About Trovex Activ:ion

Trovex Activ:ion is one of the most powerful antimicrobial PVC cladding systems available. It’s ideally suited for walls and doors in healthcare environments, where bacteria breed quickly and circulate freely.

Activ:ion has been proven in the most demanding health environments, such as operating theatres and other infection- controlled areas. It comprehensively outperforms other wall finishes including stainless steel, reducing viable microbes by up to 99.9%, including dangerous bacteria like Streptococcus faecalis, Salmonella typhimurium and MRSA.

Activ:ion uses homogenous silver ion technology to provide a naturally antibacterial finish that prevents microbes from reproducing. Cladding and doorsets from the Activ:ion range are simple to install, fire-resistant and easy to clean.

Activ:ion is proven to reduce the growth of all tested pathogens, including those resistant to antibiotics. In field tests, it outperforms other wall finishes including stainless steel many times over, even weeks after cleaning.

Activ:ion can be used to clad walls and encapsulate doors, providing you with a hygienic, healthy environment that you can trust.

Activ:ion uses Biomaster Antimicrobial Technology:

  • Biomaster binds to the cell wall: Preventing growth
  • The Biomaster IONS interrupt enzyme production: Stopping the cell producing energy
  • Biomaster interrupts the cell’s DNA: Preventing replication

When hygiene matters, Activ:ion delivers.

Lab tests

Activ:ion has been independently tested at recognised microbiology laboratories in the UK, using the ISO 22196:2011 standard. The tests assess the reduction of viable microbes after 24 hours’ contact with Activ:ion, focusing on ten of the most dangerous and commonly encountered pathogens.

Efficiency Results
Results showed that Activ:ion reduced the incidence of CFUs
(‘colony-forming units’ or ‘viable cells’) by at least 87%, with
some microbes reduced by as much as 99.9%.

Activ:ion’s proactive formulation reduces viable bacteria by 80% in just 15 minutes, and over 99.9% after two hours.
The continuous activity means that you always have full protection.
