Antibacterial coatings refer to the use of materials or substances that can prevent or inhibit bacterial growth on surfaces. These coatings have become increasingly popular in various industries, including healthcare, food processing, and consumer goods. They are designed to provide an additional layer of protection against harmful bacteria that can cause infections, diseases, and outbreaks.
Various methods and technologies are used to create antibacterial coatings. Some use chemical substances like silver, copper, or zinc ions, which can penetrate the bacterial cell wall and interfere with its functioning. Others utilize physical mechanisms like nanostructures or microtextures that can prevent bacteria from attaching to the surface. In the case of Nanokote we use a mechanism that does not release metal ions and is permanent. Metal ions can accumulate in water streams and become an environmental problem.
The effectiveness and durability of antibacterial coatings depend on various factors such as the type of substrate, the application method, and the intended use. Overall, they can help improve hygiene and reduce the risk of contamination and infection in various settings.
NANOKOTE Antibacterial Coatings can be applied to a wide range of substrates including textiles and fabrics, glass, plastics and metals.
