One of the disappointed news that’s evolved and have in common all the world is the pandemic virus otherwise known as COVID-19 (or SARS-COV2).
A study confirms COVID-19 lives for a long time on different surfaces: cardboard (up to 24h); plastic (up to 72h) and stainless steel (up to 48h). How is it possible to kill the virus definitely and to have a hygienic surface?
Basically, viruses have short live and die if there are no host cells to allow them to grow and to reproduce. The most common host cell, where COVID-19 can live and infect, is the bacteria. Thankfully, Protec S.T. developed special anti-bacterial PVD coatings (ABACO), the anti-bacterial PVD thin film able to completely inhibit the growth of bacteria and to guarantee a durable and pure surface, maintaining the usual PVD colors.
ABACO can reduce the virus existence thanks to the bactericidal action to the coated surfaces and our process engineers are working hard to develop even more new colors and coating solutions.
We are happy to share with you our results and we wish everyone to stay safe.
