‘Hygienic Coatings' is not a recognised sector in most analysis of the Surface Coating Industry but it will rapidly become much more significant. The reason for a potential explosion in Technology Development and volume usage is the demand generated by increasing public awareness of the serious problems in food consumption and healthcare which may result from poor attention to hygiene in a wide range of public and private establishments. The carelessness begins with poor architectural practice which does not acknowledge the need for efficient regular cleaning. The architect needs assistance from the "Surface Modification" companies to design appropriate finishes and analytical groups to provide effective and economical visible and remote sensors. The physicists designing biocidal radiation systems can also play a vital part.
