Our Ambition

Just like many tech start-ups are born in a garage, Inhibit Coatings had their light-bulb moment in a small lab in Wellington, New Zealand.

Our innovative technology, which uses smart chemistry to permanently bind antimicrobial silver to materials, was created by scientists Dr Tate and Prof. Johnston.

They aimed to to make the world a better place. To help others live their lives in a safer and more sustainable world, without the worry of microbes and contamination.

Thanks to our cutting-edge antimicrobial solutions, we believe that Inhibit Coatings have taken the first steps towards creating such a world. Not only are our solutions more effective and longer lasting, but also more sustainable, positively impacting both humans and the planet.

Our broad-spectrum silver antimicrobial agent kills over 650 different types of microorganisms including Human Coronavirus, Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp., Influenza A (H1N1), Listeria monocytogenes, and Campylobacter spp.

Unlike other systems that steadily release biocides, our antimicrobial agent is bound to the polymer resin. This eliminates many of the current drawbacks and limitations of existing technology including leaching.
