Newline Announces Launch of Antimicrobial Glass

The Newline RS+ Series will now feature lab-tested, certified antimicrobial infused glass

Allen, TX (April 28, 2021) – Newline Interactive has introduced a new touch screen coating that has proven to be effective against the most common germs, including E.coli and Staphylococcus, adding safeguards to classroom and office technology to mitigate the spread of diseases.

Touch technology has become a staple in everyday life, the office, and the classroom. That also means increased exposure to and the spread of unwanted germs and bacteria. With a keen focus on customer’s needs, Newline has introduced a new product feature to assist in the fight against everyday threats.

As the first in the industry to use organic and inorganic compounds to eliminate germs collected on touch surfaces, Newline continues to push the envelope in safe product development and innovation. Active elements include silver, copper, and titanium ions and a proprietary formula of organic compounds. The use of both organic and inorganic compounds ensures high levels of efficacy in the antimicrobial-infused glass. Embedded into the touch screen along with the anti-glare coating, the compounds are activated by light. This includes room lights, sunlight, the screen’s LED, IR, and any other light-producing object in the display’s vicinity. Essentially, activation is achievable in almost every working environment.

Newline’s antimicrobial glass has been tested and certified by TÜV Rheinland, the global leader in safety and quality testing. This guarantees that Newline-tested products are safe and meet certification guidelines. In this case, 99% effectiveness in the antimicrobial glass against germs.

“We have been working on this for a while now, and I’m happy to say that we’re pleased with the final product. Not only does the impressive RS+ touch experience remain unchanged, but the additional abrasion testing we conducted confirmed that this would be the best product on the market. Hands down we have the best product in the industry,” said Chris Bradford, President of Newline Interactive

Newline’s RS+ Series panels with the antimicrobial glass are already in stock and shipping from Newline warehouses. Customers are encouraged to still follow daily cleaning and sanitizing routines with approved cleaners. This will ensure that screen coatings are not compromised and personal protective measures against diseases and infections are still followed.
