Owing to fast-growing global demand for specially formulated coatings that provide antimicrobial, anti-fingerprint and easy-to-clean characteristics to enhance the performance, aesthetics and durability of metal products and surfaces, Horizon Business Group has announced the creation of Sureshield Coatings Company.
This spin-off company will allow consumers and manufacturers to easily identify with the Sureshield brand, which has been established to market the company's portfolio of more than 150 antimicrobial, anti-fingerprint and easy-to-clean coatings for metal.
With this spin-off, Sureshield Coatings Company is launching a comprehensive web site that provides a unique, tailored experience to different types of users, including manufacturers, building designers and facility managers, and consumers.
As a leading developer of coatings that inhibit the growth of odor and stain-causing bacteria, molds, mildews, and fungi on the coating, Sureshield Coatings Company (a member of Horizon Business Group) offers a comprehensive selection of powder, liquid and coil coating options that are designed to be easily integrated onto any consumer or commercial metal product.
“Many major manufacturers already recognize the value of upgrading their product offering to include easy-to-use coatings that resist unsightly fingerprints, make cleaning stainless steel and other metals easier and address user and industry concerns regarding microorganisms that cause odors and stains,” said Sureshield Coating Company's President Michael Jacobs. “We work closely with market leaders in many different industries to help them incorporate Sureshield coatings as a low-cost, high- benefits addition to their global product lines.”
Sureshield is available in clear, solid and transparent colors, which are designed to resist fingerprints for the life of the product, making it ideal for: major and small appliances, computer products, foodservice equipment, office products, office and healthcare furniture, medical products, HVAC and air handling equipment, commercial laundry equipment, plumbing fixtures, lab equipment, and doors and windows. In addition, Sureshield coatings can be pre- or post-applied to any type of metal to keep metal surfaces looking cleaner and easier to clean. This makes Sureshield ideal for use in residences, restaurants, hotels, bus or train stations, airports, stadiums, office buildings, laboratories, hospitals and other facilities.
