Polymer Technologies Inc.® Delivers Antimicrobial-Coated Insulation Materials To Fast-Growth Market
Polymer Technologies – a leading supplier of acoustical and thermal composites – is ready to take on the booming global antimicrobial coatings demand projected to hit $2.9 billion by 2018.
NEWARK, DE – Polymer Technologies Inc., a leading supplier of antimicrobial-coated insulation, is ready to meet the demands of the burgeoning antimicrobial coatings market.
Today, the global antimicrobial coatings demand is estimated to be worth nearly $1.5 billion.
By 2018, global analysts project that the antimicrobial coatings market will soar to reach $2.9 billion – a growth of more than 11 percent – as construction and manufacturing projects require antimicrobial coatings to meet project mandates.
"By minimizing the presence of bacteria on surfaces, antimicrobial coatings are growing in popularity as a requirement for promoting greater health and wellness in public environments," reports Robert Prybutok, President and CEO of Polymer Technologies and a 30-year recognized expert in acoustic, thermal, and vibration mitigation materials.
"Antimicrobial coatings offer proven protection from microbial attachment by controlling growth of unwanted microbes, including bacteria, mold and fungi," Prybutok explains. "Effectively treated coatings enhance and protect clean environments when used in healthcare institutions, catering facilities, academic environments and other environments that contain a high traffic of people."
Polymer Technologies supplies an array of insulation materials, all of which are designed to handle the specific needs of their clientele. The materials exhibit exceptional resistance to heat, low flame propagation, and smoke while possessing exceptional thermal and acoustical insulation properties, and vibration and compression resilience. When enhanced with antimicrobial coatings, the insulation materials adhere to the strict mandates for antimicrobial-coated materials currently generated by most global growth markets.
Major growth segments for the antimicrobial coatings market include the HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) and Medical industries, with applications benefiting schools, hospitals, wellness centers and more. North America is expected to be the greatest user of antimicrobial coatings over the next five years, according to industry analysts – with applications in the Medical segment expected to show the highest demand, followed by applications requiring indoor air and mold remediation.
Currently, Polymer Technologies is supplying antimicrobial-coated insulation for a massive nine-story academic building renovation in Delaware. The renovation project, expected to run for more than 12 months, mandated the use of antimicrobial-coated insulation.
"Clearly, the demand for antimicrobial coatings is on the rapid rise due to the tremendous environmental and health benefits they afford," Prybutok states. "By minimizing the presence of bacteria on surfaces, antimicrobial coatings aid the foundation of environmentally responsible and health-conscious structures."
