HVAC and refrigeration systems are important, long-term investments for your customers. That's why they demand products that do double-duty while providing the best value for their money. Your customers are already familiar with the benefits of antimicrobial products. In fact, there is a good chance they are already using them in their own homes. When you offer them products and systems made with AgION® antimicrobial-coated steel, available from AK Coatings, Inc., a subsidiary of AK Steel Corporation, they'll see a clear product benefit that meets a growing consumer demand. Besides the antimicrobial properties, the AgION antimicrobial coating offers stain resistance, as well as a smoother surface, making AgION antimicrobial-coated steel easier to clean and maintain.
AgION antimicrobial coatings suppress the growth of microbes on HVAC components, keeping them cleaner. While the coatings are not meant to replace routine cleaning of these components, they can provide an effective tool in buildings where there is heightened concern about microbial growth, such as hospitals, nursing homes, daycare centers and schools.
And because the coating is applied to steel, it works throughout the complete system, on duct work, air handlers and diffusers, allowing you to deliver a comprehensive HVAC solution. So whether you are specifying equipment for schools, hospitals or business complexes, or designing, manufacturing or specifying equipment for use in homes, antimicrobial-coated steel gives you a clean advantage.
