The Elesa SAN range of antimicrobial handles and machine elements prevents the build-up of bacteria, mildew and fungi by offering a sanitized effect on the surface. They are particularly suited to hygiene areas where tests carried out on material samples have confirmed their persistent antimicrobial action even after numerous cleaning cycles at high temperatures with soap and solvents.
 
For example, the EBP.SAN bridge pull handle and the I.644 revolving handles are suitable for applications such as medical and hospital equipment, disability aids, machines for food processing and pharmaceutical industry, equipment for catering service and for general urban and public fittings where large numbers of contacts are made on a daily basis potentially passing on infections.
 
The great resistance of the Elesa antimicrobial additive to high temperatures allows these handles to reach normal sterilisation temperatures (130°C).
 
As part of the Elesa commitment to quality, samples of this material have undergone laboratory tests in compliance with JIS Z 2801. The microbes used to carry out these tests are the ones which are commonly considered to present the greatest resistance to antimicrobial products, they include:
 
Klebsiella pneumoniae ATCC 4352
Escherichia coli ATCC 8739
Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538P
Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 12055
