BT1: Introducing ground-breaking sealant tech to the healthcare sector

Words provided by CT1, editorially reviewed by National Health Executive

Innovation often comes in the most unexpected places and in healthcare, we’ve seen that in the introduction of CT1’s latest ground-breaking sealant technology.

BT1 was launched into the market in late 2019, creating huge waves of attention within the industry. The sealant, which has over 25 accreditations, is also the healthiest choice of sealant to use. At a time when we are at heightened risk, learning new methods and preventions, we are now looking at how can we prevent future risk of more disease and bacteria.

Hybrid formulations for use in bathrooms and kitchens and general external use, claimed that they fought off bacteria and fungus. Whether you are at work or at home, we have all witnessed unsightly and unhealthy-looking shower trays, around windows and kitchen worktops! This is because the old hybrid technology over time would undoubtedly grow bacteria and fungus. The bathroom and kitchen areas can be the most contaminated areas. Bacteria and fungus can grow and spread with other nasties, and it looks very unhygienic.

BT1 using TRIBRID® Technology, the latest technology in the world of sealants and adhesives, has also grabbed the attention of the healthcare industry. This unique TRIBRID® Technology is scientifically created to fight bacteria and fungus. Tested under MOD IOS 22196:2011, BT1 has been proven to reduce bacteria by up to 99.99%, as these images prove. When testing this unique formulation, we found that it actually creates a barrier around itself, protecting itself from foreign bodies and maintaining its clinical white colour, leaving the cleanliest environment possible.

BUT that was not all. BT1 was at first created purely for the bathroom area eliminating fungal, pesticides and bacteria growth, whilst remaining flexible so no cracks or leaks would ensue. Tests discovered something else that has blown the market away. After 4 years developing BT1 based on the formula of CT1 to make the two family products work together, the tests showed something that is now so paramount and timely.

After vigorous testing, BT1 showed that the actual real scientific breakthrough was that it reduces the risk of MRSA, E. coli and Campylobacter. Hospitals and clinics are now widely using this not only for repair, but for installing new kitchens, labs and bathrooms.

BT1 has a guarantee of colour retention for up to 25 years. It is scientifically formulated in a manner in which bacteria/microbes cannot survive, making it easier to maintain a more hygienic surface free from solvents and isocyanates. This makes it the ideal sanitaryware product and a product for all public health institutions and clinics.

This has changed the way in which clinics and hospitals will now protect their surface areas and indeed for the construction of new builds!

BT1 was developed by the creators of CT1 , the number one sealant and adhesive, which has been used for years within the health industry, aged cared industry, clinics, schools, universities and a broad range of industries
 

Hospitals such as Solihull Hospital in Birmingham and Good Hope Hospital in Sutton among a few other institutions are now using BT1 for facility repair and maintenance work for creating a healthier environment. Many factories in food processing and handling are also now using this ground-breaking product.

Hospitals need the highest standard of cleanliness and yet, want each department to be more sustainable. Of course, when hospitals are faced with a choice that puts hygiene up against sustainability, hygiene always wins. Hospitals now more than ever are demanding to have the highest level of hygiene as well as wanting to be greener.

Increases in greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) are causing serious environmental events and public health consequences, which is detailed in reports submitted by the Sustainable Development Unit and WHO.

CT1, which is the UK’s Number 1 Sealant and Adhesive is the healthiest choice for the home and healthcare facility. Boasting over 25 accreditations, this makes CT1 the healthiest choice for your home. BT1 which is now a higher spec for hospitals also holds the same accreditations.

It has been awarded EC1 for lowest emissions, A+ Green which is awarded for lowest indoor emissions green-rated and Green ISO standard. The most unique accreditation and highly accredited, is The Norwegian Asthma and Allergy Association. The NAAF logo is highly sought after and one of the hardest accreditations to receive. The association test and award products based on their ability to reduce asthma and allergy attacks in the home. CT1 and BT1 have been awarded this. The only sealant and adhesive globally to achieve this. A label recognised globally as the highest in its authority for advising and testing products that reduce asthma and allergy in the home.

BT1 with unique TRIBRID® formula has no solvents and is also the most user-friendly sealant and adhesive to use with no odour. BT1 also has an ISEGA food certificate.
