A3 Surfaces

antimicrobial anodized aluminium

A product like no other, a patented technology

A3 Surfaces With its innovative solution, A3Surfaces can make your anodized aluminum products bacteria-free. This patented technology can eliminate 99.99% of bacteria in seconds. By destroying the microorganisms on treated surfaces, this technology also eliminates problems stemming from the transfer of microorganisms, and the diseases they carry, through various vectors (door handles, pusher plates, stair handrail, support brackets, toys, medical tools, etc.). Each surface receives an advanced treatment which guaranties the durability of the treatment. No product on the market surpasses the effectiveness of A3S.

Patented in 2013, the technology used by A3Surfaces Inc. allows the integration of antimicrobial agents directly in the anodized layer (inside) of any aluminum product. With this technology, we can treat surfaces against pathogens based on the product used in the treatment. Unlike other bacteriostatic products (that prevent growth), our products are bactericidal. In other words, they destroy bacteria in seconds.

Thanks to their antimicrobial properties, the treated surfaces will prevent the transmission of infectious diseases. Various types of commercial, industrial, and institutional surfaces can be treated against bacteria. This treatment is actually suitable for any object that comes into contact with many people in a short amount of time (e.g. door handles, pusher plates, etc.). By treating these surfaces with its antimicrobial solution, A3S wants to significantly decrease germ transmission between the persons touching a product.

DID YOU KNOW?

Each year, more than 200,000 Canadians contract an infection in health institutions (called nosocomial infections or HAI (healthcare associated infections).

At any given moment, 1.4 million persons are suffering from nosocomial infections.

10% of Canadian adults will contract a disease by a HAI.

8,000 to 12,000 patients die each year from a HAI.

It costs between $2,000 and $20,000 to treat a HAI infected patient. In Quebec only, it represents $200 millions in costs each year.

Since the nose and the mouth are the main routes of entry for microorganisms and a person touches their face 2 to 3 times every minute (and touches about as many surfaces (objects, door handles, structures), hands are an important vector of microorganism transmission.

These data relate to infections contracted in health centers, but the routes and methods of infection transmission are diverse.
