Challenges and Solutions

Your team is designing a new endoscope system, and needs to ensure the control panel stays as hygienic as possible during use.
AM T203L is the film to choose. Designed to suit membrane touch switches, this film provides excellent haptic feedback even through surgical gloves, and helps to improve safety by inhibiting microbe growth on the panel’s surface.
Your business fits out for restaurants, cafés, and commercial kitchens, and you’re looking for a value-add to help clients save labor by keeping surfaces clean and hygienic for longer and reduce the risk of food poisoning.
AM F153 L fits the bill for preparation surfaces, benches, and tables. The hardcoat resists wear and tear from staff and customers for longer service life, and the fine texture is easy to clean. What’s more, the antimicrobial agent acts 24/7 to inhibit bacterial growth between regular cleans, reducing the likelihood of accidental contamination and associated legal risks.

Frequently Asked Questions

This will depend on your existing regular cleaning cycles. Autotex® AM does not replace cleaning—instead, it inhibits microbial growth between your normal cleans to cut the risk of cross-contamination and infection. It’s important to maintain your existing cleaning schedule even when using Autotex® AM.

Please ask our friendly Sales team, who will be happy to supply you with the specifications to help you make a decision.
