Corning has developed a new breakthrough technology that has an antibacterial effect on the surface
[Weiwenxin TP World] The cunning aspect of the new crown virus is that it can survive for a long time on the surface of an object. Depending on the surface of the object, it can exist for hours or even days. Although the risk is minimal, it does exist. Corning recently announced the launch of a new technology that can effectively enhance surface antibacterial activity to minimize risks.
According to the report, according to previous studies, the virus can still be detected on stainless steel and plastic even after 3 days. In some cases, it can even exist on the surface of smart phone cases and banknotes for several weeks.
Although it is still not proven to be infectious, in order to reduce the potential risk, it is recommended to wash hands or use alcohol for disinfection, and reduce the habit of touching the face with hands to prevent the virus from entering the eyes, mouth or nose.
However, when using high-tech products such as mobile phones, it is difficult to ensure that the surface is always disinfected before use. The equipment must also be in frequent contact with the face and fingers. Perhaps it is an antibacterial business opportunity. iPhone and Android device screens are mainly supplied Shang Kang Ning recently announced its own new invention. Through this new coating technology called "Corning Guardiant", glass ceramic materials will have higher antibacterial activity.
According to Corning, Corning Guardiant is a new breakthrough technology. By adding copper additives to the surface of the existing glass ceramic material, the coating can kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, and has a highly durable antibacterial activity against the new coronavirus. Even in a 6-year wiping scenario, the paint is still effective against viruses.
Not only the new coronavirus that caused this year’s epidemic, research has shown that Corning Guardiant can also remove Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, or norovirus, which is considered the most difficult to kill, in less than 2 hours, even on wet and dry surfaces. It has the same bactericidal effect. In contrast, products using silver and zinc are only effective on wet contaminated surfaces.
It’s not yet certain when products using Corning Guardiant will come out, and what high-tech products we can see it in. However, according to Corning’s statement, they are cooperating with the PPG industry to report to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Provide registration application. Before approval, new PPG coated products will be provided under the name Copper Armor. ——Vwenxin "Touch Screen World"
