Patient Scales Protected with Axalta’s Alesta® AM Antimicrobial Powder Coating A silver zinc zeolite antimicrobial technology that is known to inhibit the growth of microbes on powder-coated surfaces.
Recognizing that infection control and patient and caregiver safety are serious issues for healthcare facilities, Health o meter® Professional Scales developed five Antimicrobial scales featuring Axalta’s Alesta® AM Antimicrobial powder coating. The antimicrobial powder coating on the scale’s handrails and transport handle use silver-zinc zeolite antimicrobial technology known to inhibit microbes’ growth on powder-coated surfaces. The scale’s keypads feature Antimicrobial protection. Health o meter® Professional’s platform scales, wheelchair scales, and in-bed/stretcher scales are also protected with Antimicrobial keypads.
