No. The protectant does not affect the beauty and drama of the decorative laminate pattern.
Wilsonart’s Antimicrobial Protection does not deteriorate (wash away or wear off) over time. Silver ions are added during the manufacture of the laminate surface.
The antimicrobial protection is built into the resin/overlay like AEON™ technology. It is not a coating. It will not wash away. The antimicrobial protection added to Wilsonart® HD® inhibits the growth of stain and odor causing mold and mildew on the surface. Essentially, it keeps the surface looking - and smelling - better, longer.
Wilsonart antimicrobial laminate utilizes silver ions (Ag+) encapsulated in glass beads. The siliver ion technology does not migrate or deteriorate over time. The antimicrobial action of silver is a fundamental material property with a long history of efficacy in the health and food service industries. Silver ion technology has demonstrated broad spectrum efficacy to control/eliminate growth of microbes in a variety of applications. The antimicbrobial activity of silver ion technology is believed to result from the ions' ability to interfere with process critical to cell function that eventually cause cell death. Silver ion is used in a variety of products today includingthe glass in phones and tablets; as well as, in performance clothing. Other Wilsonart business units have successfully used silver ion in HPL for many years. Wilsonart's silver ion chemistry is not the same as "nano silver."
Wilsonart’s enhanced antimicrobial protection is built into the laminate to protect the surface against damaging microbes. Antimicrobial agents protect the surface from the growth of mold and mildew that cause stains and odors when used for countertops and work surfaces.
At this time, the new antimicrobial protection is only available on Wilsonart® HD® Laminate.
Yes, all Wilsonart® HD® patterns includes antimicrobial protection, as well as Enhanced Scratch & Scuff Resistant AEON™ Technology, at no additional cost.
