Zonitise antimicrobial coatings reduce cross contamination risk and take hygiene to new heights.

Bunzl Catering Supplies is launching the UK’s first and only antimicrobial laundry additive. Zonitise Antimicrobial Laundry Additive is a revolutionary new product that infuses machine-washable fabrics with continuous antimicrobial protection against many harmful pathogens and bacteria that cause odours and degrade fabric. Traditional laundry detergent gets clothes clean, but is not effective against germs and other bacteria, which can remain and multiply on clothes and laundry between washes. Zonitise Antimicrobial Laundry Additive provides constant antimicrobial protection that not only helps the user stay healthy but keeps washing smelling fresher for longer.

The product is the only one of its kind in the UK and provides long-lasting protection against germs and odours between washes. Hypoallergenic, perfume and dye-free, the laundry additive is non-bleaching and safe for all machine washable fabrics at all temperatures. Working alongside laundry detergent, Zonitise Antimicrobial Laundry Additive protects for up to 5 washes.

Zonitise Antimicrobial Laundry Additive is manufactured by Zonitise, a UK family-owned  manufacturer and distributor of antimicrobial coatings, whose mission is to reduce cross contamination risk and take hygiene to new heights in all environments. With revolutionary antimicrobial technology, and a full non-toxic cleaning methodology, Zonitise not only help organizations prevent infection and save lives but are able to save significant costs on traditional cleaning materials, labour, and consumables, whilst at the same time improving hygiene compared to traditional disinfecting.*

Bunzl Catering Supplies is also launching Zonitise Protect Antimicrobial Spray, a long-lasting antimicrobial surface spray that can be applied to any type of surface to provide continuous protection against many different viruses, bacteria, mould, algae, odours and fungi for up to 60 days.

It is the only antimicrobial coating to be verified to achieve a 99.9% kill of Sars Cov2 within 10 minutes, 47 days after being applied to the surface. Zonitise is applied in moments but protects for months and is an intelligent inclusion in a hygiene regime to keep surfaces self-sanitizing between cleaning cycles.

Zonitise Protect Antimicrobial Spray can be applied to any surface and remains active against contamination for up to 60 days, designed to accompany existing cleaning regimes it prevents mould and eliminates odours and is EPA and FDA approved.
