The HRX System

The Tefcote HRX System is a water based, single pack bactericidal active coating. Its unique properties allow a microbiological safety net to be achieved in areas of potential risk. The system remains active during the foreseeable life of the coating.

The HRX process prevents the growth and spreading of any infections, as well as killing any bacteria, mould, fungi and algae that come in contact with the surface.

Micro-organisms Controlled by the HRX Process

Note: This list includes organisms specified in all the mildew resistance tests commonly used. These indicator organisms are generally considered more difficult to control than decay and odour-causing bacteria and fungi encountered under conditions of use. This list represents only a proportion of the micro-organisms that can be controlled by HRX.
