With our technologies and antimicrobial strategies, we enhance materials into outstanding products and, thus improve the quality of life of people and animals alike. In particular, we focus on products from the medical technology sector such as the coating implants and wound dressings. In addition, our technologies are also used to incorporate antimicrobial properties into cosmetics and industrial and consumer products, such as paints, coatings and plastics, thus, increasing the value proposition of these products in a unique manner. YOU ARE PROTECTED.
MicroSilver BG™ is highly pure elemental microporous silver additive. It is antimicrobial and can be incorporated into different materials and formulations. MicroSilver BG™ is not cytotoxic and therefore safe and versatile to use. It is used in skincare, oral care, wound care and medical implants.
- Patented Bio-Gate technology
MicroSilver BG™ is a high-quality product, which is “Made in Germany” under medical device manufacturing standards (ISO 13485 and ISO 9001). The purely physical production process was developed in conjunction with the Fraunhofer company. MicroSilver BG™ consists of highly pure elemental metallic silver particles that are extremely porous and micro-sized.
Its unique high surface area and its spongy structure facilitate the long-lasting antimicrobial effect of MicroSilver BG™ products.
