By utilising SteriTouch antimicrobial additives, independent testing has proven that the X260 Medi-Vet is now 99.99% effective against MRSA and E.coli.

Another creation from the collaboration is the X263 Medi-Vet Repeller Antimicrobial, a single pack one application spray on system that makes concrete impermeable, increases longevity and permanently waterproofs concrete from any direction.

Thew new offerings have been tested, certified and used an on-field trial process.
