Uniworld Boutique River Cruises contracted Danish company CleanCoat A/S to employ its ACT CleanCoat solution across all Uniworld-owned ships. This makes Uniworld the first river cruise company to adopt this solution, renowned for its ability to render surfaces self-disinfecting after one application.
All ships will be sprayed with the antimicrobial coating, which is odorless, nontoxic and kills bacteria and viruses, including those in the coronavirus family. The sustainable and environmentally friendly treatment includes two components. The ACT CleanCoat is annually applied and will render surfaces self-disinfecting and purify the air. ACT ECA Water replaces traditional cleaning detergents to create the best possible conditions for the CleanCoat to maximize its disinfecting effect. ACT ECA is a salt-based, more sustainable alternative to other cleaning products; it leaves no toxic residue.
“CleanCoat is an incredible product that is absolutely safe, meets our strict sustainability standards and is effective. For advisors who want to be certain that everything that can be done is being done to ensure the wellbeing of their clients, this is it,” said Ellen Bettridge, CEO, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises.
