AirStar’s main compressor tank is internally coated with antimicrobial material, inhibiting the growth and transmission of harmful bacteria.

The patented, silver-based powder coating uses environmentally sustainable silver ions that work 24/7 to protect against bacterial cell functions, by disrupting and prohibiting their growth and reproduction.

Air Techniques said that it utilises the latest technology to create a uniform, total surface covering, ultra-thin internal lining, preserving the health of patients and protecting instruments and handheld equipment from oxidation.

Air Techniques product manager Jay Ramachandran said that with an internally-coated antimicrobial tank, AirStar delivers consistently safe, reliable and dry air assuring peace of mind for dentists and patients.
