ABF® Antibacterial Finish
Even if we do not notice, bacteria often accumulate on the handles of every environment: houses, urban spaces, accommodation facilities, public areas, or hospitals. Becchetti Bal has decided to propose an innovative coating that can be done on any finish, combining the elegance of the Made in Italy handles, and the antibacterial and antimicrobial effects that we all need in our homes.
The ABF finish is a transparent top-coating that can be applied to all indoor and outdoor products. It is a paint product composed of a polymeric base with the ability to release silver ions that act directly on all microorganisms that are harmful to health: thanks to its direct action on bacteria, microorganisms, and microbes, is the right finishing for all Becchetti Bal items for the home, public environments, and all places that need special hygiene.
ABF immediately eliminates more than 99% of microbes and bacteria within 24h, also has a lasting effect throughout the life of the coating. It is recommended only a gentle cleaning common to all painted surfaces.
