Volánbusz Ltd. places paramount importance on safeguarding the health of its passengers. To this end, the company has been employing the Resysten, a Hungarian-developed, durable hygienic coating, on hundreds of its vehicles. Following the application of this special surface treatment, pathogens do not adhere to frequently touched surfaces for an entire year. The coating, which is invisible, colourless, and odourless, provides protection between cleaning intervals, ensuring the well-being of passengers and the company’s employees even during busy festive periods.
Since 2015, Volánbusz Ltd. has been utilizing the Resysten surface treatment technology on various internal surfaces of its vehicles, including passenger seats, the driver’s cabin, handles, handrails, and internal glass surfaces.
Due to the positive results, the Hungarian-developed, long-lasting hygienic coating was introduced on all Volánbuses operating in the Budapest agglomeration in 2021,
alongside the hygiene measures implemented during the COVID pandemic. A total of 176 vehicles, including 40 electric Mercedes-Benz eCitaro serving in the agglomeration, and approximately 30 additional buses during the Ukrainian refugee influx, underwent the Resysten surface treatment. In the fall of this year, a new fleet of 200 Credo buses, equipped with the special hygienic coating, commenced operations, transporting passengers across the country. The surface treatment of equipment on Volánbusz-operated vehicles significantly reduces the spread of typical winter season diseases and the transmission of illnesses among passengers.
‘The success of our longstanding collaboration with Volánbusz is best evidenced by the fact that this year, another fleet of vehicles has received the Resysten-developed special surface treatment. It brings us particular joy to contribute to reducing passengers’ exposure to infections nationwide during the holidays and ensuring a healthy period for the remainder of the year,’ CEO of Resysten Péter Lehoczky stated.
‘As a responsible service provider and employer, Volánbusz consistently maintains the cleanliness of its facilities and vehicles, continuously expanding its hygiene protocols with new procedures.
The Resysten nanotechnology surface treatment provides continuous protection on the surfaces of buses for an entire year, safeguarding the health of passengers and our company’s employees even between cleaning intervals,’ the Communication Directorate of Volánbusz Ltd commented.
Resysten develops and manufactures its durable hygiene coatings in Hungary. The application spectrum is notably broad, extending beyond public transportation to include certain domestic hospitals, shopping centres, sports facilities, and the manufacturing halls of multinational companies, as well as communal spaces. The company not only employs its surface treatment procedure in Hungary but has also demonstrated through numerous tests, including those conducted in England’s National Health Service (NHS) institutions, that it can effectively prevent bacteria colonization in the long term, contributing to the reduction of hospital-acquired infections.
Operating for a decade, Resysten has evolved from a family business into a globally present company. Their developed and successfully introduced durable hygienic coating keeps pathogens away from frequently touched surfaces for an entire year. With Resysten, the number of settled bacteria and microbes on any surface can be reduced by up to 99 per cent, effectively supporting cleaning and disinfection protocols and contributing to the sustainable operation of businesses and institutions.
