Test Result of Tennâge for Germ Resistance
Here is the test result of Tennâge for germ resistance. This test was conducted by Sinanen Zeomic Co., Ltd.
Test Method: Evaluated by Test Method of The Society of International sustaining growth for Antimicrobial Articles (SIAA).
Put 0.4ml bacterial suspension, which was arranged at 1/500 regular culture medium, onto each test items.
Then, put a sterilized PE film on those items and kept them at 36℃ for 24 hours.
After that, cleaned the surface of each items in the 10ml of a sterilized SCDLP liquid medium.
We measured the total viable bacterial count in the liquid, using agar medium for measuring the number of bacteria by pour plate method.
We also did the bacterial suspension only test for a comparison.
Staphylococcus aureus： IFO12732
Escherichia coli： IFO3972

Test Result of Tennâge for Abrasion Resistance
Here is the test result of Tennâge for abrasion resistance. This test was conducted by Nara Forest Research Institute. This test result compared the abrasion resistance of Tennâge and the most common wood grain printed vinyl film.
2 June, 2006
|Most common wood grain printed vinyl film||Tennâge|
At the early stage of the test, the surface shine was lost by abrasion. After 300 spins, a part of printed wood grain was lost. After about 450 spins, vinyl film was damaged and some parts were completely torn.
*For the abrasion test of Tennâge, we needed to attach wooden sheet on the back of Tennâge. Total weight before test was 80.110g, total weight after test was 79.877g.
At the early stage of the test, the surface shine was lost by abrasion. After 300 spins, a part of wood grain was lost and backing material appeared. However, the backing material withstand until the end.
|Weight loss after abrasion of Tennâge was more than vinyl film. However, the damage by abrasion was more on vinyl film than on Tennâge.|
