CrobialCoat inhibits bacteria growth on hard surfaces and protects metals from corrosion

Everbrite Coatings has partnered with Microban® International to develop their newest innovative dual-purpose coating product CrobialCoat. A hard surface like metal or hard plastic coated with CrobialCoat inhibits bacteria growth and protects metals from rust, corrosion and tarnish.

CrobialCoat™ is a durable, clear protective coating for most hard surfaces including all metals. The coating not only protects metals from the harmful effects of rust, salt damage, tarnish, corrosion and oxidation but CrobialCoat™ inhibits bacteria growth on the coated surface for the life of the coating…. which means many years.

CrobialCoat™ combines the tough protection and long lasting durability and scratch resistance of Everbrite’s ProtectaClear® coating with Microban® antimicrobial technologyOur Protectaclear coating is infused with Microban antimicrobial technology at the time of manufacturing.

This means that CrobialCoat™ not only protects metals against damage from corrosion, tarnish and rust but provides high-level protection against microbes and inhibits bacteria growth when the coating is applied to hard surfaces. Coated surfaces are 99% cleaner for the life of the coating. 

This means the protection lasts for years. It is only a simple matter of applying a recoat years down the track – straight over a pre-coated surface. No sanding or grinding required because the coating anneals to itself and becomes one – providing more and more years of protection.

CrobialCoat™ inhibits bacteria growth on hard surfaces and metals. It is for highly touched surfaces where cleanliness matters

CrobialCoat™ also provides long lasting durability and scratch resistance upon application. Specifically designed for protection of metals (even highly polished metals) ceramics, hard plastic and hardwoods. CrobialCoat™ is ideal for use in high touch environments such as:
  • Schools, Kindergartens, Playgrounds 
  • Hospitals, Doctors and Dentists Rooms
  • Shopping Malls 
  • Restaurant Kitchens and Dining Rooms 
  • Hotels, Casinos, Motels, Quarantine Centres
  • Public Toilets and Restrooms 
  • Private Homes
  • Commercial environments like Lifts, Escalators
  • Public Seating

Once applied to a surface, CrobialCoat™ helps prevent odours that can occur from odour causing bacteria.

Microban® antimicrobial protection is infused into the coating during manufacturing and remains effective for the life of the coating. Metal surfaces that are protected with CrobialCoat™ will mean that surfaces stay cleaner longer, show less fingerprints and are much easier to maintain with far less effort and time. This added level of protection helps inhibit the growth of mould, mildew and odor-causing microbes.  

This coating is a germ busting breakthrough that helps combat the growth of bacteria on all hard surfaces.

How much CrobialCoat do I need?

CrobialCoat inhibits bacterial growth and protects your metals from tarnish, rust and corrosion -

Coatings are sold in complete Kits. Different size kits are available for different size projects.  As a rule of thumb 100 mL of coating will provide a one (1) coat coverage to just over 2 square metres of smooth bare metal like brass, bronze, copper silver and stainless steel. Be sure to calculate coating requirement according to the recommended number of coats for the item you are coating.

As an example a surface area of two (2) square metres to be coated with two (2) coats will take about 200 mL of coating therefore you would select the Small kit which contains 250mL of coating.

NOTE: More kit sizes are coming soon for CrobialCoat. Currently only 120mL Kits are available.

Keep Kitchens Cleaner

Kitchens are these days known to be the heart of the home.  Unlike many years ago when the kitchen was ‘stuck out the back’ near the laundry and back porch, today people are spending more time at home with family in the kitchen area.   Your family and friends are not the only living things that hang out in the kitchen.  


Bacteria and microbes thrive on all kitchen surfaces making it a constant battle to deal to the germs and bad odours.  A recent study inspected 100 kitchens across Philadelphia and found listeria and E.coli in 15% of them and at least one organism that causes foodborne illness in almost 50% of them.   

The presence of E. coli is usually found near kitchen sinks.  Researchers found that 82% of the sinks they inspected usually failed a cleanliness test. 

CrobialCoat™ with Microban Antimicrobial Technology inhibits the growth of microbe populations on appliances, sinks, benchtops,handles and other high-touch surfaces, meaning it is easier than ever to keep your kitchen cleaner and smelling fresh.

High touched items like copper metal bench tops should be coated with CrobialCoat to inhibit bacterial growth

Keep Bathrooms Cleaner

Bathrooms can also be gross.   Of all the rooms at home, the bathroom is one of the most likely to be affected by microbial growth.  The heat and humidity from showering, bathing and shaving create a warm and moist environment which makes the majority of bathroom surfaces prone to microbes and the perfect candidate for CrobialCoat™ protection. 

Wipe-on protection for sinks, hardware, toilet seats, light switches, handles, rails and more.

Keep High Touch Areas Cleaner

At last a coating to inhibit bacteria growth on light switches, lift buttons, in fact every hard surface where people touch things. Invisible germs dwell and multiply everywhere. This coating is a game changer – its ability to knock back these invisible germs that make us all sick. This is a long lasting coating to inhibit bacteria on all hard surfaces including all metals…. and so easy to maintain years down the track.

Laboratory Studies - Peace of Mind

Lab studies have proven CrobialCoat™ to significantly reduce the growth of microbes and help surfaces stay 99% cleaner than unprotected surfaces.  This effectiveness will last the life of the coating, as Microban antimicrobial technology is built into the coating and will not wash off. 

​Unprotected surfaces can breed odor-causing bacteria, which can double in number every 20 minutes. This can cause the development of stains, unpleasant odors and bacteria which impacts the aesthetics, durability and cleanliness of a surface. In many circumstances, once microbes have begun to proliferate on a surface, constant cleaning is required to keep growth under control.  Constant cleaning may not be the most reasonable or economic solution. CrobialCoat™ is the solution for durable corrosion and microbial protection. 

Recognizing that the ability to clean constantly is unreasonable in most environments, the best weapon against microbial growth is antimicrobial coating with built-in protection.

24 hour time lapse: untreated surface vs. Microban® treated surface

On an untreated surface the bacteria reproduce rapidly. On a Microban® treated surface the bacteria struggle to survive and are reduced by up to 99.9%
