New Product for Railway Application EN45545-2 – Senoplast Introduces Antibacterial Surfaces for senosan C60FR-5
Senoplast introduces an antibac version of the rail material called senosan C60FR-5 antibac (EN45545-2: Applications R1 and R6 with HL2). The halogen-free flame retardant PC/ABS sheet with a matt surface fulfils the requirements of ISO 22196, measurement of antibacterial activity on plastic (tested at W.H.U. GmbH, Austria) and still fulfils the stringent requirements of EN45545-2, application R1 with HL2 in thickness range 2mm to 5mm (tested at Brandhaus Rhein/Main, Germany).
Avoiding or minimizing germs on plastic surfaces is an enormous challenge these days. The growth of microbes and germs on surfaces is in many ways an undesirable effect and represents a hygiene risk. Many bacteria are transmitted via the hands and find a quick spread through the jointly used contact surfaces. In the railway sector the seating areas and wall applications in areas of crowds (train sets, railway stations) are particularly affected – antibacterial surfaces are intended to remedy this.
The possible application of the material: wall claddings, roof panels, seats, etc.
