BT1 is the healthiest sealant for hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare institutes. BT1 has been tested and proven to reduce bacteria and prevent the spread of mould and fungus. It boasts over 25 accreditations, easily making BT1 the most trustworthy sanitary sealant for use in public health institutes. One of its most prestigious accreditations comes from The Norwegian Asthma and Allergy Association.
The NAAF logo is a highly sought-after accreditation, but it also happens to be one of the hardest accreditations to receive. Both BT1 and CT1 have been awarded this highly esteemed honour, which proves the effectiveness of both sealants when it comes to reducing reduce asthma and allergy attacks in the home.
There’s no denying that BT1 has the science and accreditations behind it to support claims of it being the healthiest sealant for hospitals and clinics. But what key characteristics make that statement true? Below, you’ll find four reasons why BT1 is the healthiest sealant for hospitals and clinics.
1. Bacteria Can’t Survive on BT1’s Surface
Thanks to BT1’s TRIBRID® Technology, it has the unique ability to prevent and repel bacteria from growing on its surface. This new technology was developed by C-Tec and has proven to be the key ingredient in creating a truly healthy sealant fit for use within public health institutions.
Bacteria and microbes cannot survive on BT1’s surface. Not even airborne bacteria can rest and breed on BT1 thanks to this powerful TRIBRID® Technology. Therefore, you’re guaranteed a safe and healthy finish that effectively prevents the spread of harmful bacteria including MRSA and E. coli. BT1 has been tested under MOD IOS 22196:2011, which proved its ability to reduce bacteria by up to 99.99%.
2. Contains No Solvents or Isocyanates
Solvents and isocyanates are potentially hazardous substances that have no place in a sealant designed for use in healthcare establishments. Unfortunately, many traditional silicone sealants contain solvents and other harsh chemicals, which can cause health issues following exposure to such substances. Rather than controlling your exposure to such chemicals, it’s better to completely eradicate them from the establishment, which is why so many hospitals and clinics use BT1, which contains no solvents or isocyanates.
3. Contains Anti-Mould Properties
Mould growth is a common problem in hospitals and clinics, particularly around shower trays, bathrooms, near windows, and so on. One of BT1’s main features is its ability to reduce mould growth by preventing it from growing on its surface. BT1 has revolutionised anti-mould sealants and knocked its competitors out of the running. No other anti-mould sealant can reduce mould as effectively as BT1.
4. Very Low Emissions & ISEGA Food Certified
BT1 has been awarded EC1 for the lowest emissions. It has also been granted ISEGA’s food approval, which means it complies with the demands on food contact materials. In other words, it’s safe to use BT1 in applications where food is stored, packaged, or prepared. This means you can safely use BT1 in places like kitchens and food storage areas.
These are just a few of the benefits of BT1 that make it the safest and healthiest sealant for hospitals and clinics!
