Matexcel, a materials science research company, released a bunch of antimicrobial material products recently to help advance its customers’ lab research or product development.
There are a large number of microorganisms in the human living environment, from the daily use of fiber clothing, household appliances, sanitary ceramics, plastic film, to the steel and coatings for construction and drinking water disinfection treatment. They will multiply rapidly at appropriate temperature and nutrients, resulting in material deterioration, spoilage, mildew, and wound suppuration infection and other phenomena, a serious threat to human health. This makes antimicrobial materials become one of the hotspots in the research and development of new materials.
Antimicrobial materials are a new class of functional materials with bacteriostatic and bactericidal properties. Add one or several specific antibacterial agents to general materials such as plastics, synthetic fibers, ceramics, etc., and obtain antibacterial functional materials after compounding. The application of antimicrobial material technology upgrades common materials to antibacterial materials, that is, antimicrobial plastics, antimicrobial fibers, and antimicrobial ceramics.
The components of antimicrobial agent in the antimicrobial material have the function of contacting sterilization or inhibiting the microbial reproduction on the surface of material. Various products made of these antimicrobial materials can reduce the chance of bacterial cross infection, so as to achieve the purpose of long-term hygiene and safety. The purpose of using antimicrobial processing technology is to avoid the secondary contamination of products in the links of transportation, storage, sales and use, which subsequently causes the harm to the user’s health. The application of antimicrobial products provides a “once and for all” solution to prevent microbial hazards.
According to its official speaker, Matexcel now provides several antimicrobial material products including:
