PSS Joins Forces with the CDC

10.14.19

New York, NY, October 11, 2019—

Pison Stream Solutions (PSS) just received confirmation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on a committed global effort to fight antimicrobial resistance.

“We are thrilled to be pledging a commitment to the CDC One Health by showing how our (PSS) powder coatings products can be a true game changer in fighting the spread of resistant germs… starting with surfaces touched daily.”—Joseph James, CEO PSS

The U.S. government’s Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Challenge is an effort for governments, private companies, and non-governmental organizations worldwide to make formal commitments that further the progress against antimicrobial resistance. The Challenge encourages One Health—an approach recognizing that “the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment”—emphasizing need for change.

PSS is proud to be a member of this initiative and has a direct line of R&D committed to creating antimicrobial powder coating technologies that have achieved superior stamina compared to traditional bacteria/germ-eliminators. PSS health line coating formulations target the source with a different mind-set toward antimicrobial elimination, which yields estimated 99.99999% clean coatings surfaces. (Average antimicrobial coatings can claim only 99.9% clean.) —These tenths of decimal powers may seem small, except when you’re looking at bacteria growth. The strength of bacteria to multiply and migrate over a surface is exponential. An extra 7X power-strength can mean a different health-life for society.
