Mundex W is a specially modified water-based polymer emulsion based on special polymer blends. After curing, Mundex W shows strong antimicrobial properties which are exclusively due to hydrophobic interactions of the cured polymer emulsion with the cell membrane of microorganisms. This antimicrobial effect is purely physical/mechanical and not due to chemical or ionic interactions. Chemical and physical properties of the polymer coating have been modelled on the natural structure of microorganisms to the greatest possible extent. Mundex W is free of biocides and nanoparticles.
Antimicrobial effect tested by independent testing laboratories:
> 99.99 % against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria (tested according to JIS Z 2801 / ISO 22196 against Staphylococcus aureus, E. Coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa)
> 99 % against Legionella (tested according to JIS Z2801 / ISO 22196 against Legionella pneumophila, effect within 4 hours)
> 99 % against enveloped viruses (tested according to screening test S2 based on the RKI guideline (1995) and ISO 21702:2019 against coronaviruses, effect within 8 hours)
