The chemical and physical composition of our MAT® hygiene coatings is based on the natural structure of microorganisms. This enables hydrophobic interactions between the microorganisms and our products, which disrupts the integrity of the cell membrane so that it is destroyed by purely physical/mechanical action:

Without MAT® polymer coating
Microorganisms colonise the surface and can multiply.

With MAT® coating
Microorganisms are inactivated on contact with the MAT® coating.

Physical effect
There is no chemical reaction or ionic interaction

This purely physical/mechanical mechanism of action works particularly quickly, so that the antimicrobial effect sets in within a few minutes (example: Mundex L):

The MAT® coating is permanently effective as no active substances are released or emitted.

Illustration of antimicrobial efficacy

Different surface tension of germs and the surface.

Identical surface tension of germs and the surface.
