Anti-Microbial Compliant Worktops

ISO 22196:2011 (Measurement of antibacterial activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces)

JIS Z 2801 (Test for Antimicrobial Activity of Plastics)

Antibacterial materials and products have been widely and rapidly accepted by general consumers as fulfilling a relatively new function, which is distinguishable from the more traditional function of material protection.

Antibacterial products created by incorporating an antibacterial agent (biocide) can suppress the growth of bacteria on the surfaces of products when conditions exist where growth can occur. They can keep surfaces clean and sanitary and can also have an advantage in minimizing the impact on the environment by minimizing diffusion of the agent. This technology is significant for the quality of life, not only in developed countries but also in developing countries.

Antibacterial products have been widely used in plastics, coating materials, ceramics, natural and artificial leather, stainless steel, rubber, etc. The products involved cover a variety of categories, such as electrical appliances, personal items, household goods, nursing-care articles, pet accessories and aircraft-interior fittings.

The scope of the first edition of ISO 22196 was limited to plastics surfaces. In this second edition, the scope has been extended to include surfaces made of other non-porous materials, thus making the second edition applicable to products of the kinds listed above. The test method, which is based on JIS Z 2801[11], has remained unchanged.
