looking for sticky or coatable sanitizing agent

looking for sticky or coatable sanitizing agent

I know this might not be the best place to post but I can't think of where else to do it.

I'm looking for some form of anti-microbial grease or paste to use in the door gaskets at a winery, we're having problems with film yeast and bacteria growing in these pockets and keeping them clean is a chore and a pain. Is there anything I could use to coat or fill in these spaces with that is an anti-microbial agent? I know of those "sterile" plastics that kill by creating an electrostatic charge that lyses cells, but I don't know if I could use that

any suggestions?

RE: looking for sticky or coatable sanitizing agent

There has been a lot work done recently with mold and mildew on the gaskets of front loading clothes washers. I would imagine that a lot of this is proprietary but there maybe some in the public domain.

I would contact ExxonMobile's Santoprene Division concerning your problem. I know there was some discussion about the mold problem on washing machines.


Just remembered Unconex 315 from Dow. You will need to give them a call for specific information about your problem.
