Kastus Technologies and Touch International Partner, Watch Advancements to Learn More

Touchscreens are an essential part of modern life. When there are four times as many germs found on a self-service touchscreen than on a toilet seat¹, it’s no surprise that many consumers are concerned about engaging with surfaces and being exposed to infectious germs such as MRSA, E. coli and C. diff.

Kastus® is on a mission to tackle the growing issue of antimicrobial resistance with its game-changing surface solution. A patented coating that’s applied during the glass manufacturing process, Kastus Glass is scientifically proven to eliminate up to 99.99 percent of harmful bacteria, delivering germ-free protection to touchscreens and personal devices, such as tablets and smartphones — for life.

In a recent consumer survey commissioned by Kastus², over 70 percent of respondents stated they were worried about using public touchscreens. Bank ATMs caused the most concern among respondents, with doctor’s surgery and hospital check-in screens a close second. Fast food chain order screens, supermarket self-service tills and airport check-in kiosks were also identified as a concern. Of those surveyed, over 80% also stated they would actively seek out a business or establishment that offered a touchscreen with an invisible germ-free coating. These are the consumer and business needs that Kastus and Touch International will address in their partnership, with a special focus on the healthcare industry.

“We are very excited to announce our partnership with Michael Woolstrum and his innovative team at Touch International. I am also delighted that we will be featured together via CNBC on the Advancements television series in Q4 2019,” said John Browne, founder and chief executive of Kastus, speaking of the new partnership. “We fully share Michael’s desire to change the medical field and revolutionize the touchscreen offer for consumers. Kastus are looking forward to going on this journey with such an innovative and forward-thinking organization.”

“Partnering with Kastus to integrate their coating on our products will further enhance our touch display manufacturing capabilities, enabling us to bring more value to our customers and open new windows as we continue to push into the medical touch display market,” said Michael Woolstrum, Touch International CEO, in regards to working with Kastus coating technology. “This will be a game changer for the medical industry, and our team is already identifying new opportunities to utilize the coating technology across all of the high-reliability vertical markets we serve.”
