Solvay is proud to introduce ActizoneTM, a line of ready-to-use products and ingredients that provides rapid germ-kill to protect consumers from harmful bacteria and viruses, including the coronavirus. ActizoneTM technology also provides 24-hour surface protection to continuously kill 99.9% of bacteria on a range of surfaces. 

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, consumers and businesses alike have been searching for ways to uphold health standards and feel protected in an uncertain world. “Our ActizoneTM technology continues working long after surfaces have been cleaned, so businesses and consumers can enjoy peace of mind and feel confident knowing they are protected from bacteria for a full 24 hours,” said Michael Radossich, President of Solvay’s Novecare Global Business Unit.

In response to consumers' collective desire for a safer future across the globe and to businesses' efforts to overcome the effects of COVID-19, Solvay launches ActizoneTM, a combination of a proprietary long-lasting polymer, a state-of-the-art cleaning system, and industry-standard antimicrobial actives. 

“I’m proud of our teams, their ingenuity and the collaborative spirit they’ve shown in delivering our customers such a breakthrough innovation,” continued Radossich. "With ActizoneTM, our goal is to help our customers navigate through this unprecedented period, ensuring the safety of our communities' and supporting the responsible restart of the global economy."

ActizoneTM technology traps antimicrobial actives to form a protective film on surfaces. The actives initially kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses and go on to deliver 24-hour antibacterial protection and peace of mind to consumers while ensuring excellent shine and a residue-free finish.

Solvay's ActizoneTM technology is reliable across multiple surfaces, including polycarbonate, glass, laminates, and metal, so users can feel confident in ActizoneTM disinfection from the office to the airport and back home. Additionally, ActizoneTM products eliminate the need for continual antibacterial cleanings throughout the day, so consumers and businesses can devote more time to contributing to a better future.
