Since the global pandemic began in 2020, the spread of Covid has increased the demand for disinfection and sanitisation amongst a variety of industries and our clients.
BDK’s partnership with Porex demonstrates that we are equipped to keep up with fluctuating requirements across different sectors and showcases our capability to adapt and deliver complex and innovative solutions.
Over the years, we have gained the knowledge and expertise to handle and process a wide array of materials, including reflectivity material from Porex. We understand the importance of Porex’s Virtek solutions for UVC germicidal disinfection applications.
Porex & Virtek Solutions
As a global leader in developing custom-engineered porous polymer solutions, Porex has built an established reputation since its conception in 1961. Their advanced solutions can be applied in a wide variety of industries and, by collaborating with customers, they create bespoke products tailored to their requirements. Porex and BDK share this drive to deliver innovative solutions to their customers, so our partnership significantly enhances this capability.
BDK are proud to supply Porex products and offer the customisation of reflectivity material for UVC disinfection applications. Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (ultraviolet C or UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
Porex Virtek® PTFE membrane is used across multiple industries in a number of applications in order to keep dust, moisture and other pathogens out, whilst allowing for air and gasses to pass through. Some examples of UV application areas include:
- UV air disinfection
- Object disinfection
- POU water disinfection
- Commercial / Residential air disinfection
- Industrial water disinfection
- UV curing
- Medical phototherapy
Porex Virtek® reflective PTFE is the best-known material in the UV-reflectivity space and we are honoured to be able to deliver this to our customers. It is becoming the industry standard for high performance UV reflectivity and BDK are dedicated to providing the highest quality materials and the capabilities to convert to customer specifications.
With its ultra-high uniformity and energy distribution, uneven disinfection and hot and cold spots are reduced, ensuring it is the most reliable choice. Also, utilising highly reflective media can save time for disinfection and decrease the number of UV sources required, resulting in more efficient use of the UV energy.
BDK Partnership with Porex
By combining our precision conversion and adhesion experience with Porex’s revolutionary sintered PTFE, BDK can deliver innovation to improve airborne pathogen management. We specialise in customised Virtek solutions for almost any design or environment to help minimise system costs and maximise longevity.
Porex materials are available in a variety of formats which gives our customers more scope for customisation. Some variations include roll format in different thicknesses with or without an adhesive, as sheets, discs, or die-cut.
As an industry-leading expert in the adhesive converting field, you can rely on BDK for up-to-date market knowledge, high performing capabilities, and delivering quality custom solutions. We choose to partner with companies who share the same values, quality processes and experience, so both parties can enrich our solutions.
