Action Tesa, one of India’s largest manufacturers of MDF/HDHMR & Particle Boards in India, launches TESA Antiviro, an Antimicrobial Coating in PreLaminated Boards. TESA Antiviro pre-laminated boards are highly suitable in making of furniture items for any high public traffic areas such as hospitals, health &spa institutions, educational institutions, malls, airports and hotels.Tesa Antiviro products have been tested by Biotech Testing Services, Mumbai for antimicrobial activity against JIS Z 2801 test method and for measurement of antiviral activity against test standard ISO 21702:2019, result of which shows 99.99% Microbial kill. The entire range can be seen at and all authorized Action Tesa dealers across India.

The R&D team of Action TESA along with the technical expert from Europe, after rigorous tests and trials, developed TESA Antiviro pre-laminated surfaces which are antimicrobial and antivirus in nature. The TESA Antiviro pre-laminated surfaces aremade from Nanotechnology, in which nano-particles continuously release ions which is a self-defense mechanism for killing microbes like bacteria, viruses, fungus etc. Owing to the electrostatic attraction these nanoparticles physically ruptures the cell wall and cytoplasmic membrane of the microbes and viruses that come in contact with TESA Antiviro surfaces.

The nanoparticles are effective throughout the life of the product. Usage of this Nano technology is increasing in medical science and also an alternative to antibiotics. Nanoparticles based - coating is also being used for coating in medical equipment.

Mr. Ajay Aggarwal, Managing Director, Action TESA says, “In today’s scenario where mask, sanitization and social distancing is mandatory for minimizing the probability of infection from Covid-19, one cannot rule out the chances of coming in contact with the virus at offices and homes. Understanding the gravity of the situation it was very important to minimize the impact of virus on any touch surface.”

“In the light of the COVID-19 pandemic in the year 2020, a lot of organizations tried to develop safe products for common contact areas like furniture & wall paneling of office, hotels, hospitals etc. These are the places where a mass community touches common areas. Action Tesa came up with excellent solution which is safe & reliable.” Mr. Aggarwal further adds.
