How does an antimicrobial coating work?
Basically, an antimicrobial coated surface resembles a field of blades. The molecules form strong peaks that literally slit open the germs‘ cell walls. This results in the bactericidal, virucidal and fungicidal effect.
Where can an antimicrobial coating be used?
Wherever surface disinfection is indispensable. Primarily hospitals, old people’s homes or even doctors’ practices, i.e. in areas where minor infections can be potentially dangerous – for the sick and elderly. Under the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic, the problem of infection prevention has become part of everyday life and predestines antimicrobial coatings as solutions for the entire public sector: buses, trains, schools or universities.
How do antimicrobial and antibacterial coatings differ?
The advantage of antimicrobial coatings is their broad spectrum of activity. In contrast to antibacterial surface treatments, coatings such as LiquidGuard from nanoCare sustainably restructure surfaces on the nano-scale and thus guarantee permanent solutions not only through bactericidal, but also virucidal and fungicidal functionality.
What advantages does an antimicrobial coating from nanoCare offer?
The LiquidGuard antimicrobial coating provides a self-disinfecting surface treatment that has a lasting effect. The advantage of durability results from the modified surface structure, which allows carbon molecules to protrude sharply. This not only has a bactericidal, but also a virucidal and fungicidal effect. In addition, the surface structure of the treated surface is smoothed at the nano level in parallel. This makes the surface more resistant to micro-scratches and UV rays.
Do nanoCare antimicrobial coatings Protect against COVID-19 or corona viruses?
In fact, independent institutes have proven its effectiveness against the viruses influenza A and SARS TGEV. It can be concluded from this that the LiquidGuard antimicrobial coating is also effective against the globally rampant SARS-CoV-2 virus, commonly known as coronavirus, which causes the lung disease COVID-19.
