Litokol, in collaboration with the Department of Biomedical Sciences (Microbiology section) of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, has created Starlike® Defender, the first sealant which kills up to 99,9% of the bacteria represented by the main strains of Staphylococcus Aureus and Eschirichia Coli.
Test results: the sample showed clear antibacterial qualities, killing up to 99.9% of bacteria. This characterises the tested product as being perfectly compatible with the functional needs of environments with strict hygiene requirements.
