The world has now seen the first fully anitbacterial phone thanks to the innovation of Bullirr Group, the global licensee for Cat phones. They have released the Cat S42 with advanced antimicrobual product protection, making it the first anti-bacterial phone. Every exterior component of the product has been treated with Biomaster antimicrobial technology and tested to ISO 22196.
The incredible success in inhibiting the growth of microbes on the phone surface has been achieved by the inclusion of silver ions during the manufacturing process. Many pieces of research have shown that our phones are home to thousands of germs. These same mobile phones arr handled and pressed to our faces. All the microorganisms can easily transfer back and forth between the hard surfaces of your phone and your skin.
“Throughout 2020 we have consistently been driving awareness of the importance of mobile hygiene for us all, but this is vital for those among our customers working within a health or social care setting, and those visiting multiple sites for their job,” said Peter Cunningham, VP Product Portfolio at Bullitt Group. “Using a Cat phone already allows them to have confidence that they can wash and sanitise their Cat phone regularly or between visits. The addition of antimicrobial product protection into the Cat S42 is another first for Cat phones, and will make the Cat S42 safer for users – such an important feature in the current climate.”
The Cat S42 is Biomaster-treated, thereby providing an incredible solution this is major problem. It features MIL SPEC 810H and IP68 and IP69 ratings, and surpasses a rigourous and repeated drop testing from 1.8m onto steel, including multiple drops onto every side and corner. It’s fully waterproof, tested submerged in water at depths up to 1.5m for 35 minutes. Like all Cat smartphones in the range, it is also put through vibration and tumble tests, salt mist conditions, and it’s built to operate in high and low extremes of temperature and to survive thermal shocks. Take it with you anywhere and everywhere. It’s built tough to help you thrive in challenging outdoor work situations and extreme leisure pursuits alike.
