disinfectant, however, we also know it’s practically impossible to sanitise a surface all the time, and cleaning a surface doesn’t guarantee that it won’t get contaminated again. So what exactly do we need? We need a surface that provides safety not only from bacteria and fungus but from viruses too. That’s why we’re introducing the Durasafe® 13mm Compact Laminate now with antiviral protection as well (+ the antibacterial and antifungal protection that it’s always had). This means 99.9% of viruses that come in contact with the Durasafe® Compact Laminate will die.

So how do the antiviral properties work? These antiviral properties are developed under SAFEGUARD PLUS™ technology which involves modifying the resin formulations such that the bioactive ingredients completely disperse with resin and retain their efficacy in the thermoset product. This technology ensures that the product is manufactured with the benefits of being Antiviral, Antibacterial and Antifungal. At the same time, we ensure to control the VOC emission levels as per the Greenguard Gold standards. So essentially, as soon as the virus comes onto the clean surface, the Safeguard Plus retards and kills these viruses ensuring it’s a safe surface.

We all need to protect each other. Durasafe® 13mm antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral Compact Laminate will help us keep each other safe. You can’t afford to be without it!
