Touch screens, due to their nature, can accumulate many bacteria and other microbial life-forms. 80% of infections come from what we touch, smartphones carry 10 times the number of bacteria of most toilet seats, and researches done in the United Kingdom found feces on every McDonald’s kiosk tested and ATMs are not different. So, it makes sense that we would want to achieve a way to reduce that infection risk and make something that has become a large part of today’s life safer for all users. That is what Kastus is achieving and what we, Promarc, aim to help through distribution.
The new Kastus technology is not only the best way to avoid germs and to keep screens clean, it is more than that:
It provides 24/7 Antimicrobial protection on coated surfaces for the lifetime of the product, blocking agents like E. coli, C. diff, and COVID-19.
This technology is activated by visible lights indoors and out, without needing to rely on UV light.
It provides an easy to clean surface that conserves water use and reduces chemical cleaning needs.
It has an eco-friendly, non-leaching coating.
It is an invisible coating that will not impact the aesthetics of any product.
The technology is not only for ATMs, but also for other touchscreens, like the ones that millions touch in fast-food kiosks and points of sales and it will provide a safer way for everyone to use touchscreens.
Promarc is honored to be a key player in the promotion and distribution of Kastus. With years of experience, contacts, influence across the banking and commercial automation industry Promarc is essential in ensuring that this new development is promoted throughout the banking industry and other industries that rely on touchscreens, such as the commercial automation industry.
