Using a bodies own element, sustainable and 100% safe.
Parx developed a technology that departs from biomimicry. Making use of a bodies own trace element to make plastics resistant to biofilm adhesion and bacteria proliferation. No biocides, no silver, no nano-materials, no harmful or toxic substances and no migration.
An antibacterial property of 99,9% or more.
The Parx technology is build in in the manufacturing process of the plastic product and the technology becomes and intrinsic part of the material. The materials mechanical/physical properties have been improved to make the surface more resistant to adhesion and bacteria proliferation.
ISO22196 and JIS Z28001 tests prove an antibacterial performance of 99,9% or higher.
FOOD SAFETY AND FRESHNESS
Keep food fresh for longer and deliver the highest level of food safety. Preventing cross-contamination and preventing the adhesion and proliferation of bacteria on food contact surfaces and packaging. Reducing the risks of outbreaks, reducing bad smell, improving the freshness of the product and ultimately improving the quality and the shelf life. Learn more…
PIPES & DRAINS
Preventing clogging, leakages and providing the utmost safety when it comes to clean water supply and drainage. The improved mechanical properties of plastics realised with Parx technologies result in the prevention of adhesion of biofilm and bacteria. No biofilm build-up in pipes and tubes prevents clogging and leakages. It improves the overall hygiene and prevents outbreaks. With the Parx technologies there is also a build-in protection against legionella that normally grows very well in in these conditions. Learn more…
AGAINST MOLD AND DISCOLORATION
The technology also works against mold growth. Preventing mold growth, means preventing discolouration, preventing black dots and preventing the compromising of the material strenght. Keeping materials sanitised and stronger. Providing a longer lasting durability. Learn more…
Probably the topmost risk related to medical implants is: risk of infection. Plus, biofilm formation on implant surfaces shelters the bacteria and encourages persistence of infection. Preventing biofilm and the proliferation of bacteria on the surface of the implants with the biocompatible technology of Parx mimics the defense mechanism of the human immune system. Increasing the safety of plastic materials in hospital environments dramatically reduces the nosocomial problems of contaminations and infections common in these environments. Learn more…
OVERAL IMPROVED HYGIENE
The benefits of a more hygienic surface are countless and the applications are endless. It can offer great peace of mind for your customers using the product and can be leveraged as a good intrinsic value. The safety of a material is a value regardless of the type of application; Parx technologies adds an important technical property for all applications. Learn more…
