Linetec has added antimicrobial technology to select fluoropolymer finish systems for exterior and interior architectural metal surfaces, such as curtainwalls, doors, windows, entrances, panels and columns.

The technology will inhibit the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria on high-touch aluminum surfaces for health care facilities, educational campuses and other buildings, the company says.


The silver-ion exchange mechanism infused in the metal coatings will inhibit the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria, according to the manufacturer.

Select high-performance polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) finishes, such as Kynar-branded coatings, will feature the technology, Linetec says.

How it Works

Linetec says the antimicrobial formulation can help to prevent deterioration of the physical properties of the coating.

“When moisture is present, the silver ion exchange mechanism infused into Linetec’s select finishes acts to disrupt the growth of such stain and odor-causing bacteria,” the company explains.

Linetec is a major paint and anodize finisher located in Wausau, WI.
