Thanks to GBneuhaus technology wallboxes made by ABL, which are used to charge electric vehicles, are protected against damages caused by mechanical influences and sunlight in the long term.

ABL trusts on GBprotect plastics - our UV-protection- and anti-scratch-coating - for a long time. The company from Lauf an der Pegnitz produces wallboxes and charging stations for private, semi-public and public use. ABL eMobility-products follow up on the technological tradition of the company. Founder Albert Büttner invented the SCHUKO-plug in 1925 which is todays most common standard for electric plug devices worldwide. With smart eMobility-solutions ABL continues this successful story and defines new standards by raising user-friendly charging infrastructure. The 3D front of the wallbox is made of translucent polycarbonate by injection molding. In opposite to 2D blanks, which are coated ex works, molded parts are unprotected and prone to scratches.

Thus ABL was searching for a individual coating solution matched to the gloss front of the wallbox which guarantees protection against scratches in the long term. Our UV-protection- and anti-scratch-coating GBprotect plastics offers optimal protection for the noble looking surface of ABL wallboxes. Coating polycarbonate is a simple task for us even if the wallbox has high optical requirements. Thanks to our powerful R&D department we quickly found an individual solution which is matched perfectly with the wallbox and guarantees an effective protection againgst damages caused by mechanical influences or sunlight while optical and haptic properties are retained.

Peter Müller, head of R&D housing department at ABL rates the cooperation very positively: „ABL fulfills highest quality standards with its products. That also includes a protection of high gloss surfaces at charging stations with regard on scratch- and media-resistance. GBneuhaus nano coating technology offers an optimal protection in this case."

 

In future, GBneuhaus GmbH will ensure hygienic safety on electronic locks. Such locks which i.a. used in office furniture and medicine cabinets are manufactured by BeCode. Locker systems and parcel systems are also part of the application area. BeCode was one of the first manufacturers to consistently rely on retrofittable and intelligent systems that automate the management of even large locking systems and thus make it considerably easier.

Since BeCode products are used in everyday office life as well as in public areas, the idea arose early on to make the products safer in the hospital environment with an antibacterial coating. The current COVID-19 pandemic has led to urgent efforts to add an antiviral effect to the coating. For this purpose, BeCode was looking for a suitable partner who is a pioneer in this field and is known as a quality leader on the market. This partner could be found with GBneuhaus.

The antimicrobial coating SANPURE® protects the surfaces of BeCode products long-term and permanently against viruses, bacteria and other dangerous pathogens. SANPURE® could be applied to the miniPAD combination lock quite easily, while the AIR + locks presented us with a little challenge. The coating of the chrome-plated parts built into it initially turned out to be difficult. Thanks to many years of experience in research and development, an individual solution could also be found here, which now guarantees permanent and long-term hygienic safety on BeCode locks.

Matthias Blunck, Director at BeCode Locks Ltd., is enthusiastic about the new cooperation: “From the inquiry to the implementation, everything went very well. This is how I imagine a professional collaboration!"

 

Our nanocoating to protect surfaces against viruses, bacteria and other dangerous pathogens – SANPURE® - was tested in handling on food. In the test report of TÜV Rheinland from September 15, 2020 the high-performance coating is certified that it meets the requirements of §31 LFGB. A stainless steel plate coated with SANPURE® was tested. This versatile solution in the fight for more hygiene can now also be used when handling food without hesitation .

Especially for potential customers it is a reason to be delighted because new approaches can finally be found in the handling of food. The advantages of SANPURE® can also be used by the food industry in the future: within a short time it kills viruses, bacteria and other dangerous pathogens with the help of the active ingredient nanosilver, thereby significantly improving the hygienic situation. Numerous studies have already proven this. In recent studies it has been shown that SANPURE® reduces the viral load by over 90 percent within just one hour. After 8 hours, over 99.99 percent of the viruses on the tested substrate have been killed. In the case of bacteria, this value is reached after 12 hours. Thus, the coating is a real guarantee for more hygiene and also extremely easy to use: Once applied, SANPURE® has a permanent and lifelong antimicrobial effect.

Especially in times of the pandemic, a big step has been taken with the latest approval. The hygienic demands of people have increased significantly in the past few months. With the help of SANPURE®, GBneuhaus customers can meet these demands. The decision for this solution shouldn't be too difficult for interested parties, after all, SANPURE® brings neither visual nor haptic changes to the substrate but only: an unbeatable advantage thanks to more hygiene.
