Appliance maker Electrolux, is equipping all its European freestanding fridges under the all its brands, including Electrolux and AEG, with a new Anti-Bacterial Coating (ABC). The coating is now produced and used as standard in all factories across Europe.

According to Electrolux, this anti-Bacterial Coating provides a complete and durable solution to consumer’s concerns about hygiene and food safety in their home. It is comprised of silver ions that are encapsulated in a glass ceramic compound that is then affixed to the fridge’s internal surfaces. Ions are released gradually, offering active, protection from microorganisms. No bacterial growth can take place near the treated surfaces, the manufacturer said.

The coating is also said to be long lasting and prevents discoloration of the inner lining of the fridge, such as yellowing due to due to light rays. The ABC technology consists of a natural active ingredient, silver. It has a positive impact on bad odors caused by bacteria and has no effect on food products contained in the fridge in terms of content or natural taste and smell, according to Electrolux.
