Steracon Byotrol Decontamination System.

Specialist Technical Decontamination System incorporates the Decontamination Solution, a primer, an intermediate coat and a finishing coat, all containing the additive Byotrol that repels bacteria and offers effective protection against a variety of microbial, bacterial, fungal agents.

The Midas Paints Tygervalley’s Steracon Byotrol Decontamination System was developed in association with microbiologists in response to a growing need for antimicrobial, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal coatings that offer effective protection against a variety of microbial, fungal agents. Midas Paints Tygervalley is proud to offer the Steracon Byotrol Decontamination System which is a highly specialised range of products all containing Byotrol™ – an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-microbial additive with an active ingredient that repels microbial, bacterial, fungal agents and other potentially harmful microbes by working directly as a fast acting biocide at low temperatures. Its polymer structure is believed to create nano surface tension differences that inhibit microbial attachment.

Please note:
The Steracom System components while not exclusive in use the Decontamination Solution must always be used.
The range of paints and decontamination solutions is supplied by Midas Paints, the application is independently managed and monitored by Qualytech. A 3-year warranty is supplied – extendable indefinitely with a maintenance contract.

BYOTROL™ combines a physical effect with an array of biocides for chemical control. BYOTROL™ contains non-chemical bonds which create a high & low surface tension on the coated surfaces or bio-film. Bio-film severely impedes micro-organisms’ ability to reproduce and grow. Microbes reproduce by division, but this process needs to take place on a stable surface. Attachment to a surface is prevented, the bacterium cannot reproduce. BYOTROL gives the surface of the coating a higher vibrational energy, ensuring that harmful microbes do not settle on it and proliferate. In turn, this makes the micro-organisms more vulnerable to the small amount of biocides contained in the coating, which together builds an effective hygienic shield.

Steracon is ideal for commercial and medical environments, such as Tuberculosis(TB) Wards, High Care Units, Surgical Wards, abattoirs, hospitals, wine production facilities and any other areas that need protection against harmful microbes.

Steracon is also widely used in domestic environments to clean and hygienic and is more and more frequently being specified for bathrooms, saunas, showers and exterior walls that get no sunlight, these types of environments have a tendency to accumulate fungal growth.

Steracon Byotrol Decontamination System includes the following products:
1) Decontamination Solution
2) Solvent Based Masonry Primer
3) Sheen Finishing coat.

All 3 products above have been certified as free of Organo halogens making them safe to be used in wineries.

Note that Byotrol™ carries SABS 1853 approval as well as meeting numerous European and International standards of quality and safety.
Byotrol™ is environmentally friendly and carries no danger for humans since its physical and chemical effect is targeted at microscopic level.

Application of Decontamination Solution:

Apply Byotrol Decontamination Solution using brush or hand spray depending on the area and extent of fungal growth.

  1. Apply a coat of Decontamination Solution liberally taking care not to damage the microbial growth. Allow to penetrate and take effect for 6 hours.
  2. Scrub surface thoroughly with water.
  3. Apply a coat of Decontamination Solution and allow to dry before over coating.

Points 1 and 3 might need to be repeated for heavy growth.

SPREAD RATE
Decontamination Solution -Depends on the absorbency of the surface.
Masonry Primer-± 7m²/litre
Low Sheen Finishing Coat-± 9m²/litre/coat

NOTE: The spread rates quoted are approximate and should only be used as a guide as the actual rate will vary depending on the condition and porosity of the substrate.

OVERCOATING TIME
Decontamination Solution ->6 hrs
Masonry Primer->12hrs
Low Sheen Finishing Coat->6hrs

NOTE: It is very important that over coating times, as set out for the various products, are adhered to and also that the prevailing weather conditions are taken into account. Ambient and substrate temperatures, humidity and wind etc. can influence drying times of all coatings. Performance problems can occur if any of the previous coats have not been allowed to dry properly before being over coated. CLEANERS/SOLVENTS

Water

IMPORTANT: To prevent surface contamination, coatings must not be left longer than 48 hours between coats. If environmental or weather conditions have caused surface contamination, all surfaces must be thoroughly washed down before applying the next coating.
