All SWISS KRONO Worktops have antibacterial properties.
Suchproperties BLACK WOOD Worktops mean that bacteria do not grow on their surfaces. Antibacterial activity tests have been performed in accordance with ISO 22196:2011 against two bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli), and their results confirm that the worktop surface inhibits the growth of microorganisms.
|for the production of furniture|
|as interior finishing elements, e.g. kitchen worktops, counters, tables, desks, shelves ( e.g. containers, helpers), backsplash|
All visible (external) worktop edges necessarily have to be protected in order to close their surface and protect them against dirt, abrasion and water penetration, as well as for aesthetic reasons (use of wax deepens the black colour of the base board). For this purpose, we recommend:
use of colourless coatings like: hard wax, varnish. Warning: We particularly recommend use of OSMO hard wax.
edgeband, e.g. ABS one, glued with the use of polyurethane glue.
The BLACK WOOD worktop should not be used for suspended sinks.
