Air Techniques adds antimicrobial lining to compressors

Air Techniques has added a patented antimicrobial coating to its line of AirStar dental compressors to inhibit the growth and transmission of harmful bacteria, the company announced.

AirStar's main compressor tank is now internally coated with a silver-based powder coating that contains environmentally sustainable silver ions. These ions work continuously to protect against bacterial cell functions by disrupting and prohibiting their growth and reproduction, according to the company.

Air Techniques utilizes the latest manufacturing technology to create a uniform, total surface-covering, ultrathin internal lining to protect instruments and handheld equipment from oxidation, the company added.
