Plastic and metal enclosures and panels from Vero Technologies can be supplied doped with Biomaster (produced by Addmaster), a silver-based antimicrobial additive which provides a means of reducing bacteria by up to 99.99% for the active life of the product.

The silver ion material is added to the raw ABS before moulding in the case of plastic enclosures. As the additive becomes an integral part of the material, the efficacy of the protection does not diminish over time, giving protection to external coatings that will inevitably degrade through normal wear and tear, routine cleaning, etc. For front panels and extruded aluminium enclosures, where the antimicrobial material is added to the anodising process, trials are currently being conducted, although preliminary results show similar reductions in bacterial growth rates.
