King Plastic Introduces King MediGrade to Healthcare Design


King Plastic Corporation, a leading manufacturer of polymer sheets, slabs and massive shapes, introduces King MediGrade™, the antimicrobial polymer building sheet for healthcare applications.  King MediGrade™ combines designer colors, durability, and antimicrobial technology into one polymer sheet to bring architects and designers to the next level in healthcare design.

King MediGrade™ is a super tough polymer building sheet with an exclusive antimicrobial additive from Biosafe®, the latest technology for protecting the product surface against stain and odor causing bacteria, algae and fungi. Studies have shown that surfaces with this additive can reduce the amount of certain product-damaging bacteria by 99 percent.*

“The antimicrobial additive is bonded at the molecular level at the very beginning of our proprietary K-Stran™ production process, keeping it from ever leaching out of the product,” says Michael Fabbri, national sales manager. “This permanently protects the polymer sheet, which means the antimicrobial agent retains its effectiveness throughout the life of the product. When customers fabricate and install our products, the fresh surfaces they create are fully antimicrobial.  If heavy abrasion occurs during end use, the antimicrobial additive will never lose its efficacy, unlike antimicrobial surface coatings.”

King MediGrade™ is a perfect material for cabinetry, case goods, clean rooms, dental facilities, hospitals, locker rooms, medical facilities, laboratories, nursing homes, nurses’ stations, rest rooms, medical computer carts, and veterinary facilities. 

*For bacteriostatic, fungistatic, & algistatic properties. This product is exempt from registration under 40 CFR 152.25(a). King MediGrade™ effectiveness verified by ISO and ASTM standards. This product does not protect users or others from disease-causing bacteria. Always clean this product thoroughly after use.
