Steel with coatings containing AgION(TM), a silver ioin-based compound that reportedly suppresses the growth of bacteria, mold, and other mictrobes, will be used in producing Carrier Corporation's top air handling unit line.
The announcement was made at a press conference associated with the 2003 International Air-Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration Expo, held in Chicago, IL, U.S.
Carrier's 39M Aiero(TM) air handling units and Racan-Carrier custom air handling systems will be available with AK Coating's AgION antimicrobial-coated steel as an integral material for their pre-painted steel inner liners. Production of the new antimicrobial-coated Racan-Carrier units will begin immediately. The first antimicrobial-coated 39M Aero units will be produced in March 2003.
