Description

King MediGrade® is a super tough polymer building sheet with an advanced antimicrobial technology for protecting the product surface against stain and odor causing bacteria, algae and fungi. Unlike surface antimicrobials, advanced antimicrobial technology protects against bacterial degradation for the lifetime of the product. Healthcare facilities, medical equipment and case goods made with King MediGrade® will stay cleaner and fresher between cleanings. Studies have shown that surfaces with the antimicrobial technology can inhibit the amount of certain product-damaging bacteria by 99.9999%* compared to an untreated surface.
