Diageo gives Bioni glaring letter of referral

Standard

20TH July 2011

LETTER OF REFERRAL – BIONI

Over the past three years Diageo Global Supply has used Bioni coatings in our Brewing and Manufacturing facilities throughout the UK and Ireland.

We have chosen Bioni as our preferred supplier for the following reasons;

  • Their technical expertise and support surpasses any of the other coating suppliers we have worked with. What particularly impresses us is the effort they have taken to understand the environmental conditions under which their products need to perform, their technical advice and guidance on preparation of surfaces and application of product to ensure optimum performance and the provision of products to meet site specific requirements.
  • All the products used to date have met the performance criteria claimed by Bioni. One of the main reasons we chose Bioni coatings was its hygienic attributes. As part of the Diageo acceptance trials, in-house microbiological testing was carried out on comparable areas coated with Bioni product and other hygienic coatings. Results from the areas coated with Bioni product demonstrated a significant reduction in both TVCs and Mold Spores with Bioni outperforming all others.
  • Additional advantages from the use of Bioni coatings have included;

* A reduction in mold spores in the atmosphere resulting in cleaner air

* A reduction in effluent COD loading.

  • The longevity of Bioni coatings has resulted in a good return on our initial investment and has proven to be more cost effective then other hygienic coatings we have used in the past.

On this basis we have no hesitation in recommending Bioni and its products to other Companies within the Food & Drinks Industry who are looking for Hygienic, cost effective wall coatings for their operations.

Bioni, a food processors dream come true?

Standard

Let’s face the facts! The food & beverage processing industry deals with threats of bacteria contamination and mold every day.  Most of these facilities are taking every measure possible to prevent the costly contamination.  The problem is these facilities are perfect environments for microbes to survive and thrive due to high moisture and all the nutrients that bacteria and mold needs to grow.

There has never been a true solution that works for walls, ceilings, and doors other than costly cycles of cleaning and constant refurbishing of the substrates.

To put it simple, Bioni can drastically help eliminate and prevent these problems and help save money.

How does Bioni save money?

From the start Bioni’s goal was to specifically design a coating for the exact environments in the food and beverage processing industry and help solve an industry pain.

As a coatings industry first, Bioni Systems offer a permanent protection on the coating film against deadly bacteria (e.g. Listeria, E. Coli, MRSA) as well as harmful mold and mildew for the entire life of the coating.*  Due to Bioni’s superior durability and the ability to apply the system over existing mold and rustyes you can apply Bioni System over mold and rust“, having Zero VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) and no odor, Bioni System reduces downtime through less preparation, shorter application time, and the ability to apply in occupied areas. Bioni also helps significantly reduces costly cleaning cycles, is permanently moisture regulating and provides an opportunity to reduce insurance costs as well as helps prevent expensive fines levied by government agencies.  Bioni has the highest Class A non-flammability (ASTM E84), 0 flame spread, 5 smoke development and improves factory appearance while sustaining look and performance without having to rebuild or coverup (rebuilding/renovation does not prevent the problem from happening again).  All of this helps one very important thing as well, production time.

Bioni coatings have a US patent (US #7736423).

*Bioni System Food provides anti-microbial properties to prevent the growth of microbes on the paint film only. The anti-microbial properties do not protect food, beverages, users or others against bacteria, germs or mold spores and do not substitute hygiene measurements and practices.

Seattle Home with Bioni Perform (Before and After)

A picture is worth a 1,000 words…

The below pictures are before and after of a home located in Seattle that had obvious mold, mildew, and weathering problems. Bioni Perform also provides anti-aging so the substrate (e.g. wood, concrete, stucco etc.) lasts a very long time without suffering from the negative effects of the environment.  Be sure to see Bioni Roof which provides the same protection for numerous substrates.  Both products are Zero VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) and show the ability to save up to 38.1% on bill to bill energy savings.

Food Processing Problems and Solution

Standard

WHY BIONI?

Bioni can offer a long-term solution to the problems you see in the video below.  These are typical problems in the Food & Beverage Industry.  Companies now have a solution with Bioni.

Solution

Bioni System Food can eliminate the problems seen in the video and save Food & Beverage processing companies hundreds of thousands of dollars and numerous headaches.  Mold, bacteria, and other microbial threats cannot inhibit the coating film FOR THE LIFE OF THE COATING.  Bioni is extremely durable, which allows for pressure washing and the use of typical cleaners used in F&B processing without the need to worry about Bioni losing it’s functions.

Bioni also has the highest Class A (Per ASTM E84) Non-Flammability (0 flame spread, 5 smoke development)

With a constant eye on the environment, all Systems and Products do not just meet the minimum requirement of “Green” we’re Zero VOC (Volitile Organic Compounds).

The below picture is 6 months after the application of System Food on the ceiling and walls.  The previous application of another coating, which is commonly used in F & B processing experienced problems after just 4 months!  These problems (Peeling, Flaking, Mold & Bacteria) start because these coatings are not designed to withstand the typical environment within F & B processing facilities.  This has always been the problem and the reason why Bioni felt the need to design something far different and innovative.  With the advanced manufacturing process of Nanotechnology and the help of one of the largest (more than 10,000 scientists) and most prestigious scientific institutes in the world The Fruanhofer Institute, Bioni has accomplish the goal in manufacturing the most advanced coating on the planet with benefits and functions never before possible.  Bioni is patented internationally (Patent # US 7736423)

You can’t change the processing environment but you can change the surface with Bioni.

As mentioned in a our previous post (here), Bioni was just tested against Listeria, E. Coli, & Pseudomonas aeruginosa, these top the list of some of the most serious bacteria’s F & B facilities face.

After just 4 days no sign of the bacteria was found inhibiting the coating film.  Bioni also has a log-5 (99.999%) reduction of MRSA (Staphylococcus aureus) & VRE (Enterococcus faecalis) on the coating film*.

Efficacy of Bioni against E. Coli, Listeria…

Standard

Breaking NEWS!

DEADLY BACTERIA

A recent test was conducted regarding the efficacy of Bioni against the listed bacteria:

Escherichia coli (E. Coli)
Listeria monocytogenes
Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa)

The test report shows none of the bacteria listed above were detectable after 4 days.*

Bioni already has a proven 5-log (99.999%) reduction of MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and VRE (Enterococcus faecium)*

Bioni never loses it’s effect.  Bioni works for the life of the coating.

Mold within a US Dairy Facility

The Difference of Bioni

The picture below was recently taken inside a US dairy facility.  The before picture was taken 4 months after the application of a coating that is traditionally used in food processing facilities.  As you can see there is heavy mold development. Mold started to appear after 2 months.

The after picture was taken 6 months after the application of Bioni System Food. There is NO mold inhibiting the paint film.

Don’t blame the facilities because they never had a solution until now!  These facilities actually spend enormous amounts of money to keep their facilities clean.

Bioni coatings can help significantly reduce the costs associated with the cleaning, resurfacing, downtime to do such work, and more importantly the fines that can be brought down by government agencies.

Bioni System Food also has a proven 5-log (99.999%) reduction of bacteria on the paint film.*  This is also a first for industrial coatings.
