People in New Hyde Park have become more cautious of touching surfaces that could carry bacteria that could potentially make them sick, with touchscreens in particular being an especially potent source of germ transmission.
According to this invention, a touch screen comprises an outer surface intended to be touched by fingers that contains an inorganic antimicrobial agent such as ceramic silver zeolite. This agent may be integrated directly into plastic resin used in making the screen or laminated onto its outer surface.
1. Reduces the risk of infection
Touchscreens offer an ideal environment for pathogens to thrive due to regular contamination by unclean hands and body fluids as well as their warm operating temperature (Bacteria thrive at 35@C). Healthcare environments frequently employ aggressive sanitization protocols to avoid costly liability claims for touchscreen infections.
Public touchscreens, however, are frequently utilized by multiple people close by; making it nearly impossible to maintain clean surfaces between users – imagine trying to wipe down an order entry kiosk after every customer during lunch rush at a fast-food restaurant!
Kastus’ antimicrobial solution features silver ions on an ultra-thin glass cover lens that are effective against over 650 types of bacteria, lasting the lifetime of any display and capable of killing them in contact. When bacteria come in contact with these silver-ions, their negative ion charges attract positively charged silver ions which penetrate cells disrupting metabolic function and ultimately killing them off.
2. Reduces the risk of cross-contamination
Hospital environments expose touchscreen devices to close contact from multiple people who frequently touch them, increasing the risk of bacteria transmission between individuals. Touchscreens also have been known to become physically damaged by impacts or vandalism which costs hospitals thousands to replace and repair.
TSItouch’s antimicrobial film helps stop disease transmission by coating touch screens with zeolite compounds that kill bacteria on contact. This coating can be easily applied to any type of touch screen and cleaned away using alcohol-based cleaners without damaging the display.
An antimicrobial agent can be added directly into the plastic resin layer that makes up the outer surface of a screen, or used as a laminate or coating that touches with each finger stroke. Zeolite materials should ideally be mixed with resin that does not alter either transparency or electrical properties of the screen, for maximum effectiveness.
3. Reduces the risk of damage
Touchscreen devices found on kiosks and coffee brewers provide the ideal breeding ground for pathogens to multiply, according to studies. Public touchscreens may even harbor bacteria like Staphylococcus which could potentially spread infection among their users and lead to serious illness if transmitted directly.
Healthcare environments employ stringent cleaning protocols to sanitise touchscreen surfaces, but the harsh chemicals may damage them further and allow bacteria to find refuge within microscopic crevices on them. Delegating responsibility of sanitizing touchscreens solely to individual users (i.e. with alcohol swabs) would not be sufficient when multiple people access screens simultaneously (think order entry kiosks at fast food restaurants).
An antimicrobial touch screen provides an effective solution to this problem by including an inorganic antimicrobial agent that remains active for extended periods. This agent may be integrated into the outer layer or coated on its surface and touched by fingers.
4. Reduces the risk of skin irritation
Consumers have become more conscious of microbial contamination since the start of COVID-19 pandemic. Touchscreens in public spaces such as order entry kiosks at fast-food restaurants or ticket machines have been particular targets, due to frequent cleaning and disinfection protocols necessary for them.
Numerous studies have demonstrated that touchscreen surfaces are frequently infested with bacteria and other microorganisms. Although no infectious coronavirus has yet been detected on touchscreens, some viruses (virus RNA) and fungi have been observed.

An antimicrobial surface is one of the safest ways to minimize skin irritation, and Miracletouch’s antimicrobial copper film is an ideal way to do just that. Touch screens with antimicrobial copper films installed can provide germ-free protection without diminishing clarity or durability; when touched by fingers, copper-ion penetrates bacterial cell membranes causing them to lose nutrients and water supply leading to their destruction; the antimicrobial effect lasts as long as your screen itself and this technology can also be applied resistive and capacitive touch screens as well as LCD modules and cover glass modules as well.
