Antimicrobial switches from Arcolectric

Arcolectric, represented by Ermec, specialist in the manufacture of switches, pilots and fuse holders for all types of applications, has developed, together with BioCote Ltd, a new version of switches with anti-germ protection. 

This is a new technology based on silver ions which, when applied to the switch, inhibits the growth of micro-organisms on its surface by up to 99.9%, thus creating a safe and hygienic environment.

The protection is practically total against microbes, bacteria, mould, viruses,...

The BioCote technology does not in any way affect the aesthetic, electrical or mechanical characteristics of the switch/pushbutton itself. All products are regularly tested and validated according to the ISO 22196:2007 standard by an independent quality control laboratory.

This type of switch/pushbutton can be very interesting for applications in the pharmaceutical industry, laboratory equipment, electro-medicine and any equipment where environmental hygiene is an important factor.


Arcolectric is already applying this new technology in five of its switch ranges:
