Whether your staff are on a regular, staggered or hybrid schedule, these kits can help ensure their workstations stay clean at all times — including employees working remotely, off-campus or in the field.

The kits include a variety of products that employ Nanotouch’s self-cleaning surfaces that work 24/7 to oxidize all organic contaminants using nanotechnology and the power of light. Each personal workstation kit includes a large portable mat, mouse pad, 9×12 touchscreen film, tissue box cover, tabs for a cell phone or tablet to separate from surfaces, and another self-cleaning surface that users can easily cut for custom applications like laptops or water bottles.

Dennis Hackemeyer, co-founder of Nanotouch Materials, remarked:

Cleanliness is top of mind for both employers and employees, whether they are back in the office entirely, using a hybrid approach, flex spaces or shared spaces or preparing to reopen. Think about it: Cleanliness starts with the places we touch the most — our own desks, phones and computers. This kit is essential for keeping employee workstations clean at all times, which in turn, helps to create a more hygienic environment in the whole facility.

Blog: The Deeper Science Behind Our Self-Cleaning Surfaces

If you are into the nitty gritty of how things work and would like a deeper dive into the science behind Nanotouch self-cleaning surfaces, the company’s newest blog post breaks down the photocatalytic process and describes how it works on the self-cleaning mats and skins.

As The Deeper Science Behind Our Self-Cleaning Surfaces explains:

The short answer is that our surfaces use nanocrystal technology to create a powerful oxidation reaction when exposed to any visible light.

A longer answer is that we bond microscopic mineral nanocrystals across our touchable surfaces, using the latest in material science. When natural or artificial light hits those mineral nanocrystals, the nanocrystals actively self-clean through a natural photocatalytic oxidation process.

The full answer is longer still and includes a lot of science. Here, we break it down.
