antimicrobial coating with Nano-Care
Conventional disinfectants are good. The use of antimicrobial coatings the perfect additional protection around the clock. These have a lasting effect and provide lasting protection. What can be annoying or even dangerous to people, LiquidGuard kills. Bacteria, fungi and special viruses. Especially in times of a spreading pandemic, questions of hygiene and infection control are coming into focus. We at Nano-Care provide the answers. With solutions that last: Liquid Guard – successfully tested against SARSCoV-2.
In times of infection waves and multi-resistant pathogens, protection means one thing above all: precaution. Frequent hand washing, wearing mouth and nose protection, and keeping a safe distance should prevent common ways of infection. Routes of infection are airborne via aerosols or surfaces with the risk of smear infections. Our antimicrobial coatings are effective against the latter. As permanent surface disinfection
What antimicrobial coatings do in the pandemic
- Virucidal efficacy. Efficiently combats SARSCoV-2 and influenza A.Antibacterial
- surfaces. Broad bactericidal effects, even against multi-resistant germs thanks to physical mode of action.
- Fungicide against fungi and spores. Common sources of infection are bathrooms and showers or even fitness equipment. LiquidGuard promises a permanent fungicidal function.
- Mildew Inhibiting. Smooth, fibrous and unstructured surfaces benefit from a long-term fungicidal effect.
- Odor-inhibiting. The anti-fouling effect results from the antibacterial activity. Decay processes are contained.
- Dermatologically tested. Clothing or mouth masks have an antimicrobial effect and guarantee skin-friendly protection against infection.

Your advantages of our antimicrobial coatings
Easy to use & compatible.
Even though with LiquidGuard modern technologies work on the nano level. Self-disinfecting surfaces on clothing and furniture are dermatologically flawless and come without substances of concern such as SVHC, fluorine or PBT.
Due to its specific composition, antimicrobial coating LiquidGuard combines the competencies of an established surface protection with permanent disinfection. Increased scratch resistance meets sustainable surface disinfection.
Surfaces made of glass or plastic are smooth only at first glance. Only under the microscope does it become clear: unevenness and cratered landscapes everywhere. Sealants such as LiquidGuard smooth out this relief and thus increase durability.
The secret of success!
LiquidGuard can celebrate lasting success as an antimicrobial surface protection. This distinguishes our product from conventional disinfectants. Of course: Substances such as chlorine dioxide or hydrogen peroxide also have a bactericidal and sporicidal effect. Their mode of action is chemical, in that they split off oxygen as an oxidizing agent. But this means that their effect is limited in time. Nano-Care represents a paradigm shift in the field of infection control. With the antimicrobial coatings of LiquidGuard, we transform surfaces into sharp-edged blade fields of carbon molecules. At the nanoscale, we thus translate bactericidal, virucidal and fungicidal action into the physical. Where chemical processes lead to the death of microbes in conventional disinfectants, in antimicrobial coatings negatively charged cell walls are attracted by positively charged nitrogen molecules. The result: the sharp-edged surface structure physically destroys the cell wall of pathogens. The bacterium decays.

LiquidGuard. Your professional for antimicrobial coating
Where antimicrobial coatings are indispensable. For sustainable protection against infection.
Via antimicrobial coating LiquidGuard, you receive a self-disinfecting surface treatment that has a lasting effect. The advantage of durability results from the modified surface structure, which allows carbon molecules to protrude with sharp edges.
Sources of infection are often outside. Dangerous sources are droplets or aerosols. And of course contact/smear infections via surfaces. Sick and elderly people depend on increased hygiene standards. LiquidGuard has a bactericidal, virucidal and fungicidal effect in hospitals as permanent protection against infection:
- Ultrasound heads, stethoscopes or electrodes
- handrails, door handles, bed frames or table tops
- medical equipment

Nursing homes and homes for the elderly are also a focus of infection prevention. Similar to hospitals, operators can benefit from comprehensive antimicrobial surface protection. LiquidGuard offers permanent infection protection as surface protection. You can profit from
- Control panels in intensive care or quarantine wards
- Surfaces with a high risk of infection (e.g. door handles & shelves)
- Floor coverings and sanitary facilities
When it comes to initial care at the scene of an accident or medical emergency, rescue services perform vital work. In this respect, ambulances resemble mobile medical practices or small hospitals. At least in terms of basic equipment and, of course, hygienic standards. Contact and smear infections also pose risks here. By using antimicrobial coatings such as LiquidGuard, you eliminate surfaces as potential carriers of germs in emergency vehicles. Sustainable and permanent.Get in touch

- Garden & Terrace. Awnings and sunsails are antimicrobial protected.
- Bath & Shower. Towels & shower curtains. Condensing water and severe temperature fluctuations promote mold.
These questions are frequently asked about antimicrobial coating.
Basically, an antimicrobial coated surface is like a field of blades. The molecules form strong tips that literally slash the cell walls of the germs. This is where the bactericidal, virucidal and fungicidal effect comes from.
Wherever surface disinfection is indispensable. Primarily hospitals, old people’s homes or doctors’ surgeries, i.e. in areas where minor infections can be potentially dangerous – among the sick and elderly. Under the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the problem of infection control became part of everyday consciousness and predestined antimicrobial coatings as solutions for the entire public sector: buses, trains, schools or universities.
The advantage of antimicrobial coatings is their broad spectrum of activity. In contrast to antibacterial surface treatments, coatings such as LiquidGuard from Nano-Care sustainably restructure surfaces at the nano level, guaranteeing permanent solutions not only through bactericidal, but also virucidal and fungicidal properties.
In fact, independent institutes have demonstrated efficacy against the influenza A and SARS TGEV viruses. It can therefore be concluded that the antimicrobial coating LiquidGuard is also effective against the globally rampant SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is commonly known as the coronavirus and causes the lung disease COVID-19.
