Action Tesa, one of India’s largest manufacturers of MDF/HDHMR & Particle Boards in India, has recently launched TESA Antiviro, an Antimicrobial Coating in Pre-Laminated Boards. TESA Antiviro pre-laminated boards are highly suitable in making furniture items for any high public traffic areas such as hospitals, health & spa institutions, educational institutions, malls, airports and hotels.

According to the company, Tesa Antiviro products have been tested by Biotech Testing Services, Mumbai for antimicrobial activity against JIS Z 2801 test method and for measurement of antiviral activity against test standard ISO 21702:2019, the result of which shows 99.99% Microbial kill.

The R&D team of Action TESA along with the technical expert from Europe, after rigorous tests and trials, developed TESA Antiviro pre-laminated surfaces which are antimicrobial and antivirus in nature. The TESA Antiviro pre-laminated surfaces are made from Nanotechnology, in which nano-particles continuously release ions which is a self-defense mechanism for killing microbes like bacteria, viruses, fungus etc. Owing to the electrostatic attraction these nanoparticles physically rupture the cell wall and cytoplasmic membrane of the microbes and viruses that come in contact with TESA Antiviro surfaces.

Ajay Aggarwal, Managing Director, Action TESA says, “In today’s scenario where mask, sanitization and social distancing is mandatory for minimizing the probability of infection from Covid-19, one cannot rule out the chances of coming in contact with the virus at offices and homes. Understanding the gravity of the situation it was very important to minimise the impact of the virus on any touch surface.”
