Broad-Spectrum Biocide and Antiviral Coating

Broad-Spectrum Biocide and Antiviral Coating

Ratings: (0)|Views: 42|Likes:
The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has developed a series of biocides that, when formulated with the proper resin systems, produce coatings and polymers that kill a variety of bacteria, molds and viruses on contact. The biocide component is similar to those found in many products on the market. The advantages of the NRL biocide stems from the novel design of the molecule, with one end being hydrophobic and the other hydrophilic. This structure causes the biocide to preferentially migrate to the surface, where it is most effective, while the resin or coating is still liquid. The structure also greatly reduces removal by leaching once dried or cured.
