Coatings and the importance of Antibacterial surfaces 


Coatings and the importance of Antibacterial surfaces and wiping door knob with antibacterial for killing coronavirus


      Antibacterial surfaces contain antimicrobial agents who destroy bacteria or their ability to reproduce. Same antibacterial properties will help destroy virus. Despite considerable efforts the problem related to infection persits. Today widespread need of antivirus protection and general surfaces disinfection is in all agendas as we have seen media giving wides ranges figures about life time COVID19 can last on different surfaces. London Imperial College researchers published a work showing viral DNA stayed over a bed rail in a hospital room for ten to 18 hours in surfaces, including door handles chairs etc. Paying attention to the level of hygiene is a widespread task in several industries. In this context the antibacterial coatings will provide a long lasting antibacterials protection, and can also improve the cleanliness of any devices or surfaces. Available techniques and materials for surface coatings can get very different efficiency results on antibacterial properties . Thereby, after seeing how some metals can be used as coatings, we will pay attention to the way these coatings are investigated in Medical devices and  food industry, to finally see how thin films which are used to achieve enhanced decorative colors for door handles, cutlery or plastics and metals in the faucet industry.
