SEKISUI KYDEX Launches Premium Antimicrobial Line: KYDEX ION Technology™

June 9, 2020

New KYDEX ION Technology™ is 99% effective at inhibiting the growth of stain and odor causing bacteria on KYDEX® Thermoplastics. KYDEX ION Technology™ interferes with bacteria DNA, which prevents stain and odor causing bacteria from multiplying on the treated thermoplastic sheet. 

As the world looks towards welcoming visitors, customers, and passengers back following the pandemic, building consumer confidence in our products is top of mind. High touch surfaces need to withstand harsh chemical disinfectants and cleaning agents, and inhibit bacteria which may interfere with such cleaning rather than fighting it after it has settled in. 

KYDEX ION Technology™ is an antimicrobial treatment incorporated into the sheet, which helps keep the treated surface cleaner between cleanings. Many KYDEX® Thermoplastics are engineered to withstand daily contact with harsh disinfectants and chemical reagents. Durable, chemical- and stain-resistant, KYDEX® Thermoplastics are ideal for high touch areas such as checkout stands, counter tops, point of sale, healthcare furniture, medical devices, kiosks, tray tables, and wall coverings.  

KYDEX ION Technology™ materials have been tested to ISO 22196 and JIS Z 2801 to quantitatively measure their effectiveness. To learn more about KYDEX ION Technology™ or to have a technical conversation, contact our appLab™ team at or 800.682.8758. 

*KYDEX® Thermoplastics incorporates an advanced EPA-registered antimicrobial for the protection and preservation of our polymeric and plastic materials. KYDEX® Thermoplastics are treated only to protect the polymeric and plastic materials and do not confer protection from bacteria to users of our products. Always clean the product thoroughly after use.
