September 1, 2006


The EPA approved AgION Technologies' Silver Antimicrobial Type AK for food and water contact. The 5% reservoir of silver found in Type AK in combination with a permissible loading of 5% is the strongest concentration of silver available on the US market for use in food and water contact applications, says the company. The formulation provides antimicrobial performance under the most challenging conditions, including high water flow, abusive wear and caustic cleaning environments.
