Dexine Rubber Technologies can currently offer Contex, a range of Anti-Bacterial rubber polymers using the well known brand of Hygienilac.

What does Hygienical do?

Hygienilac kills superbugs. It is unique and devastatingly effective against these bacteria:

  • MRSA Staphylococcus aureus | Penicillium purpurogenum
  • C difficile Acinetobacter | Bacillus cereus
  • E coli Klebsiella pnuemoniae | Saccharmyces cerevisiae
  • Salmonella Aspergillus niger | Micro-organisms
  • Listeria Pseudomonas aeruginosa

It is also non-carcinogenic, non-mutagenic and non-skin-sensitising. It is even approved by the FDA and HSE for indirect or incidental contact with food. In other words, completely harmless to us, utterly deadly to superbugs.

How does Hygienilac work?

Hygienilac is available in numerous forms. It’s available as a wood lacquer, as a liquid for paints, as a masterbatch for plastics and foams and now rubber. Hush puppies even use it in their insoles to eradicate athlete’s foot and odour. In all these applications and many others, Hygienilac prevents the bacteria’s access to nutrients: 99.9% simply starve and die within 24 hours. But it doesn’t just work, because it has low water solubility and is impervious to UV light, it goes on working for years. Hygienilac is non-toxic and toysafe, tested and complying with BS EN 71.3. It has passed BS 6250 tests for severe usage and has been awarded a point 3 by the NHS Infection Control Rapid Review Panel, and has repeatedly been proved to be overwhelmingly effective by FDAS and Bodycote Lawlabs analysis.
