Several companies are claiming that their coatings could last for months. However, no such data has been generated or proof available in support of their claims. Specially, if coating is less than 1 micron, it is difficult to believe those claims. We at Flora Coatings have compared a competitive commercial product with INVESIL. The commercial product was applied as received and tested using Taber Abrasion as per ASTM.
INVESIL coating could last much longer than any other commercial antimicrobial product
“It has been demonstrated that INVESIL could last significantly longer than other commercial products.”

It was demonstrated that competitive product started showing failure from the first wear cycle. Each wear cycle could be a representation of time (days/week/months). Most acrylic or PU based coatings containing EPA registered pesticides can’t pass such rigorous tests and deemed to failed on first hard rub.
