What is Bio-Lok®?

Bio-Lok® characterizes the surface of American Aristech Acrylics' sheets.

  • Microbe Shield: protection or defense against microbes. The non-porous nature of Aristech's BIO-LOK sheet defends against the penetration of microorganisms into the surface.
     
  • Free from added chemicals: Aristech's BIO-LOK sheets do not contain any anti-microbial chemicals, pesticides or other additives.
  • Non-Porous: without pores or holes. Aristech's BIO-LOK sheets do not have the pores or holes that represent a desirable habitat for microorganisms, such as bacteria, fungi and germs, as well as the food sources they need to reproduce and survive. 
  • Easy to Clean: Because Aristech's BIO-LOK sheet is non-porous all dirt is surface dirt that can be easily removed.
     
  • Durable: lasting for a long time, especially without sustaining damage or wear. Aristech's BIO-LOK sheets maintain their color and gloss over years of use with the appropriate care and maintenance.
 

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) on Healthy Water

The CDC website includes a section on Healthy Swimming/Recreational Water that covers a number of topics related to healthy living with pools and spas & hot tubs.

Within this section of the website there is a page specifically dedicated to health and safety as it relates to hot tubs. Click here to link to that page: Hot Tub User Information.

The CDC also dedicates a page to How Can We Prevent Recreational Water Illnesses (RWIs). Here they refer specifically to the following:

  • Recreational Water Illnesses (RWIs) are caused by germs  
  • RWIs are spread through contaminated water  
  • In pools and hot tubs with the correct pH and disinfectant levels, chlorine will kill most germs that cause RWIs in less than an hour
