Without water - there is no life !

The function of KEFA Coatings is as simple as ingenious

The basic function of BioRid is to eliminate the water. Without water, there is no life. The surface stays dry and therefore no mold can start growing. Also algae and bacteria have little chance to develop.

Micro pores - the secret of the successful function

BioRid's unique micro pore matrix is created when you apply the material. The coat thickness must be at least 600 g/m2 to allow the coating to work efficiently.

During the condensation period, the condensation water is stored inside the micro-pores and there is no liquid water on the surface, allowing spores to start the germinating process. When the surface temperature rises above the dewpoint temperature, the condensed water evaporates rapidly back into the atmosphere, and thus BioRid is practically always dry.

BioRid is built up of millions of micro-pores of sizes 0.1 - 100 microns. A micro-pore matrix of 1mm thick BioRid makes the relative surface 20 000 times larger than the two-dimensional surface. This enlargement speeds up the water evaporation 2 - 3 times in comparison to a flat surface.

BioRid stays clean

Due to the micro-pore matrix, BioRid is a good thermal insulator. The surface temperature is consequently warmer than the substrate. A warm and dry surface does not attract dust, dirt and other organic material and hence the second requirement for mould growth - nutrition - is reduced.

The BioRid System is environmentally friendly and works forever

The basic function of the BioRid coating is to prevent mould from starting to grow due to lack of moisture. There are no chemicals involved in this process in sharp contrast to traditional anti-mould paints whose function is to kill the mould by the use of fungicides, bactericides and other chemicals. These chemicals become used up and exhausted after only a few years and loose their killing capability.

The absorption/evaporation process of BioRid is purely physical and hence BioRid retains its combating properties forever.

The manufacturer follows the development on the raw-material market and will always use the most environmentally friendly ingredients that are available.

BioRid can therefore be used in as restricted areas as food production plants.
