DuPont Removable Antimicrobial Coating (RAC)


DuPont has developed the Removable Antimicrobial Coating (RAC) technology to provide innovative ways to help the food processing industry prevent the spread of bacteria. Microbial contamination, especially of Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes, can be hard to fight, but RAC is ideal for use in preventing, controlling & eliminating the growth of microorganisms on surfaces. RAC is a water-based liquid formulation with film-forming characteristics and residual antimicrobial properties that can be completely removed with a water rinse.

Advantages include:
  • Effective against a wide range of bacteria and fungi, preventing the formation of biofilms over extended periods of time
  • RAC kills pathogens underneath and those coming in contact on top
  • Long-lasting antimicrobial treatment for coated surfaces and equipment
  • Can be easily applied by spraying, dipping or painting which is ideal for coating hard-to-reach surfaces
  • RAC allows easy removal of anything that settles on top when the coating is rinsed off
  • More efficient use of antimicrobials: reduced water usage, time savings and labour cost reduction
