ARCEO’s innovative coil coating

As part of its commitment to bringing added-value generation to its customers, specialty coil coater ARCEO ENGINEERING has recently developed, in collaboration with MICROBAN laboratory, a new functionality for producing bio-enhanced coatings. This new functionality, called BIOCLEAN, features anti-bacterial agents which can be integrated in conventional coatings.

Because bacteria can be found everywhere surviving as biofilms on solid surfaces, BIOCLEAN was designed to help provide protection against the spread of infection caused by direct contact of surfaces that are exposed either in public facilities or multiple-user-environments. BIOCLEAN is available on various existing indoor coatings commercialized by ARCEO ENGINEERING, for example ArenTouch or ArenNano Black Other indoor coatings can also be envisaged.

The coatings are available in various substrate thicknesses and widths. ArenTouch BioClean or ArenNano Black BioClean help reduce surface bacteria by more than 99% and improve the health environment of a large spectrum of end-users.

ARCEO ENGINEERING has also developed coatings to reduce energy loss. SHIELDARCEO is composed of a nanometric layer of pure aluminium applied by vacuum technology. It performs as a heat shield providing high reflectivity in the infrared and visible energy spectra and is capable of reducing energy loss by 50%. It is available either on stainless steel or flat carbon steel, provides excellent corrosion resistance with good formability and is useful wherever the need for high reflectivity combined with great mechanical properties and durability is required. On stainless steel, SHIELDARCEO preserves the aesthetical aspect of this material under high temperature (up to 600°C).
